I don't usually do tapestry weaving at night but there is nothing on tv tonight that I want to see, except the analysis of the Federal Election today. I will listen occasionally but it is early in the evening and people are just predicting. I live in a safe Labor seat, so it will all depend on the marginal seats, I assume.
I am so grateful that we can go to voting booths and not be in danger, that voting is compulsory and that it is just a normal part of our lives. Tales from people I know who come from other countries remind us of the privilege we have of a safe voting environment and the human rights we take for granted. I also like the fact that we vote for a party, not a person.
I did a little weaving today but had the important job of watching the television this afternoon as Hawthorn played Fremantle in the football (Australian Football League). I don't like watching it on tv, I would much rather see it live, but it was in Tasmania, which is a bit far to go. I couldn't ignore it and ended up watching it on tv. As you might assume, little was achieved in terms of weaving today.
I rushed in at the quarter (and half) times and did a little (little being the operative word) and will perhaps do some tonight.
I am more interested in the vote than I used to be when I was younger - I couldn't understand why the older people were so interested but now I get it.
