The year is, as years do, moving along at a cracking pace. As always it’s a mix of work, knitting, gardening, family, food and wine. I’d like to say I wish work wasn’t in that mix but frankly, it funds the rest of the good stuff so I guess it has to stay even though I’m busier now than I have been in a long time.
Here to share are some photos capturing lovely moments from recent weeks. They’re not the greatest photos because they’re often snapped in the moment on phones.
We atteneded a politically themed trivia night to raise money for the Queensland Flood appeal. The questions were all about Queensland politics and history. I contributed a sum total of one answer and it was about Queensland literature. The rest of the night I drank red wine and knitted the socks I’ve been working on since AUGUST 2010 for a friend. They’ll be finished one day.
I visited Alice and read her some stories. She loves her books so much. That morning when I arrievd, she grabbed a book out of her mum’s hand and thrust it at me. I got the message, loud and clear.
She reads so much that her mum often says to me, ‘She’s definitely your niece!’. I think I was never far from a book or ten as a child.
Last week I harvested my first peapod. I’m waiting a while to collect a decent harvest but this little pod pleased me so much. They were sweet and tender. As peas ought to be.
And finally, this was too good not to share. Alice received a little table and chairs set from my parents as an early 2nd birthday gift. I wasn’t present for this but wish I had been!
Fee sent me this photo of Miss Alice having a tea party with Buzz Lightyear. I’ve seen her make cups of tea for people with her little tea set before but have never seen her sit down and conduct a tea party like this. How quickly they grow! And doesn’t Buzz look thrilled with his red frogs and cold tea! I’ll be seeing Alice this weekend and hope very much for some of that for me.
Have a great weekend everyone.
