Interesting weather

We had to be at Pt Elliot to see our GP this morning but went early to walk. We nearly got blown away and almost drenched at the last moment. Nice to be home and listening to the wind and the rain. My GP thinks I am depressed. and my diabetes is not behaving. Oh dear, but I dont want more pills for depression so I said no thank you, and Oh well life goes on. Although up to a point I like winter, I dont really like grey depressing days either. We are cleaning the house, inspection on Thursday.

Another 15x15 cm piece.

I like hand sewing these little pieces, scraps of ribbon and bits of hand cut felt. I also picked a tiny vase of wattle and a jonquil that came up in the front garden, lovely smells. Now clouded over but this morning a later walk for us, lots of dog walkers on the cliffs and in the far distance a whale breaching, too far for my little camera. Exciting though. I have just realized that my comments for this blog are not coming through as emails. I am now reading them but any comments I make you have to go to the blog and look. I don't like it, but I do like blogging and my blogging friends.

Another lovely morning walk.

We have been walking when we can, it is winter after all and sometime the tides have been against us. Also rather big surges but this morning was quite nice. Different types of sea weed on the beach and this one with its curly stem and deep purply, grey caught my eye. Love those curls. John is still doing family research and thinking of writing up a few articles. I have been hand sewing and trying to find my metal and stuff for the class I am doing soon with Mary Hettmansperger. Should be a fun class. Just need to find the tools etc. Must be in the container as they are not here. Soing more hand sewing too, relaxing my back, I hope.

The sea was quite interesting this morning.

Not much to tell. I had to be in the town by 7.30 to have a fasting blood test. Home and I was so hungry. A walk on the beach, the sea birds were feasting on a very sandy and very dead octopus it was quite large. Surges were coming in frm the low to our far south. I have baked a cake and generally tried to tidy up, we are both still aching. Not at all interesting'

One of those days.

Wet wild and windy, and now the sun is out! We have had thunder, wild squally winds that blew the empty rubbish bins down the street. Heavy showers with the squalls and then it all calmed down. We went to look at the sea, supposed to be big surges but when we went there was a notherly blowing so everything was flattened out. The sea was high though and the beaches were all covered in sea weed. No walk as John is still having problems with his back and I am not exactly mobile either. Thank goodness I got the washing done and in yesterday. More hand sewing at the moment. I think I need to use up some mince meat so shepherds pie for dinner. I am trying to eat our way through the deep freeze. No where near as cold as it was earlier on this week thank goodness.

we are both aching.

I am sitting doing a bit of embroidery, a 15cmx15cm piece. John is not well, and both of us are aching. Airports and planes??I hope it is no more but I haven't hurt like this for ages. Back on the pain killers. Our aged bodies are not as good ad they once we're. I spent the morning washing, normally John puts it on the line but I had to this morning. Floors swept too. With any luck with the wind the washing will dry. I think we expect rain tomorrow but it is sunny at the moment. John had been handing out how to vote cards for the bye election but has had to give up as his back is killing him. Normally I would but just can't. Not much fun getting to our age.
