Buongiorno a tutti! Good morning everyone!🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
A beautiful morning to you all! This morning I wake up to the amazing sound of rain, and an indication that our autumn is slowly trickling in. There's a chill in the air as the cold wind invites itself into my kitchen. Such a nice change from the truly tough summer we had this year.
The cold weather makes me pretty excited because, though the hot weather made no difference to how much knitting and crocheting I did, the cooler weather is nicer to work in. I treated myself and purchased these lovely rolls of yarn. They are 150gm rolls of loveliness and I'm looking for the right project to use both. I have had some fun in making little bootie and hat sets for babies.
I will be selling them on line because, as everyone knows, we cannot yet have group gatherings but the sales can still go on via internet. I am happy with the colours I found to make the sets in and I'm not sure about you all out there, but....good yellow tones are a bit tricky to find.
And the hats keep rolling in.
It seems like I've been treating myself a lot right now....another visit to my favourite shop in town....a beautiful pair of shoes and a cotton scarf!!! I've worn the shoes already, what a comfortable pair of shoes.
Right now the school holidays are happening and one of the projects on my list was to tidy the yard. What luck, 25 600 x 600 pavers came up for sale and I was there so fast to buy them. My lovely husband loaded all of these heavy pavers into our vehicle and then the mammoth task of unloading and moving them into our yard. We were very tired after doing that but then the next day...the other hard work started.
So here is one area that was transformed.
And my Italian area also received some cheer.
I'm going to get some flat rocks from a farm to finish off the edges.
I sit here and the places my thoughts take me 💞💕
Now I have my sight set on this area. I will be replacing the plants that were in the hanging baskets, the summer was fierce. Maybe you can give me a few ideas. The side wall is part of my sewing shed, made of tin. I welcome any suggestions.
Oops....more woolly hats popping up. They're almost popping up like mushrooms around here. 😁
So...there is one more week of holidays to go and then I return to work. In this week, full concentration will be on the yard, new stock for my on line sales, doing a couple of medical appointments and catching up on general tidying.
During this time of isolation, I'm reflecting on the things that really matter to me and leaving all the unnecessary things behind. It has given me, and I would say the whole world, time to have a good long look at ourselves. Where can we improve ourselves ; how can we change in how we treat our environment ; living life to the fullest? We have this time to do that thinking. 🌏🙏
I wish you all a beautiful day, stay safe and send love to all corners of the world.
Ciao, Anita. 🍓
