Ain't life grand?

I have really loved going to Fremantle every week for Uni

On my last day of the semester 
I was delighted to see some yarnbombing
I love yarnbombing
There is something wonderfully subversive about it.
Yarnbombing demands attention 
and pays homage to the sacred crafts of knitting and crochet. 
And while a little bit of my puritan heart tsk tsks 
at the impracticality of blankets for buildings
The rest of my spirit sings with this celebration 
of the womanly skills our grandmothers gave us.

The yarnbombing website is an inspiration for those of us
who nurture a rebel within.

It was an interesting day.
Seeing yarnbombing in the morning,
then my exams,
then home.... and seeing the first fire for the season.

This is what it looked like on the horizon in Midland

And from my driveway. 

It was definitely a wake up call for summer. 

Now is the perfect time to get to work on the property.

Not only has university finished for the year
my daughter has also finished her ballet exams,
and is in the process of doing her log book for her drivers license.
Here she is, on the left, in her last rehearsal before her exam.

I will miss driving my daughter to endless ballet classes;
it's been a wonderful time of talking and sharing. 
My new free time can be put to good use
 Mowing and raking and weeding. 
I'm actually looking forward to it.
Ain't life grand?
