Lockdown is crazy, time just flies - why?  what happened last week? well if i didn't have my photos i'd forget.

i did actually have an appointment so i got a medical permit to go into mildura.  it lasts 2 weeks so i'll be able to do a few things, so far i've bought polyester tops at the op shop to make masks, more wool for a jumper for me - i can't get enough of knitting - plus some wool for marg, who is knitting teacosies shaped like rhodies, hydrangeas and waratahs.  she's unstoppable despite her eyesight being so dramatically affected by macular degeneration.  indomitable is the only word.

i think knitting is a huge stress reliever and although i don't feel stressed on a conscious level, i reckon my neverending knitting projects are helping to keep me grounded in this weirdest of times.  

after my cable jumper i'm knitting a cowl to wear with it and another jumper in similar style, red wool with flecks.  

time to finally get rid of some of my old jumpers, i've knitted for over 50 years 😨 and have quite a few of those jumpers still - just taking up space.

AUGUST 12,  I'm here on my bed in near dark at 5.30 and it's bucketing down outside.  i don't know how long it will last but it's a wonderful sound.  the sky was purple about half an hour ago and there's lovely rumbling thunder :0)

there's water around from the great downpour a few days back and this morning i got well and truly bogged. after our knitting morning at the pub i just thought i'd drive the circuit over to thegoa lagoon and back home and on the way back i came across water all over the road.  it looked like a second dirt road led off and around back onto the road further up but the road surface was deceptive, it just gave way to slippery grey mud and i was stuck.  thank god steve hederics was home and came over in the landrover to pull me out   :0)
