The smart phone is now a Hot Spot!!!

The wonderful man in  the Vodafone store this morning set up my  phone as a hot spot. Hooray, I now have internet at home, our temporary home. It is limited, with just a small amount of data, so my time and comments might be short, but sweet.

Thank you all SO much for your loving and thoughtful words.  Your comments have boosted me so much, we went from a freezing night to a heat wave, and in between, some gale winds. Tootled off to have morning tea with the new family in our previous home, what a delightful morning, and next time I hope to have a photo of Lady Raisin of Graestone, the tiniest loveliest little puppy of all. A miniature schnauzer, and she skipped round so happily.

Our new home is waiting, the Bernina is packed away. No photos here yet, but there are two little girl calves in the front paddock waiting  for their turn to pose.

Meantime, some more archive photos.

Here is the Midnight Mystery quilt, waiting for the Gammill long arm!!

Quotation of the day , ( I would add ,friends near and far) from Marcus Tullius  Cicero,

“ If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need”

Greetings from Jean.

So good to have you show us your new home! I see the double garage for Hugh!!! Where is your sewing room on the front or around the back? You have a clean palette for your garden Jean.

It is good that the new owners are so happy and also that Vodafone have set your phone up as a hot spot. It won't be long now till your final move. Time will fly.

it must be hard, being in transition. It's all very exciting, though.
We're slowly freezing up. So happy for you.

So good you have internet. You have to feel like you're back in civilization again. I can't wait to see what you can get accomplished in this beautiful new home. Safe travels, Carol

It sounds like your new home would be very much what my husband and I would choose. We actually need to up-size! (If only we could.) I completely agree with the quote of the day too. :-) I hope you get a pic or two of Lady Raisin! There's just about nothing cuter than a puppy. Just imagining Lady Raisin's antics makes me smile.
