Happenings around here...

Oh man, I'm having trouble blogging still!  Everytime I get my pictures uploaded, I've used the wrong blog and they end up on the Camping Adventures blog!  Grrr!! 
~

Anyhow, here are a few pics of my garden from a week or so back.  Things were looking lovely...

Then we've had a bout of stormy weather with strong winds and rain and...nearly every rose has been blown off its bush!
~
What do you put in your salads?  I get sick of the same old salad veg so have been putting
a bit of fruit in.  This one has mango and watermelon added to it.  Sometimes I've put strawberries in and its lovely!
~
Beautiful Atlantic salmon...
~
~
I found a treasure in the back of my pantry!  Half of last years Christmas cake - it has matured beautifully and is delicious...
~


I had a bit of a flop with my EasiYo - I tried only using half a packet of mix and halving the water to 500 mls but it came out very runny.  Will try again soon with a full packet and a little less water.
~
My standard roses are in full bloom and nearly keeling over...
~
I have made another Christmas cake - I might put half away to find in the back of the pantry next year!
~
~
I headed to Adelaide on Monday to see the girls...such a beautiful sunset that night!
~
The Jacarandas are in full bloom and everywhere there are purply-mauve carpets...
~


Bri and I went to see the movie Trolls in the morning...
~
Then Tuesday night we went to see Keith Urban...
~
Carrie Underwood was his support act - she was fantastic!
~
Keith was very good too but a lot more 'rocky' than country I thought...
~

Selfie with my girly...that's a shadow in my face, weird!
~
I got some Christmas shopping done before I came home on Wednesday...

  1. How annoying that you are still having trouble with your blog posts...hope it gets sorted soon. I love the colours of your roses, so pretty. I hope you cut some and enjoy them inside. How nice to find a surprise cake in your pantry...I can taste the richness of it now...I want some..haha!! I get bored with my salads too. My standard salad is lettuce, tomato, cucumber, olives, feta and capsicum then I squeeze lemon juice and a splash of olive oil into it. I usually cut up some avocado to and put on mine, hubby doesn't like avocados.

  3. Hello Joolz, I pop over occasionally to catch up on your lovely cooking ideas but have been absent for a year.
    I'm going to try adding fruit to salad, I like that idea.
    The fruit cake looks sumptuously rich.
    Adding a little bit less water to the easiyo mix is how I do my yoghurt.
    Cheerio now and thank you for all your inspirations throughout the year :D)
