A February Finish

The gift lap blanket is finished!  Will show you a better pic when I give it to the recipient :)
Finished Henning Mankell's Depths today.  An interesting book. A bit of a slow start, but persevere if you read it as it gets you in...
And will start his After the Fire tonight.
It's summer here...or so they tell me. 
9'C this morning and got the thermals out!

Keep warm...or cool!

This morning...
driving rain, gale force winds, thunder, lightning
Totally wild!

Good morning sunshine...

Walked to church this morning...
 from the top of the hill

 to the bottom

 over the railway line and into the caravan park

 over the walk bridge

 and along the east side of the river

 a short cut up the hill

and made it...just in time!

On the way home...over the road bridge...
 river looking good as always

 over the rail crossing

 my local library and online access centre

 main street...very quiet on a Sunday morning

 and even quieter

All that walking made me for lunch...another 'one bowl wonder'...
fetta, lamb and rosemary sausage; carrot, celery, onion, butter beans, red cabbage, broccoli, quinoa, pine nuts, walnuts, currants, spices-curry, cumin, turmeric, caraway seeds

And now for a quiet afternoon...
Enjoy yours!

Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny's Yarn Along for February...

Re-reading Essays in Love by Alain de Botton.  Read it a few years ago and thought I'd like to re visit it.  Also still working on my 'mystery crochet project'.  Should have it finished by next month's Yarn Along and be able to show you properly.
If you'd like to see what others are reading/crafting, the link is HERE.

"Oh, Hi, Marnie"

Me: So what did you think of the Three Billboards movie?
Marnie:  I didn't like it.
Me: Why not?
Marnie:  Too much blood (she has a blood phobia)
Me: Do you think that's why Denver didn't like it?
Marnie: Probably (he also has a blood phobia)
Me: So the rest of the movie was ok?
Marnie: It was a hoot! (sarcastically)
Me: So what did you like?
Marnie: The scenery was nice
Me: What scenery??
Marnie: The countryside and the little country town...
Me: Oh
Marnie: And the story line was good, but not enough swearing (sarcastically)
Me: Yeah...I'm sure they will improve on that as new movies come out
Marnie: Yeah
Me: So it wasn't the movie that you didn't like...just the blood?
Marnie: Yeah

A day in the life...
(and I don't know where she gets her sarcasm from!)
