growing quilt

… I’m in awe of my mum’s beautiful quilt

white way of delight

… I’m so happy (relieved) that we’re moving into spring – my arms are bare and my own white way of delight has sprung ’round the corner

thicket of carrots

… I’m thrilled to pieces with my first thicket of carrots – shall have to look up when they’re ready to harvest


… I’m a little bit pleased with how my wood and water colour experiments are progressing


… I’m hoping this isn’t the only sunflower that will grow in front of my bedroom window  – given I planted the whole packet of seeds


… I just love the camellias that are smothering every garden in our neighbourhood


… I’m sipping the berry, banana and yoghurt smoothie Abby made me  – just the fuel I need for a few more hours of research and mind mapping

… I’m listening to Vashti Bunyan’s whimsical magic and am so pleased that I found her via the equally magical Phoebe Wahl – make sure you scroll down to the fairy mobile so that you can watch the little video – it’s enchanting.

Half way through ten intensive weeks of classes, workshops and pracs.  Who’d have thought Complex Care would be so .. well .. complex!  I find out on Monday where and when my next placement is – two weeks in community nursing, two weeks in high dependency acute care.

I’m so looking forward to summer.

on wednesday afternoon …

    I love your mum’s quilt! It reminds me of a jigsaw, in regimental colours :) I also love your own White Way of Delight. I might be mildly envious :) I still have my childhood Anne books and reread them whenever I am feeling stressed. It transports me to a different time and place, both in my own timeline as well as Anne’s. Very relaxing.

    What an amazing quilt! :) I loved seeing your relaxing photos. We are moving into fall now, but I kind of wish we could do summer again. hee! We’re harvesting all of our food now…next up on the agenda for the weekend is tomatoes. And, like you, we’ve been sipping smoothies, too. :) Always a good thing!

    What a GORGEOUS quilt! I always love when the seasons change, Fall is just around the corner up here =). Your carrot tops look so happy, I’m sure they’ll make for some delicious carrots. My carrots this year didn’t produce roots which was very odd, but of course I will try again next spring. It’s always a pleasure reading your writings.
