ANOTHER WEEK ON THE RIVER

SELF ISOLATION is pretty much situation normal here. 
i haven't visited anyone or had anyone here, situation normal  - just a visit to the supermarket every now and then, trying to keep it to every few days instead of daily. 
they've put black gaffer tape crosses on the floor at the IGA checkout now -1.5m apart, that's where you stand while you wait.   also messages from a calm female voice over the PA system recommending standing 1.5m apart,  there's hand sanitizer at the door which i use as i enter and leave.   it's like a science fiction movie.  and yet we've all adjusted.   
sunny says brunswick st where she works is almost deserted, only about 5 people on a tram.   i'm hoping they'll move out of the city to warrandyte ,  i'd certainly relax.
i'm hardly listening to live radio at all, a little bit in the morning just to check if new rules are being imposed.   otherwise podcasts about film, interviews etc are the order of the day while i work on my book, knit, sew and sort stuff.   the storeroom is tidier but i think i'll have a second go and really throw things out.
morning walks across the golf course are still fine and an exchange in the newsagent is my daily human contact.
Phone calls are good, i've had at least one good talk with friends each day.





it's good to see
rene and family
home in time
for cherry
blossom season



when i visited

marg's sister
in castemaine
i loved the 
comfy jacket
she was
wearing. so
i found a 
pattern and
some soft
drapy boucle
knit and
made it, 
nearly finished



KNITTING  - what a wonderful excuse to sit and watch endless seasons of shows on stan and netflix.  great movies on sbs on demand too.


THURSDAY NIGHT DRINKS were continued online this week, it was fun to share our drinks and locations on email, i made an
impromptu cocktail from champers and blood plum juice.   i had planned to create a real one, with gin, fresh lime and blood plum juice but realised too late in the day that it wasn't actually wednesday, it was thursday already!


on facebook i saw
a post from dee to
say the Darling
lilies were out at
Thegoa Lagoon. here
they are, they flower
rarely in different
spots, usually after
a heavy rain


 our local caltex servo has two long rows of magnificent iceberg roses which are kept in top condition by local arthur o'connor.  he also tends marg's front pathway columns of icebergs, he obviously knows his stuff
 morning walk across the golf course
