Andrew had to strip down to his sexy red braces!
Charles from our brigade was there for his 20th street appeal. What can you say about that kind of dedication, except three cheers for Charles!
Saturday, just to be totally different, was stormy and wild. A good day for resting by the potbelly after Fireys and reading a good book, complete with Labradors of course.
The girls are loving the fire. You can see Rosie's matching shaved patches on her front legs from having her drip in. So far so good, though we had to put her back on her cortisone and cross fingers her tum handles it. She really is just too itchy to do without it. We'll see how she goes now she is fully transferred over to the crocodile and tapioca roll we are getting her. Geez, we eat way cheaper than she currently is! :)
This was an odd weather phenomenon we saw this week.
At least all the rain has brought back some green grass as last! Woo hoo!
Every year these trees take more nutrient from the paddock and the grassed area gets a bit less, but it doesn't matter any more, because we all do is mow it anyway, now there are no horses.
It's the season for baking too. This almond flour, pear and apple tart with rice-milk custard was part of Andyroo's birthday prezzie this year. :)
The crust recipe comes from Elana's kitchen. It's a bit rich for me but he loves it. :)
I also finished these gold wrist warmers for him a day late. He liked the look of mine so much he wanted a pair too!
We have another storm forecast for tonight and early Tuesday morning. Fingers crossed all our trees have their toes down nice and deep...
