A bit of this and that
I have had a dreadful day, driven up to Adelaide, talked to a not particularly sympathetic woman and seen the room they want to put my mother in in the high care area of the nursing home.
I think my mother will hate it and it is a share room. I have had to talk to my other two sisters, one is on holiday in Broome and she is the one with the power of attorney and our decision was that we would not take it. Well then the blackmail began, if you dont take it and she falls you may not be able to get her back in, and when I finally rang to say we just couldnt take it told me that my mother would never get a private room any way.
I have been upset and had to drive the 1 1/2 hours home and shop etc etc when my brain was realing.
I hope I just drop dead!
So to the photos.
I have made two more beaded buttons, I did these while I was in Melbourne.
The lemon tree by the bedroom door is covered but is in its usual winter state of not many leaves, the geranium maderense leaves are getting bigger and I hope I am home when they flower.
This magnificent red gum is on the edge of the oval at the end of the valley and I have been meaning to take a photo of it for ages and I finally had time yesterday, not the best light but it came up reasonably.
Finally the sea was really rough yesterday morning at Encounter Bay, so much so that there were surfers surfing where normally there would be none. So I took a couple of shots, you can see the white horses in the first one and the second one has The Bluff and Wright Island in the background.
I do feel a bit better after that winge is off my back!
I rather think that tonight's quote is possibly appropriate, certainly I drank tea when I got home.
It is a Chinese saying
"Drink tea and forget the world's noises"
