Everywhere I go,
just now... I see magnolias.
belles of the ball,
full skirted, giddy with life.
And there's not a leaf to be seen.
mossy, muddy, sodden paths & lawns abound.
Other days we have bright ideas like: replacing the terribly old rowdy fridge out in the larder with a handsome, local Trade Me find.
Just doesn't fit through the door into the larder (aka the shed out the back).
And it is somewhat bigger than expected.
We have a fresh new plan...hopefully to redeem our oversights.
I'll let you know. Meantime, can I count on you to shout loudly should we make murmurings about rather liking the look of that old fridge...over there or anywhere!
It's a remarkable little seed. It contains miles more omega 3 than salmon, weight for weight. People run marathons on the stuff. We have decided that it might just be the best possible back-up plan for emergency rations (you know, be prepared & all that). Honestly, who really wants to eat cold baked beans out of a can for a week?! This newly invented version of chia pudding could even be prepared with ease on a Lucy adventure.
It's even better the next day.
And made a new cushion for Lucy.
Happening upon things is just that, a random delight.
There are three different stories with in the same book. The last one is about Sophie wanting a pet & so her sister gives her a seed to plant & grow.
then one morning she awakes to find..
a little plant
Isn't it sweet?
I think I might start reading it...slowly.
Do you love Anne?
I am so enjoying Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries on Saturday nights.
I've never heard of the name Phryne before, have you?
"The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) is a thoroughly modern woman of the late 1920s operating in a mostly male world. The glamorous "lady detective" goes about her work with a pistol close at hand - and, more often than not, a male admirer even closer. To the dismay of Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page), Phryne's investigations take her through the back alleys, jazz clubs, and shady markets of Melbourne. Ignoring the dangers all around her, she seems to glide through life determined to enjoy every moment. But beneath her devil-may-care attitude, Phryne hides ghosts from the past that continue to haunt her."
she's intelligent, sassy & inventive & has a penchant for saving orphans & mis-treated servants.
The series is based on author Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher Murder Mystery novels.
I am so thrilled that you popped in to see me.
Remember not to let the peas touch!
See you soon.
