In our autumn here it all comes by the dozen...
(naked ladies also known as belladonna lilies)
It only occurred to me recently that you could, in fact, cut the top off one & scoop it out rather than cut in half & have half the juice escape. I love eating passionfruit just with a spoon or sometimes squeezing them straight in to my mouth...oh heaven. Do tell me how you like to eat passionfruit the most.
I have found a few sweet greengage plums this week & one or two black boy peaches. I had forgotten how exceptionally hairy that they are, the peaches...I almost want to pat them!
I suppose if all your laundry was ugly it wouldn't look particularly enchanting..Nanna pants & blokes trousers, holey old rags don't have quite the same appeal, but the Marks & Spencer cardi I found at the Op Shop will do just fine.
I have come to love pressed & depression glass & discovered Carnival glass a while back..the sparkly, colourful cousins of the glass department, but I had never seen anything Carnival glass in pink before so when this bowl came up on Trade Me I bought it.
Isn't it so pretty?
I am learning that it is so easy to be frustrated that we do not know more right now, but if we practice & we keep at it, some day, one day, we might actually have the skills to do a good job.
Rob has worked so hard at repairing our home & he is doing a marvelous job & loving it & feeling proud of himself to be able to draw on some really useful skills & some assertive brain power & is making good use of a lovely yellow crayon.
I have had a lovely visit with my boy.. & a hug.. & plied him with risotto & rockmelon, filled his back pack with fruit & watched him cycle off, with a much more settled maternal heart. Thank you so much for your concern & prayers on that one. It's not aways easy making our way in the world is it?
Have a wonderful week dear ones.
