Then by 3.40p.m. it was time to pack up and get changed and head to my paid job at Corangamarah. This is what stage I was up to by that time.

This is my back garden. You probably can't really see, but last Thursday morning, it was raining and the garden was getting a good soaking. It just looked so happy and lovely.
Well, the cat has been at it again. How is this, relaxing on the stereo and enjoying the view outside at the same time. I just never know where I am going to find him next.
We received these beautiful flowers during the week, and so I poped them on top of the stereo

What a week it has been with all the floods. Who whould believe that on the East side of Australia there would be water lying in peoples homes, from the top to the bottom of this great country. Especially, after the years of drought that we have had to cope with.
On Friday evening, I went out for a short walk and could not believe, that after days of rain here, there was dust following a car up our dirt road. How quickly the surface dries out.
I have been taking photos still, but just haven't got to upload them. We had some family sadness last Sunday night, and so life has just been a little busy this week, but with a bit of luck we will start to get back on track this week. And, tomorrow, I will try and upload my photos. One of them is of our cat in his latest sleeping hole. Why do they find some unusual places to sleep.
I have also been trying to be 'KIND TO MYSELF' this week, but it has been a little difficult, but I have tried and reminded myself from time to time. This week will be another start, or should I say a pick up where we left off.
See you soon, Marion.

Yes, just for the sake of it, some more sunset photos. On Saturday night I was driving home from work, and I had picked my daughter up from a party, and this is the beautiful skyline we were driving into. Eleanor actually took this photo for me. Isn't it magic.
This, this was later in the night. One bright orange sunset. What is it about sunsets?
Oh, and by the way, I am still hand quilting, and I have been given a reprieve on the timeline, which is so wonderful, as we have had a little stress in our family lives over the past couple of days. Thanks Danielle for being so understanding.

Well, finally today I got to my quilting, so as you can probably guess there was not much else got done. I did have a little friend Tara join me for the day whilst I was quilting, so that was nice. She was finishing off a shaggy quilt. I will tell you more on that later. I am not off to get some meat onto the BBQ for tea and a salad made. See you tomorrow.

So, that was the end of my quilting day, but never mind, I will get to it tomorrow and work twice as hard. Then back to it on Friday and some over the weekend and hey presto, hopefully it will be done.

The other thing I did today, was I managed to put two years worth of photos off my camera onto CDs. My cousin Rhonda will be so proud of me for doing this. It didn't take all that long, but it was just another job that I had to get around to doing. Well, now it is done.
Well, today I have managed to take another photo, and this is our Border Collie Kelpie cross called Kevin and his Mum, Lucky, is in the background. See, random photo every day

Then I got the cleaning bug and made a start in cleaning our back verandah. After all of that and a bite for lunch I went into Colac and fed a friends poodles and watered some of their garden, then went and had a lovely coffee with my dear friend Heather, who is part of our family. I always say that she is my sister that I don't have here. I have two sisters, one lives in Port Macquarie and the other lives in Wagga Wagga, so Heather is my adopted sister who lives here. Then it was off to work at Corangamarah.
Well, if I am going to stick to what I say, and that is "BE KIND TO MYSELF", I think it is time to head off to bed. Goodnight all.
