Sorry for the silence, there’s been a lot going on here which has kept me away from home and the computer. I thought Id share today with you… from morning till night. A quiet Sunday, the last day of the school holidays before the new term.
:A cup of green tea and a new yellow begonia:
:after breakfast, a family bike ride::essential supplies::some of us chose to read, and eat our morning tea::in the beautiful sunshine::some of us built dinosaur houses::some of us took photos::the boys went to a birthday party, and the girls spent some quality time baking something special to have for dessert::lemon meringue pie is one of my favorite desserts, and a good use of plenty of lemons::here’s something of a family tradition. When my Nana had any pastry left over, when she was baking a pie crust, she always made little jam tarts. Waste not, want not! My Mum did it, and now I do it. Just push small pieces of dough into mini cupcake pans, add a dollop of jam, and a small piece of pastry on top:
:there really is not much better than a sweet raspberry tart straight from the oven!::a wander around the garden, my first daffodil is almost out: :and the first small bloom of Daphne: :we are blessed with winter bounty right outside the door. Some cabbage: :and cavelo nero, together with broccoli and plenty of herbs are keeping us going through winter: :not to mention, plentiful citrus:
:a spot of reading::beautiful early cheer, brought by a friend to brighten my day::make your own pizza for dinner::so delicious straight from the oven::in goes dessert:: out comes dessert::better be quick, its going, going… gone!::turns out mabel our favorite chicken, loves pizza as much as we do::the day is done::and now, I’m going to watch a little tv in front of the fire and then early to bed::How was your weekend? xx :
