Church lunch at Titirangi

Kohe and Rawiri shouted us all lunch at a wonderful Indian Restaurant in Titirangi yesterday. We enjoyed lots of toasts, and read out some of the uplifting texts that had been sent in the last couple of years, that Kohe had copied over to strips of paper and handed around in a glasses case, to read.

Nothing much happening these days

. . . apart from the acquisition of these rather lovely button necklaces, purchased off TradeMe for $20.
and the glorious crunchy deliciousness of frost on the grass on my walks in the morning. I especially walked across the soccer field which was pristine in its whiteness - and enjoyed the footsteps I left behind.

(Sigh) but that's about it for winter really. Bitterly cold inside the house and jolly hard to knuckle down and work in such a temperature.

Mid winter food

I love baking in the wintertime - the top Pear Frangipani Pie ready for tonight's Midwinter Christmas party, and the chocolate brownie with blackberries (below) last night's dessert. Unfortunately, I had also just found out from the doctor that my cholesterol was way up (8.5) so that put paid to total enjoyment of the food baked.
