A Hedge of Plumbago.

I have never seen the flowers rise to the top so.

Anna's Sticky Soy Chicken.

This was so good. Originally from the Sydney Morning Herald, but tested by Anna, sent by her mum to me and enjoyed.

In a pyrex/china baking dish,

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tsp minced ginger

2 cloves garlic, crushed

Some chicken.

Mix first five ingredients gently in baking dish, add chicken pieces, marinate for a few hours in the fridge if you are organsied, turning once or twice.Bake 50 mins, turning half way through.Serve with steamed rice and veges, and spoon over the liquid from the baking dish.
The kitchen in the photo is from the Old Dairy that we stayed in a while ago in Bathurst.

Water Paints.

12 year old son had to make a visual representation from the book he was reading for English; he chose to draw this (in water colours) and then carefully wash over it with water.
"Across the Nightingale Floor" is set in Japan. There is lots of reference to the "ground moving" in this book. Our prayers and thoughts are with the people of Japan.

$5 at a local fete.....

Cheery Red.

I can't update the blog as often as I would like, but I did want to put this post up. A dear friend, Fiona; brought these cheery, red flowers on a grey day. Oh how I enjoyed them! Today and then particularly, she was there.

Slow, Simple Pleasures.

I am interrupting my slow recount of our trip to join in this meme: go and have a look to see how others are slowly enjoying things.

Rainbow Over the Hills.

....from our back door.

Moving Furniture Around.

Poor, patient husband E deserved this paper as the night before at about midnight; I was restless and we moved furniture around. This was after our trip. I find being away gives me clearer thinking and renewed perspective. It was so hot as well!

And Back to Beechworth.

Our trip...I have realised that most of the pictures are of interiors or cottages; we did see beautiful countryside and wilderness areas as well.....

Back to the Mainland.

More From Ross.

In the Midlands in Tasmania.
