So how have you all been? If I have not read your newest post (which is a distinct possibility as I am way way behind on my reader) I hope all is well. On my side, a lot has been going on.
I had a solo weekend with the kids with Hunter being in the bush and the kids were really so easy. I was rather amazed. We had a little picnic at Ouma's on Saturday which the kids loved. I will post some pictures later this week.
On Saturday me and one of the other bookclub ladies made a private blog for our bookclub in order to reference the available books, share our recipes - believe me a lot of delicious food gets served at book club, and to share the photos we take from time to time.I do hope that the ladies will get with the (electronic) program and join in.
We baked another batch of Hayley's condensed milk cookies - that recipe is a total winner. Just a pity I can not stop eating them.
I am so busy at work, but I guess in the economic climate I really can not complain. A lot of architect have the opposite problem at the moment.
The Princess was at her very first "evening" party on Saturday - she was invited by friend K's brother (9) to his party, as his sisters' one friend to be her company for the evening. They did some target shooting with bow and arrow and she actually hit it once, they braaied boerewors and made "stokbrood" (dough around a stick that you grill on the fire) and did a lantern stalk which the two little girls won! I hear not without the help of the party organizer but so be it - they were so proud of themselves. She had huge huge fun and only came home at 9:30. Needless to say she had a looong Sunday nap.
I have finished reading "The Leopard" by Jo Nesbo (all 740 pages) and I think I have a new "to read" crime writer. If you enjoyed the Stieg Larsson books or is a Deon Meyer fan I can highly recommend this book. The girl hosting bookclub next month has bought the two books preceding this one. So lots of reading joy in stall for me.
And I have just had a call from friend E to join her for lunch, so until next time - hope your day is great. And that your weekend was too.
