Christmas Ornament Swap

I participated in the Christmas Ornament Swap organised by Louise. These are the ornaments I made- not really traditional or Christmassy- except they remind me of summer, the sun and long hots days (we’re having planty of them!) Also, I’m a little obsessed with this fabric. What can I say?

And this is the cherry tree in our new garden. I’m watching them like a hawk, ready to get to them before the birds. I may have to climb a tree, something I haven’t done in a while!!


Apparently it’s Spring

Yesterday I noticed the tree outside the lounge window has leaves.

When did that happen??!!

A ray of sunshine

Spring has arrived.

Thankful Friday

The first snow drop in my garden. Spring must be on the way!


The nor’wester that blew through today- transforming the pile on my bathroom floor into a folded pile waiting to be put away.


Pedro- hasn’t he grown? He’s grounded me for the last few months, but I can’t work out what makes you crazier- talking to a cat, dog or yourself. It’s a good thing I don’t have a cat or I’d have hit the trifecta.


Learning to see again

…through the veiwfinder of my smart new E-410, as eluded to a couple of weeks ago. Oh how slack have I been? I’ve been taking a photography night class at one of the lcoal high schools- community education is the new black!

A couple of photos I captured on friday:

We’re getting stuck into the lettuce and strawberries! Yum!

Have fire, will barbeque

Yesterday we finally got the bbq Mum and Dad gave Michael for his 21st birthday out of it’s box and set it up, the proceeded to cook stuff.




(Courgettes, mushrooms and homemade meat patties- yum!)

It’s very cute, and as well as being used to grill you can cook whole chickens in there and smoke stuff like fish too! I think we will have a fun time this summer working out how to use it properly.

Also I signed up for NaBloPoMo, which may be a little ambhitious, and I’m sure the posts will go from interesting to boring and mundane, but we’ll see how we go eh? There’s a badge, and I’ll get it sometime when I’m not procrastinating study for the exam I have in less than 24 hours. Heh.
