...of our holidays,
and here are some highlights...
Picking loads of raspberries and making jam.
We have also been baking our own
bread and having fresh jam
on our bread...enough to make your mouth water
We had out first lot of visitors and we had an awesome
day at this beach which is only 7 min from our home.
I took the kids and my nephew to this beautiful swimming lagoon.
This beach is on the other side of the lagoon
Snapping myself again! :)
We eat lots of popcorn, not normally packet ones, we now
own our own popcorn maker...it's gorgeous!
My gorgeous hubby took the kids out on a bush hike...
...and a BBQ...
...and to see the HUGE whale washed up on one of the beaches.
Life is good at the beach
Besides hanging down the beach we have had
5 reverse cycle air conditioners installed upstairs,
roller blinds put in all 5 bedrooms,
(which my clever husband installed himself)
plasterers finishing some work on our ceiling,
and we now have our certificate of occupancy after starting this
project in 2005.
Gracie & I finally finished Blinky Bill, and we have been
reading lots of Christmas literature.
I finished The Help a couple of weeks ago,
and found the story line was very realistic,
which makes it sad yet there is incredible humor.
I could not put this book down.
I am now reading Leota's Garden
Isn't it just wonderful to have a break, a little breather
from the intensity of homeschooling.
