A birthday & the long weekend.

Sunday, January 27, 2008

So whats been happening around here? It’s been raining like crazy for what feels like weeks. The garden is shedding it’s flowers and fronds, thus the car looks like it’s been to a Bombay wedding.


We had the birthday of the special Daddy that lives in our house. Happy Birthday John!

It was a nice day made even nicer by a mama & Ruby made delight. After an afternoon in the kitchen together, this Gluten-free Orange cake was delivered to the ever gracious stomach of John.


Happy Birthday to you.


The feasting has begun.

Preggo yoga has started up again for the year which is wonderful but in this heat it’s really quite tedious. We had several women hitting the deck and getting down into child’s pose throughout the class due to heat, dizziness and what have you. It really is quite hard to do the Sun salutation when the room is whirling and you’re balance is already well off (thanks bub).

Bored of bread and the usual lunches Ruby & I decided to go in for a spot of vego sushi making. Great fun and terribly easy. Ruby was a natural sushi chef and it was delicious, even John (who is usually fairly frightened of seaweed) is converted!


Ruby spreads the rice.


Helping out.


Choosing her ingredients.


The master of the roll.


Mmmmm. Yum.

We didn’t really do much Australia Day celebrating. I watched “10 canoes” on SBS. John went to work and I tried to sleep while drunken buffoons lurched and yelled their heads of while walking past our house at all hours of the night and morning. Queenslanders seem to be very patriotic on this day but without being too political, I’m not that sure about the whole thing. For me it’s very nice to have four days off!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. I’m off to play trains and day dream about being pregnant in Winter.
