Ella Fitzgerald - What a Day This Has been
from Brigadoon by Lerner and Lowe.
Good Evening from Adelaide - a little chilly now after a crisp day with some cloud and some blue sky.
I had such plans for today - the whole day was mine and I intended to go through my Christmas Journal and get "in the mood" and organized - Oh yes "The Best laid plans of mice and men...."
I thought I had a quiet at home sort of day with nothing special planned and that's how it started. I decided to check out my sequins and beads - and dropped a whole container of sequins which were all colour coded - well that fixed that. I had no idea how long it was going to take to sort them but I knew it would not be quick.
Phone call saved me and I went out to the beach for lunch - and for a walk at Henley Beach - on the Jetty - just the two of us on the jetty and a very cold wind.
Some photographs for you:

We had fish and chips for lunch and found the only table in the sun - but it was quite cold and one of those free flying Seagulls left a message on my shoulder - yuk.
We took a drive around the suburbs where memories live and found such great changes since our younger days. We mentioned that this one lived here and this one lived there - it was great to spend some time thinking of old friends.
Home again where I have spent the rest of the day sorting these sequins into colour groups and they are sealed this time - next time I will vacuum them up and just give up.
It has been a good day - quiet and pensive and as I sorted sequins this afternoon I watched the final two episodes of "The West Wing" - I have enjoyed it on my second run through. Spending winter with C.J., Toby and the Bartlett Administration has been fun.
I hope your day has been uneventful but happy and that you feel you have achieved things - just taking care of yourself is an achievement in a busy world.
Have a wonderful evening or if the sun is coming up for you have a wonderful Ruby Tuesday.
Love and hugs,
