A beautiful sunny day marks the end of autumn here. Our multi-purpose outdoor table is just the spot for warming up while one reads, eats or joins in with miscellaneous art and craft activities.
We celebrated my mother-in-love's 80th birthday this earlier week. She enjoyed a few days in her old bayside home (she has recently moved into an aged care centre in our town). One of the gifts we gave her was an copy of the Australian Women's Weekly magazine 80th Birthday souvenir edition. She had a wonderful time flipping through and reminiscing over so many events.
Miss O is enjoying sharing photos of her cooking and other happenings on her brand new blog. I love seeing each one develop their own interests, try new things and have a platform for sharing. Four of our older children already have blogs but only one of these continues to add posts.
Our weekend will include several games of hockey (I rarely stay to watch), music for Sunday's church service (three eldest daughters), mil joining us for Sunday lunch, a girls' rep. cricket training session, Master J heading off with fellow students to explore a nearby Uni, food shopping, washing, cooking, sewing and a little gardening. Hopefully we will also see some improvement in my husband's eczema as he begins an adjusted regime of cortisone creams, lotions and moisturisers and yet another course of high dosage oral cortisone.
