The following day we were treated to an unexpected snow shower on our way home from the market. It's been a few years since we've seen snow in our parts - this was a real surprise! Other people were out capturing the moment too..
A true delight for our visitor! The last time she had seen snow was back in Europe quite a number of years ago..
Wonderful stories of a fascinating life to listen to, worthy of a book in my opinion.
The sourdough has been bubbling away, with the kitchen being the ideal temperature for it to be sitting out on the bench (so I can remember to feed it!)..
Not much is coming in from the garden at the moment unless you count silverbeet and eggs!
This particular night is was large pasta shells stuffed with ricotta, parmesan and spinach (silverbeet), baked in a garlic-y passata and topped with more parmesan..
The clean fleece was just begging to be dried near the fire, on a rack mind you to keep the ancient cat from making herself too comfortable on it..
..and was later carded on the drum carder which is (still!) on loan from spinning group..
An exciting event during the week- our 'local' has opened back up again after too many years standing empty. A lovely cosy place on the mountain to head for a meal on a chilly winter's night. It also helped that the desserts were sensational!
Soggy paddocks seem to be everywhere at the moment, which is somewhat of a comfort. It's not just our place that is under water!
Glorious sunshine making an appearance after being too long in hiding.
Bring on the winter bulbs and some drying winds please!
I hope your week was enjoyable. x
