Autumn is here



Stella in a rare moment, curled up, looking sweet.

As darkness falls,
swollen with stormy winds
it spits the moon:
the looming peak of autumn
pines chill the crest.

This reminds me of last Thursday's weather... Stella's coat is getting thicker & Winter woollies are coming out! The heater is on and we're sitting around the heater drinking the last of the New Orleans coffee and enjoying slices of homemade Bakewell Tart with apricot jam in place of raspberry.

Off to the Football this afternoon ....to Telestra Dome to see the Hawks play the Magpies. Of course hope Hawthorn wins but my heart is up in Sydney hoping the Swans thrash Port Adelaide. I love the excitement, the hope, the feeling of elation when your team wins and even the despair, the emotions when they lose (how could they have missed that easy goal!). Of course not many fans would agree with me there.
