More clouds and a spider
The weather has changed, we have lit the first fire for the year, damp and overnight a lot of wind. Now calmer but who knows. I hope people are not bored with my photos of our walks, not a lot else is going on here, although I have just bought some blanket for a cot blanket for the next great grand child, only problem is I dont know what it will be so will go for yellows and a bit of pink or blue, the next project. I need one at the moment as things here are a bit fraught, not quite knowing what the future holds. We walked around the mouth of the Inman River today, the tide a bit high for the beach and a lot of swells coming in, this was also a bit more sheltered from the wind. We met a delightful airdale terrier named daisy as well but I didnt like to take her photos. My repaired knee that I fell on a few months ago has been worrying me a bit too, maybe the change in the weather. Too long a walk and I am knackered, I suppose age doesnt help but I dont really like to give in to that. Time seems to be flying by and there have been some hideous tales of nursing homes in the papers lately. Another thing I dont really want to think about! Yesterday I watched the big ANZAC day football match (Australian Rules) on tv while I sewed, a very moving start to it with a lovely rendition of the New Zealand national anthem by a, I think Maori service man, ours which I dont like, "girt by sea" I ask you sung by a girl, ok but not my favorite song. I have to say that the last post always brings me to tears. Back to do a few finishing stitches on that quilt, I forgot I hadnt stitched down the corners. Oh the spider! It was a very large orb weaver in a huge web that I couldnt manage to photograph but I was pleased with the spider. She was in some shrubbery by our walk, I like orb weavers although they always look a bit fearsome.
