Or maybe spring hasn't sprung at all.
Today the Bureau of Meteorology told us that tonight's minimum temperature will be 13* (C - which is around 55* in the old money)and this coming Sunday's MAXIMUM is going to be 13*!!!
Nice and warm and no need to add a quilt to the bed for tonight, and by Sunday the forecast is for snow down to 1,000 metres...
I have had the Rayburn fired up a bit recently. And made some overly sweet pancakes from a recipe that I found on an American blog. They had started with a basic pancake mix with a spiral of butter melted with cinnamon and castor sugar. Flip the pancake, finish cooking them all, layer them and add a frosting with cream cheese, icing sugar and cinnamon. The sugar burst made me fall asleep almost immediately. Furthermore, the original creator never said that I would need a cold chisel to get the cinnamon toffee off the pan...
I am not going to credit the original source cos I don't think it is one to repeat.
I didn't get a photo of the plated up product - it DID look so good that The Sweetheart and I fell upon it like wolves upon the fold...
I have been knitting. knitting. knitting...
It is getting bigger and bigger!!! There is enough left from 8 metres of what is on one of the skeins to make one of the tiny squares which start with 8 stitches per side.
There is a pretty rainbow of other bundles that I am combining to make multi-coloured squares. There are a few in it already, each made of up to four different but similar colours.
Aren't they pretty?
And then to finish off, for the moment - LOOK WHAT HAS MOVED IN DOWN THE ROAD!!!!!!!
Aren't they so totally gorgeous and amazing?! They are just in a paddock, a hundred metres up on the edge of the bush, just down the road from me. As if it isn't enough to have the Clydesdales on holiday from Sovereign Hill next door to alpacas, donkeys and an emu, and lots of other horses, sheep, cattle now we have a lovely little zoo.
It doesn't matter that although all the rest are truly ruly real animals and these are life-size statues. They are fabulous!
I wish I had some, too.
