Sunny Sundays but not for everyone

 We are having a last burst of sun here in Adelaide after a fairly mild Summer. We do need rain but the skies are not being sunny to our neighbours in New South Wales as they are having far too much rain. As if our country has not endured enough with the devastating bushfires of 2019/20, followed by the world pandemic and now severe flooding. Parts of Sydney have had to be evacuated and we witnessed on the news a home floating away belonging to a young couple who were to be married yesterday. Farmers have also been hit with a mouse plague so one wonders how much more they can take. So we are thinking of you all in the affected areas as we have visited and stayed with some of you on our quilting travels. Stay safe and our thoughts are with you. Meanwhile we are grateful to be safe and enjoying the sunshine as it shines into our living area. We have had to resort to an extra outdoor umbrella since the neighbours peach tree was removed but life is good......

The grandchildren bring us joy and we have Beau and Maisie for a couple of hours after school each Wednesday so two days included homework with Beau reading a story........

Emily shared some lovely images including these from the past couple of weeks including the thumbs up from the dentist........
Larry and I had a trip to the city just for a wander taking in some of the Adelaide Festival atmosphere including a banana playing the keyboard!......



Signs of Easter are just around the corner.......
And we have a new pigeon in the mall along with the pigs 'Truffles' and 'Horatio'........
From this vantage point I managed to capture some of the old facade and with a tweak on the camera made the image look old.........
One day we enjoyed a cuppa with friends and enjoyed seeing Kym's latest woodwork project. His work is quite incredible with such intricate detail that must take so much patience.........

Last weekend I took myself to the city on the train searching for some scarves for my head while this jolly hair tries to grow! It was nice having a day to myself where I could just wallow in my own thoughts.......

So we do hope sunny days come soon for those who need it especially our friends across the border x

  2. did you find some nice scarfs for your head while your hair continues to grow? I am so glad you are done with chemo now and can begin to heal. you show such pretty pictures - I wondered if you would need to find an umbrella to shade your patio when the neighbor cut the tree down - I'm sure they never even thought of you loosing your shade! I read on one persons blog from Japan that a whole forest was cut across the road from her opening up her whole area to a complete new scenery and it has taken her quite some time to adjust to the new look. Hope you are getting your strength back

  4. The floods are pretty bad, It's hard to imagine what it's like for everyone affected. The children are growing and look like they enjoy Wesendays after school, not sure how much homework gets done but they look like they're having fun. Glad you are feeling a bit better now Michele, hope you keep improving so you can get on with life and lots more sewing. Take care, ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒž

  6. Looks like a fab trip, Michele. You and Larry are such good travelers and it's great that you share your journeys with us. Stay safe. Will pray for NSW. We need rain here also. The rainy season is coming to a close in a couple of month and we've barely gotten a 1/3rd of what is the norm.
