Another week has rolled around and this is Hannah's last week of the term before her first school holidays begin! I'm going to be having a couple of days off to spend with her so we might just chill out or go to the movies, and I'd like to get some sewing done too.
The weather here has been more like spring over the past week - this is the view from down our street - you can just make out the snow covered Ruahine Ranges in the back ground. On this day the temperature reached 18 c, crazy for midwinter huh!
Today I thought I'd share a few pics around home - our vegetable beds, the little seedlings in here are growing ever so slowly but we've got a good crop of spinach coming along.
Did I ever show a photo of our greenhouse finished?
We have pots of veges growing in there over the winter months - lettuces, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. These have been grown from seed and soon we'll be planting up seeds for spring.
We have a fairly large orange tree in one corner of our garden - it's many years old and was on our section before the house was built. We only ever get good fruit from it every second year and this year the tree is loaded. Hannah had alot of fun recently making freshly squeezed orange juice.
Hannah stayed over with Granny & Poppa Saturday night as we had a 60th birthday party to go to. What a great night we had, and I was able to catch up with some of my childhood friends. Yesterday morning DH and I went out for Sunday brunch to one of the local cafes and it was delicious!
Eggspresso - potato and kumara hash cakes, spinach, poached eggs, bacon, hollandaise sauce
I was so full afterwards I didn't eat again until teatime!
Hannah's best friend from school is off to Australia for the holidays so she had to ring her up for a chat - she loves the phone just as much as her mummy lol.
Hope your weekend was as lovely as ours x
