Well our holidays are over and done with for another 11 weeks and they were a strange mix of wet and dry, hot and cold weather. Here we are still sporting summer clothes in the middle of winter. I thought a break from the usual routine would see lots of loose ends tied up but this didn't occur. Things have meandered along at a pleasant pace, we've enjoyed the winter sun, trimmed trees, gardened, slept in (kids not the parents), watched a few movies, explored a demo yard and worked on the Reno cottage. I couldn't remember if I'd already read Kidnapped, so I devoured that overnight. Something about reading of human hardships in the chill of winter that makes the weariness all the more acute.
My MIL said she would send these casement windows to the dump, rather than buy them and bring them home.
He better not find out I took this pic.
We also took a Sunday drive to the top of the mountains (Maleny) to see the muscle car show. I didn't take my camera so these are Hubby's pics. He had a good drool over his favourites and the boys say they need to add a few to the dream list. There were lots of Mustangs (left hand steered), Fords, Holdens, Caddies, Chevies and Vals (Mr CH's favourite), Toranas (my fav) and even a Grand Torino. Gorgeous paint choices, we loved the old Holden utes. Makes you cringe at how boring cars colours are now days.
Leave you with a pic or two of one of our Iboza's in flower. The smell is heady and the flowers divine.
Hope you too enjoyed the school break or are about to (New Zealand Mums).
