Today has been a little bit of a different day for me. Normally at this time of day I would be sitting at home wading through emails and trying to get some work done. Instead I had to help James bring some photography gear out to a job so I have a few hours to kill waiting for him before we take it back home again.
I had a bit of wander around Carlton park and found a nice shady bench to sit on. It’s a really lovely park and has some beautiful buildings as well.
I wish we lived closer because it’s really refreshing to just sit here in the cool breeze and people watch.
My camera connects directly to my iPad (which I’m writing this on) so here are some of the photos I’ve taken so far ^_^
This is like a live version of snapshots haha! I even managed to balance the camera on some sticks for a where I walk shot! I’m trying to break in my new shoes today but the backs still rub quite badly so I had to add some socks. I’m thinking of trying out knitting some lace socks like this for my first sock project.
There is a group of little old ladies monopolising the basketball court as they work out. They totally look like they are having some kind of gang meeting in their work out clothes.
It was supposed to be very hot today but there is a lovely breeze coming through…that said a weird yellow bug just crawled onto my bag.
There are heaps of people here with their dogs too. I think Lottie would love rolling around in the grass! We’ve considering trying to buy an apartment again when our lease is up so maybe we should look in this area. Kris gave me some directions to lovely cafes but I wanted to take some photos in the park first.
Let’s see, what else is happening today? I’m a little desperate to go home because I will hopefully have a package of new watercolour paints waiting. I say hopefully because I’ve been waiting for 2 weeks now for the package to get from Byron Bay to Melbourne but that’s a story to put in the review I’m going to write when/if it arrives >_>
My comfy bench…
I’m really excited for these paints because it’s a lot more colours than I’m used to and they are actually set into fabric so you can fit a full colour pallet onto a page of paper for portability *_* it would have been really nice to be able to sit in the park and paint today but I’m a few hours early I guess. Timing has really not been my friend this week!
The grass here is all covered in dew drops, it’s so pretty.
There are an awful lot of people making out in this park XD
I’ve been keeping busy at nights by knitting a new shirt. It’s using stretchy yarn that has some elastic woven in so it should give a good fit when it’s done. The endless rows of stockinette have been really relaxing while watching tv at night and it’s the perfect project for watching subtitled TV.
We bought a subscription to Crunchy Roll and I’ve been totally obsessed with the show Servant X Service. It’s so freaking funny and I hope they make another season! We are having issues getting the streaming to work with Chromecast though so I think we will cancel next month and see what else is available. I really wish Funimation was available in Aus because they have all of the 90’s shows I used to watch! Stupid licensing laws. We might have to get a VPN at this rate.
I hope you guys enjoyed the live snapshots haha! It was really fun to write so maybe we can make it a proper thing again ^_^
