Sunday Lovely Sunday

Awoke today to the most perfect Spring  morning. I then cooked up a storm for lunch. Some old favourites like the foccacia bread and olive tarts but two new things as well, beetroot humus and pineapple chutney (yum!).

The only other important ingredient was good friends to share it with.

We wined and dined outside in the warmth of the Spring sun.

Having eaten so much I had a bit of a laze in the sun with a book. Just finished  it today, called In The Shadow of Trees by Elenor Gill. It’s a NZ story and was quite a good read.

 

Having lazed about I thought a walk would do me good so I meandered down to Mairangi Bay and took Spring photos as I went along.

On the homeward stretch the sun was setting beautifully.

I am working for the next two weeks sadly, so my blog posts will be short. Have a great week, FG.
