- my gorgeous nephew, held by my dad, who is henceforth to be known as 'the baby hog'. We took advantage of free entry to the zoo as our town was so heavily smoke infested, and gathered up friends and family and went on Sunday, and I didn't get to hold the baby once! (Dad did point out that with my substantial bump it might have been tricky to hold him, but the chance would have been nice!)
-a turtle in the reptile house. I would dearly love a turtle. Or two. Or a couple of tortoise.
-the kids in the carousel at the zoo. There's something so magical about a carousel!
-a detail from the carousel.
-ferns at the Morwell National Park.
-Poppet running down steps at the Morwell National Park. The park smelt so good, moist and fresh and eucalypt-y. There was still no water in the stream under the bridge, but there was moss and ferns and moisture in the air and I took big welcome gulps of the air. Autumn seems to be on the way (finally!) so I have hopes that at our next visit there'll be at least a trickle in the stream.
-Making bread. Our first attempt and it was delicious!
-Cutting our bread. We used a Jamie Oliver recipe, but halved it. We also tried to make a sourdough culture last week… with um… not so wonderful results. Hopefully this week we'll perfect it.
