This week has been the "Ekka". For those not in the know this is the Royal National Agricultural show in Brisbane. I went for six whole uninterrupted hours. Pip and I enjoyed some excerpts from the Nutcracker. It was a great effort as the performers had no props or scenery and I was enthralled. We also saw the usual animal displays, fruit and vegetable displays, avoided the rides but some how was snowballed by a very poor shot. I never expected that in my home city. I was able to look at the needle crafts. I would have loved more time there as there was some knitting that must have been done on 1mm needles and it looked exquisite. How I wish I had pictures to gloat over.
I have also had one meal cooked by more eldest daughter and it was yum. Such a treat to not cook.
Dad has kept me busy. Miss Bethany has written a blog post about her impressions of life with Alzheimer's. You can read it here....http://bethanywarnesjones.wordpress.com
I keep filling my coin pot and hoping that it will be put to use for a trip to England in the new year. With this thought in mind this subtropical person had better finish her socks! Hand craft has taken a back seat to reading this week. Kitten snuggling and adoration has filled my days too.
Take care and God bless you.
