Weekend Twitterings

On the weekend.....

  • Baking was done - granola, cocoa brownies (recipe here) and lemon cake.
  • Corn was popped - Ginger was so impressed.
  • Lots of weeding was done- I am not sure it has improved the look of the backyard at all.  It is now very patchy; rather like a soccerfield where a match has been played on a wet day.
  • There was a wander at the local park with teddy (the backyard with the rusty truck backs onto it).
  • There was changeable late winter weather - sunshine then rolling black clouds.
  • We had one tired little girl; lugging teddy and your cake around really take it out of you.
  • We ate a roast dinner with our own homegrown beetroot.


  1. Looks like you had a very full day! Bird of paradise! They don't grow around here unless of course you count buying them at a gardening store or from the grocer.

  2. I can't help but think of heaven when I see photos of clouds with the sunshine coming though like that.

    That photo of Ginger watching the popcorn is so precious! You can sense her amazement and intrigue. Having been in a microwave popcorn family all my life I was pretty darn impressed the first time Matt made me popcorn as well! He used a stir-crazy popper, but the magic is still the same!

  3. BLD - Yes, I always think of those pictures of God descending from heaven (you know old testament style) when I see sun through clouds:)

  4. It's pretty amazing watching little kids faces- watching popcorn cook. Very exciting!
