my day... yesterday

the first day of spring rolled in quite cool, that was yesterday, even put a skivvy on, not so today, it's very warm here today.
yesterday i potted around, took a heap of lavender heads off the bush, excused myself to the bees, they didn't mind so much & went on their merry way over to the calendulas. i missed taking the lavender off last year this year i'm right on top of it & already have a few dried, might put it in soap later or make sweet scented pillows. 

lavender drying
also got in some more knitting on YDs collar, which i've since finished this morning as only had 20 rows of straight knitting to do, fingers all swelled up yesterday which made handling the needles awkward, glad it doesn't happen often.     
20 rows to go here, which is since been finished
there was a lovely sunset to finish the 1st day of spring off, though my phone camera didn't do it justice, the colours were spectacular.

1st day of spring sunset, my phone didn't capture it very well

today is sprinkler day for the front garden, i did a bit of grass chipping around the fig tree, discovered i have sprung a leak in a water pipe & texted the plumber. 

on the weekend my beautiful children came up to see me for my birthday & what a surprise my eldest had for me, along with my sister they had planned a holiday for me between them since May to go down to see my sister in Tasmania! what a treat! i was a total stunned mullet & it still hasn't fully sunk in, now i know why my sisters texts were a bit funny, or she would throw in a random text with nothing to do with what we were saying, she was biting her tongue! my eldest is coming too & she wants to explore quite a few places, that will all be happening in February. can't wait.

hope everyone has been enjoying their days

thanx for visiting
