A small leafy shadow

Noting the date today, I see I have been away from my blog for a week and I don't have any particular reason that I can think of, except that I have been feeling a little grumpy.
An "eeyore" sort of grumpy.
Not the irritable sort of grumpy, not a flurry of worries or anything like that, nor a disquieting conversation with someone that has left you feeling a little put out and, definitely not that.....but the little feelings of unease and not being able to settle on any one thing satisfactorily.

You know what I mean, don't you...the sort of feeling you get when you find a box of roses chocolates in the cupboard, that you had completely forgotten about, left over from Mother's Day and placed at the back of some tins of savory tomatoes that you had overstocked on because they were "on special". You bring the box down from the cupboard and discover that someone else had made the discovery before you, and had consumed the lot and left the empty box behind without even a " ha,ha got you" note inside.
Then there is the $50.00 note that you thought you had hidden away in your purse, hidden behind the post office receipts for parcels sent, and ones that you have to keep just in case the parcel doesn't reach the receiver. You discover something special ( like a book that you have heard a good review of on the radio), delve in your purse for that $50.00 note and find that you must have already spent it, and the worst thing is that you can't remember doing it !

It's the same feeling you have when you buy tickets in advance for a concert or show, and make a note of the date in your calendar, then find out you missed it when you read the review in the local paper.

None of those things have happened to me in this last week, although I have experienced them all at other times, no it is just a vague feeling of unease.... hmmm,
I must be feeling unsettled because I haven't done any knitting or spent time in my workshop for a while, but here are some pics taken in the garden which is where I been spending rather a lot of time lately.

I think its this Nelson blustery wind! the teachers at kindy prepare for slightly crazy kids when its windy so there you go. I'm off to clean some windows to get rid of my very slight grumpiness - it will pass.... and if it doesn't, come and have a cup of tea with me! hope you enjoy the weekend.KP
