I was so happy when dear Boy 16 came home from work yesterday. We have been apart since Friday morning!
I think he was happy to be home too. He played with NEMO for ages (seems to be his fave), and then he cuddled up to his giraffe for a nap. This picture just melts me :)
He is such a sweetie. The back of his legs look odd because that is a bit of late afternoon sun shining on him. We will have to say our good byes Friday morning as he continues to pass all of his training. I sure will miss him. He has been good fun.
I had a letter last week saying the power on my street will be off for 8 hours Monday. Yikes! I am dependent on the power for nebuliser treatments. The power company suggested I spend the day at the hospital. *NOT*!! I decided to do extra treatments up until the time of turn off, then make myself sit quietly all day. I managed to finish all the basting prep for the turtle pincushion by Anni Downs.
The same rainbow silverbeet I paid 50 cents for many months ago is still feeding me and the baby spinach seeds in the next pot are now pretty leaves ready to pick too.
The cherry tomatoes are still coming. That is a jalapeno pepper at the top. I am not a huge lover of green stuff, but if I chop all those leaves up and make them into an impossible pie with some tomatoes and cheese, that green stuff will be tasty :)
I know quite a few people on my blog list also have this blog on their reading list too. If you read Down to Earth, you will know her name. She and husband Hanno have been speaking at libraries in my area. Tomorrow they will be at Redcliffe Library, which is the closest to where I live. I signed up to attend around 3 weeks ago, and the day is nearly here, at last! I have been so inspired the past few years by all the simple living things I have learned from Rhonda. I think my favourite of all was learning to make my own yoghurt with no special packets or equipment needed. I am very much looking forward to this special day. xx debbie
