a simple little thing

Well hello!

For anyone who got in and made yesterday's lemon slice (or who may have printed off the recipe already) PLEASE NOTE there were two critical typos. First, the number of eggs. Second, the volume of flour. Fixed now. These things discovered after three (so far) readers emailed me after the first version of the slice failed. 

I'm really very sorry! And I promise to be super diligent about checking recipes in the future. Truly. I don't want you to mistrust my recipes, mostly they are quadrupled tested and meticulously checked. I'll be more diligent from now on.

And that's enough about that. 

I'm trying to keep things simple, right now. Inflate the lungs. Take an easy path. Enjoy small things. 

Like baby wraps on the line. Ready to be repurposed. Baby shirts?

Hilarious curly tails.

The discovery of two of the three missing hens roosting in next door's hen house. Happy chooks.

Watching the goslings double in size from day to day.

And look back there! Remember the grey goose who nested at our place? Her chicks have hatched!

It's an awesome Big Love Mormon goose moment over here. Go, gander.

And a finished much-asked-for headscarf. Which took about fifteen minutes to make, without exaggeration. (With a baby in the backpack, oh yes!) It's a triangle, edges folded twice and pressed, and a zigzag stich. For a happy precious four year old who has been awesome with her poorly wee sister and gentle and lovely with her under-the-weather older brother.

Oh BTW, wherever did you find the adorable picture on your masthead? I would love to have a copy, but can’t find it on the internet. Help!

Thanks Melanie, I adore it too! It was actually drawn for me by the amazing Cassandra Allen, illustrator extraordinaire. You can find here over here: http://cassandraallen.com/

Life happens regarding the writing of recipes. Lets face it I have been known to have a correctly written recipe and still managed to miss vital ingredients…sigh. Love the photos – such a stunning part of the world you live in and your little girl is just gorgeous.

Those pigs are looking so so cute!

I think the baby wraps would make lovely long-sleeved summer baby shirts.

I’m itching to jump in my van and come and visit you. I’m crossing my fingers I can find some time in December for a trip down the coast.

The headscarf is really cute on your daughter. I’d love to be able to pull off wearing a headscarf but when I’ve tried them on before I always look like a member of a doomsday cult.

I’m loving those little pigs of yours. They look like they are growing fast!
