Peace does not mean to be
In a place where there is no
Noise, trouble or hard work,
Peace means to be
In the midst of all those things
And still be calm in your heart.
That is the real meaning of Peace.
Hello to you all on this sweltering morning! The weather man told us yesterday that we would be in for 46C today and he wasn’t kidding!! Lol At 8am I checked the gauge and yep, it is already 41C. The garden has been watered, along with the tree branches for the birds, chooks let out for an early morning scratch, before it gets too hot, washing brought in and folded and now we stay inside as much as possible.
I took some pics of some bird life hanging around our yard this morning, the poor things are in for a hot day.
The little mudlarks appear similar to our magpies but are smaller in size.
I had to click the camera quickly to catch this shot of a honey bird checking out the flowers, as they are very fast.
Hoping my shade house survives the heat today!!
This week I found a fantastic crochet book at the local library and found inspiration from one of the patterns.
This is what I’m making right now. It will be a cushion cover, crocheted in 8 ply yarns.
The best thing about this project is using up those really small lengths of yarn, the ones that aren’t big enough for a whole granny square but can be used for smaller sections of one.
A doll in the making,
I still have to make her face and add clothing. She will probably come to the library with me.
As hot as it is I can’t help but get cracking on stitching up these crocheted squares that a work mate gave me.
All the squares are done differently, and in different colours, but it will be a mighty fine blanket when it’s finished.
Some of my favourite things.....
This is one of my favourite miniature teapots, I just love it.
And a dear little wall hanging made out of ceramics from Heather the feather.
And of course.....
Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum, Italy.
It was lovely sharing some time with you and hope you had a nice time visiting my blog this morning. I need to buzz off now and decide if I’m going to bother my husband (a wonderful pastime for me and richly rewarding, in my eyes!!), or will I start plodding around doing bits of housework? I think I’ve decided already. Lol Fun a fantastic Sunday, stay happy and safe.
