SmileWell this week has been rather mixed weather wise Tuesday was amazing , I accomplished quite a lot in the garden. By 4 30pm I was sitting in my garden chair enjoying the warm sunshine simply bliss..
I had Monday booked for lunch but had to be cancelled as one of my dear friends had taken to her bed, with a chest infection she is the dear lady of almost 90years old. So I was quite concerned , but her daughter sent me an email and said she was picking up after her medication. So here’s to that dear lady and hope she recovers quite soon.Red heart
By Wednesday the rain had arrived and it was quite a miserable and dull day , so off to the kitchen. Poured a nice cool orange squash and put my piny on(apron). Mince meat and onion pie and a cheese and tomatoe flan. I froze the left over pastry for another day probably to make apple pie. As the orchard is blooming this year very good year for apples, and I see a few pears there also. Cooking apples and not sure but also cidar apples which come in Oct/Nov.
Hope your week has been kind to you although some of you have I see had a few upsets and traumas. Wishing you all well and hope all turns out good very very soon. Take care of yourselves Red roseand here’s a few more pictures of those swans.

    Well it sounds like you are having a good time – busy and relaxed!NZ, and the South Island in particular, are having a very bad run; major earthquake and now a major storm devastating Southland farmers.Fortunately, I am in the North Island!Thanks for sharing the lovely swans again.

    Hi Sheila, Love your swans. My swans are as big as their parents now and it is sometimes hard to tell who is who. Hopefully I will be able to capture some more pic’s of them soon and maybe even in flight. Well you take care and have a great week, and thank you for stopping by and going for a walk around the Bay with me.Hugs, Dianne

    Yes Nat! Now doesn’t your background picture look neater and nicer now its not tiling and repeating all over the place? (bit like me after I’ve had something to eat) It looks so much better now, don’t you agree and well done! Okay, you’ve still had to repeat it sideways because it wasn’t wide enough, but the ‘join’ is behind this writing area so can’t be seen, and only the writing area scrolls. Clever girl! Well done I am proud of you!
    You can open a bottle of whatever takes your fancy now. 😉
