I'm an old fashioned girl at heart and I have to admit that I'm one of those who actually relishes being at home. It's unfortunate that 3 days one week and 4 days the alternate week I have to head out the door to "paid" work. Leaving home just after 7am and getting back around 5 pm after a 90km round trip there isn't a lot of the day left for getting much done those days. So, a day off can often be quite a busy day. Busy as it is, I still relish it as I get to take 5 every now and then to slow the pace and do other things ....... like today sitting in the lounge room doing some hand stitching looking out the window you could see a house boat that's tied up to a mooring down on the river (The Murray River for those wondering - it forms part of the

It was raining this morning and looked set in (which it was until about 3pm when it cleared up and the sun came back out). So I was able to sit this morning and reply to a couple of letters ...... the old fashioned snail mail. I knew I had to head into the local town and so my plan was to get them written so I could post them off while I was in there (which I did). So Lynda and Tracy ...... keep an eye out over the next week or two. These girls both have blogs as well so click on their names to go and have a look.

I guess in a way it doesn't really sound like I did that much at all today, and yet the day went so quickly ....... and here I am with dinner cooking and chooks just about ready to be locked up for the night! Luckily I got the bit of washing done that I had here today - decided that even though it was raining I would just pop it all on the clothes airers to slowly dry over the next couple days - but with the sun coming back out I took the airers outside and now all but a couple of things are dry and ready to be put away! The simple things, the everyday things ......
I'm itching to get my crochet hook out and start on some of that cotton ........ perhaps later tonight if I'm really lucky, otherwise it's going to have to wait till the weekend as I'm back to work again tomorrow! I hope you have had a productive "hump day" and the rest of your week brings a blessing to you and yours. I'll leave with a photo of this cute little cupcake I bought from work the other day when they were raising some funds. It reminded me of my "Beehive Cabin"
