MAIN EVENTS over the past fortnight - my birthday, the grand final and a visit from fran and mike, delivering my archibald entry and having some time away from the big city.
OCT 20 My birthday was a lovely day of friends, food and family phonecalls. i had lunch with mia and sonja in mildura, seeing mia's lovely new home, then dinner with di and sam, fresh perch from the murray and an overnight stay. rene called from japan, gail called early - a great day
waking up to perfect weather
beautiful birthday flowers from di and the sky in the morning as i
drove home. skies up here are always wonderful
THE GRAND FINAL - well fran and i are cats fans of course, so we were excited and hopeful, in vain as it turned out :0( fun though to put the balloons out on the road for fran and mike's arrival and to have pies and champers while watching the game
terrible shot but the anticipation is there :0)
|etta's excited too :0)|
i've been knitting bears, intended to make one for etta but it turned out so big i knitted a second, now i'm tempted to knit a very small one she can hold in her hand.
Fran and I took a drive out to Perry Sandhills on a grey cloudy day. it looked pretty special after the rain, lots of things growing, interesting plants and the pink dunes looked wonderful against the dark sky
