The girls at 'chook headquarters' are often on the receiving end of our leftovers. Here's Louise enjoying some leftoever vegemite toast for her breakfast this morning. Does is get any more Australian than that?
A random eucalypt leaf and my cute new crochet brochet!
Hello dear friends. I've been a bit slack haven't I? Lots of goings on at our house (including the passing of the hermit crab (RIP Trixie), which have left my blogging energy somewhat depleted. But, I'm feeling much better now. This was helped along by a lovely (Jane on her own) visit to the cottage garden nursery, come cafe, come antique/secondhand shop at East Brisbane. What a delightful way to spend some time. I even went so far as to sit in the cafe with my journal and do some writing while I enjoyed a cuppa and a piece of orange and almond cake. There was the most precious canary whistling his little heart out which added to the lovely atmosphere.
A batch of pikelets were in order this afternoon. These leftovers will be toasted for breakfast tomorrow.
I even made the most of an opportunity for a quiet sit down and a little pot of my 'flavour of the month' tea, French Earl Grey. MMmmmm, soothing and nurturing. I began a liver detox yesterday, so today my tastebuds had new ideas about what to eat, and I had that detox headache. Craving protein, so a steak on the BBQ for dinner tonight and back to eggs for breaky again. I just hope my chookies (sofia and louise) can keep me in good supply of eggs. It's times like now I wish I had six chooks for lots of eggs, but for our little 'city farm', two is enough.
On the creative side of things, I've been making these sweet garlands.
I hope you've discovered some simple beauty this week and had some 'you' time. It's nearly the weekend, have a good one!
