A gift from the universe

G'day all!

A couple of weeks ago at Gardening Australia Live, I saw many people wandering around with a "green bag" that wasn't green - it was sky blue, lime and hot pink.

I wanted one of those bags so badly. I wanted so much! I LUSTED after a non-woven polypropolene bag. I even got Nathan to ask a random stranger where they came from.

I didn't get one. I missed out. They had run out of them by the time I found out where they came from.

I whinged. I moaned. I sniffled. I wanted one of those bags. I couldn't get one. I was heart broken (but not for days).

At lunchtime today, I just so happened to walk past the City Square.

Guess what they were giving away there?

Tomato seedlings and some gardening samples in LIME, HOT PINK and SKY BLUE bags!

The bag of my dreams!

Of course I now have one :-)

Stuff all those other wants and "needs" - my life is now complete because I have me a nongreen green bag :-)

Well my life is complete for the time being anyway. I can't keep the smirk off my face. See?


OK, that is a manic grin. Such simple pleasures. I have to take them because you never know what tomorrow will bring, and I don't get to go to Rhinebeck.

Here's the Bag checking out a view of the Yarra with the MCG in the distance:


And it agreed to hold my current multidirectional zigzag scarf, knitted in Patonyle sock yarn:


This has been a very interesting week. I've managed to drag myself through it in one piece whilst experiencing simple moments of bliss. I love Spring! The new green leaves, the sunny skies (which may not last for more than 10 minutes at a time), the sensation of change and hope.

anon!

  1. Well yay for the bag, it is a very bright and shiny and happy bag :-)

    I like the scarf too, I want to do something similar with some Adriafil, or maybe Noro Kureyon, that I have.

  2. Ok I want one too. I use them every day for either toating around my knitting, my library books and my Avon books, etc. But mine are either blue, green and black boring or what!

    Have fun with it.
