When all else fails ...... show a nice picture! These were taken on the drive from Albany to Perth on Tuesday three or so weeks ago. I was driving with my Melbourne mate, Sue, whose son, his partner and their dear little baby girl have moved to Albany from Perth for all that fresh air, gorgeous views and healthy living.The sky was heavy with rain, but the sunshine made the paddocks of canola (mustard) sing with colour. I've never seen so much canola in flower — it was breathtaking.
:: I don't have much to report, because when I haven't been quilting like buggery, I've been watching the amazing and theatrical events at the Democratic National Convention on the telly. It has been absolutely riveting. So many people having such a brilliant time — yee ha!
I've just heard that Susan Sarandon is there somewhere, of course. Waiting for her chance to posture. I'll just have to go back to the sewing machine when she gets going!
:: Will has started his year at Mira Costa College and so far so good — he likes all his tutors, and the classes have piqued his interest. He has yet to start sculpture, which is the one he's looking most forward to.
:: David and I are getting ready for another roadtrip, heading back up north to take in the coast of northern California, the redwoods, Mendocino, Portland in Oregon, Olympia where we'll pick up Lily and Nick, Seattle, Orcas Island in the San Juans (Nick's mum has a house there we're borrowing), and Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. It'll be beautiful at this time of the year — can't wait!
