It's been a busy week, a mix of doctors, decisions and housework. Hanno is still unwell and now we're waiting to hear about another appointment with another specialist. I don't want to go into it here and please don't email or message me about it, when we have a solid diagnosis, I'll let you know.
This rose is called The Fairy. It's an old miniature rose that grows well in a pot or in the ground.
The thing that lifted my spirits during the week was rain. We had 200mm/7.8 inches of rain in three days and another 40mm/1.5 inches last night. I always feel safe and secure when it rains and just the thought of rain soaking into the garden out the back makes me smile.
I cleaned my utensils bucket out and "edited" a number of items. Amazingly, I use everything in the bucket now.
Meals during the week included pork chops, red cabbage and potatoes, ham salad and the day we went for Hanno's MRI in Caloundra, we came home with fish and chips. I made biscuits and a tropical cheesecake for morning teas and desserts and some lemon cordial.
The rest of my time has been spent cleaning, doing the washing and clipping Gracie. I hope to wash her in the coming days. I'm also starting to organise my summer sewing which I hope to start next week.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. I hope you enjoy this special day. And to everyone, slow down, sit and think and glide into the holiday season. I send love across the miles. xx
