Three Towers

The Disa Park towers at the top of my suburb are so ugly! And what a strange orange light there was, late this afternoon.

My spring cleaning project continues. Polishing furniture, washing ornaments, wiping out cupboards, sorting shelves etc. It's very tedious but I'm trying to do a little every day. I think it's going to take another two weeks to finish.

I heard American Authors' Best Day of My Life on the way to work this morning and I had it in my head all day long.

Boyes Drive

Went back out to False Bay for another morning of swimming today. Conditions were superb.

Shades of Grey

In hot weather, like we've been having this week, the fluffy grey and white one is almost always to be found lying - or lolling - in the hollow in my driveway, catching the breeze coming in under the gate. Trixie used to lie there too.

My little bookshelf is choc-a-block. Either I must get rid of some books or get more shelving.

Now flowering in my garden: abelia. So pretty!
