Lazing in the sun today

Well not me exactly.....guess who?

Although I did sit down to relax a few times...! So nice to enjoy the sun and lack of wind in the middle of winter.

Spent the day tidying up a lot of gardening 'stuff' (seedlings and planters mainly) and moving it from where it was to where the potting shed will go.

We are also getting some earthworks done which is great, widening the drive, putting in drainage and repairing the surface. It's been sometime since we had the driveway formed (from grazing land) and there's been a certain amount of wear and tear since then. Here are some then and now shots.



Still a bit more work to go before it's done.

Homemade doggie biscuits

Sharing a couple of easy recipes for homemade doggie biscuits. Cute and healthy treats for the wee pooch.
She loves them. I want to get a bone shaped cookie cutter! Still tiny hearts and paw print rounds are cute enough eh!

The yellow ones are made with pumpkin puree (or you can use babyfood for ease) organic brown rice flour and egg. The darker ones are made from organic buckwheat flour, peanut butter, mashed banana, ground flax seed and rice milk. Loads of recipes on Pinterest. Basically mix all ingredients to make a dough, roll out and cut out shapes, then bake in the oven.

Little Roxy sure enjoys them..

Frosty weather over the weekend

Just sharing a few photos from over the weekend. Here in the "winterless north' we don't usually have many frosts and they aren't usually very heavy. This weekend however, we had 3 in a row and they were very heavy. It was cold! Yes I know if you are further south in NZ it was REALLY cold. We just aren't used to it here!
