It was only after I had ironed the third top that still had dirty marks on it, and picked up a spotty fourth, that I realised I had done a whole load of washing with no washing powder. At all.
I should ask Lorelai Gilmore to do my washing, she has the whole water in a tub thing down pat. Not so sure about trying to pick the tub up while you are standing in it, and I hate the sound of teeth on plastic!!! Puppy Power!!!
Harki and Peri had a lovely walk today. We are walking a bit later because I can actually sleep longer in the cooler weather. Harki had a little run (5 metres down the hill) and was ever so pleased with herself. She was smiling when she caught up with me. Peri runs as fast as a train with no brakes and I often have to jump aside at the last moment. I love her Wheeee!! leap.
A while back I found a potential husband, but in honour of St Valentine's Day (well not really, it just ties in nicely) I have found him a much more appropriate wife:
I have made a start on my OPAM projects for February. I am about half way through the Noah's Ark and I have taken a picture of Otto's old cushion. First Vundy, then Tori, then Peri and finally Lorelai Gilmore wrecked the cushion. Gilly loves to curl up in the great indentation dug over the years. I have the fabric, thread, piping cord and zip too. Notice Harki's name is not on the list?? That's because she is The Best Labrador ever and would not even entertain the thought of digging a hole in a cushion.
I went to Mr and MrsValley's last week. It was inordinately hot, but I had a lovely time and I met lots of native animals and birds and I even fed one of the wallabies some bread. They are not tame, they are just not afraid. Their hectare-age is beautiful bush, complete with a dam, native ducks and hens, parrots, wallabies, paddy-melons and an echidna. Oh and some ravens. And it is just ten or so minutes from the centre of town and you would never know. Mr and MrsValley live in their own little paradise!!
The rain had come and gone, and it is cooler, but hotter temperatures are forecast for this week. Today I plan to do some tidying up in the loungeroom, finish The Ark, press it and apply some Heat'n'Bond to the back and then definitely a nap. It's already the afternoon and all we have done is go for walks and have breakfast.
