Public holiday Monday

Photo - Clivia taken at the Adelaide Botanical Gardens yesterday.

Today was labour day here in South Australia. I have had a very slow day. Mrs 24 and the grandson came over and spent some time this morning. I was in bed stitching (another one of my favourite places to stitch!) and Mrs 24 and her progeny sat on the couch in my bedroom and visited with me. I spent some time at the best garden shop in Adelaide (Garden Grove) with Miss 11 and Mr 7. I finished stitching my butterflies and turned one of them into a bag. And we went to a friend's house for a barbeque this evening. We took salads and dessert. (Hey Mrs 24! We made apple and custard danishes from here and strawberry jam and custard ones too!) All in all a pretty fun day. Tomorrow we are back to the holidays. Basketball training camp. Physiotherapy visits at the hospital. School shopping (new books, new socks). It doesn't sound like much, but I think that will pretty much take me all day!
