A much busier week for me.

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....

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.

Don't you have show at all? One day I may visit Sydney to see their show.
