Hello. How are you all? All well here. I took a week off last week but decided not to go anywhere because where I live is a permanent vacation. We’ve been living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast for just under a year, but haven’t had much time to explore due to having to work – quite annoying. After I’d got over the need to declutter and organize everything, I spent my week off going to the beach
Catching up on my reading
watching canoes drift by
napping every afternoon and generally relaxing. It was bliss.
Our vegetable garden has given us lovely beans and peas for the last 3 weeks. Home-grown vegetables are a taste that I just cannot describe, but it makes me hope I never have to go back to store-bought vegetables again. Next year when we move our little temporary garden to a more permanent site, we’ll grow enough to freeze and eat all year round. In the meantime, we’re enjoying eating what we grow so much
We planted Broccoli and Swiss Chard to eat in the Fall and at the end of the month we’ll plant Brussels Sprouts and Garlic.
In between all this napping and relaxing at the beach, Lauren (my niece) and Simon got married in a lovely civil service in London. They’ll be flying to South Africa for a small wedding with the family.
I lucked out at a flea market and found a white wicker love seat that I’ve been looking to get my hands on for so many years I’ve lost count. Isn’t she lovely?
It was scorchingly (is that a word?) hot and humid here and I spent many happy hours in this lovely, shady spot reading.
I ended off my little staycation with a barbecue/party on Saturday night
and a visit from friends and a bike ride on Sunday
Just before our ride, a visit to the beach
Talk to you soon
