Weekend reading

We have a lot of flowers in the vegetable garden right now. They love the hot weather. Not only do they look beautiful and give us a harvest of flowers for the kitchen table, they bring in the beneficial bugs too.

I guess many readers are preparing for the holidays, it's a busy time of year. Australian schools stop for summer holidays soon and many people will be taking it easy until late January. Whatever you're doing, enjoy the change of seasons and the anticipation of all those hot days at the beach or cold days by the fire.

  1. Thanks for the quilt cleaning link! I have a quilt that I've been too scared to wash for fear of damaging it. I'll clean it with confidence now on our next sunny day!

    1. Not a problem, Jill. All my settings have gone to default since I had the computer repaired. It's all fixed now and the links open in their own window again. :- ) Thanks for letting me know.

  5. I love the link to Christmas in Australia. It was the year I was born and can't wait to show my kids how it was for us way back then. I'm sure Christmas wasn't as 'crazy' as it it now. Have a great weekend Rhonda!

  6. The Christmas in Australia video brought back many happy childhood memories. In 1958 I was 6 and my sister was 4 and Mum would take us to The Magic Cave in John Martins to sit on Father Christmas's lap and ask him for what we would like for Christmas. Sadly John Martin's is no longer in Adelaide but David Jones has a Magic Cave for todays youngsters.
