I spent this morning reading Don Burke's Organic. It's all about building an organic vege garden.
Periodically, I paced down to the blank spot in our yard with the tape measure and measured the space for no real reason. I made lists of vegetables I would grow, and all the paraphenalia I'll need to get started.
I'm very excited. Now all I need is a working set of lungs.
At my request, we took a drive to Brookfield in search of horse poo. That's something else I'm going to need a truckload of. All we could find was one bag. I'm hoping the shortage has got nothing to do with Hendra Viras!
On the way back home via Fig Tree Pocket, we noticed lots of houses still laying flood damaged and empty. It's so sad to see and there are so many of them. Let's hope the well-oiled-machine that is our government will soon get around to finally distributing the financial donations made in January. It looks like many people could do with the assistance!
I'd have to say I'm also a bit chuffed about another book. It's called Australian 50s 60s Decor: Furniture and furnishings of the Mid 20thC by William and Dorothy Hall. You'll find it at the council library.
During my recuperation I have also been whizzing through the latest Instyle mag. Loved Nanette Lepore's decoration of her house in the Hamptons. It was refreshingly different, and not white. If you come across the magazine, have a look. Unfortunately, there aren't very many pictures though.
While we're on the subject, this is her City pad in NYC. Not bad either!
...and New York and great style, leads me onto this book.
It has C.Z. Guest on the front, but I believe it's difficult to find and expensive to buy? It's something to keep your eyes open for if you're into that sort of thing. I think it covers all of Truman Capote's Swans, like Babe Paley and Slim Keither also.
Well that's all I'm good for at the moment I'm afraid. Let's hope the drugs kick in tomorrow with gusto!!
