Lazy Sunday Yumminess

30 Apr

As the year has progressed I’ve discovered I potter and tinker with a number of activities.  As a wife and mother one hobby that is a daily activity is cooking.

This morning has been a pancake kind of day.

It’s been a while

5 Apr

So it might have been a while since I’ve published a photo. I’ve been snapping away but taking the time to compose some thoughts and share has dropped on my priority list. 

As I dashed to rescue my car from the multi storey car parked tonight the sky was doing some interesting things. 

I believe there was a small controlled burnoff and the skies were streaked with colour from the smoke as the sun set. Of course the only camera on hand was my iPhone but a snap is better than nothing. 



This next one was taken from the 5th floor of the car park.  I wish I had not left my camera in the office.

Kaffir Lime

17 Feb

My 2016 Christmas present from my DS was a Kaffir Lime Tree.  I have lovingly planted in it’s pot and tending as best I know how.  Of course since I added this baby to my collection we have had all sorts of weather ranging from scorching hot to bitterly cold and winds strong enough to blow trees down.

I am rather pleased to see the tree is sprouting new leaves.

Even better, there was a happy dance the garden when I noticed that it’s flowering.

Yarn Chicken

16 Feb

I’m nearly finished my Son’s jumper and it’s become a case of how much longer can I make it before I don’t have enough yarn to finish the ribbed band across the hem.

As it happens, I had enough 🙂  Just needs a wash and pressing into shape, or in knitterly terms – blocking.

Dramatic Sky

15 Feb

I did warn that there would probably be lots of sunset photos this year.  I am amazed at the differences I see every night.

Yarn Dying

14 Feb

I have some rather clever friends who like to dye knitting yarn.  One of the techniques they use is to paint the yarn on knitted fabric.  As I have a number of knitting machines I knit the undyed blanks ready for the dying.

New Ferns

13 Feb

As my last fern purchase has been growing so well, I added to the collection today.  I have a few gaps in my mini fernery, so lets see how well these new babies grow.

Tonight the weather turned wet.  So after so many colourful sunsets the last week, todays was all about the clouds
