not about the rain

If I hadn't decided not to write another blog entry about the revolting weather we're having this year I might tell you about the towel I threw away because it had gone mildewy before it got dry, or the revolting slurry in the bottom of the chook cage that I keep throwing bucketfuls of sawdust on to sop up, or even the lawn that's developed a funghi colony, a number of puddles and a certain jungle like quality due to the fabulous growing conditions and consequently abysmal cutting conditions or perhaps I'd wax lyrical on the futility of picking rye one seed head at a time as the whole field has fallen over and is not only going mouldy but is now sprouting as well. We can't use one machine once it's fallen over and can't use the other machine until it's dry. That means at the moment we can't use either machine and with it all sprouting and moulding we don't have the luxury of waiting for the break in the weather that surely must come sometime so we're picking by blooming hand!!

Phew, lucky I'm not talking about the weather or that would be a pretty moany post, hey?

So, what can I talk about. Aaahhh.... Ummmmmmmm....

Just kidding.


Here's some sunshine in a bowl. True fusion food. Red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, red peppers, yellow peppers, green peppers, okra and basil over somen. K and the girls has it with regular noodle soup base and I had it with balsamic vinegar and pepper. Mmm yum. Amy called it 'rainbow noodles.'


A rare picture of Meg showing off the hole in her smile. She is still waiting for her front teeth to come in. Poor thing, corn on the cob season and she can't bite anything...


Evidence for my theory that there is a set amount of energy allotted to each family. The bouncier and more energetic the kids are, the more haggard and worn out the mum... Oh and I was going out for dinner with friends who suddenly said 'Hey! Let's all wear yukata!' Aggghhh yeah....


Just hanging out at Summer Day Camp. It was held in a park with a beautiful rose garden. M was incredibly unimpressed that it dare call itself a park when it had not a single piece of play equipment. Well not a piece other than these 'swings' Amy found...

Phew, wasn't that better than talking about rain and the fact we have the fire on in mid summer just to try and dry out the house and-

You don't look the least bit tired or worn down in your picture! I have to agree with your theory though. The more my daughter gets rambunctious and "genki" (what an understatement!) the more I feel like I might just pass out cold on the floor. Wake me up when she's done!
