Thursday Sunset

I tried out the camera on my iPhone again tonight, this time taking a photo of a pretty orange sunset sky. The phone will never replace my actual cameras – I have two Canons – but it’s good to get some practice in with the iPhone for those times when a camera isn’t handy.

Yesterday my granddaughter spent the day with me, and my daughter suggested that for something different, she might like to play with my mother’s old jewellery. Aurora loves beaded jewellery, as did her great-grandmother. I have had the jewellery hoarded away for the past 27 years in a box, collecting dust in the top of my wardrobe, so it made sense to get the jewellery out for Aurora.

She had the best time with the jewellery! Not content with just one string of beads, Aurora wanted to wear all of it, so of course I had to take a photo. πŸ™‚

    1. I hope my grandchildren do remember their visits to my house when they were tiny, but even if they don’t, I have photos to remind them. πŸ˜‰
      There’s an Australian singer called Josh Pyke and I have a few of his CDs that I always play when I’m out in my car. One song, Even In Corners, has these lyrics –
      “There was magic
      In my grandmother’s house
      When I was just barely a boy
      And I’d go searching
      With my sisters
      Through rooms where our mother
      Used to sleep”
      Even before I had grandchildren, I decided that was the kind of house I wanted mine to be, for my grandchildren to grow up with happy memories of their visits. πŸ™‚


      1. Oh what a beautiful song! I just listened to it on YouTube and my eyes are full of tears. Thank you so much for sharing it. There was magic in my grandmother’s house, too, and I know Katherine feels there is magic in our house. I have two wooden bird carvings, they’re not toys but she was allowed to play with them and looked for them every time she visited. I can’t wait until she can come visit again, and I can’t wait until Finn comes, too, to make his own grandmother’s house memories. πŸ’™

        1. You found the song! I love Josh Pyke’s music, it’s so easy to listen to and some of the lyrics he writes are so profound!
          I love the wooden birds story. And I do hope Kate can visit her magical grandmother’s house soon. ❀
