Yesterday was our federal election and I spent the day working at the Op Shop. The school was a polling place and the parents’ group ran a sausage sizzle as a fundraiser. Here is my sausage, with onion but no sauce.
The day was very pleasant, the shop did well, the sausages all sold out and there was a nice community atmosphere.
Unfortunately, the day went downhill once the polls closed and the Liberal government was returned for another three years. There is a lot more I’d like to say about that but I should probably wait till I’m less angry; maybe in about three years.
This is the last photo I took during a mini photo shoot in the garden yesterday. In between shots I’d had a game of ball with Cindy. She loves to play fetch but these days she can sometimes take a while to decide to drop the ball so there is not so much chasing and more dodging me until she is ready to give it up. Still, she is thirteen so I am glad she wants to play ball at all.
The other day I was outside taking some doll photos on the front porch and Polly decided to join me. As she is an inside cat she only comes out if I am there and I know that she won’t wander too far away. She did take the opportunity to get a little fresh air and of course a good stretch.
People who know me or read our doll blog will know that for the past week we’ve been celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Barbie. This iconic doll has been around for most of my life and all of Naomi’s although we didn’t meet her until she was already five or six years old.
Most of this weekend I’ve been busy dressing dolls and setting up displays to photograph which has been lots of fun even though it’s been very time-consuming Here’s one of the pictures I took.
