You can never have enough...
Good morning. 

Frost was on parked cars' windscreens this morning,  rare for us but a nice day in store. Minus temperatures for my daughter and family down south and the first of 5 has tested positive for covid. I hope they are not cooped up inside too long, with outdoor temps in single digits lately! 

Well done to your niece Venetia, a proud moment for the family. 

Good news OHH. I agree it makes sense to have you happily mobile and independant. We hope the batteries outlive my FIL, his scooter outings one of his remaining pleasures in life.  DH has done many repairs on it due to the wear and tear!

Look forward to seeing the finished tote KM, a rewarding project for you. 

No plans for the day,  if the cold wind is absent,  I'll get outside to continue weeding.

Have a good day all.

Good morning everyone.

A stunner of a day but its sooo cold. I can barely feel the tips of my fingers so have my fingerless gloves on.

I like that winz helps. Its like an interest free loan. And they have helped us n the past and Im very thankful. Hope the batteries arrive soon and you are soon hooning around the neighbourhood OHH.

I enjoyed my shopping yesterday, not the pain but it was worth it. treated myself twice lol.. Got a couple of pairs of men's striped socks from pak n save. They look like the self patterning wool. Im not normally a sock wearer but they were really nice lol. My feet are def warm.
And at reduced to clear they had packets of Donovan's Chocolate and raspberry covered popcorn. I like all three so figure I will like them joined together. I haven't opened them yet tho.

Off to see MrP later. The singers are there this afternoon so we will all enjoy that. I just hope they change the songs a little lol.

The lady who brought MrPs fishing gear came to pick up yesterday. I was sitting there thinking I wonder if she knows a guy I went to school with, the name is a local name. And yep she is married to him lol. So we had a good chat. She also used to be a reliever in the rest homes in the region, but now works on their farm. Small world lol.

You wouldn't believe how many spelling mistakes I have had to correct cos my fingers wont work lol.

Have a fab day everyone

One good thing about this restricted to barracks thing, I have hauled out one of the many retro suitcases housing UFO projects from the past. I developed a not so small obsession during my series of orthopedic procedures with their months of rehab, stitching wool tapestries. For a while I focused on kits to learn the skills and then branched out into table carpets and the like. Friends and family would give me new kits and wools instead of plants because mobility was an issue and I have ended up with way more than I could ever use. So, they are layered around the room at the moment as I decide prices and combination before listing them on TM. They'll go cheap because the market for them is a little niche it seems and sales are slow. But - in among them I discovered four tiny butterfly kits that I had quite forgotten about, I just might stitch those up, inspired as I am by KM! A good summer project perhaps?

Well Wellington has done a complete turn around and the sun is out - well at the moment anyway.

You will be happy to be mobile again OHH.

Lovely to hear that the baby is doing well Mica.

Thanks for your kind commentare my niece. She now has come down with covid but fortunately not really unwell. Finding re-organising travel is frustrating she was on hold to AirNZ for 3 hours this am and then the line fell out! 
Because she has come from overseas only a few days ago we have been advised to self isolate for 5 days too until she gets a PCR done in case it is a new strain. I don’t mind as I have quite a bit to do with the elderly and pre schoolers and would never want to put them at risk. 
We can travel home though as we will be isolated in our cars and then I can find ample to do to fill in the time.

Btw, did you watch Seven Sharp? And the Hu? Love love love...
No, had no clue they were on it but just found it now - they're brilliant, really love them. Just had to put Wolf totem on now, after seeing that. The guy who did great things with the recorder was a surprise for Ben Hurley, I think!

Finally got the second jab today & did a very small bit of pruning in the garden.

I fell on my face yesterday. Embarrassing, but I do that sometimes. I bent over to pick some lemons up from the grass under the tree and just kept going right on down, lol... In slow motion. Apparently it is amusing to watch. Fortunately the tree meant I could climb upright again and didn't need to yell for help, which would have made it double embarrassing. So very quiet day today, with an arm that is going to get very colourful as I used it to protect my face from the sharp edge of the concrete path. This is why I need my scooter, I am just not safe on two legs!!!

We used to be able to roll and tumble so easily back in the day, but now a simple fall is a thing to be dreaded. Tg I was lucky, again. And it is an excellent excuse to just sit in the sun with a book...

Oh, and batteries coming on Tuesday morning. Fingers crossed the weather is okay.

dammm OHH, hope you mend quickly Heart

The garden is weeded, boy that mulch makes a huge difference with weeding. So now I have to wait for the bins to be emptied so I can rid of the weeds. I refuse to put them in the compost as our compost never gets hot enough to kill the seeds so I end up spreading them around again. Lawns tomorrow.

Bed has been stripped, sheets washed and dried and bed remade. And a sultana loaf is cooking. A busy day but good to get it all done.

I might just hand wash those embroidered pieces so they can hang outside to dry. Or I might just sit in the sun and read (really like that idea, OHH lol).
Life is a one time offer, use it well

A wheat bag held on the bruises might help, also arnica cream is said to be good for bruising, if you have any. I now have a sore arm from the booster & if its anything like the first booster, will probably stay sore for a few days, so have had the wheat bag on it once already.

Yes, I iced it first thing, but it was already a lump, anticoag drugs are a pain at times like these. But it will be fine, like your sore jabbed arm Lilith, the weekend will see it settle down. And no more bending without something to hang on to!
