Look for a job.

Supervise Wyatt’s art lessons.

Collect a parcel from the post office.

In The Craft Basket…

Making covers for my boxes of cards I am intending to give as Easter gifts.

Looking Around My House…

I am unsettled. No particular reason, I have just been feeling out of sorts the past few days. It has been too hot for too long, the town I live in is remote and isolated, there are no opportunities to do anything. I guess I am just a bit fed up. I long to live back in Brisbane city, where I can access beaches, museums and art galleries; instead of being stuck in the desert. I am sure I will feel better once Autumn and Winter set in, I definitely do much better in colder weather lol!

From My Camera…


Bella and Wyatt playing bubbles.

My Simple Pleasure…

Reading, I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.

    Great quote! Those cookies look delicious. I’ve been watching Z-Nation on Netflix, it’s zombies and rather silly but I guess it could be scary, depending on your tolerance. I can’t really do scary but for whatever reason zombies don’t bother me. I was excited to see 5 seasons of it. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    you might like to come visit Colorado… not hot here right now!! lol
    I know that unsettled feeling. Is there something you really want to learn to do? Online course to take? We left the culture of Washington DC area for the High Desert of Colorado… missing the galleries there. Your quote is true, but the past is a loud insistent caller! We watched Broadchurch but not the latest season… sounded hard to see. That actress won an Oscar Sunday night here! LeeAnna at not afraid of color
