Well I have finally hit the half way point of this photo a day challenge. The mind point is between 182 and 183, so from here on in it is down hill. We are well and truly into winter now. There hasn't been too many rainy days and there hasn't been any real storms yet, but the temperature is quite low and my fingers are freezing as I type this. I think I may need to find some gloves to help me out.
Today we went on a site visit to see two houses with high star energy ratings.
One of the houses is owned by a TV presenter.
The car window was covered in frost. I had a few early start and
it was a struggle to get out of bed.
Sunset, moon and a plane. This is the view from my backyard.
It was in and out of the house on a very busy day.
I spent the cold evening walking around the city buying
last minute presents. I love sale time.
A teapot full of cocktail for my friends 30th.
We watched 'The Great Gatsby' at the Cygnet theatre (a gorgeous art deco building)
before walking around a little and then home to warm up.
My first attempt at ice cream using my new ice cream maker. On the menu; home
style vanilla ice cream with caramel and chocolate chips.
Some times I don't want to go to bed. The idea of washing my face,
brushing my teeth and everything else seems too daunting.
So I stayed up a little longer taking photos of Dallas.
My second attempt at ice cream making. This time cinnamon for a work function.
Another day, another recipe. This time I tried out Gajar Ka Halwa
(Indian-style Spiced carrot bars).
The end result. My carrot bars and cinnamon ice cream
served with coconut balls made by a work mate. It was
all for a Indian feast held by the social club.
We had a lovely day shopping. We went to get a chest of drawers and
came back with an hour glass, some cushions, bathroom
accessories and a chest of drawers.
It was a lazy Sunday so I made chai pancakes with vanilla sauce,
topped with left over cinnamon ice cream for brunch then I put
on the slow cooker and we had pulled beef with
barbecue sauce and apple coleslaw for dinner.
I came home to find these adorable books waiting for me.
They were a present from my plus one, just because he
thought I'd like them. He was right.
From the next set of photos on I will be on the homeward stretch. I am undecided if I will miss having to take photos all of the time. I may not take one a day but maybe I will be more conscience about taking my camera with me more so I don't miss out on all of the moments I never think of capturing but wish I did.
Until next time.
Love, love Elle.
