More from around the garden

Quite warm and sticky although the sound of currawongs calling this morning certainly meant that it is autumn, they only come down when there is fruit in the orchard. I went into the market while John went fishing, he tells me they didnt have a very good day at all which is sad. I wandered around the garden with my phone taking a few more photos, I have found a couple of old cameras but they need to have batteries. I did find a couple of rechargable ones but I think I need new ones. we will see. those cameras are ok but rather old. The colchiums are out in the garden. Our first Womens football premiership has just been played and the local Adelaide Crows won, this is the first AFL womens team to be recognised a bit of a feather in their hats as they come from near and far. John is home, the animals need feeding. Supposed to be very hot tomorrow. Horrid.

This and that.

After my fall in the sand yesterday has messed up my camera, sand in the lens. I can't get to Adelaide for a while to see if it can be fixed so I will have to learn how to work my phone camera, not happy as I love my camera. I have taken a few photos on my tablet which is OK around the house but... any way another of my daily stitch, yesterday I finished the purple tri chain stitch and today a running stitch.The last photo is one of the flowers in the garden.

This morning

In the vegetable garden, the sweet corn will be ready soon. On the beach, at last, these two fellows were having so much fun and I had just taken their photo when I fell flat on my face, having tripped on a piece of embedded sea weed. Poor John had a struggle getting me back on my feet. Must admit to feeling a little shaken. It was a bit damp while we walked, fine drizzle. I am back up from having lunch with Sarah and Tweetie Nimmo, it was lovely to catch up with Tweetie again, a while since she was last here.

2 more days of daily stitching.

A couple more days of my daily stitching. Slowly, very slowly I am filling it all in. Started a row of three individual chain stitch. I also filled in using more leaves around the last few flowers. We had to go to Adelaide for dentist appointments. Not really what I wanted today, after a bad night and yesterday's long drive home. I suppose I will eventually catch up.

Great week end

I am over tired and have made a mess of this blog post. I had a great time in Halls Gap, having a week end of fun eco dyeing paper and also playing with rusting and Making books. I didn't quite do all I wanted to but enough. It was pretty hot but I and my wonky back survived, now to drive home tomorrow.

Here in Halls Gap, in the Grampian.

I am sorry I didn't manage a photo of the flock of multi coloured hens that just went past my door! Any way a very tiring 6 hour drive, with one loo stop! I left just after 7 am, driving straight into the sun for a long time. Arrived at my motel and had a late sa dwich for lunch and then a collapse on the bed, now feeling a bit more normal but no phone coverage, there is free WiFi. . Oh and another of my daily stitch, I have brought it with me but not sure how much time I will have to do it. Think I am going to be pretty tired. Refuse to be an old lady!!

Two more flowers.

Back to very warm and humid again today I find it difficult after the long spell of mild days we have had. We did have a walk on the beach and went to see baby Lachlan and had a cuddle. I am still sorting out things that I have to get done before I head off on Friday morning. Not a lot of time to write this.
