Well Summer is finally here!...oops! Sorry, Spring! It always comes in with a bang and we wonder how we will cope with Summer if it's this hot already! But it calms down a bit for a while until the main event.
I took this shot mainly for Beate so she could see the shorts on me that I made to her pattern, shown in this post. I actually went for a run this morning! And my heart was fine! Just my legs and breathing to work on. Normal stuff...yay! (And the shorts didn't fall down)
Some additions to the pot garden, mostly succulents
stolen donated from my parent's garden, to welcome in Spring...and a much awaited lemon tree!
My geraniums are resprouting at the same time as the Winter pansies are still flowering on the table.
This year's herbs are international. Aussie mint, Italian parsley, and Thai basil!
On the schooling front we have had a change in circumstances. Mr Actor wasn't coping at school, even with my driveway support. He was becoming dangerously skinny and catching every bug in sight. So I've decided to remove him from school under a medical certificate and we are home schooling for now.
We have had such a turn around in energy and activity I know it was the right decision.
He got back on the bike.
Chopped up some wood with Dad's new hatchet.
And due to his challenges star chart being filled, was able to get a new guitar!
Here he is learning to sew a piece of paper...
...look at those straight stitches!
He is a great cook so we had banana and walnut loaf made.
And I scored a cup of tea with chocolate covered walnuts...all invented by him!
Mr Artist has been hard at work playing World of Tanks these holidays, winning battle after battle and climbing the tiers. He now knows more about tanks than I ever knew and our conversations are regularly peppered with tank initials and numbers.
We also had fun inventing a ghost hand shake one day!
So as the day finishes and the golden light shines through my wax mobile, I'll say farewell...
...and leave you with Winter's cute sleeping face! (Taken by Mr Actor)
'Til next time, keep on creating!
