doona day

had a doona day today...we get two a year at work and i woke up feeling like today was one of those days! it drizzled all day and was quite fresh despite the 26 and fine forecast.

i rode my bike and dropped off some stuff at the op shop up the road (thanks to I Op Therefore I Am for letting me know the opening hours!) I came upon a whole box of Golden Hands craft books and various crochet pattern books. i sat on this chair in the opshop for about an hour flicking through with giddiness. all for 10c each! and then i bought two of the most beautiful, large cacti that are about to burst into flower and are as big as my head for $2!!!

it surely is the simple things....

(i will have to consult my secondhand copy of 'what flower is that' by stirling macaboy to determine what cacti they are exactly)

also (sorry, am a bit of a chatterbox tonight) we ate our first bowl of christmas cherries. yum.
