Beautiful Autumn Day!

Today was a busy and freezing cold Autumn day!

This morning Mandrake and I took the girls to the library to hear a visiting New Zealand author (Melanie Drewery) read some of her books. Quite a neat experience, with burst of action songs in between books to keep the little ones busy. I was amazed during a question time that it took 13 applications to different publishers until her first book was finally published! Wow - persistance pays off.


The rest of the day was filled with baking, inbetween keeping the girls busy... baking two loaves of wholemeal bread, one large chocolate cake (for a friend who is under the weather at the mo) and some chocolate chip and banana muffins! Yum!

Before tea, we decided to feed the eels (that live in the creek running through our property) some leftover meat from last nights tea, and then the kiddies decided to play in the autumn leaves. It hit me then how beautiful Autumn really is... the crisp air, crunchy brown leaves, warm fires, hot drinks... mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I love Autumn!

p.s. and I also love Robert Harris "Cookies'n Cream" plunger coffee!

    I'm loving the trees full of green leaves and the flowers which are popping up everywhere. *grin*
