Happy Valentines Day to all of you who may stop at my blog. We are celebrating our usual quiet way. Saturday night is usually pizza and ice cream night while we watch tv or I sew and listen to tv. I am at that age where I can only eat ice cream once a week due to high cholesterol.

I also wanted to say how horrifying it has been to sit and watch our Australian friends try and cope with the horrible fires and loss of life. I have been lucky enough to have been to Australia and New Zealand twice and my favorite city in Australia is Melbourne. I loved the architecture of the city and the surrounding areas. We were made very welcome wherever we went. As a young gal growing up in Toronto I met a lot of young Australian guys who were just seeing the world. They would arrive, find work for a couple of months then move on to the next place they wanted to see. I always thought they were the most carefree group. Some had already been around the world just about. I haven't heard any news yet today so hope the fires have been contained by now. Will watch the 6.30 world news and find out.

I am posting pics of the third panel today. There is a bare white spot above the fan on the left corner that I dyed a piece of tatting for yesterday and sewed on last night. Tomorrow I will take a pic of the 3 panels together and see how they look.
The weather here in Florida has been beautiful the last couple of days. The sky at night is all shades of pink and blues. Must take a few pics. Pat Winter showed a pretty pic the other day of a beautiful sunrise all pink and blue sky but I am never up early enough to see the sun rise. Just the sun setting.
Hug your loved ones today.
