It is Saturday morning here. The sun is shining (sort of), and there is a gentle breeze and lots of clouds. I can hear birds chirruping and a plane off in the distance, so it is all quite peaceful feeling.
We had an awesome sunset last night, such intense orange-red colours that I wondered if there was smoke in the atmosphere. My photo barely does it justice.
Yesterday I dropped my large cake mixer off at a charity shop. It is simply too heavy for me to lift now, and I seldom do any baking so it was time to move it on to someone else.
Naturally, I had to wander around the shop afterwards. Retail Therapy is good for the soul!!
I spent a grand total of $21.50 and came home with: a long scarf, a book about cooking root vegetables, a Famous Five book, a book about decorating your home according to the seasons, a baby’s frock that I think will look good on one of my teddies, two old-style prints (one of spring fruits and the other of autumn) (already hanging up in my room!), a tin to use for a teabag caddy, a china figurine set of a couple enjoying a cup of tea, and a sweet little hand-blown blue glass bird.
After all that excitement, I called in on a sister-in-law and spent most of the rest of the day visiting with her.
Enjoy your weekend everyone,
