Hello everyone. This past week has been busy with not much time for posting or creating. Last Saturday we drove to Bendigo for my brother-in-law's 60th birthday. Once we were out of the city we could enjoy views like this.
I made use of time sitting in the car by crocheting a few rows on my giant granny square throw.
Unfortunately Charlotte had to work so was unable to come with us. Genevieve was able to come though and looks surprisingly cheerful in this photo despite the fact she was studying for a French exam. (Exams all finished now!)
We had family from Adelaide staying with us for a few days after the party which was lovely. Before they arrived I was able to go to painting class and start a new portrait. I've blocked it in which basically means getting rid of the white canvas and painting the basic layout.
This is what I'm painting. It's the same lady from my first portrait, different angle, different garments and different setting. I will be using artistic license to edit a few things from the picture which will be fun.
Poor Charlotte had her car break down this week which is a bit rough when you've only had your license for a week and a half. From all accounts it looked a bit like this.
We managed to get the car home from the shopping centre, hubby has identified the problem and in the process of fixing it. Just waiting for spare parts.
One of our chooks has been working extra hard this week.
|Normal size egg|
|Extra, extra large egg.|
The next two eggs laid were broken, so I can only imagine much energy and calcium went into laying that extra large egg.
Flowering in the garden now are roses,
Pandorea, an Australian native climber,
one Sweet Pea seedling that survived winter,
and some carrots in the vege patch that will hopefully one day look like those on the tag.
Unfortunately there are no photos of the lettuce, the chooks decimated them!
This evening we are off to Genevieve's school Valedictory dinner which is a bit of a formal affair. It's pouring rain here today so I hope all the girls manage to get under cover before their gorgeous dresses get ruined.
Wishing you all a fab weekend,
