I will never be money rich, but I will always be rich in life and happiness. I spent the last week tootling into work, doing my thing and then enjoying my 'me time'. I have a lot of 'me time' these days and it agrees with me totally. So what have I been doing in my 'me time'?
It has been rather warm of late so my potted plants have been getting hand watered, less waste and quite an enjoyable task, this is happening a lot.
I took photos for a friend of her dear grand daughter,
Miss nearly three!
Last time I saw Miss nearly three she was Miss nearly one, so she has grown quite a bit since then and as cute as a button!!
My friends daughter, not the mother of miss nearly three, has been sick for the last two years and been keeping herself occupied by crocheting these amazing dolls.
My photos do not do justice to any of these beautiful stitched creations. For someone that had never crocheted she certainly has a talent. Great therapy for her too as she recovers from her illness.
I bought this darling wee basket off trade me for $3 off an elderly woman having a clean out. Too cute! I have wandered the op shops but alas there is nothing to declare to you all worthy of a photo. I did find a pair of those petticoat type pants that are fantastic under a frock on a hot day, stops the sweaty betty thigh problem!!
I noticed the house in between the church and the school next door to us is on the move. Most people leave the neighborhood but don't take their house!!! Three days later it is still sitting on the back of the removal truck, maybe they had a change of heart?? I am interested to see what happens to the land it sits on when it does leave. I also wonder where Father Ted will now live, not really his name but I do not know the man so it is the name we here gave him.
Oscar got a lovely leather bean bag that he isn't totally convinced is a good idea. Maybe in winter he will appreciate being up off the ground all snugly.
I passed a paddock full of tall dried grass with a broken shed that hinted I should stop and photograph it so I did.
I dyed my hair the other night, I seem to get the urge at about 10pm and this is when the colour change takes place for me. I did warn TOF as he went to bed that I was doing it so he didn't get a shock the next day.
So I am a Red Head, a Ranga, a Ginger Nut, a Carrot top, take your pick, but I am defo Golden and I LOVE IT!!!! I chucked another blonde over my fading hair colour and crossed my fingers that I wouldn't go YELLOW, not a good colour for hair. So Orange I can deal with gladly because I actually really like it and I think I can get away with it because of my skin tone.
Sheba thinks it's all just hilarious!!!
There was a visit to Dawn as she had emptied her kiln of goodies!
How gorgeous are the Bird Men?
Tree necklaces and Onesie Bunnies.
Tea light candle houses.
My favourite new thing is the Block Totem.
Each piece is so amazing to see.
So much work goes into these and the final result is stunning. My friend is so very talented!!
I thought you all deserved to get a closer look at the fabulous Bird Men.
The heir came and picked up Sheba to take her on a doggy play date with a friends puppy. She adores the heir and loves going in his car. Up front for her.
Oscar has spent a lot of time snoozing as it has been slightly warm around here. We won't complain because it is Summer and we do appreciate all the glorious sunshine!!
But it did get to 30* today, our HRV thingy showed 30 inside and 48 in our roof, I could probably bake bread up there!!
TOF got to go fishing so we have been dining on Snapper for the last two nights, yummo!!! The weekend has been blissful and HOT so we have been chilling under the ceiling fan watching Spartacus DVDs, crickey there is a lot of blood and gore and rumpy pumpy!!!
Getting closer to my natural colour slowly, by the time this starts to fade I might be able to return to being a blonde. In the mean time I am going to enjoy my new colour!!
Mine all need a good watering, so hopefully I will awake early tomorrow and be able to give them a big old drink before the sun gets out.
