At home...


Rhonda's basic muffins, from her book.  These ones have chopped apple in them...I also made some choc chip ones :)


 The latest blanket is coming along.

 I love the way this is turning out.

 A couple of crochet dishcloths for something different...


 Glorious rain!

 57mm or 2.28inches


We had some lovely visitors yesterday
Gavin and Sandra, a fellow blogger and member of the Down to Earth community called in on their way home from a road trip to Western Australia.

Love this old car...

It was wonderful to meet up.  We had so much to talk about, but needed more time...

And off they go...after six weeks on the road they were wanting to get home.

See ya...

 A beautiful rainbow appeared as Gavin and Sandra drove away :)

It has been a lovely week, and I hope yours has been the same :)

Blessings to you all,
