Knitting, Home and Walking

Bark

We went walking over the weekend and I spotted this beautiful tree bark, love the texture. Jen is back from Australia and Erin’s back from PLTU scout camp. It’s good to have everyone home again. We’ve started off our school journey again, only three schooling now, Jen is off to university next month, I’m SO excited for her!!

Richard came home with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for me, I really adore these beautiful surprises!

Hat

I’ve started a new hat design, I think it should be a knit-along. I’m knitting in Mama Jude’s naturally dyed worsted yarn, too beautiful!! I’m enjoying the pattern so far.

Lou and Charlie

At last, Lou and Charlie are friends, Lou is such a lovely addition to our fur-baby family, he’s so full of energy and loves being around people.

New Year Walk

Happy New Year!! I wish you all the very best for 2016 :)

We’ve had a lovely relaxing start to our year, we braaied for lunch, swam and went for a walk down to the lake. It was good to get out into the fresh air…

It’s just the boys and Richard and myself at home for the next 10-12 days. Jenna’s in Australia visiting friends and Erin left for her Scout PLTU leadership camp early this morning. It seems SO quiet here at the moment!

Jen also got her matric results a few days ago and she passed her IEB exams with university entrance! Not bad for a homeschooler, hey? I’m incredibly proud of her, what an achievement! She’s worked so hard and if she’s learned anything from her homeschooling journey, it’s how to become an independent learner, which I feel will benefit her greatly when she embarks on her university career.

Grass Green

I just had to take this shot, love this rich green!

The Rain is Here!

Sunflower

Hello!

We’ve been so busy with exams etc… that I haven’t had much time to pop in here to post about what we been up to, so I thought I’d share a little of what’s been happening. This beautiful sunflower self-seeded and popped up in our little garden by our front door, it makes me happy each time I see it!

Lou

We have a new family member! Meet Lou, we thought she was a she but today we discovered she is actually a he! He is the cutest little guy, very active and quite mischievous indeed! So far we’ve introduced him to Olive and she seems to tolerate him but our other cat Charlie is not interested in a new family member at all. We’ll have to give him some time to get used to Lou.

Lunch

Lunch!

Veggies

Our veggie garden growing just outside my kitchen, it’s worked so well, the birds haven’t touched our spinach for the first time ever! Yay!

Pepper

I’m so proud of this pepper, it’s absolutely huge and bi-coloured!

Roman

We all attended a Roman themed party on Saturday night, it was such fun to dress up!

Squash

These Souties Squash also self-seeded in the front garden along with the Sunflower, I can’t wait to taste them! (the squash that is!)

Storm

We have been experiencing the most terrific thunderstorms this week! It literally hasn’t rained for weeks and now, the rain seems to be here!! Thank goodness, my poor garden is saved :)
