Wouldn’t it be great if I could get on with the new iPhoto? All my latest photos are too big to post, and I can’t remember my password. My sons think mum is losing it.
I have just ordered a load of paperwhites to use as seasonal decorations, along with candles and evergreens, and that is it – well, maybe some shiny gold or silver branches. I so admire Delores for her infectious enthusiasm for creating beautiful corners. Delores really loves tartan (I can’t bring myself to say plaid, a plaid is a garment, tartan is the pattern) and I am slowly warming to them, and hey, I have some of my own! This is one of the Rose tartans
- one of the more subtle, old ones, and through my mother I can use the Bell tartans,
The last one is pretty wild.
This morning saw the last of the summer tomatoes – we ate them with ceremony. There are still green ones hanging but they will never ripen, and I don’t feel chutney coming on any time soon. I will make scones today, and maybe light the fire just for show, and sit pensively staring at the ducks and coots which have taken refuge in our inlet, on a rain-swollen high tide. Or I could get back to work…
