How was your Monday? I hope it was a relaxing one. We decided to stay home today, keep things quiet before we head back into a new term tomorrow.  I'm feeling refreshed and hoping I can keep that feeling for a while but it usually doesn't last, school will go straight back to full on mode I'm sure. Today with my camera in handy reach I snapped a few photos of things that caught my eye.  This is what today looked like.
 I love the light catching in the fish bowl today.
 They played a few games of connect four.
 I made a big mess in the kitchen today.
Oh yes this is my Easter bunny.
My first attempt at making hot cross buns.  They were meant to be choc chip but the chips melted they got the approval of the family which was good after the time consuming and messy process.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

I seem to have really good moments when I remember to get my camera out daily more so when we go out and about but then when we are just home I get busy and forget.  Today we had family over for Easter so for the last couple of days there has been lots of preparation done for their arrival. There was gardening, mowing, cubby house cleaning (which was a big job), cooking, cleaning and sewing.  They arrived mid morning, we ate lots, chatted, played in the cubby house, created more loom bracelets and enjoyed being together.  So although these photos aren't one from each day hopefully they make up for my irregular daily photos.
How has your Easter been?  I hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable time.
 Miss Molly aware that there was something going on, she always gets a little quiet.
 I bought a bunch of flowers to decorate the table.
 My cute little niece walking around with her cousins old doll, she is a girl always on a mission
The start of my shawl blocking.  I was a bit nervous about starting this so my mother in law explained to me what I needed to do and how very long it's going to take ahhh lots of patience.

So today the girls and I managed to achieve one thing on the holiday list of things to do, visit the museum and art gallery ✓
It was a beautiful day in the city for a visit so much so that I think everyone else had the same idea because it was very, very busy.  We met my friend and her three daughters and wandered around together stopping for lunch and an afternoon tea treat of an ice cream.  There was just a little bit of chatting in between the play and supervision of the girls so I think we'll have to organise a catch up for just the two of us for another day. 
Here is a snapshot of our day together.
May your Friday be a happy one tomorrow.

Wasn't the moon beautiful tonight? I am always in awe of nature.  Here is my little version, I don't quite have the lens power to take a nice close photo.  I included the second photo because if you look closely to the right of the moon it looks like you can see another planet...
