The clouds are low in the valley with a fine mist falling, there,s a chill
in the air that takes away the memories of the heat from the
week end.
A perfect day.
I love this weather, maybe it is because they are so few and far between these days. There,s some thing that says cooking and reading,
about this type of weather.

I hope you all had a great week end. It was so very hot here, Saturday was spent in the
cool of the sewing room. Being made from besser blocks it is very cool in there.
Saturday evening we had a 21st on.
It was a great evening, though it was late... My friend catered for all of the party on her own, (there were 100 plus) and did such a wonderful job. I had it easy all I had to do was set the tables........ Bronywn hired two girls from her daughters hospitality class and they did all the serving and most of the washing up afterwards.
I have to say that it was one of Bronwyns better ideas, as she was able to enjoy the evening.

Sunday was hot and sticky as well.
Went back down to Bronwyns in the morning, it was hard to leave as she has air con.
We sat around drinking coffee and catching up.

Chloe had a good time at Roma with her sister. Will have some photos later in the week
for you. So we all had a big week end around here.

The photos are of the different day Lilie's I have in the garden, that I said last week I would show you. Bit late, though.
This is the first year I have had alot of them in.
The double yellow below is an old one. Also the dark red one.
As they mostly have come from the markets I don't have the names of any of them.
I find day lillies are very drought tolerant, I never water them at all!
Once they start to grow they divide well and flower within 12 mths.

I have a busy day ahead of me today.
I have been up early and got the floors vacuumed and moped. Beds are made and washing done.
I have to be at my Mother in-laws by 9;30 this morning as we are getting screen doors put on her house so she can leave the doors open.
Then I will be picking the children up from school as we have to go Birthday shopping for
Tuesday I am going out to Cooyar as that is were my parents live and I am off to spend the day with them. They have just got back from a Sydney trip. So there will be lots to talk about.
Welcome to my new readers.......and thank you for all the wonderful
comments that you leave, I so enjoy them and reading all your wonderful blogs.
