Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – October 31st – November 6th 2022 – Hits 1940s, Tony Bennett, Spiritual Awareness, Poetry, Podcast, Book Reviews, Health and Humour

Welcome to the round up of posts from the week that you might have missed on Smorgasbord.

I hope you have had a good week so far although I do find it hard to believe we are in November already. I don’t know where this year has gone but it seems to have flown by. Still I guess it is true, time flies when you are having fun!

We have had three heavy storms come across us in the last week and on one day 90 mph gusts. No major damage but we did lose our metal birdseed tree which was a favourite with the garden visitors as it snapped in two as it feel on to the patio. Thankfully the bird feed pyramid that David built on the stump of an old tree survived and at least our resident birds managed to get some food in the gaps in the weather. In a complete contrast there will be a couple of days in this next week with warm temperatures and sunshine.

My next book is finished and is now going to be polished and my tapestry is completed and will go to be stretched and framed. I have been enjoy my two hours every afternoon getting back into the needlework groove so I have ordered a new piece which should arrive this week. It is a big canvas and will keep me busy for a few months.

  1. I’m glad you didn’t sustain any more damage than the bird feeder, Sally. That was a crazy storm. I’m honored to have Saddled Hearts included in this week’s recap! Thank you!

  2. What a busy week full of a variety of blogs…
    Would be good to see your finished tapestry sometime.
    I’ve been inspired to do a bit of crochet but nothing too creative!?

      • I usually make silly crochet hats for Christmas. My children say ‘Oh Mum!’ but my nieces and now great nieces and nephews look forward to their Christmas offerings!
        Last year it was Christmas tree hats! (with lights)
        This year I made animal hats … my great nieces love them… my son not so happy for Alexander.
        But I’m pleased to say Alexander and crazy Nanny just keep them here for Thursday play day.
        Olivia loves her ‘Baby Shark Hat’ and that’s magic to me.
