I continue to be extremely busy. People ask me what I do with my time now I am retired and in all honesty I struggle to keep up with the things in my life. I am thankful that my life is so full and busy and full of wonderful people.
I love to make things. At the moment I cannot keep up with all my craft projects.
I made a 'heat frog' for the birthday of P:-)'s eldest son. I am refining the pattern all the time.
I made M a birthday card with black ink and coloured pencils using Zentangles.
I didn't manage to finish the monster slippers I was crocheting for M as I ordered the wool and it took a little longer to arrive than I thought it would. I have almost finished one slipper.

P:-) and I are going away in our caravan on Wednesday. I might finish the slippers while we are away. I just hope they fit! M is 6 foot 7 inches tall.
On Saturday we had a picnic at Woronora Dam for M's birthday. He turned 36.

The cake was delicious.
I had Jasper the grand-dog to stay on Thursday night.
On Friday morning a catbird was sitting in the tree outside my window. You have to look hard to see it in this photo. It is just above centre. (I almost put in a better photo taken another day but thought that would be like cheating.)

For some reason this bird kept hurling itself against my window. It kept Jasper amused for ages. It didn't seem to be bothered by his barking at all but when I walked towards it, it flew away which is why I couldn't get a very good photo. But here are a couple of Jasper barking at the Catbird.

P:-) and I plan to go up to Davistown for a week. I love Davistown. P:-)'s family owns an old fisherman's cottage up there, right on the water.

The house is a bit decrepit so we take our caravan and camp in the backyard.

The view from the house across to Empire Bay is beautiful. This was taken at low tide last time we were there.

I look forward to hearing the Bellbirds as we drive down into Gosford.

Autumn is my favourite season - lovely weather for camping. So hopefully we will have good weather and I will have some great photos for my next post.
See you then.
