Apple cinnamon scrolls
What better way to nourish my hardworking husband than to feed him his favourite sweet? Apple and cinnamon anything is the way to Monte’s heart, and this morning Georgia and I (mostly Georgia) baked apple cinnamon scrolls for the family. They took longer to make than to eat, but a warm, freshly baked morning tea […]
Sundried tomato salad
I can’t help it. The colours in the salad I made for dinner last night made me think I should blog about it. I combined mixed salad greens with 1/2 cup of sundried tomatoes, 1/4 diced feta, an avocado and a few scrapings of parmesan cheese. For the dressing I splashed on 2 Tbsp balsamic […]
It’s that time of year again! We are getting zucchinis daily. We have four plants and they are thriving! We are also growing lettuce, silverbeet, potatoes, onions, strawberries, garlic, pumpkins, beans, carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers, but the zucchinis are doing the best.

I did it! I won! I’m so excited – and I actually had *real tears* as I typed my ‘final’ words (final for Nano, perhaps, but my story is not nearly finished!). I have typed over 50, 200 words this month. I am so happy. It was even worth the burnt Christmas cake. :D
I write with great excitement. I am about 1200 words away from finishing my 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo. I have written 48,767 words this month. Today, I have written just under 3500 words (not including this post), and I have spent less than an hour writing at my computer. I have to make the time […]
