how australia calls me, part two


#2: My sister is my best friend. We love to do the same kind of things, eat the same kind of foods. We work great as a team. Yesterday we walked the dog at dawn, then spent a few hours on yard work and cleanup in preparation for this weekend’s big shindig. This was followed by a visit to a wonderful exhibit at the National Library, and a lovely salad lunch.

A failed attempt to find replacement deck chair seats for sale had us back home in the sewing room a few hours later, selecting fabric to make our own. (Nice use of Anna Maria Horner’s Volumes design, don’t you think?). I cut and pressed, she sewed. We were tickled pink with the results.

Then we made a Lentil Veggie Cottage Pie for dinner and we drank wine while watching Dr Who. I don’t know how that sounds to you, but it was pretty much a perfect day for us.

If I lived here, I could see Nettie a whole lot more.

    ‘Handwritten’ was wonderful – I was most moved by seeing Mozart’s score and Beethoven ‘conversation book’. What will we leave from our computer age?
