Not too much mess to clear up, swimming lessons for the kids going on. Two people were fishing from the reef into the lagoon, had a go at them but they didn’t stop. So many fish hooks have been found in the water that it won’t be long before someone really gets badly hurt. Weather warming up, 39º on 1.1.09. That’s hot!!
I made some bread today, recipe adapted from ‘rosemary damper’ as I added fresh tomato juice instead of water. Taste is excellent (could do with more rosemary & maybe add garlic) but it is more like a cake or scone.

The novel is mainly set in the farming communities of the south west of
The book also explores what it was like for the men who survived the war and returned home.

Two big kookaburras sitting on a wall, one with a chip & one with ****** all.
this morning & getting bigger.
Arrived today an email from Mr T. about
'The way to inner peace at Christmas..."
I am passing this because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in our lives.
Some doctor on the radio this morning said that the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started.
I looked around my house to see things I'd started and hadn't finished and before leaving the house this morning...
1. I finished off a bottle of Merlot,
2. I finished a bottle of shhhardonay,
3. a bodle of Baileys Irish something,
4. a butle of vocka,
5. the res of the Chesescke
6. an a box a chocolets.
Yu haf no idr how gud I fel.
Peas sen dis orn to dem yu fee ar in ned ov inr pece.

Suddenly the globe artichokes burst into flower just when I thought they would look really good dried. (See 1st pic on Nov 26th).
I am reading a Rosie Thomas book ‘Iris & Ruby’. Another excellent one. Quote: “Memory is not a recipe or a shopping list. Memory is the scent of clear water at an oasis, the brush of lips on naked skin, a plangent chord”.

Went to see Sue at Indian Ocean Gifts in Yanchep yesterday. So many items that were tempting, in the end I bought this cute little box to put my washing in. There were other things which I will show after Christmas.
This morning I had my first dip in the lagoon, many people were there as it is Abalone season. Where do they all come from? Most of them left just before 9o/c and it was back to a few locals, no doubt later today it will be packed again.
