Something fishy and a new project

Wow, how time flies!  I haven't done any blog reading all week. Hopefully on the weekend, I'll make a cuppa and catch up on what's been happening in the lives of my blog friends.

The town where we live is on the Murray River and this year, due to the abundance of rain the river has been high which has meant Yabbies are in abundance. This hasn't happened for many years. A friend dropped us of a box of cooked yabbies last week. We just had to peel and eat them!

I spent a few hours re-potting last weekend, pulling out the petunias and planting pansies. These pink thrifts are giving a cheery greeting by our back door.
Between our kitchen and the family room is a very 70's glass panel and glass sliding door which we never use. I have talked about getting rid of it many a time to open it out into a wide opening. Anyway it is now happening!!  Our second son Daniel started pulling all the frame out last night and will re-do the frames on the weekend. Here is just a teaser photo of Daniel starting the process.  Yay!!



Stay tuned!

We had the same amber glass in a house in Canberra in the eighties..I was so pleased to see it go. Well, guess what, when we moved into this one we noticed a little rectangle of woodgrain amber glass in one of the windows..aargh..fortunately we cover it with a desk or couch or something in the front room and it doesn't show!

Dearest Annette,

Hope your project is going well and that you all will be satisfied with what you accomplish doing so. There are those things that take forever to get finalized.

Lots of love,

Mariette
