These yummy waffles certainly hit the spot after a very busy week. Camerons' QCS tests and a busy week for Alexandra with school musical final rehearsals and two performances and then her tap dancing exam today.
I had a lovely afternoon in the garden, just pulling weeds and turning over the soil before I put some more mulch on tomorrow. The new vege/herb patch is taking shape and the man will be back early next week to do the finishing touches. Can't wait!
So nice just enjoying being at home this afternoon.
I must say though, the pic above is not the serve I consumed - I only had half that amount - BJ enjoyed the one above!

The next project in the garden began today. As we built our house on stumps (posts) due to the land being on the side of a hill we don't have any "flat" places as such. Down towards the back of the block near where Scoot and the Henny Pennies live we decided to have another spot cut and retained. This is to become the Vege/Herb and cutting garden!! Well, that's the plan!! I am sure we will be able to make it look really lovely.
So, the man with his "bobcat" came and dug the holes and got started today. Quite awhile ago I purchased a pile of old fencing/gate pieces at a farm auction. (Much to the dismay of my Father who had to take them home to his place while we built the house!) The plan is to fence around the edge of this levelled area and install another find of mine, an old garden gate (of course the men of the family continue to shake their heads!) Wisteria is planned to grow on this little fence. I also have an old set of cement laundry tubs in this area - I am not sure what to grow in them yet. I have seen roses in tubs but maybe some herbs might be nice. I have wanted to grow herbs ever since I was a teenager and have never really had a suitable spot to do so. Maybe here is my chance.
Further to the plan is boxed raised beds with gravel paths in between. Mitchell is quite interested in growing veges too, so hopefully he will also enjoy the process of putting this all together.
It is so exciting to have some more new projects on the go.
