The wind started gently blowing today. It blew softly through these (pink) Port St. Johns creeper and the (yellow) Helichrysum umbraculigerum….Say that three times fast! The weather forecast predicts a strong South-easterly all weekend and 35 deg Celsius on Saturday!
Yesterday the fabric shop was pretty torturous – trying to imagine those reams of material covering a couch with scatter cushions to ‘bring out the hue’ was fun. Especially when Kingoftheplayground delightedly found a heap of cushion stuffing and started trampolining off it into the middle of the shop. I chose an Ochre Bull Denim. Sounds like a baseball team.
We drove back through the crazy, hot, hustle and bustle of town traffic and into the peace of the Deep South. Kingoftheplayground- quietened with a bag of nuts – finally stopped his incessant “What should I dooooo” question. I suddenly realized that this question was not entirely unrelated to my husbands – Taskmaster – constant slaving. Er, I mean working like a soldier/robot/bee. A conclusional maths equation then popped into my head:
Hard labour + male(2) = No food in kitchen. Ever.
The future looked hungry. Really though, if you want a job well done and amazingly fast, just ask the landscaping team here to do it. Think energizer bunny with tools.
Note to self: Must plant more veggies!
