Amidst the dreary-ness and whining of being struck ill with influenza, today I began clearing up my creative hamlet of our home. I am aiming to get it redefined and let more light in to the room. I have to get rid of our old dining table - gone are the days for now of having two families over at once and being able to sit around our lovely big table. It is even too big for a craft table. We may just move again in the next year or two - depending on the Mister and his job. I love my small home, but it is tricky to invite people over for a meal... this is probably the only thing I miss about our old house - a bit of space inside.
So I thought I'd take some happy snaps of what's going on today. I was delighted to be able to give my squirrel a home! It makes me smile as I imagine and reminisce of squirrels on my window sill when I lived abroad.
My basket to re-stock the stall is filling, tagged and recorded in the inventory book.
Glorious sun shine for the bigger painting projects. You should hear all the little birds whistling away - I felt a tad like Cinderella working away with the birds!
My darling Miss G with permission from Master S, picked me our first daffodil - actually is was from Master S's own garden. A blessed gesture to help me feel better. And the orchids - aren't they divine! My friend from University bought me a plant a few years ago, it flowers each winter.
We have been reading some Swedish folk tales. The children loved the relation to seasons - Winter for us now. My knitting has not progressed this week, I wonder if I will finish the jumper for Master J before Winter's end? Do you like my little rabbit? I have had it since I was a little girl - now these wee creatures are everywhere I look in stores.
Enjoy this beautiful Melbourne sun to all you locals! Happy days to you - I hope you are feeling fine and dandy! Check out more yarning along here with Ginny - I love this blog.
Much Love Rach xo
