My weekend

My weekend was a full weekend. A happy weekend, a shiny, sweet strawberry kind of weekend.

We had tart tartin, made by my gorgeous Honey.  It was pretty yummy, oh boy!
Kate, Pepper & Jazzy popped in, so fun to have the girls together & to chat with Kate.
Rosie & Pepper found a caterpillar, Betty, who has since
spun herself a cocoon. I wonder what Rosie will be 
taking for show & tell on Thursday?

We went to the very lovely Dharma school autumn equinox fair where the girls had their faces painted like butterflies and unicorns. We saw the Foxs Lane family, swapped clothes & bunnies, got sunburnt, chatted with friends and had fun. 

At home I collected quinces and added the making of quince jelly to my long, long mental list. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

I washed & hung out piles of clothes and worked out I wash 42 pairs of undies every week.
It's a good thing I don't mind doing laundry! 

We went for a walk, passing Jack's painted door on the way.

Where black cockatoo's soar over Wombat HIll.

 And came home to find eggs were hatching..

and now we have baby ducks!!

It's so exciting, wow! There are three yellow and three browny coloured babies, all so cute! Mad Freddie has been such a good fella and had been very attentive to his partner. And Mumma is so protective of her babies, she doesn't like us to get too close. Babies all around us at the moment, just lovely.

Today I'm sitting in the chaos left from a busy weekend, dishes, clothes, toys, guitars, newsletters, Barbie shoes, sewing, know what it's like! But I'm feeling good and so happy at the start of this new week. A storm is brewing outside and I think it's going to rain all week but life is good and I'm feeling lucky & smiily today, hope you are too. See you soon xo

Sounds like a delicious weekend ( like the tart tartin)
full of all the best stuff.
Cannot belive 42 undies though! xo

WoW that's a lot of undies ;o)
Your weekend looks fabulous Beck. Ours was great too. Hubby and I were able to have a weekend to ourselves as the girls are away with the grandparents. Lovely weather here now and was really great. Your duckies are adorable!

Sue said...

My goodness that is a lot of undies, I only have to wash about half that, hmmm 28! Your baby ducklings look so gorgeous and fluffy, it is nice to have babies around of any sort isnt it! Hope Freddie is enjoying being a daddy duck too. Have a wonderful week Beck!

Phew that was a busy weekend! Glad to hear you had loads of fun.

Aren't baby ducklings so gorgeous? They make excellent pets for children too!

I remember wash days with lots of undies, but sadly those times have passed now that my fledglings have flown the nest. Treasure these moments as time passes very quickly...

Have a great day,

Fun weekend that is. Food, sun and bonding, a perfect way to stretch out one's stressed soul. Ducklings are cute.

Hey Beck, what a lovely post. A weekend choc full of wonderful events.

Tarte Tatin, haven't made one for ages, better stop cooking the apples for the freezer and make dessert.....
