she has fallen and now she is awake

end of the week review

On my way home yesterday evening, a freight train passed us in the opposite direction. The fading sunlight reflected momentary rainbows as we passed and as the night rose. It was really lovely.

My herb garden is growing quite well. An early casualty in the thyme, then gifting the coriander to a workmate, only to receive garlic chives in return! Still no garlic but I have high hopes for next week. I’m planning on tomato as well.

To touch something real,. Will help your wounds heal – Whitley More Than Life. It seems to help, it must be said.


Watching one of my favourite patrons at work win something today. For everything else that went to shit for the day, that made me really happy.


Mofo and The Artist and their kiddo, The Lawyer, have been in the state and visiting. He’s a biggun, homebirthed, breastfed, all that crunchy stuff. And ADORABLE. We’ve been doing the rounds of various cafes and restaurants and are due for breakfast out tomorrow. Which is one of the many many things I miss about Melbourne (first and foremost is the people).


I’ve been taking time out on the patio with the garden, Bunbun and the ubiquitous blue clamshell. In the afternoons and evenings it is really nice.

    I love the dappled light over your (very green!) back yard. We have a blue clam shell on the front porch too, but are yet to acquire a fold-out foam sofa!

      We only just acquired the sofa and the clamshell. I think the sofa was mostly for Wolfman! He uses it all the time, lounging on the floor. It was good for her nap yesterday too, so she could stay downstairs in the cool.

      Everywhere is quite green up here! It rained for about 10 minutes an hour ago, now it’s beautiful sunshine, so everything is growing madly. It makes for lovely scenery.

      (also, the white glare obscures the fact we’re living on a busy intersection! It looks much more peaceful than it really is.)
