Autumn is gradually coming in; I’ve had my first soft-leaf-shuffle while out on a morning walk. I do like a good leaf shuffle; they need to be at least ankle deep leaves and, after carefully checking there’s no-one else about, I really swish my feet through them watching the leaves scatter and tumble, all their colours roiling around. Takes me back to childhood – bliss! Some mornings I’m having to wear my sleeveless zip jacket as it’s a bit nippy and other mornings it feels just like a Summer morning. We’ve had some very cool nights, great for sleeping, but also some warm ones. The days have been typical beautiful Autumnal days, but with a few hot ones thrown in – most unusual for Melbourne in April. And the leaves are stunning at the moment, especially set against brilliant blue skies, and the dappled light of early evening Love the way the sun is shining through all the leaves in the above pic, with the network of dark branches and all the colours of Autumn in the foliage.
And talking of early evening, the sun is setting so much sooner now, particularly as Daylight Savings has ended. With the days drawing in more quickly, I’m picking The Golfer up in the almost dark these days.We were out and about today and The Golfer asked if I’d like to stop in at Tim’s Bookshop – no need to ask twice! These will be my “readings” for the next little while. Garry Disher is an author I’ve read before (he sets his books in Melbourne/Victoria – always a treat to read about your home town/state), but the other two are new authors to me. Shall let you know what I think.
With the promise of cooler nights, I’ve hunted out a quilt top that I finished some time ago, and with other friends starting to piece their “Dogwood” blocks, decided I need to get this finished before they do theirs. The race is on!
Eating // lots of soft food at the moment after a trip to the dentist – not my favourite place to be!
Drinking // on warmer days lots of water, on the cooler ones, lots of herbal tea
Feeling //relieved to be rid of the pain in my mouth!
Making // stitching up a table runner kit I bought (and started) a little while ago and it includes some embroidery so that will be fun.
Thinking //of all the quilting I can do in Winter……….
