This has been a busy week, on Monday we walked and I bought a new skirt and top. Very reasonable but useful. Tuesday I started to do some free motion embroidery, I didnt finish it until the end of the week! Wednesday I went to a friends place for lunch, it was a lovely day and we all sat outside in the gazebo. Thursday we walked again and then John had to fix a leak in a hose, he got rather wet and muddy. On Friday we had an early walk and saw a lot of birds on the reef as it was low tide, there was a large grey crane. After that we went shopping. Saturday John went fishing and on my lone walk I saw a ray of some kind in the water, actually only the tips of its 'wings' but I knew what it would look like. Sunday I went up, with the girls and their ponies to the Led day for Welsh Ponies at the Adelaide Autumn Royal Show and spent some time there, it was hot but our Welsh Mountain stallion, Rivington Ascot was a star and came home with Supreme Welsh Pony as well as champion ridden welsh pony so we were very pleased. I found driving up to Adelaide and back pretty tiring, am I getting old or am I just a wimp these days. Today it is back to housework.

This morning things almost seemed to be floating it was so still and then every so often a wave rose up out of almost no where, it was warm and humid and beautiful. John was fishing so I went in to the farmers market early, did a couple of other jobs and then went out to walk, not as much fun on your own but I did see something wonderful, the twin tips of a ray breaking the still surface as it swam over the shallow reef. Go to my other blog (on the side bar) for a little more on this.

Yesterday I went to lunch at a friends place, a lovely day and we sat out in her gazebo where this little male blue wren came to eat some of the crumbs. Knitting was going on hence the ball of wool, He was such a friendly little chap. This morning we went walking and this large Pacific Gull was wandering along the beach beside us. I had to take his photo. It was a lovely morning, the waves were thumping and the surfers were taking a few hours off from work (or school?) An oily looking sea and then suddenly the large waves rolled in. A morning to remember.

Workshop on the web had a how to by Gina Ferrari, I love what she does but some how I dont think I am Gina, this has taken ages and looks really messy, I suppose if I practice it might get better. Free motion on my machine. Practically I think I need a new chair as I am not terribly comfortable. Just love the tutorials on Workshop on the web, Maggie Grey does such a great job.. We have walked the last few mornings and here are a couple of photos I took the first was this morning and the second was yesterday when we walked down along the cliffs at Petrels and to the next little beach, I liked this lovely piece of seaweed caught in the rocks during a very low tide. We are still cold, not a lot of rain, just the odd bit of drizzle today but really cool, I have had to find some warmer clothes! Almost time for a fire, although they say that the week end is warming up again.
