Books my children used to read  in English and German;

My granddaughter reading, using the ipad.

Micah uses braille to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

Wednesday; solar eclipse;

Tourist towns in far north Queensland are witnessing a total solar eclipse, the first in Australia for a decade.

It is the first full solar eclipse to occur in Australia since the same eerie darkness fell on Ceduna in South Australia ten years ago.

It takes the moon about an hour to pass from first contact, when it begins to cross the sun's path, to totality, when the sun is completely obscured.

During those few minutes of totality, it will seem like a moonlit night.

 A black hole in the sky will be seen, with a pearly white filamentary corona around it for several degrees.'

Up to 60,000 people are re expected to visit Cairns for the eclipse, while a further 15,000 are set to pack Port Douglas.

The next total  solar eclipse in Australia will be seen in Sydney in 2028.

Tuesday; DIY;

What about a chair made from an old suitcase?

From old bathtub to sofa; with a  few more cushions; not bad!

Contemporary sideboard from milk crates;  ideas...ideas...

Recycled; computer desk from wooden cable spools;

I think it looks much better and more individual than furniture from KMart! 

What do you think?

Monday; puddles;

It rained, 70 mm;  the sun is shining, today I am out there getting my hands dirty.
Bromeliad's little lakes, perfect for tiny frogs.
