Tea and Clover

Daisy and Home

Iced Coffee and Poppy

Clover and Dear Delilah Necklace

We have been hot. Very hot. We’ve had a string of days well over 40°C and it’s been pretty horrible in our old, uninsulated house, so we have spent a lot of time hibernating in our lounge room (which is the only room in our house with an airconditioner) and dreaming of autumn.

We have been eating homegrown cherry tomatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We have been thinking we need to plant a lemon tree.

We have been grateful that our little family has adjusted so well to our latest addition and have been so pleased to see Daisy and Clover quickly become great friends.

We have been watching Indiana Jones movies and series one and two of Call the Midwife. (Is there anything better than a BBC period drama?!)

We have been living on homemade pesto, feta, semi dried tomatoes and lemon cordial.

We have gotten a few little jobs done around the house. We finally got the old fluorescent lights in the lounge room replaced with nice pendants and we finished painting the hall. Now we are just wishing for some cooler weather so we can start painting the loungeroom!

We have been talking a lot about our big trip later this year. (So exciting!)

We have been hoping for rain…

Reuben has gotten a great new job, closer to home! (We are so grateful.)

Katie has been making lots of jewellery and birdie jars in prepation for The Square handmade market next Sunday and has been really busy with the Dear Delilah Etsy shop. (We are so grateful for that too!)

We have planted some elderberry and tea plants.

We have been playing with Katie’s mum’s adorable baby chicks. (We’re planning to bring a couple of these little ones to live with us when they’re older!)

We have been drinking a lot of fresh watermelon juice and banana smoothies and, thanks to a drama with our oven, have been eating a lot of stuff on toast.

Reuben has crocheted a ninja turtle for his nephew’s first birthday (he’s planning to share the pattern on Ravelry soon) and was featured in a Sydney Morning Herald article about men who craft!

Katie has found some lovely vintage sheets after a lengthy treasure drought. (Yay!)

We have eaten 8 homegrown strawberries.

We have been thinking a lot about this space. About us blogging. About blogging in general. About what it all means to us and what we want for our little corner of the internet. We haven’t figured it out yet, but we might be getting closer.

We hope all is well with you guys! What’s been happening in your world lately?

We’ve been eating a lot of pasta. (The carbs help ward off the cold!)

Reuben has finally written up the pattern for the Whale Shark iphone cosy he was working on last winter. (It’ll be on Ravelry soon!)

Katie has been making lots of new jewellery.

We’ve been thankful for winter sunshine.

We have been drinking lots of hot chocolate.

We have been really happy that we made the switch to homemade laundry detergent (it works a treat!)

We’ve been planning a day trip to the snow next month.

We’ve been thinking and talking about blogging, advertising and the role this little blog plays in our life. We’ll share a post on those thoughts soon.

We’ve had a few nice op-shop finds.

Katie and Daisy have been enjoying walks in the Autumn sunshine, with Katie’s mum and puppa Molly.

We’ve been feeling rather unmotivated about renovating projects…
