Relaxing and taking it easy is the only way to enjoy these beautiful hot summer days and nights we are having.  Friday night saw us enjoying dinner and wine outside with friends, Saturday, I took it easy and finished the Shirt Quilt, then read a book.   Sunday was pretty cruisy too. I keep thinking I should be making chutney and pickles with the surplus vegetables from my garden, but it is far to hot to stand in the kitchen.
  • loving all the colourful flowers in my garden
  • a little girly sewing and quilting
  • late afternoon/early evening at Maraetai - where The Scout and I enjoyed fish and chips on the beach for dinner
What did you enjoy this weekend?


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. The flowers are delightful and fish and chips on the beach amazing. The winds here at the moment are quite destructive so its a matter of staying in and keeping warm.
