Isn't my big girl growing up? She so desperately wants to be older than she is, while I (of course) want her to stay little for ever. Look at those green eyes - enormous.
I got quite a lot done on this while I was at the hairdressers today. It struck me that sometimes even grey hairs have a silver lining. More grey hairs means more knitting time. Seriously though, most of my knitting time each week is squeezed into karate, kid's appointments and time spent waiting so I am really glad to have the opportunity to knit!
Our plums have had a bumper crop this year - laden, the branches sinking low to the ground. We have had plum jam, stewed plums, dehydrated plums, and now, thanks to www.foxslane.blogspot.com plum cake. This http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/16131/upside+down+plum+cake has fast become my new favourite cake, not the least because it generally leaves a few little crusty, plummy bits around the side of the tin for the cook to eat while it is still steaming and oozey. So good. Today, I made two of them and because I was home alone I even got to lick the beaters. Life is good my friends, very, very good, and for the simple things I am profoundly grateful.
