Rock and Roll and Rain


We had a wild wet and windy night up here last night.  The river is up and we are flooded in but it is not as high as it was this time.  It is quite nice, we haven't had a flood in ages - the last one was nearly exactly one year ago.  I wonder what the water hole will be like? Hopefully all the slimy bits and weeds will have washed away.

I recently discovered Food Doodles - a food blog with healthy baked yummies.  The other day I made these and this morning  Sunny and I  cooked Wholewheat Oatmeal Choc Chip cookies, when they run out I am going to make Cosmic Cookies.

A bit of fancy dress to brighten up a dull day and some dancing to Django's 'Django loves rock'n'roll' CD , here are some of today's songs......

A Six Word Autobiography

I was just having a bit of a look at Brain Pickings (a most interesting website) when I came across an article  with a collection of illustrated six-word autobiographies written by students.

This is what popped instantly to my mind without any thinking.....

"Garden, cook, love, dance, be merry!"

What would your six words be? 
 (Another of mine might be - swimming in the sunny smiling sea - or  -   a tea in the morning sun   - or     
 I like to listen to music)

I like this one done by a 10 year old ....
