Fresh flowers around the home. The white ones are from my Sister n law Em and the pink ones picked on one of our walks. I have no idea what they are hence the "white" and "pink" names.
Smoked chillies from a friend. He grows them and smokes them himself. Not sure what Mr H has instore for these, but they smell so good I just want to eat them from the bag.
The North Island of New Zealand is currently experiencing a drought. Some areas have not had rain since Christmas. After the few days of grey last week I put the winter woollen blankets on the bed. This week they are off again and I even have the fans out too. Our area is predicted to not get any decent rainfall until May! Last year we had such a wet Summer and Winter. So this has come as a bit of a shock.
My poor vegetable garden. The idea was to not plant this up until Autumn/Winter as the Summer heat just burns everything. It is so dry at the moment. And even though we are on tank water there are huge water restrictions in place everywhere so I don't even want to use our garden hoses which are hooked up to the vineyard bores. Today it is 30 degrees. And I think we had a light shower during the night........which probably amounted to a tablespoon of water!
I have started on my china cabinet. Mr H showed me how to use the electric sander, but I hate it. Not kind on the senses. The boys hate the noise too. So I'm going to continue the sanding by hand. I have a beeswax polish to finish it off with.
Spaghetti, cheese, bacon and onion baskets. A weekend snack for the kids.
Our new furry friends. Violet on the left and Dash on the right. I was only mean't to get one. But they are brother and sister and I did not want to separate them. We have hardly seen them since they arrived on Saturday. They spend their days hiding in the corn fields next door. We are going to tempt them inside for a few days so they can get used to us (and the noise).
Have a great week! What's happening in your part of the world?
