WOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dearest Mom and Dad
KAN JY DIT GLOOI??????? We made it.....................
SO while I was kept busy over the last 3 months ...................too bloody busy..............


The dust collected everywhere...............


The veggies grew - and I overwatered some - like the cucumbers.............


the eggplants flourished.......................


Jane better like eggplants!


The cucumber plant..........


The washing pile grew...................I never seem to get it folded and put away.


The piles of stuff in my sewing room grew.


The last few days chocolate wine and tea - all at once sometimes - got me through.


At the end I managed to fit in a brunch with Jane.


We discovered these little silver salts that had no glass inners at an antique fair - I added some crushed walnut shells and felted wool - and we got the cutest little silver pincushions.


SO - this is what Vaughn and I "harvested" last night.


And so.......................


I made a vegetable lasagne (which I slightly overcooked) but it was delish.


Squash has not been well - I too her to the vet and it looks like she has arthritis in her back and hind legs. I love this little dog.

 
I am so pleased that you had a lovely weekend with Nunu.

Tough days

Dearest Mom and Dad
It was so lovely having Button here for a few days..................


With the first draft due date looming, it was not what I wanted but I really needed ...............


Button was like a breath of fresh air.......................


She took me away from my sewing room - where I have lived for the past 4 months............


We went vintage shopping and bought her a few really interesting bits and bobs. Here she is trying on a dress that I needed to alter.


I ate healthily for a few days........................A while back Button introduced me to Persian fetta - OH MY GOSH!


The veggie patch is going great guns..........


and I have learned to share my "crop" with all creatures great and small...........


Who knew that cucumber, eggplant and chillie had such lovely flowers?


I sort of understand why you enjoy gardening so much.


SO, in just a few more days, I will pack all this away and .................
 

...................and figure out what to do with the fabric I bought for the book and did not use..

 
All my love
Jenny
