A Lovely Weekend with Friends Fires and Drinks


Our very dear friends from Brisbane came out for their country visit. We ate and drank far too much but what a nice night. The pizza oven was baking, the outdoor fire  smoldering and even the inside fire place was alight for later. It was lovely and cold .  Sadly that may be it , the forecast is for 33 C next week ... could be swimming in winter? I did finish another Lucy block last night but no photos.sorry.
