I remember the Disney film Sleeping Beauty where Aurora is surrounded by fluttering birds, as are most Disney Princesses, and if only my camera was able to capture the action you would see Gilly surrounded by fluttering butterflies, the brown and yellow sort. She wasn't sure whether to play with them or eat them: potential friend or snack.
After a long, cool Summer, the heat has arrived. It was 27*C yesterday and 30*C today. I just smelled the scent of rain and we had a short cooling shower, I love that smell. It is still 30*C inside the house. I made some Layered Garden Salad today. It has to sit in the fridge overnight before it's ready. I made enough for four days, or three days and one for MrsDrWho?? She won't read this as she is still in the throes of new kitten-dom.
The Harry Feet sock continues along, I'm almost at the heel, so it is not very exciting to look at. It is almost too hot to knit, but if I just knit slowly and surely, it distracts my mind from the heat.
Yesterday I sewed another shirred dress. I may even make another one since it has to be posted to Singapore. I'll have to find out the different categories and limits and then weigh the dress.
Today I was able to buy some of the rare plastic thingies that go in the curved curtain rail over the front bay window. Some of the centre ones had broken. The kind lady showed me how they click in and so I didn't have to put them in the ends and then slowly move the curtain over one hook at a time. I feel I have achieved quite a lot every time I see the curtains closing properly!!!
