My Day in Photos

Today it was hot but not at hot as the southern states so we have been pretty lucky so far but I could see the girls were starting to get a bit bored, so out came the sprinkler. We have a water tank and a couple of weeks ago we had plenty of rain so with a tank of water and two hot girls it was a recipe for fun. Do you remember running through the sprinkler to cool off? It was such a fun summer time tradition which can't be done these days with water restrictions, which is a shame. While the girls were busy I got into the kitchen and baked away ready for a play date tomorrow at the park. I made some chocolate chip cookies with some pecan nuts in them and some banana cupcakes with maple cream frosting. And while I was in the cooking mood I put the slow cooker on and made some Ribollita which means reboiled and is a traditional Tuscan soup. It is a bit hot for soup but it was good to put everything in a let it cook away and I like to try a vegetarian dish once a week they feel really wholesome.
Enough rambling from me. I hope that you have kept cool and are enjoying the school holidays. Thanks for stopping by to visit.

  1. you were as bad as I was in the kitchen!
    I made 6 cakes but they were for a cake order, so I didn't mind it at all.

  2. I used to love running under the sprinkler when I was a kid! So much fun! We bought Grace one of those clam shells for Christmas so if it's hot here this afternoon, I might let her splash in that for a bit. What delicious baking - your cookies look yummo as do those cupcakes!! I'd like to try the Ribollita myself - it looks like a really hearty meal. Have a fun day with your girls :)

  3. banana muffins with maple cream frosting!!! come over here right now! mmmmm!

  4. It's been years since I seen a sprinkler lol, your girls look like their having a blast and what a great way to cool down, oh the memories from childhood lol!

    Your biscuits and cupcakes look, oh so good, I can taste them from here lol!

    Enjoy the rest of your week,
    Take Care,
