One+Four=Life: Rain, More Rain, Japan, #the100dayproject
Rain Rain, how I love you. Apparently, South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent, and so by the end of summer we are all brown and dusty and crisp and dry, drier, driest! Just when the garden is about to give up it’s battle to flourish and the water bill is bursting it’s pipes, along sneaks in Autumn, with all her lovely coolness, colour and RAIN! Yay! We have been very spoiled with downpours here and the garden is breathing a sigh of relief and I am smiling big time. I even put the flannette sheets on today-luxury! This is what I was driving into on the way to buy olives on Friday.
2. More Rain
When I got there it was time to break open the umbrella and savour the sight.
This time next week I will have one more sleep left until my sister and I go on our grand adventure to Japan. I am so excited, a bit nervous-mostly because my sense of direction is completely crap! I was the one as a kid who always got called over the loud speaker system when shopping with mum, as I had a tendency to wander off! I still can’t get my head around the fact that Australia’s whole population is the same as Tokyo’s. It will be a bit different from the last holiday I took which was camping at Innes National Park, with a drop toilet, very few neighbours and the only sounds to hear were the crashing waves and birdsong! Stay tuned!
I have completed Day 20 of my #100daysofpostcards and have them all stuck on the wardrobe door in the study/craftroom. Experimenting and enjoying creating everyday has been wonderful during the school holidays. I have also been learning lots and am continually inspired by the 30 Days of Collage ecourse I am doing. Piles of papers, magazines, junk mail, glue and scissors, washi tape, paint-all good and very addictive!
It’s Day 21 today, so I’m off to create (she says without a backward glance at the still to be tackled school jobs piled up)! Back to school tomorrow-but only for a week:)
