The Weekend. Mostly In Pictures.

Posted by MANDI at 10:58 PM
Spike, aka Psycho Spyko, aka Spike-a-licious, chilling out on the couch.

We went shopping for vegie seedlings.

Then Hubby and the kids planted them.

I sat around drinking tea, reading the paper and not doing an awful lot else. It was nice. Really nice.

A neighbour was wanting to get rid of some plants. Funnily enough they were exactly what we wanted for out the front. Hubby and the boy-child wandered off and dug them up, loaded them into the trailer and brought them home. Then Hubby and the kids planted them. I took photos. That was helping. Sort of.

Look. Girl-child was obviously helping a lot. You know, if dirty knees are a measure of how helpful one is.

Here's the ever helpful (NOT!!) puppy. She's now 5 months old, completely naughty, far too clever for own good and apparently she quite likes to dig. She really likes digging my roses. I really don't like that.

I did manage to spend most of today playing in the kitchen. And covering every inch of the kitchen bench.  Look, you can see my computer at the top of the photo - I promised Kaz ages ago that I'd put a picture of it on here so she could see it. It's on a swinging arm attached to the end wall and I can have it facing me when I'm working in the kitchen or turn it around when I want to sit on the other side of the bench. The very clever Hubby sorted that for me.

And I had my first ever attempt at making Macarons. They weren't a complete success but they worked well enough that I want to have another go. I also made custard from scratch for the first time ever. If I'd known it was that easy I would have done it years ago.

Sounds like a very relaxing weekend...well for you anyway...Glenn, perhaps not! Thanks for the pic, your hubby is indeed a 'Thinking Man'! Kaz x

I love Spike's sleeping position! What a cool cat!
Yum, real custard! I love it but I usually only make it at Christmas, although I did do creme caramels a few months ago.

Since when has Girl-child's hair become so dark??

Your weekend sounds great - nice and relaxing for sure. As for your macaroons - well done! Look delicious.
