Morning everyone, I hope my blog is a little easier on the eye now. My daughter had a play as well last night. Her choice was just way to bright for me as was my first choice yesterday. So now I have settled on this background and colour.
My daughter and I have also been busy making some fridge magnets that I can sell this weekend at the Gordonvale markets. I so hope the weather stays the way it is today. Sunny and a degree or two cooler I think.
My cousin and I did our first Oral History yesterday for our local museum. We used a video camera while the interviewee chatted about growing up in this area. The plan is to edit the video and add photos of what the interviewee was talking about and have this playing at the museum when people visit. The lady we spoke to yesterday turns 98 this year. She was such a pleasure to talk to and to listen to. Growing up in a hut type house, dirt for floor. Washing clothes in the creek. I so loved this, - we asked if growing up she could remember any special medications. She told us that if she or her siblings had a sore throat her Mum would take off her shoes and socks and wrap those socks around the daughters neck. Eeeewwww! Not sure how that is meant to work but maybe it was not meant to cure just to stop complaining. :-) Another one she remembers is for nits - rinising her hair with kerosene. Now that would kill anything.
Have a terrific Tuesday. I am washing, washing and washing as it has been raining, raining and raining. Gladly I have a washing machine in my house.
