A nice quiet Tuesday

Just sitting having a cup of tea - yep another old love has returned. I have just about given up coffee and now it is a cup of tea beside me as I type, sew, scrap, paint etc. Gotta leave the tea bag in though - I like it nice and strong! Better still is a pot freshly made - but I would rather have someone to share that with than have it on my own.

I have done 2 loads of washing, washed and cleaned up the kitchen, checked emails and blogs, met the new neighbours and now I am being calm before I head off to the doctor's for the check up. Think I might mention that I have been sick for over a week and I have a funny cough. It feels a lot like Asthma - which I haven't had since I came down to South Australia. Hope it isn't?

I worked on my canvas for the Cancer Council Pink Ribbon Day Exhibition last night. I am liking it so far.... The idea was that the CC sent you a canvas which you completed how ever you wanted and then they come and collect it and display it in the Adelaide Arcade in Adelaide on October 8. Then it is sold off to raise funds for the Cancer Council. Three other wonderful artistic ladies - Susy, Sandie and Christina are giving it a go too. How is it going ladies??? Remember you have to have them over to my place by Thursday!!

Spending some time organising the school reunion. I can't believe it was 30 years ago that we were all 15 and so excited about finishing Year 10 and heading off into the future. Some of us went into the workforce. Goodness that would be Gregory in another year!!! A lot of us went away to different boarding schools to do Year 11 and 12. Some of us went onto Uni or further studies. I can't wait to hear what some of them have been doing for the last 30 years?? One lady has a 3 year old child, another has a grandchild the same age, a couple never married, a couple never had children, a couple have died. Wow! i really can't wait!!!

Ok gotta go - will be on time for doctor but will probably have to wait awhile though!!

A quote for today:
I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see and pursuing that vision. Lewis Grizzard.
