Offering hope to others through a loving word,

a thoughtful act, or a simple smile is the surest

way to lift your own spirit.

-Lain Chroust Ehmann.

A warm hello to you all and I can say it is very warm around here. The last two days we have woken up to 38C + and the days have been scorchers! Yesterday under the shade we recorded 46C so we mostly swam and drank water...the occasional cup of tea with Heather too.

The week just gone has been one of the most gruelling and my patience has been pushed to the limit. What I have left now is the patience of a Siamese fighting fish.....but I’ve managed to pull through and get on with things. My faith was also restored when at work three children came into the library and presented me with......


Thanks Room 1

Flowers, chocolates and also a card that the whole room had made for me. The card is hanging proudly in the library. Out of all the gifts, the card is so special to me and I felt like I was going to pop out of my chest!! Lol

I have decorated the house for Christmas and I’m getting into the mood of things. The hallway has some special dolls and Christmas gear that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside....


Made these great gift tags for my tribe....


Roll on Christmas

The crocheted wall hanging is coming along, these are the squares I have made so far...


Two fantastic books I found at the local library. The book on Italy is just so dreamy, and I have seen much of what is in there making it a very special book.


Lovely Italy

The craft book is too cute and I am already tagging pages to make things.


What lovely projects are in here!!

Hope all is going well to everyone out there in blog land. Three and a half more working days for me and it’s holiday time for about 6 weeks. Stay cool guys.

Cheers, Anita.

What sweet kids to give you those lovely gifts! Some of the schools in the USA are prohibiting the giving of gifts to teachers now. I find that quite sad.
