Lazy and slow...

I had a lovely slow weekend just gone. I spent the end of the week home alone as Gus had gone to Sydney on business. I picked him up from the airport on Saturday morning...
When you don't have to cook a proper meal, I favour easy things like 'breakfast for dinner' or "Brinner"...
Fry some bacon and an egg, toast some bread. Assemble and add hot Worcestershire sauce...
Serve on a pretty plate - Brinner is ready!
I took this picture of my Soul Sister rose at about 7am...
This is the same rose later in the day at 4.30pm. Amazing!
Saturday morning, sitting in bed, coffee and my iPad...
After picking up Gus, I spent the afternoon knitting and later had a wine while watching Sleepless in Seattle. I'm loving my Netflix subscription!
I finished the dishcloth. It's called Berry Basket Weave...
It gives a different pattern on the reverse side...
Yesterday, I got stuck into my strip blanket. I hadn't done any of it for so long. I knit from the red section, see the arrow, all the way up to those stripes. This strip is nearly completed. I am determined to finish this rug!
Back to Saturday night...we made pizzas in the Weber using the barbecue box that we gave Gus for Christmas.
First up, potato, parmesan, garlic and rosemary...
The second, basically a supreme with the works!
And the last one, a barbecue sauce supreme. Only one piece was eaten then the rest put into the fridge.
The mornings are getting crisp here and we even had fog this morning...
The forecast says its going to be 31C, even after the cool morning and it will continue to be hot all week. Not looking forward to that!
i hope you had a nice, restful weekend.
Cheers - Joolz xx


  1. Never knock a good bacon and egg toasty - it is good fare in my books. I love those sepia roses too - very special.

  2. You have me drooling for the bacon and egg toasty and pizzas....they look so delicious. That is a beautiful rose colour. I'm loving Netflix too, not that I watch a lot, but enjoy relaxing on the weekend and taking in an episode or two of certain series. Loving Velvet at the moment, even though it's in Spanish and I have to read the get used of it!!!

  3. How will I ever lose weight if I keep reading your blog? You always manage to make me ravenous! :) The simple brinner and those gorgeous artisan pizzas both make my mouth water.

    I got a lovely card in the mail today! Such a treat to get a real letter, and the tea bags smell divine! I love chai. Truth be told I enjoy it cold, sweet and with milk, and with a splash of vodka. Haven't done that in a long time, but it may be in my near future. :)

    1. I snorted when I read you put Vodka in your chai tea! :)

  4. Might have to invest in one of those bbq boxes for our weber, those pizza look yum.
    The colour of that rose in beautiful but it does change quickly,
    I'm loving Netflix too and it is so much easier to catch up on tv shows I don't get time to watch through the week.
    The cooler weather is here too and it is great to not be sweating.

    1. It is really good! Yes, I can't wait for autumn to set in!
