Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

This week I have hardly been home and each day has had its up.

At the beginning of the week I went up north to take part in a digital stories workshop and brushed up on programs such as imovie. It was a fun couple of days.

Mid week I got up early to volunteer.

Yesterday I got up even earlier and went to the cenotaph for the ANZAC Dawn Service. The moon was still up and made a beautiful start to the day.

Then last night while walking the dog I looked up to see the moon again shining bright up in the sky. It made me happy.


I went inside and made some ANZAC biscuits. This is a first for me. I have never made them before and as I put them on the plate I realised this week officially marks a turning point. I can apply for citizenship.


I made a cup of tea and as I sat down to nibble on my first ANZAC biscuit they reflected up onto my mug of tea.


Its been an up kind of week.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

The temperature is starting to change here. Linus gets up in the mornings with stiff legs and hobbles around quite a bit. He is beginning to feel the change for the worse in his arthritic knees and has been longing for some warm clothing.

I made this light jacket for him yesterday. It isn’t perfect but not bad for my first dog jacket project. I made it out of an old pair of track pants. I will make him a heavier jacket soon.

I am also making him leggings. Using the pockets from the track pants and possibly an old pair of wooly socks might work. At the moment I am trying to sort out how to keep them on and yet give him plenty of movement while keeping his knees warm. He definitely doesn’t mind me trying to put them on to check out the fit. I’ll take that as a sign he likes what Mum is making for him.
