Dark and dreary Saturday

Melbourne winter, honestly, what happens? Who takes the light? I feel like someone puts are thick grey blanket right over the sky and blocks everything out.

Having said that, I cannot complain. I have had a lovely day. A dear friend of mine gave me a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle. I haven’t done a puzzle in many, many years but, as I always say, why not…why not try this and try that and well…try anything; so, today I cleared my table and spent a couple of delicious hours finding the ‘edges’. I was knee deep in mottled greens, tree branches ranging from black/grey to sun drenched gold, then beautiful nuances of muted blues, greens and purples. The excitement of finding a face peeping out from a tree or the red shoe that goes on the rotund gnome reminded me how lovely this pastime can be. This is the jigsaw.

I feel like I have been playing musical chairs. After a few jobs that were staring at me, washing, cooking etc. I picked up my knitting for awhile (knitting a pair of socks). I like the challenge of getting around that heel. After trying to knit socks I have great respect for mine when I put them on, they are quite unique little fellows.

After an outing to the local shop for coffee I am now playing on the computer, uploading photos to my supposerose.wordpress.com blog and having a chat here.

I don’t mind if that thick grey blanket stays over our sky tomorrow as I will enjoy much of the same.  Happiness to all and if you are under that blanket, hope you are having fun as well. Oh, I also am reading a book and that was happening as well. I am reading a crime novel at the moment which is something I don’t normally read but, as I said, why not! I am enjoying it so far. The author is Karin Slaughter…hee hee, gotta love that name for a crime writer. This one is called ‘broken’. Good suspense, only up to page 100 of 398 so I have a way to go to see ‘whodunit’.

I’ve been ill so not much has happened on my blog later, however, the last couple of weeks I’ve done 2 large paintings, so must be feeling better.
