An ordinary week

Although the temps are still pretty cold at times it has warmed up enough for the bumble bee queens to be out looking for warm dry places to make their nests. After having had half a dozen or so exploring our lounge over the past few days we decided it was time to put up the screen curtain. The bees are quite clever though and have been known to come in low and crawl under the screen and then go exploring :) Last year we had a nest under the house for the summer. If it happens again we may have to have them removed, unfortunately.

Even though the weather has warmed up enough for the bumble bees to be out and about exploring there are still days when it is cold, wet and with a hint of snow in the air. That is when I get the crock pot out and make up a big pot of soup. Guess what we're having for tea tonight? I think we'll have hot buns with it :)

We went for a wander up the street one day this week, well we went for lunch originally and then took a leisurely stroll afterwards. It was one of the nice sunny days we are starting to get now. I like to poke around the bargain racks when I come across them and so while my GKB looked through a couple of second hand shops that's what I did. I was very pleased with a couple of tee shirts I got for around the house over the summer. Just $6.00 for the two of them. A real bargain :)

I've also just spent a morning blanching and freezing broccoli to use next week when I am on duty for the Friday Light outreach meal. I don't cook a meat dish any more but when we are given free veges I think it is shame not to use them. May make a cheese sauce to pour over it, hmm.

looking in from the doorway of Colour me Crazy
While we were in Aussie we took a short trip to Airlie beach and had a couple of stops on the way. There was a shop everyone said I had to go into in Proserpine. Colour me Crazy was just that ,very colourful and very crazy. Even my GKB was fascinated. I'll take you inside next time I see you.

  1. Never have understood how those screen curtains keep the bugs out. I think with the mosquitoes we have and gnats we still need full screens. This summer sitting on a screened porch we still had very tiny biting bugs we called no see 'ums. Curious about the color shop.

  6. Your soup looks so tasty, Diana. I can't wait for our weather to cool down some so that I can make a pot, too. The Color Me Crazy shop looked like a fun place to visit.
    Thank you for your visit!

  7. It sounds like a busy week for you.

    We are having some nippy nights although they are getting warmer lately. Last year, we bought some of those screens to attach outside the doorways and was really happy with them on both doors. I hope to get new ones for this coming summer.

  9. Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
