A mixed weekend ...
It began on Friday with a funeral of a sort-of family member,
a sad occasion, although we did not know him well.
On Saturday Laura woke sick with a tummy bug,
she and Steve had to miss our big family party that afternoon.
She's doing better today, but still at home.
Emily and I enjoyed the party,
it was good to be with family and celebrate five birthdays!
On Sunday Emily began sewing a spacesuit for a dog,
for a science project.
Something I was apprehensive about,
but she is doing well,
Rana the floppy dog will look good.
Steve mowed the lawn - this was the before photo,
the violets above are thriving below the jasmine.
Last week I injured my knee playing futsal,
after a pain-free two seasons.
Turns out I have psoriatic arthritis, news to me.
Am off to the physio again today.
I've been hobbling around,
glad to be sitting in the sunshine when I can,
stretched out on the sofa
... sometimes crocheting while I watch one of my new DVDs
Hanger (and Mary Poppins) from Mum & Dad
|from S & G, pewter native hibiscus dipped in silver|
from Tanya, have been wanting to see Wives & Daughters again!
from A & A - can you see my reflection?
and looking forward to getting into these:
from Steve and all the family - yey for Book Depository!
I think I will need to institute an
Alexander McCall Smith Shelf in our bookcase
- these are only my new books of his!
Our building plans have been approved
and now we're waiting for some action from the building company
and a start date.
How was your weekend?
