Yesterday I got out of bed and went out to the garden.
(Note Audrey II sitting on my table.
A lovely and thoughtful gift from my ladies for when I presented at
The Emerging Writers Festival back in May.)
I rocked my pj, bed socks and son's thongs combo look. I hear it's all the rage in Paris.
I grabbed my trusty Great Dane shaped walking stick.
And made my way over to the over to the bushes by the side fence.
I trimmed off some of the berries from the tree. Flowers are in short supply mid-Winter so you take your colour wherever you find it.
Made my way inside. Put my bounty on the kitchen bench. And went back to bed, just a wee bit exhausted.
This morning I got up and made my morning brew. I looked at the berries on the bench and decided that today I'd take the next step.
I grabbed some old bottles from my bottle/vase collection above the stove, and filled them with water.
I trimmed up the sprigs of berries.
And popped them in the bottles.
I grabbed my old green Depression glass sandwich dish. Part of a much loved collection.
And popped it all together on our dining table.
And I smiled.
This is really a random track that makes me smile. It's off the somewhat obscure and rather obviously named The Acoustic Alternative Album (2007) compilation album, which has many gems.
Remember to head on over here to donate to my Clicking My Heels For Dysautonomia, raising money for the Greg Page Fund for Orthostatic Intolerance and Dysautonomia research, at The Baker IDI. Thanks to the generosity of many we've already raised over $2,000, keep donating and hopefully we can reach $10,000.
