Hiding from the Heat

Along with the rest of the country we have had some over 40 days here during the last week - (the last 2 days have been lovely at just over 30 degrees) so there is only one thing to do and that is hibernate inside under the cooler!! Not actually hibernating, just escaping - we have been on a cleaning binge - so not many photo opportunities there.

The preserving continues - tomatoes are getting sunburnt so I will be picking them green to make pickles - then I will be buying from a local farmer (whose tomatoes don't get sunburnt for some reason) - will still let some ripen for our meals.

Our chooks have continued laying despite the heat - so yesterday afternoon was a cook up. Lunches for a couple of days!! 

It is nice to be able to go to the fridge and just get something out to heat up and throw some lettuce and tomato together and there is a meal!

Karah has been home all week after spending Christmas with her dad. She went to a friends place on the weekend and came home with a yummy cake they had made - lovely with a cup of coffee after dinner last night.

She is not one to nurse newborn babies but we did manage to get her to hold Hope long enough to take a photo!

No sewing this week - a lot of cutting out and prep work done though. This is the beginning of some secret sewing. Hope to have it finished in the next couple of days and into the mail for valentines day!!

That is just about it for me  this post - a week of finishing off cleaning out rooms, some sewing and prtobably some more preserving!! What are you all up to this week??


  1. I see we are both in the preserving space ....... nice work on getting the valentine swap started ..... I've also made a bit of a start on it. Good luck with the cleaning this week!

  2. Your preserving looks fantastic Kerrie, our tomatoes are just ripening, the plums are nearly there, the rainbow lorikeets are hanging around so I guess they know there is food on offer. Good to have the lunches ready to go like that. No fun cleaning in the hot weather.
