Re: ****Daily Wash Saturday 26 th January 2013***

So saddened to hear your news Geoff...no way to prepare for it and no way to avoid it in our lives. Hopefully your Mother's passing was peaceful and you know you have my deepest sympathies.

Here, Annie is napping in her chair in the living room...so I am trying to be quiet...the computer is "almost" quiet!

Geoff ((((())))) Glad you got there.

Red faced, I am

Nasty winds and rain here. Quite mesmerizing watching the whirling trees.

Edit ... Just lost power. It's going to be a long day.

iPad still charged

((Geoff and Eileen)) It's indeed a sad time and my thoughts are certainly with you... it's important that you were able to say goodbye to her and I hope it eases your grief a little.

((Annie)) for no more damage...

I hope your son, gets himself off to the DR!! Big hugs!!

Geoff I am glad you were there, both of you. You can rest easy now, knowing all is good.

(((Kate))) I am glad you made it..

Lynn, that cradle is absolutely gorgeous!! You don't have to have the gelatine in just tea or coffee. You can make it up in hot water, or hot juice in the winter. Sprinkle it on your breakfast cereal, or yoghurt and berries. There are a number of ways to get it into your system

Sylvia, thank you for the Australia Day wishes.

Char, Carolynn is plodding along. Did you use almond flour in your macaroons? I love almond flour in my baking, when I do it.

Darla, I am happy you are painting!


Hap, I am so sorry Annie has got the flu. Huge hugs, I hope she can shake it sooner than later.

In answer to your "have I used my easel yet?" question. Under present weather conditions, no.

Yes these two kittys' are in pretty good health. I am still hurting over the loss of Zoe, and I do wonder, if I had done something differently, she would still be with me too. She was the youngest, and I thought the healthiest. I didn't realise she has a hyperactive thyroid, until too late. I will never forgive myself. (no comments necessary)

Ankle. I have had an MRI and will see the specialist again on the 30th January.

Kay, yes, that is my camera tripod. It really is too light for photography, so I use it for painting. I have another one in the studio, a cheapie I picked up in a charity store, because one leg has a slight bend in it, that, if lighter than this one, will do better.

Fingers crossed for your audition.. You reminded me, I have had a request, from ABC to use my possum video's for a documentary of their. They will pay me, and I have to sign a release. Oh they will credit me as well. :-)

As for the muscle spasm, have you got a TENS machine? I love mine, have had it for years, and it is invaluable for relieving all sorts of nerve/muscular pain.

Your instructor should have been wearing a mask

Happy sewing Shirley.

The wind is fair howling now, the trees are bending, the rain is falling in every which way direction. The windows are rattling so loud. When a plane goes overhead, which is really rare for hear, they sound so loud mixed in with the wind. It is eerie. I am loving it, as long as there is no damage.

Isn't it. I have a lot of dead branches in my back yard. I must say, I am not at all game to look at the neighbours gum tree, next to the side of the master bedroom.

If you look at this link, you will see, Mount Nemo is taking a lashing right now..

You can also see, Annie is not that far from Brisbane CBD

I am between Brisbane and Manly..

(((Geoff)))

message from Anne on my iPad.
"Power is out and so wifi is out. I suspect it will be a few days before its back on. Weather here is officially vile. Some of the gusts have been horrifying. House will be ok. Glad we pruned the jacaranda last winter. Big flame tree out the back was blown over. It's taken probably three other trees with it. Long way from the house."

Guess we'll see her in a couple days.
