Cat's Cradle


When we were children, my brother and I used to play a game called Cat's Cradle on rainy days (pre ipod, computer games or mobile phones). A piece of string was tied in a loop and held with the outstretched fingers by one person while the other person made patterns with the string. The string-pattern went form hands to hands until something slipped and you got a tangled mess like the cat had been playing with it..then you started again. We loved it.

If you were good at it, the patterns could look something like this.



Or this.


What on earth is it?  The view up the centre of one of these..



Have a good weekend everybody. Seize the day and treasure it.

Sitting around



Sitting around waiting for customers in the hair extension shop.


No I haven't gone traveling, except to a nearby suburb in south western Sydney. I asked these ladies if I could take their picture and they all started to pose so I said, no, please just do what you were doing and they did.

I'll be linking to weekend reflections, James's meme. Check it out.

Seagull Reflections


Is there anything as free, or as independent as a raucous seagull?

Yes, a bunch of them sitting on posts in the winter sunshine watching progress on renovations to my favourite sea bath at my favourite beach.


I will be linking to weekend reflections at the end of the week.


Stay safe and well,

Val.
