+ April is a beautiful time of year on the farm. The days are still warm enough to not need coats and beanies (unless you’re going for a motorbike ride), and the nights are cool enough to light the fire. The trees start changing colour, and our harvest is in full swing. What’s not to love about that???
+ I’m continuing to love using Lightroom to edit my photos. Before I got it, I used picasa, which was free, but limited. Of course, I have my eye on a new lens for the camera.
+ The kids all have a quilt made by my mother, but during winter they need an extra thick doona. I have never got around to buying doona covers, but over the holidays I finally did. I didn’t plan to get matching covers for the girls. I was just going to let them choose one each, but they chose the same one. Good thing they both have good taste. If only bunk beds weren’t such a pain to make! Also does anyone know if there is something you can clip into the inside corners of the cover and to the doona, so that they stay in the right place??? Please help a girl out!
+ The girls have discovered Deadly 60 on ABC3 at 7.30pm. They watch it once Toby is in bed, before they go themselves. It’s a bit of a cross between David Attenborough and Bear Grylls. Must admit I quite like it too.
+ We have unleashed our inner loomer these holidays. We stocked up on a loom and a few bags of bands when we were up in the mountains, only to find that we ran out of black bands super quickly. When we went to town last week, we looked in several stores for more black bands with no luck. What I did learn was that there is a sisterhood amongst mothers of loomers. I was looking in one shop, when at least three mothers sidled up to me to give me tips on where to find the best range. Seems Lincraft is THE place to get cool colours at a good price. Also they do scented loom bands – yes bands that smell like apple and berries. You’re welcome!
+ In a ‘better late than never’ type moment, we watched The Hunger Games during the holidays. Wow! I now need to read the books.
+ Over the holidays I spent some time in the eternal time sucker which is pinterest, collecting ‘inspiration’ for our house renovation. Granted the renovation isn’t imminent, but it’s fun to dream. You can see my boards here.
Have you been looming lately? Got a way to keep doonas in their doona covers properly? What have you been loving lately??
