Ahhh Winter - you've done it again

Winter, in my opinion anyway, the best time of the year.  

What have I been up to?  Well I have .....  

Finished knitting a baby blanket for my niece's firstborn.  I was just finishing up some oddment colours that I had, wasn't sure of  baby boy or a girl when I started knitting. Turned out to be a boy.
We have been having (what seems like a continual) clean up around the house and yard.

We've had two separate garage sales - but only sold a little.

This photo taken the night before.  What is it with garage sales these days?  We had low prices, but people only seem to want to look.  We obviously don't have good junk!

So I have taken THREE car loads of goods (sorry forgot to take photos of evidence) to my local Animal Welfare charity store - at least they love meI enjoy knowing that someone else will benefit and there might be a few more happy op shoppers around!

...... and have listed some things on ebay - working on more this week.
I've been oiling furniture and changing around rooms (again).  This taken mid-turnaround!

Plus I've been generally enjoying life around our place here (especially since I'm at home more atm).

and of course - playing with these guys
What's not to to love about Winter in Queensland?!

( I have used a couple of these photos in earlier posts, but they seemed to fit in well with this one.)

cheers for now

What a lovely baby blanket! Garage sales are 'funny' things...sometimes people 'snap up' the bargains, other times there's little interest. The animals who will benefit from your items sold in the op shop will love you for ever! lol
