This Cinnamon Bun just came out of the oven and the smell was divine. After it cools I spread a cream cheese mixture across the top and slice it into 8 pieces. It serves very well for breakfast with a cup of coffee. I keep it in the fridge as it is gone in a few days.

Once a week I clean the loos and basins. We have 3 loos, 3 basins and the laundry and kitchen sinks. I use Pine-O-clene for most of the cleaning and the place smells nice after it. 

This is a new muesli/granola I made. I had to stay around the oven to turn every 4 minutes as the coconut can burn. It was well worth the effort. We have been enjoying it for breakfast served with yoghurt and berries.

This dinner consisted of a pizza meal. Everything was thrown into a casserole dish and baked. Certainly a different way to serve pizza but was delicious and filling.

The mornings are cooler now. When on my morning walk sometimes I wear my jacket and other times I brave the cool air. It does not take long to warm up and makes for a wonderful start to the day. 

Trust your days are filled with pleasant aromas... Dot

Hi there!! It has been nice to sit outside and 'do stuff'. More often than not it is much cooler out there than indoors. We are not sure how long this will last, but are lapping it up while we can.

With 10 days of the month left, I can report that progress throughout March has been productive. I have had the incentive to keep to the list and enjoying what I am doing.

This was finished yesterday. A little boys cardi for a 6-12mth old. 

The Pram Blanket is off to a good start. I hope to have that finished.

Apples are falling off our trees so today I will be making apple sauce and putting some in the freezer to make into future Cinnamon Buns for breakfasts. Yummo!

That's it for another week. Be good and keep smiling...Dot

For today's blog I decided to take a weeks worth of horizon pics from my dining room window at 7.45pm each evening. At the start of the week sunset was a little after 8pm and I thought I would get some lovely sunsets so chose to take them 15mins prior. Turns out to be very interesting and tonight already the time for sunset is set at 7.43. The days are getting shorter ... fast.

I love the cloud formations. There's an idea for another post. I wonder how may different formations could be found it I took to time to look up?

Food for thought! ... Dot

'Make it' March

Hello. I thought I would give you a look at my planned list for March. I will have to keep onto it as there are some major things to do. A week has gone by and there is some progress on a few items. There are spots set up for work in the bedroom chair, dining room table and in my favourite corner.

This week I got out into my vegi patch and planted some seedlings. This lettuce will be red and green. Will look nice on the plate.

We are always using spring onions and zucchini, so I planted some. The garden should be flourishing in a few weeks. I am also having a go at mini cauliflower. The white moths are flying about so I have to keep an eye on the young plants.

Tomorrow is cleaning day and today has been Tidy Tuesday. I started at one end of the home and now have to tuck into my corner. It is really untidy and has been for a while. Wonder if anyone will notice when they call in later today?

Short and sweet  ... Dot
