Cricket Fever

Autumn is fast approaching and it is almost dark now in the morning, when the alarm clock goes off.
Coats and sweaters and the extra bedding will have to come out, as the season is soon upon us.

Blogging has taken a back seat lately as I have been making the most of the fine days we have had here. Staining outdoor steps and the wooden deck rails, doing some gardening and I hope to get over to see you all soon.

Cricket fever has the Nation in its grip - the excitement has just gone up a notch for us, as on Sunday is the final game for the Cricket World Cup - the Australian team verses the New Zealand  Black Caps ... It will be a nail biting time ~ may the best team win.

A beautiful weekend to you


  1. Good morning beautiful Carolyn! Autumn is coming to you, spring to us, and we are happy. It was one long and cold winter, and though it snowed a few days ago, it did not "stick" and warmer days are ahead. Enjoy your new season my friend! Anita

  2. Dear Carolyn,
    Enjoy your days outside while you can... It is spring here at home, but feels like the middle of summer...
    Take care dear friend.
