A weekend in the sunshine

04 October 2010

This weekend was absolutely magnificent. The sun shone brightly each day, it was warm without being hot and we got to spend the whole weekend together, all three days!

Friday, we enjoyed the company of some wonderful friends. The kids all had a great time playing inside and out. Everything from video game to football, you name it, they played it. They were all completely exhausted by the end of the day.

On Saturday we started working on our vegie patch. Hubby had already spent a couple of days preparing the patch, but we still needed to buy some timber edging, mulch and of course our vegies. By Sunday afternoon we'd finally finished. We planted carrots, beans, peas, strawberries, raspberries, basil, parsley, thyme, oregano and chives. We've still got to plant the potatoes and some broccoli if we can manage to find some. We need to add some chicken wire to help keep the neighbourhood cats out and some pinwheels to keep the birds away from the fruit.

After working hard in the garden all weekend, the boys played some backyard cricket and totem tennis.

To top off a great weekend and to celebrate the start of daylight savings, we went for a walk along the beach. It was a beautiful end to our weekend.

What did you do this weekend? Come and play along with Claire and Telle too.
