Weekly Stills

*This week there was the cooking of new recipes to me. I've been making an effort to try something new each week.  I made this delicious pesto, give it a try the tomatoes are a nice fresh addition, simple and quick too.
* Miss 13's first bit of home ec. baking for all of us to enjoy, Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
* After being inspired by Amber I baked some bread rolls to go with this healthy soup for the little one who has a cold.  She much preferred the rolls to the soup but I'll keep on trying new things, there will be one she likes I'm sure.
* Cubby houses built by my little one, pegs, blankets, pillows, chairs and lots of toys. She is always creating something.
* A fresh new haircut for me.  It always feels good to have some time to yourself doing something just for you.  Even better when your hairdresser is your adopted Aunty because you've known her your whole life and you get to catch up too. It's hard to take a selfie at least for me, maybe I should get one of the girls to take a picture of me next time.
* A swimming carnival for the little one.  She tried so hard and powered on to finish two big races of 50m each.
* Marigolds in the garden.
* Some of my favourite garden visitors.

Playing along with the ever so lovely Em today.

  2. Pretty new hair. I'm laughing about liking the bread rolls over the soup. Sometimes a good bread roll and butter really is the most simplest, yet most satisfying thing.

    Your haircut reminds me of royal Kate - quite a treat to have a new cut, especially as you know your hairdresser so well.

  9. What a wonderful week in your lives. Thank you for sharing such precious photos, I'm a new follower!
    It's lovely to share photos with other friendly bloggers! The swimming carnival picture is incredible. I would have to echo Monique's thoughts regarding your daughter's grand effort.
    And if that's Miss 13s first home ec attempt at making muffins I'm happy to see you've added a young accomplished baker in the family.

  10. Great pics, especially the swimming shot. I'm loving bread making at the moment. Maybe it's the thought of cooler months ahead? Soup and homemade bread, my favourite. xo
