It’s been a while since I posted, so this is going to be rather photo-filled as I catch you up with what we’ve been up to!
My sister and her family have been visiting from Hong Kong for the past few weeks, so we’ve had some large family outings gatherings, culminating in a special party last weekend celebrating our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary!
I’ll start with the hat for the annual school Easter Hat Parade, even though it was a while ago now! Our son is in 6th grade, so this will be the last (I assume!) hat we’ll make 😦 And it didn’t turn out quite as well as we’d pictured it, but it was quite unique so I’ll share it with you anyway.
We try and match the hat to his current favourite things…but it was hard to come up with a new theme this year. After much thinking it dawned on me that he has been loving jumping on the trampoline – and so we decided to incorporate that into the hat, and have the Easter Bunny jumping and having his eggs bounce around too!
Recently I had the opportunity to pick a bag full of lemons from a very old lemon tree, before the property passed to the new owners. My poor little lemon tree in a pot at home doesn’t do the best job at producing fruit, so I was very pleased to stock up!
While they don’t look as ‘beautiful’ as shop-bought, their blemishes are only skin deep, and they still taste great! Here they are, with a commercial lemon for comparison
