Welcome back to another edition of 5 on 5th. Much like last month weather is cold and overcast. Thursday began with a house inspection from our landlords. There was much running around like headless chickens. Mica, our cat did her part by keeping the native wildlife at bay. I wish she would learn to mop.
After the house inspection, I finally got to put my feet up with a cup of tea and the brand new Alphabet Family Journal, which had arrived on Monday. It’s a brand new publication by an Instagram friend of mine. It’s a brilliant snapshot of Australian family life.
Thursday is shopping day, so hubby and I headed out to the supermarket. It just so happens that our local supermarket is located right next to a giant hardware store. Bunning’s is a siren call to Gardner like my husband and a DIYer such as myself and we did not leave empty handed. Hubby got new fence posts and chicken wire to extend our veggie patch and I got purple carrots to grow in said patch.
Shortly after shopping and unpacking the groceries, we headed out for a walk around the lake. I feel the cold right down to the bones if I sit still too long, so it was nice go get out and get some exercise. It’s a little hard to see in this photo, but you can just make out the 4 giant cranes that punctuate the Bendigo skyline. Our city is currently building a new hospital and the cranes can be seen from nearly everywhere in the city.
For dinner hubby and I tried a new recipe – olive, onion and anchovy tart. I enjoyed my tart with balsamic baby greens. Hubby is a bit more of a purest and was happy to forego anything healthy looking. Both versions got 2 thumbs up.
On a side note, Still loving this project it’s really pushing me to work on my digital designs. I think maybe I have a hexagon in mind next month, but after that it’s anybody’s guess. You can see the rest of my 5 on the 5th designs here.
