Friends are one of the nicest things to have and one of the nicest things to be.
Hello everyone, how lovely that you have joined me today. I hope I have found you in good health and that you have had a wonderful week. I’ve had a fantastic week, full of excitement at going back to work, wishing my darling friend John a Happy Birthday and incredibly fun creations in the hand making area. My week was topped off with a visit from my third son, whom I love to pieces. It was so good to see you Corey. xx
We Australians are pretty casual so please excuse the hairy one with no shirt on.
Hanging around the kitchen, the room full of laughs, love and fun.I have been busy crocheting more beanies for my collection and with each of these I have made a pair of booties to match. They are all made from a basic beanie pattern, using different colours.
Usually I am busy stirring up Heather the feather any chance I get,
How about these felt aliens? Aren't they cute! Heather has added all sorts of bits to them and they look really fun.
In Australia right now, on my side of the country....we are having heavy rains and flooding. Over the east side, they are having incredible hot hot weather. After non stop rain for days and days...this is the bridge close to our home. Most of the time, especially through our warm months, there is no water at all in river. The picture below shows you how close Taylor Street bridge is to breaking the banks.
Our Mortlock river is flowing so fast, that even hearing the roar of the flowing water at the night time was rather strange. I was but a small girl the last time I remember a flooding of this size, so it has been a rather long time since flooding on this scale.
Old River Mortlock...
You have been with me all my life. As a child you gave me a place to play; to extend my imagination; spend time with friends and a place to sort my thoughts out. In recent years I have ignored you; told you that you smell; been disappointed in you and just driven straight passed you without a glance.
Today I want to thank you.....for holding your sides strong enough to keep the water from flooding us and keeping us safe. I now have been reminded to appreciate you; to remember all those fantastic things you gave me as a child and to be thankful in general.
A good Sunday to you all and during the week I am going to try to play catch up with all that has fallen by the way side since Mother Nature unleashed her weather on us. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the beautiful week ahead.
Ciao, Anita. xx
