Still no camera action, though we do have a work around now. Hooray! Pity it is so dark here that I can't get good shots anyway.
Yes it is dark even though it is daytime. Why is it dark?
Cos this Stuff keeps falling from the sky!
OK, so only about 14mm has fallen in the last day but everything is damp and icky. 19mm in the last week and it looks like there is more to come. The cats keep tracking in dirt - they run around under the house, which is dry, but have to go through wet bits to get back inside. Cheshire is a particularly good weather tracker. She appears inside whenever the weather is likely to be wet. She has been inside a LOT recently. Nutmeg is not a good weather tracker since she likes to sleep in a sunny window no matter the weather (and for that matter no matter the sun). Our rainwater tanks are nearly full again. The plants are looking very green and perky (except for the autumnal ones).
Yesterday Nathan and I rode our bikes up to his work. Thank heavens for me putting my brolly (umbrella) in his pannier because 15 minutes after we got there, the heavens opened and basically did not stop until late afternoon. I had to go into town (ie the City, ie Melbourne CBD) as I had a load of library books to return to the guild and a previously lost, now refound old passport to hand in. I didn't ride the bike home again - I just sat on the train all the way instead. Not sure why! Something to do with it being twilight at 4pm and icky damp?
Knitting - the baby wrap jacket is knitted and half sewn up. I am now doing miles of I-cord to finish it off. I started a new sock - I've had a bug about making these magknits rainy day socks since I saw them linked on someone's blog. I had one lonely skein of purple yarn I had dyed up. It is coming up so cushy! I wish I could show you pics of it and it would be even better if we had feel-o-vision but we don't.
I am also going through my 20 or so fleeces and working out which ones I can clean up quickly enough to take to the US with us. I have some lovely fleeces. I also spun up a whole icky fleece that I've now dyed and will make into a rug of some sort, most likely knitted. It is an icky fleece cos it is coarse.
