Two Uses Tuesday 97

Two Uses Tuesday Linky Party
Two Uses Tuesday is LIVE until Thursday at 10pm EST (2am  Friday UTC).

Tip of the week

Spend a few minutes, at least once a week, to just watch the good things in your life happen. Observe your loved ones and soak in the moment. Watch the steam dance off the surface of your favourite hot beverage. Take time to immerse yourself in the small things that make you feel good.

Rainbow Lorikeets

Rainbow Lorikeet Pair
I was so engrossed in designing a crochet edging yesterday I completely forgot to share my weekend photo. I hope it was worth the wait.

This gorgeous little parrot is a rainbow lorikeet. They are inquisitive and bold. Most tame birds that escape their aviary will perish in the wild, not these pioneering little rascals, they will happily set up camp and flourish. That is how they came to become Western Australian locals.

Sew...you want to start a sewing group?

Hot tea

This is my third cup of tea in as many hours. I hope I actually get to finish it before it goes cold, unlike the previous ones.

I thought it would be sew simple 

(bad pun intended)

It's been a busy week. I've been involved with creating a local sewing and craft group with a few other like minded people.

Thank you to everyone who wished Geri The Wonder Dog a fast recover. She was due to have her stitches out today, but she healed so fast she was able to have them out before the weekend and we got to go on a nice big walk.

Dove Nest

Laughing Turtle Dove

We have a Laughing Turtle Dove nesting in our yard this year. She has chosen an excellent spot with good cover. I say 'she' but this is most likely the male as they generally do the day shift.
