I am really enjoying Cricket's 30 day challenge, however seem to have hit a brick wall with my writing, and get stuck after choosing the title and the picture. Well that's not quite true, I can usually get the first paragraph done.
What better thing to do on Sunday afternoon, than to spend it at the dining room table doing jigsaws?
I've been managing to unpack a few boxes a week but I'm quickly running out of places to put things.
It would seem that we are destined to have a different group of animals escape from their pen every week. This week it was the ducks turn. The best part is they didn't go far.
As I was walking out tonight to feed the animals and check on the calves and sheep, I got to see the most gorgeous sunset. It really makes you appreciate living out in the country, because although I would have seen this in Christchurch city, it would not have been this beautiful or this peaceful.
I always find it surprising how simple it is to put your body clock out of sync. One single night where you can't sleep, and catch up in the afternoon of the next day is all it takes.
There really isn't anything like the smell of fresh bread that's just come out of the breadmaker. Today I thought I would share a bread recipe that I used to use when living at home, and still use today. It's also very easy to adapt to different flavours.
It's been another hot North Canterbury day, perfect for an evening BBQ with family, and we were in for a treat.
I managed to get back out in the garden today and dig up a bit more of the weeds. It was all made harder because hubby broke my grubber yesterday trying to dig a ditch. I decided that now I should do up a planting schedule of what I want in the garden, so that I make sure I plant what I want when it should be.
Today I was helping my mum unpack a few things, and we came across a box of breakable ornaments that I'd obviously been holding onto for a while for her and it probably hadn't been unpacked for a good number of years.
