Itís an overcast steamy morning here today Ė might rain, might not. Itís that time of year for us here in Brisbane when you lightly ďglowĒ from the humidity. I can stand it most of the time, and Iím very grateful for the ceiling fans we have throughout the house. Donít like to use the aircond much Ė itís very expensive and really not great for the environment. I like to save it for the really horrible days that you just can manage without air!
Itís been a week of Christmas breakup parties and Iím all partied out. I organised two of the three I attended, and Iím exhausted. Lots of fun though and everyone joins in and has fun. We had a super duper party at Sunshine Linus - hereís the link if you want to see what we got up to: http://sunshinelinusgroup.blogspot.com.au/ .
OMG!! Iíve just realized I didnít post an article on the quilting site last week! Oooops! Iím supposed to write an article each week and send a newsletter out each week. Did the newsletter and completely forgot the article. I guess that just goes to show what a busy week itís been for me and my mind!! I donít usually miss the deadline, and this is the first time in six years that Iíve completely forgotten to put an article up! Must be getting old!
Over at the forum, Granny H has made a comment about the lotion that a reader posted recently. Iím going to give it a try too. Hereís the link for you: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/847732#Post847732
