These are some of the things which were happening in my kitchen this morning.
Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos gathering outside the window. There are so many around here at the moment!
2 little boys waving good-bye to their Papa. One of them is wearing a cape. Did you know, he's actually Superman this week?
A big bread-baking session (destined to be a Monday tradition, I'm thinking....) - a huge loaf of wholemeal, soft rolls for lunch, and my first-ever attempt at a loaf of 'Fruit Bread' - it worked!
I just added a teaspoon of oil to the dough on second kneading, plus sultanas and cinnamon - and cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on the top.
My little girl working hard in her Nature Notebook. We will be looking at spiders this week and this morning began with a long spontaneous search in the garage- and the subsequent discovery of an interesting Daddy Long-Legs spider. Lots of observing and reading and thinking and drawing followed.
Now everyone is resting and I'm gearing up for the afternoon activities. Grocery shopping, unpacking etc., dinner preparations - and taking the children to see baby Laura and so I can give Cathy a great big at-home hug!
