Thank you so much for all the book recommendations for Son #1. I’ve made a list and can now head for the library, all confident like. I’ll post the list so anyone interested (Lazy Cow said she was) can copy it. Cos I’m community-minded too.
Remember the green post last week?
Here’s a blue post. I have a weakness for sky blue, particularly paired with chocolate brown. All pictures taken yesterday.
(My blog renovation was inspired by a knitting swatch I did recently of cranberry coloured yarn on pale duck egg blue needles. I was so taken with the colour combination that I mentally filed it away for future quilting projects, but was inspired to make a more immediate change in my virtual life.)
Ooh, slightly out of focus, I see. Although the plastic lizard below it is beautifully sharp. Let’s pretend I meant that.
Glass and metal dragonfly on a spoke, given to me by my mother when she visited at Christmas. She also gave us a yellow butterfly. They’re in my herb beds.
Yesterday’s ensemble. I warned you I only have one basic outfit these days, didn’t I? I just substituted the long sleeve pink tee for a blue one. I’m so unoriginal.
The glorious blue of the autumnal sky.
It’s been like this all week but ends tomorrow apparently.
Latest discovery at the local secondhand bookshop.
Wittily posed in front of my collection of Russian literature (from the days of my first undergraduate degree).
A late bloom on the dietes.
Vintage tupperware found at the op shop yesterday. One dollar each!
Son #3’s hat in progress. He is knitting it on circular needles, but as you can see every now and then he forgets which side is the right side, turns it inside out and knits stoically onward. It makes it more interesting, Mummy. You have to love the attitude of a seven year old.
Son #2’s underwater study. Painted one morning last week before school when he accidentally got up an hour early and then found he had masses of free time instead of the usual rushed few minutes before being bundled out the door.

Sorry I keep posting shots of this view. I can’t help myself. I wonder when the novelty will wear off?
I am enjoying colour coordinated posting.
