jus' bits of my weekend

not much happening here at Inglewood.. I worked really solidly in the garden, all day Saturday ~ just generally tidying up.. and some of today was spent in my vegie garden.. all the autumn vegies are growing well. Dinner tonight is simple.. roasted capsicum & pumpkin soup [both vegies from my own garden], served with Croque Monsieur [which is pretty much a toasted ham & cheese sandwich].. a perfect meal for a cool autumn night.. dutch husband came home late as he is doing some work at Villa Maria ..
an old, old recipe i had saved from when I first became a mum - 35yrs ago..

I have had such fun creating my little paper doll for the swap.. I spent quite a few hours, playing happily with paper and glue. I cannot share her just yet.. but once the recipient has received her, I will surely post a photo.
over the weekend, I tidied up my art space so that I had an orderly space to work through Walking in this World [and by the way.. Tales of Inglewood may, over the next few weeks, have glimpses into this journey.. hope you don't mind! but sometimes, I do tend to use my blog as a place to sort out my head stuff]

a new post at Villa Maria!

[oh and did you know, that it is now a year since Paul died? hasn't that gone quickly!PAUL]

Seems like fall has arrived here as well. It's so chilly outdoors it makes me wonder if I slept through spring. That dinner does sound so good. Nothing like soup and a sandwich on a chilly night.

Hi Robyn,
working in the garden is great isn't it ? When you can eat what you have grown, that is even greater.
I am hopping over to see the new post. I didn't know you had a seperate blog.
Have a great day !!!

I'm intrigued by your soup! Is capsicum anything like what we call a red bell pepper? Or is it more of a hot pepper?
p.s. Can't wait to see your paper doll!
