I have had another order of Floss Bunnies from my friend Shar and as it is now Autumn, I thought some scarves would be appropriate. I have a rough pattern for them in my head but I like making each one slightly different, it keeps me sane.
Archie has had a wonderful week. He had his first flute lesson yesterday and has come home filled up with light. Here he is learning some chords from the Internet. What an age we live in.
I am blown away by how beautiful the flute is to look at, let alone to listen too. I have to say the hearing someone learning the flute is a radically different experience to hearing someone play the violin for the first time. Every sound that comes out of the instrument is lovely.... thank goodness.
Archie has his birthday party tomorrow - a small handful of friends down at the swamp for a spare rib barbecue. Apparently that's the way you roll when you turn nine. Aside from that, Archie has a big weekend of homework ahead of him. He has a major project due in the following week and he has begun to prepare by soaking paper in tea. The edges will be burnt in the morning for extra authenticity. I like stuff like that and fortunately, so does Archie.
Thank you so much for all of your comments on the new pink kitchen - they made me very happy! Many of you have asked for the paint details but I will do that post in a couple of weeks - it is a colour that I developed with the most amazing colour consultant at Resenes in Tauranga - it is available on their data base but it had a bit of tweaking and we need to change the makeup for it on their program.
Anyway, an early night for me before tomorrow!!
Lots of love,
