So, it seems that this is all I'm able to keep up with, blogging-wise, these days. So be it. Let's hope for more some day.
This has been my week:
We've had rain, sun, rain, rain, rain and more rain. Also a bit of sun. But mostly rain. There's not so many pictures of the rain, because on those days, I generally sit indoors to avoid looking at it.
I have walked more this week than I have in a long time, starting with a gruelling climb straight up a mountainside.
Ellie and I have done school indoors and out... today we went to the lake and interspersed our readings with periods of wading (Cold water is so relaxing, Mum!).
Our old van (see top left corner) has made her last trip... to the wrecking yard. I got all nostalgic - she was a good vehicle - but I don't miss her. And it's nice to have the carport back!
The flowers are absolutely glorious just now... my favourite spot is along the trail near our house. It was seeded with native wild flowers, and is full of daisies and foxgloves and lupines and I-don't-know-what-all-else.
I have my sewing machine back and functioning. My son tried to sew something with it, and managed to completely mess up its innards. I've borrowed a machine from a friend for the interim, but there's nothing like an old familiar machine to make you feel like you know what you're doing.
I spent two days working at the pottery studio where I take classes. First of all I made a huge mess, unpacking boxes after a show; then I tidied it all up, dusted everything and re-stocked the shelves in the showroom. I find that I really enjoy arranging things and making little vignettes.
And that's about it, I think. There's a blog post or two brewing in my brain... hopefully I'll manage to get them out in type before they evaporate...
