Happy Weekend to you. I hope it's been a good day for you.
I have had the best day in ages, just at home, my favourite place, with my favourite people + dog + chook! Lots of gardening, moving stuff around, the usual washing + some lovely old, old, old, pure wool blankets, one of which used to be on my bed when I was 'little', and the other (pink) was an op shop find by my mum.
Here's my pics....
|Yes, I am prepared, and looking forward to the cooler weather.|
Bring it on!!!
|Second book by Lisa Verge Higgins.|
Loved her first one titled:
The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship
A quick trip to the library, made it with five minutes until closing time. Library café closed, bummer. But I got the book! I love my council library service. I put a hold on this book at about 10.30pm last night, and by lunchtime today, they had emailed me and told me it was ready for collection, and this is from one of the busiest libraries in Brisbane. And... it only cost me 80cents for them to rush around and organize that for me. Are you a library user? My budget dictates that I borrow novels from the library. If I come across a non-fiction book that I just have to own, I usually see if I can borrow it from the library first, to check it out, then if I still want it, I then add it to the 'wish list'. Currently on my wish list is.... Granny Chic by Tif Fussell aka - Dotty Angel
. My Heart Wanders by Pia Jane Bijkerk. Patch by Cath Kidston. So I keep an eye out for them on Fishpond
or give up my list when my birthday is coming round.
|time for a cuppa and a sit down|
|Enjoying the wonderful breezy afternoon, washing flapping|
on the old 'hills hoist'. Nothing beats it.
Finally, my new curtain for the hallway. I have kept forgetting to show you these! I am sooo thrilled with the way it turned out, and really makes a difference when the air-con is on, as it acts as a blocker for the cool air, which previously escaped down the hallway. Oh, and don't you love the fabric. I bought this piece nearly 10 years ago at Spotlight. It's been in my stash all this time, waiting for the perfect project. No point rushing these things!!
So that was today! I am tired but so happy with all that I've achieved. In fact, to finish the day, a cup of chai tea would go down well just about now. See you tomorrow!
