Not so much doing on the wood stacking front for me today or yesterday, although I have managed to do a little bit both days – the pile is slowly shrinking 🙂 🙂
7.45pm Sunday 31 March: Yep, definitely smaller!
There was a short skiff of rain this afternoon, and they are promising showers tomorrow morning, but I’m not worried about what’s left out in the weather, I reckon I’ve got enough under cover now to last for at least a few months. Must admit it does give me a sense of security and satisfaction that no matter how cold the house gets, at least I have plenty of wood to get a good fire going! (Cave woman instincts coming to the fore, do you think? 😉 )
Shot into town yesterday morning to pick up a new light bulb for my sewing machine (at last!), which has meant I’ve been able to do a little bit of sewing this evening – working on some mug rugs at the moment, which are fun to use up some of my hundreds of little scrap pieces of material, although I’m finding doing the bindings on such small finished objects (they only measure about 6″ x 3″ or 15 x 7.5cms) very fiddly: wish there was an easier way to finish off the edges on them, I was getting very crabby trying to do them this evening! (Photos will follow in due course 🙂 )
While I was in town yesterday I stopped at the little park on Hansons Lane, which has some lovely big trees changing colour at present – here are a few shots I took:
Not sure what that white flower is, but it’s quite delicate-looking and pretty. The wind was a bit gusty, so it was a little tricky to get the focus right at times.
And some more shots taken at home during the day …
That last one of the nasturtium was taken in quite low light at about 5.15pm so I upped the ISO setting, which has given it quite a grainy look, which I think I quite like …
Anyway, the witching hour has come and just gone, so time to pack up for the day: hope you’re all getting in some good R&R over the Easter weekend!
