HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY NEW MOON!
The moon turns new on 6 October, next Wednesday.I hope everyone has a good autumn week. The trees are just beginning to turn a bit yellow here. No strong colors yet.
Diane: Thank you! I got busy finally cleaning 'my' room, which required moving furniture, etc. and ended up sorting through books that I can donate to the library.
Rosy: I hope all your business involves good thing!
Thank you DIANE. Here, the leafy greens are appearing on the bare limbs, blossoms are, well, blooming.
Dau & Co called in after lunch for Miss10 to collect her birthday “loot”. She had already chosen the 500-piece Mineralogy jigsaw from the book-week catalogue. I added a fat fiction book and an A to Z of mineralogy. The latter was devoured immediately. I am amazed how much she knows already as she explained & elaborated on the minerals & gems depicted. I hope she continues; we need scientists.
As the forecast today was “rain clearing”, I queried Dau whether they would still visit beach and she said the family had discussed it and MissL declared with a deadpan face that there would be more water in the water. They left us mid-pm for the beach – it was windy. Brr. However they were well layered with warm clothes. No swimming, just sand play.
DownUnder changed last night to daylight saving. In some states, we lose an hour, others stay usual time, so we have 5 not 3 time zones for summer. Pity the interstate airlines, etc with their timetables!
I went to bed last night and lost an hour while I slept. If only losing weight were so easy.
The hour I lost today was the hour I was planning on going to the gym.
Does changing my clock mean I can now have chocolate for breakfast and wine for lunch?
