The bushfires are still raging in the Adelaide Hills, now 38 homes destroyed. The fire service has another hard day ahead of them because of changing wind directions and impenetrable scrub and extremely high temperatures. Thankfully tomorrow cooler weather is predicted
If I walk over the hills out the back scrub I can see the glow of the fire many miles away, we are quite safe though.
To amuse myself today ( I am so bored with being cooped up hiding from the heat) I ventured out op shopping.
My younger sister was here over Christmas mentioned that she had taken a liking to pink/ rose coloured glassware and wished to start collecting. Bingo! I found some and will be gifting them to her for her Birthday in February. I can show you them because I had to get her approval before doling out dollars 6 glasses for $20 and 4 dimpled dessert glasses $25 - not cheap but not overly expensive either - and I have a present for her which she likes- Yeah!
I gave them a quick dress up and set the table and sent my sister this photo as well. I really love the dimpled dessert glasses. I think the long stemmed wine glasses are crystal based.
In between shopping I have been crocheting my neutral toned blanket- so far 126 squares completed, about half the size of my king sized bed. The tone of the blanket varies as I add new balls of wool in to the mix so some to the blanket has mustard and yellow tones and then moves to the pink and apricot notes, but its basis is neutral.
