But at least the sun is managing to poke her nose through the greyness every so often to lighten the sky. I think the forecast is for improvement, I live in hope!
Yesterday I dropped off two boxes of stuff I had sorted and bagged for the Hospice shop in town that they gave me last week to bring home. Thinking that was it for a while I was given another boot full of bounty to sort through. I quite enjoy it as I can sort in the evening in front of the TV, and I just haven't had any Fridays spare to go in and help in the shop. So I call this my 'HOMEWORK'.
Did you spot this amongst the stuff in my boot? Well I picked it up for $5 and it is perfect for getting into the top cupboards in my kitchen.
I visited a dear friend yesterday, a visit that was well overdue. Sometimes I mean to catch up with people but it just doesn't happen, so I made it happen yesterday. We had a lovely catch up and she gave me these two gorgeous old patterns. I always seem to leave her house with something from her.
I was top to toe in red, black and white yesterday,
and I layered lots to beat the chill in the air.
My shoes reminded me of a Lady Bird.
I got baking in the afternoon and made Banana Bran muffins, which I tasted when visiting the lovely Julie from Threadbear Cottage a while back. Mine weren't as fluffy as hers but still tasted pretty good.
I also made some no bake muesli bar, which some found it's way to my work this morning. It looks healthy and it sort of is, apart from the honey, peanut butter and brown sugar that glues it all together. But trust me it is divine. If you want the recipe just ask and I will email it to you.
I had to dig out a woolen coat this morning to beat the chill outside. I only need a coat for outside as work is pleasant and most shops are more than warm enough. I really need to pack my summer duds away and drag out the winter woollies, this is when I have a major sort and cull of clothes and shoes.
Speaking of Woollies, I found this gorgeous cropped cardy today and had to have it. The photo is showing it more orangey when in fact it is really more reddish. I bought it in a cute little recycled clothing shop in Frankton.
Poor old Joan is in full on molt at the moment and looking pretty rough, if she looses any more feathers I will have to start knitting her a top!! Seems so unfair that they molt as the weather is chilling off.
Check out that dark sky above the line up of sparrows. This evening there was a slight pink tinge to it so fingers crossed tomorrow will be beautiful.
I will jump like that if it is fine tomorrow!
