Golden Afternoons

Its been a big week! My littlest owlet managed to scratch my eyeball before the weekend so I've been feeling a bit out of action. We still managed a trawl of garage sales and tip shops, some house painting and afternoon relaxing by the fire. The wather has ben just gorgeous so far this week. Lots of sun and a beautiful golden light, so we've spent the afternoons outdoors... In the garden, or the park - rolling down hills, through leaves, picking flowers, climbing the ladder to look at the view, watching lizards lounge on rocks, building cubbies and playing dressups... Today we bathed the bath toys (gave them a good scrub too)...


...and explored the garden patch, looking for hidden pumpkins in amongst the wild weedy mess of it all. We also found zucchinis, tomatoes, loads of herbs, lemons, carrots and potatoes going for a second round. The chooks are back to scratching up the place where the cabbages grew.


Yep, there's lots to do before the weather turns cold and we tuck the garden in for winter, but at the moment we are making the most of these golden afternoons...
