Weekend reading

This WAS predicted by Hanno, MrHM and others 😉 - I'll be speaking at the Caboolture Library next Friday, 9 December at 12 noon. Bookings are necessary and can be made here - the talk is free. Please come along if you can, I'd love to meet you. This WILL be the last one. I agreed to this talk because the Caboolture Library is celebrating it's fifth birthday, they have wonderful people there and I wanted to be part of the celebrations. 🎈

Here is Gracie trying to work out what I was doing with the camera. She'd been playing with her favourite toy - a three metre piece of linen that we call her "ribbon". She runs all over the place dragging it and trying to entice someone to pull on the other end.  Naturally, there are two suckers here who are happy to oblige.

There are hundreds of small black mosquitoes here since the rain and we've got mosquito coils burning when we sit outside.  I did a bit of research and found this: Are mosquito oils making us sick?

Thank you for the beautiful and interesting comments you leave here during the week. Hanno and I enjoy reading them very much.

  6. Rhonda, I predict Caboolture library will be a sea of people next Friday. I do so wish I was just a short drive away. Gracie's ears are standing up perfectly now, darling wee thing!

  7. Toothpaste also removes marker--even Sharpie--from finished wood furniture. Applied very lightly and in the smallest amount necessary to achieve results, it did not even damage the finish.

  8. I imagine Hanno having that smile "I knew it... :))"
