Winter in Tasmania is such a hard time to find motivation. It was -4 degrees here this morning. Yep that's right 4 below zero !! No wonder I had to kick the cats out of the bed to make it this morning. I have been struggling with the flu all week and my motivation levels are very low.
So I decided to go out and buy some colourful seedlings which will flower over the next few weeks and brighten the place up a bit. Now I just have to go outside and find some nice containers to put them in.
The sun is shining here at the moment but I think it is still only a balmy 7 degrees.
So instead of sewing yesterday I decided to bake. One of my favourite things is the scent of fresh baking on a cold winter's day. I have joined in with Lisa & Sarah's weekend baking blogs.
Once I got out all of my ingredients I made a start. This weekend was Spiced Carrot Cake
With an Orange Cream Cheese Frosting
Which is delicious !!
And Raspberry Shortcake because it is Sam's favourite and she is coming for dinner tonight.
I just went looking for the boys and guess where they are???? Yes sleeping in amongst all of the cushions and pilows on our bed. What a life.........
I am going to go out and brave the elements now and do some potting. Wish me luck.
Before I go I just wanted to send my love to the people of Norway. My heart goes out to you all.
