Wet, 17mm of rain this morning

We had 20mm a couple of days ago and then this morning 17mm. Quite soggy underfoot. We had a friend out this morning to give an idea of the value of any of my paintings, he is a delight and although I am not sitting on a fortune so much that we like he likes too. No one wants walls of lovely paintings or of good old furniture unfortunately. After he had been we went in to get the mail and papers and then around the bay, tide was too high and on to Parsons Beach, not much of a walk but lovely to see that lovely beach, it is school holidays so lots of young surfers were ouyt and about. On the way home we saw this lovely echidna on the side of the road, having seen lots of photos lately of the Kangaroo Island ones I was struck by the difference in colour, ours are so much darker. It always gives me a thrill to see an echidna fossicking happily about. Trying to sort out this quilt I am finishing off. It may take me a while to sort it out as I usually do the binding by making the backing bigger, I need to do some judicious cutting I think. ANZAC Day tomorrow, for once John is not getting up at dawn to lay a wreath, he felt that for once he would like to not get up too early. I think age is catching up with all of us.

Goolwa wooden boat show this morning

A wonderful morning, into the market and then over to Goolwa before the crowds, had a wander, watched the paddle steamers, the Marion and the Oscar W and looked at people and boats, had a coffee and came home. I have had no internet for a few days so no posts. An accident by our front entrance last night, thank goodness we were asleep but not a nice one, not killed but badly injured. How could we sleep through all the things going on down there? All I can say is that it was just after I had fallen asleep.

This mornings walk

Quite warm and humid, overcast skies and thundering waves. A great walk.

I should be at a funeral.

I just couldn't face it a neighbor, only 60. I just couldn't go. Too much going on here. John has gone. We had an early trip to Adelaide and I have been too tired, too achy and really too upset. Flowers from the garden and a lovely collection of succulents my daughter gave me. Trips to Adelaide these days are exams ting.

A lovely walk this morning

The only trouble was I was a bit out of sorts this morning and perhaps not enjoying it or John as much as I should have. Came home to more tidying up. The spiders outside have been horrendous and stuff has piled up that shoudnt have been under the veranda . Now to let it dry out a bit and then get out with removing spiders webs. Thinking about it I suppose it has been a few years since I got onto it all what with replaced shoulders and knees and not feeling at all well. So much to do it is a bit of a worry.

Walking the cliffs and a new arrangement by the back door.

I managed to tire myself out today, the walk along the cliffs was gorgeous but tiring and when I got home I went on with getting rid of all the stuff by the back door and sorting a new smaller, easier to keep tidy arrangement. Both John and I are tidying, and getting tired.

George, my daily stitch and around the garden.

I am not sure why but I don't think all my photos were posted. There is always tomorrow. I love the colour of this rucifix orchid. George has to have his photo taken every so often and I haven't put up my daily stitch for ages. I have started to have a bit of a clean up. At the moment by the back door. Of course I have done too much so I am as always aching. We are having roast duck tonight, just because it was in the deep freeze for too long. I went in to the market this morning and then did my weekly shop, a day late even though down here the shops were open yesterday. Even so, loads of people around. I try to keep out of the town at Easter. On one of the blogs I am following some one was reading Georgette Heyers The quiet gentleman, knew I had read it and finally found it so nice to find I own a book and not have to buy it on my Kindle. I hope every one is having a good Easter. Well only one photo, I will try to add the others, this one was to show autumn has arrived.
