Hints of Autumn are coming on the wind -
slightly crisp mornings, and fresh south-easterly breezes.
The skies are brilliant blue, but our trees remain green.
You have to search for the subtle signs of Autumn in Brisbane.
And make do with a fake arrangement of russet colours.
Here are a few pictures of the magnificent Fall season in Ottawa,
Canada where our daughter lives with her family:
My wardrobe is severely restricted right now, while recovering from my surgery.
Shift dresses are out, as is anything fitted while I still have a surgical drain from my wounds.
Today I decided another loose shirt would be useful.
Once again pulled out this fabric and pattern ..
Sadly, I discovered my arm is too stiff and sore to spread and cut out the fabric.
One handed is just too difficult.
I decided to throw a big sulk and eat a large piece of chocolate easter egg, while pouting!
This was entirely wasted because noone was here to see it...
My surgery was done on only a few days notice and I was pretty uninformed.
I had no idea that my arm was going to be affected,
and to some extent will have permanent issues.
It is so good to be alive, though!
Would have cut the shirt out ahead of time had I known.
I will find some handy girlfriend to cut it for me.
Flowers and cards are still popping in ...
aren't people just so kind and encouraging!
Mr Cardinal's office is moving and something was surplus to requirements:
Small white marble topped table has come to live with us.
I hope your week is a good one ..
