Hello everyone. I'm back from my two week visit to see Mum in Western Australia where I had a wonderful and busy time with many laughs and a lot of fun. We were up quite late one night with my nephew visiting and as we were peckish, Mum made pancakes at 1.30 in the morning for a snack. We were giggling like a pair of school girls at the ridiculousness of it all, we might have been just a tad tired too when everything seems so funny even if it isn't.
Sunday night back in Melbourne I was presented with this platter of goodies made by Genevieve. The cake is an apple and berry teacake and is surrounded by mini chocolate mousse in shot glasses and lemon melting moments.
My thanks to Genevieve who spent Saturday making these, a big sacrifice of her time as she is loaded with uni assignments and lectures to catch up on.
While my body may be back in Victoria, my mind often turns back to the time spent in Western Australia remembering childhood activities and marveling at the total difference in terrain to the part of Victoria where I live. I had a go at making daisy chains from Cape weed daisy flowers, something we use to do as kids. I had forgotten how much yellow pollen gets on your hands and clothes.
Another place full of childhood memories, the old log my sister and I would use for pretend tables and chairs. We were supposed to be gathering kindling for the wood heater but as is the way with kids, there were other more interesting things to do.
With daisy chain in hand I took some photos with the idea in mind I might photograph something suitable for a still life painting at a later date. One of these might do.
So now it is back to the routine. The garden is clamoring for attention, a little pruning was achieved today but there is weeding, sowing some vegetable seeds and planting annuals for spring and summer colour. The grass needs a trim which might have to wait until it dries out a little more.
Wishing you all a fabulous week.
