Books and Beanies


Knitting beanies for Bec at The Brush Rabbit and browsing Kinfolk Home from the library...




Made even more enjoyable by the addition of coffee and sourdough...


Check out Yarn Along to see what others are making and reading!



Spring is officially still 5 days away, but...
 the wattle is flowering


 blossoms are blooming


 lambs are growing


 ducks are...being ducks


the grass has been mowed

And I'm off to plant an apple tree!!

Progress...


...on the garage and woodshed...

 nearly finished




After much rain, and the river rising, the swan's nest was only just above water level...
 council workers raised the nest level with some hay


The river levels are down again now...

 see the eggs!!



On the Yarn Along front...
 hats for Haiti



Still reading The Girl Who Played With Fire (it's a big book...570 pages!!!)

Knitting beanies for Etsy and browsing my new mag from last week...


Spring is in the air!!

Weekend Winter Walk

Morning!!

Saturday sunrise from my kitchen window

First up, a quick trip to the monthly market to stock up on vegies...

Then a walk around the river...
 taken from the footbridge over the river at the spillway



and from the footbridge at the caravan park

There is a black swan sitting on a nest...
 in a rather open and exposed position

Checking her eggs...
last count I could see 6!


Although it's winter, there is still a bit of colour about...




I can't resist the bare trees...




Back home for my well deserved morning coffee with toasted sourdough and blue vein cheese, and a browse through my new mag in a little patch of sunshine...


I hope you are enjoying your day :)) xx
