Hello friends, it has been a while. We have been without a serious computer for the last week or so which in some ways has simplified life. However, eventually there are always bills to pay, emails to respond to and online business to take care of. So, we sent our incredibly dusty and apparently malware infested hard drive off to a reliable backyard computer wizard in town and hoped that one day it would return, intact.
I have missed plugging my camera in and looking over my photos and I have really missed blogging. Not necessarily my own blog but all the blogs I like to keep up with. For a while it felt like some of my friends were missing from my life. Thankfully, I know a few dedicated bloggers and I know you are all still out there.
While that dusty old hard drive left a gaping hole under our desk, life went only fairly normally. In our world there are a few things that still operate without passwords, sms security codes or dreaded malware infections.
Kids, cattle and horses. Of course, kids love technology but they also manage quite well without it, amazingly!
Bread, there is always bread.
My snake beans have been so productive but when I harvest them it is always a battle between the ants and I.
The eggplants are also prolific, as are the weeds when I inspect this photo more closely.
This giant sunflower reached for the sky and produced a plate sized flower. Now is has bowed its weighty head as the seeds start to dry off.
Dill flowers have lived happily tangled under my quince trees all through the summer and they just make me smile.
Autumn is on the horizon and so are the quinces.
Perhaps some cooking might be on your horizon? In the latest issue of Graziher you will find some of my autumn cooking creations including quince scrolls.
Blogging forces me to collate my thoughts as well as my photos and it feels good to be back.
Are you growing, baking or perhaps taking off after a mob of cattle on your trusty horse?
Wishing you a weekend full of the good things.
