random

A few random shots...

On my walk yesterday morning at 7am...
 Quamby Bluff (through the fog) from the top of the hill near the start of my walk



 St Mark's Anglican Church spire (through the fog) from down by the river


the sun coming up as I headed home



Remember this blanket that I made recently and took to the Alpaca Shop?  Well...it sold!!

my retro granny blanket

So I decided to take these two blankets down as well...after all...how many blankets does a girl need!!
 hoping someone will buy these too


From the garden...
 the bounty


 apple, rhubarb and blackberry crumble...from the bounty



And on my walk this morning...

 the amazing sky just before sunrise


 the mists of (no...not Avalon) the Meander River


just because it's pretty...and the sun was catching some of the trees and turning them golden
 
 
Have more tomatoes cooking for relish.  I think they are ready, so off to bottle them!
 
No time to get bored :))
 
Enjoy the busyness of your day...it makes time fly...

I'm in!!!

Been in my new house a week now :)))

Still getting the house in order, so no pics yet, but here are some of the garden...

 mostly herbs


 a camellia, plus...


 love my woodland garden (on the shady side), roses on the fence, a BIG greengage plum tree and the shade house in the background


 fish pond (with 2 fish) which I would like to turn into a water feature/fountain


 herbs from another angle...and an olive tree!.  I've always wanted an olive tree :))


 the out of control vegie garden


 more vegie garden, back sun deck...and views...
 
Not bad eh!!


And for Yarn Along...





I'm knitting this jumper.  I knitted one years ago for myself (unfortunately it got waylaid in one of my many moves) and really liked it, so doing another for winter...

And reading let me sing you gentle songs, which I picked up for a couple of dollars at the op shop.
Love the setting (wintery Swedish countryside) and the slow, gentle storyline and writing style.  Such a good bedtime read...

Time to light the wood heater and settle in for the night...
