Brr Brr Brr...its cold outside!

Winter has definately set in the last week or so
 Its been so so cold...Brr Brr
The sniffles and sore throats that we had for the 
last couple of weeks have gone for now..
 Thanks for the well wishes, your so sweet to write me and
wish me well.... not much sewing was done, but lots of movie watching.
As I looked out the window this afternoon 
all I saw was rain and wind, and it looked and felt cold cold cold.
A few weeks ago we were running through the leaves
in our Botanical Park and Gardens
 Tossing Fig and Maple leaves into the air
 It's so much fun!

 Best of all is climbing on these century old Moreton Bay Fig Tree trunks.
 They are so majestic...
 Stand so tall and have so many a story to tell I'm sure.
If only trees could talk hey....
Tonight after dinner of some yummy hot minestrone soup,
we are going to watch a movie(finding Nemo), eat popcorn 
and I am going to help the girls knit a scarf,
or should I say finish them off.....

Happy Stitching

Keep warm or cool wherever you may be, enjoying your night.

 Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs

That park does look fun Dawn! So glad you are all feeling better. Finding Nemo - I love that movie but parts of it scare the pants off me.

Stay warm and enjoy your movie night, sweetie!

Many movie nights happening here too Dawn :) Too cold to be outside and there isnt much sun to catch either. I love those trees and I remember climbing on some when I was a girl in Adelaide :) Have fun with the choccie bikkies and Finding Nemo...I so love Dorey? The blue fish hehehehe. Hugs Vicki xx

Ahh... One of our favourite autumn activities was "catching leaves" as they fall from the plane trees in the Botanical Gardens. It has been cold here in Melbourne too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

At least you have lovely memories of the visit to the park. My DD had family photos taken in the autumn lease. Just gorgeous.
The big figs are amazing.
Movie night with the girls and knitting sounds great.
Enjoy your weekend.

I was looking, and said "What?" when I saw the leaves. Then I remembered where you live and it all made sense! I think you should sit and knit and have a nice cup of something warm. Maybe a nice quilt on your lap, and loved ones all around you! Just sitting watching them will keep you warm!
