Can you tell that someone was totally over the photo shoot? Little rascal!
Meet Tonka. He is our new twelve week old Chocolate Labrador. Full of mischief and sometimes I honestly think ‘why in the world did we do this?’ and then other times, usually when he is asleep, I am so glad that we did.
Not all teens are bad. This one has been a superstar in the past few weeks. She has been so loyal to her friends in need and I am just so proud of the awesome young lady she is turning out to be.
Paige’s Snap Dragons are growing finally! Her garden box is filled with a multitude of pink flowers. Let’s see how long they will last with the pup exploring in the backyard!
Homemade Chilli Oil for when something needs spicing up. Great on pizzas, stirfries or pasta. Find the recipe here.
My roses. The blooms are slowing down as the nights get colder, but there is always enough for a few bunches each week.
Shell Stitch blanket. You can find a video tutorial here.
And last, but not least my Mr J. He has grown up so much in the past few weeks. He thinks he can do EVERYTHING that the big kids do. (Including writing with a pen..)
So, what have you been up to lately?
“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nore are there words, whose voice is not heard.” Psalm 19.. the first few verses.
“Stop the car. Check out that blossom!”
“If I pull over, can you take a photo of those leaves?”

Washing day. Nothing nicer than seeing your clean clothes hanging in front of a clear blue sky backdrop.
I told him to sit and stay.. He listened.
Chillies from the garden. Nice and spicy!
Korean bibimpap. Yum. #thatisall
Shani sent some colour love in the mail! Go check her out on Instagram here!
My week on Instagram.
Jacob, our little eight month old whirlwind!
Crawling, standing, climbing and cruising about in his walker.
Loving every meal and is quite keen on the ol’ bowl of custard.
Splashing in the bath and loving it when he drenches whoever is with him.
Sleeping through the night like a trooper, except in a tent of course.
Cutting down from three sleeps to two during the day.
Loves holding his own bottle, in his own tight fist clenched way.
Head wobbles and claps when someone sings him a song.
Drops his bottom lip like a pro when he hears the word “No.”
Loves seeing his siblings after their day at school. You wouldn’t be able to wipe that smile off his face, even if you tried.
You make our life busier, but so much fuller.
Four more months and you will be one.
