It’s amazing what you can find when you go for a walk in the country in the middle of winter!:
Even though you sometimes have to use one of these:
From a wet, cold, wintery Melbourne….enjoy that summer warmth! But we’re all snug and cozy with a new electric blanket on the bed and plans for pre-cut firewood next week. We’ve got clean clothes, with our spiffy new washing machine working wonderfully, and have just had a nice weekend over at the in-laws’ saying goodbye to Faye & Wayne who are moving to Western Australia. Played “Go Fish” with Eb (a new game for her) and she painted my nails. Yummy meals too – for example, meatloaf, potatoes and greens, with choc. chocolate-chip muffins and ice cream for dessert!
In a few weeks we’re having Mum and Dad and Ebony spent the weekend. Should be lots of fun! And one more great thing to add to the list: a package from my family! YAY! Winter coat, clothes, a cozy robe, chocolate, a Paul Simon CD and pictures! We had fun opening it! Thanks so much Mom and Dad! (I’ll email you this week.)
I’ve been looking at volunteering a couple of days a week, and today put my name in to be contacted..we’ll see how that goes. Spending more time in my studio these days. I’ve been wanting to paint more, but some things need sorting out first… anyway, it’s been fun just cleaning, trashing, and organizing things.
Yep..things are all well in Wongaville. It may be wet outside, but our spirits aren’t dampened at all…. mmmmm, spirits… ;-)
