It is a lovely sunny morning here in Canberra. Yes cold but what can you expect for our winter. My back yard is quite sheltered from the wind and a pleasant place to be. Yesterday Pete and I went to Bunnings which is a big hardware supermarket type shop because I had to buy a metal ruler as recommended by my pottery tutor. While I was there I couldn't resist having a look in the garden department, of course. I bought three little pots of color with Ranaculas in them. That is spelt wrong I know, but that's what it sounds like to me and I am too lazy to look it up. I also got a punnet of English daisies that said they had extra big flowers, a punnet of spring onions and a pot of common mint. I put them around the garden this morning. The mint went into a big pot that I made. It actually had mint in it before but I was sick of it being overcrowded and dumped it in the vege garden here. The soil in that bed actually looked really good when I started digging in it. So, maybe I am starting to feel less home sick for my Junee garden. Or, maybe it is just getting closer to spring. My favourite time of year. It looks like the bulbs I have been watching pop up in the garden for the last month or so here are Daffodils. A couple of them have buds on them now.There are hundreds of them. I wonder if Paula will get as much fun out of my old garden, when she moves in, watching the bulbs pop up and flower as I used to do each season. I planted most of them myself.
Michael and I have started cleaning the office we were to do in Kingston. My back is painful but I have decided that it is time to loose some weight and see if that will help me. Anyway this office is pretty cool. It is a graphic design and advertising place. Something that I saw that I like there is a white wall behind some desks with what looks like a shadow on it. On closer inspection it is a pale grey painting of a tropical setting. I looks great. It is just the right colour and angle that you would expect to see of a shadow cast from a silouette that is back lit.
On the tele and, most annoying, is non stop OLYMPICS. I don't mind watching some of it but really! Every moment of the day! My Mum sits there and loves it though. She makes comments and is totally confused by what is going on but will argue that she isn't. So that has given me the chance to retreat into the puter and read lots of other peoples blogs in the evening after work, when I would usually be relaxing in front of whatever show that was on which took me fancy at the moment.
O.K. it is time to get some lunch and think about getting ready for work.
