Lately I seem to have been doing a lot of cooking and baking. Some of it's due to the fact that we are on a strict budget right now so any baking is certainly going to help but I have to say that I'm thoroughly enjoying cooking up a storm.

The evening was a different matter. My birthday seemed all about food for some reason but that's ok because I'm very fond of food, good food, yummy food and sharing food. My uncle came over for dinner and so I didn't have to cook as he ordered pizza for us.
I have been really wanting Oysters Kilpatrick lately so I decided my birthday was the perfect day to treat myself. An entree of oysters, pizza for mains, then cake for dessert. Not just any cake, it has to be butterfly cakes because that's what I've been wanting rather than plain old cupcakes.

When I've got a bit more time I'll either transfer the photos to this computer or try and find out what's going on with my laptop. Right now I'm looking after Master M and Nephew R (both 3) and they're very excited about playing together, not that it takes much to get these two excited.
Until the next post when I hope everything will be back to normal.
Also a get well message for my sister Sandra from Hearts Landscapes which you can access from my side bar. She's been in hospital with pneumonia for the last week and is very slowly on the mend. Love you possum.
Love Susan xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

...and then looking the other way down the creek towards where my brother lives.
Paddling around the monstrosity of a boat that has sunk in the middle of the creek I was amused to find a For Sale sign on the boat. Hmmm.. not sure if they'll have too many offers for this.
Looking back to the bank of the creek where the kids were playing and the dad's were getting the fishing gear ready.
Uncle G decided it would be a better day if he went back home and got the boat so off he drove just down the road to his house, launched the boat in the creek out the back and putted back up to where we were. How much fun was it for all the kidlettes to be in the boat. My kidlettes had never actually been in a boat before, only the kayak so it was the highlight for them.
Of course Little Miss R really wanted to catch a fish so she had a go off the bank, then sat in the back of the kayak desperately wanting a fish to hop on her line. Just after our yummy picnic lunch, Daddy took her back out in the kayak and I'm so very proud to say that she caught her first ever fish!!!! The excitement of it and the joy on her face was delightful.
As for me, once all the big boys and the kidlettes were all occupied in boats, I realised that I had some rare time to myself. What to do? A cup of coffee beside the bank of the creek definately.....
...and of course some hooky time. I put my crochet basket in at the last minute, not because I thought I'd really get a chance to actually do any but something told me to bring it so I did. It was lovely to sit in the quiet beside the creek, hooking away and watching my family having fun out on the water.
