Anzac Day

This morning saw Gemma, Lucas and I up early and down to Semaphore for the dawn service. It was a cold morning but no rain. Each year more and more people young and old are going to the dawn service which is a good thing.

Our sunrises and sunsets have been spectacular of late.

Yesterday wasn't a particularly sunny day but as I was heading home from the shops I noticed the pelicans feeding on the lake. I quickly unloaded the shopping and walked around the corner.
The seagulls and pelicans were having a feast.

They are amazing fishers notice the little fishes head poking out from his bill.

Then they were off across the lake to see if the other spot the gulls were gathering at had better fish.

Easter weekend

Present for Amy

I went to my first baby shower last weekend. I bound some muslin wraps and made some burp cloths.
Burp cloths for the intelligent baby who wants to read as it leaves a deposit on it's mums shoulder LOL.
I need to thank Quiltygal for her help with these I asked her ages ago about burp cloths and she said just draw a peanut, which I did.

Our weather for Easter has been wonderful the mornings have been spectacular.
