It has arrived .. winter that is. The weather has gone from gorgeous balmy autumn days to being bleak, windy, cold and wet. Did I say very wet?
We went to the beach the other day – the weather was so bad, we didn’t leave the vehicle, but instead watched the waves as they crashed on the shore and the kite surfers as they hammered up and down the beach obviously relishing the stormy conditions!
Time to call it a day
I’m sitting here tapping away on the laptop and peering over my glasses as the sun is starting to leave us for the day.
I have a nice beef dish in the slow cooker with chilli, star anise and soy, rice vinegar, tomato and ginger – the aromas are divine. This is perfect tucker for damp days and a glass of Pinot Noir of course!
It has been interesting at Frog Pond Farm lately. Both the lads have been in hospital. Hubby had a shoulder reconstruction and has the joy of wearing a sling for 6 weeks, while Dan our pooch (he thinks he is human) underwent a major op to remove a massive growth from his liver. Thankfully both of them are on the road to recovery …
A big thanks to Ruth and her horticulture students who paid us a visit yesterday and pruned our feijoa trees! How lucky am I?
I have this thing about clouds …
… and beautiful scenery
…. and wood 😀
