How to peel an orange

Conversely, how not to peel an orange. It's a little like she peeled it with a hammer.

A Baker

A pleasant distraction while the other side of the world slept. Balloons, bike rides and bubbles at A Baker.

Making olives

Next to Olive's house, out the back, is a big olive tree. It was heavy with fruit this year and the ladder was pulled out and the first lot picked the weekend we said goodbye to Barney. Or maybe that was when we picked the last lot? I can't remember now, because goodness knows a lot has happened in those few months. 

Some cured in salt, some soaked in brine and while the salt ones are too salty, they still go well with wine.

This time last week...

Sunsets on planes. A thing of beauty.

Spring Saturday of fun

Amazing how following a drain can lead to adventures of paddle boating, sculpture sighting, go go fruit eating and more. The mall rats turn into drain rats: my partner in crime - the girl who lives in the Chinatown Treehouse.
