Our internet is still pretending to be a yo yo, so we are having to be patient??!!...........
We really enjoy the cold Spanish soup gazpacho, very refreshing and ideal during the hot days when you really don't want anything to eat, so hubby decided to have a play
He took the basic ingredients, plus olive oil etc, a few tweaks and produced this
It was lovely, but it changes each time he makes it, now he is blending twice and sieving it to give a nice smooth texture, such a good way of using the plentiful veg around at the moment
Our vine has loads of white grapes on it this year, just need a little rain to help them swell, then it will be a race to beat the wasps......

These are the first pickings of the almonds, we have a young tree in the driveway so they were easy to pick rather than putting the nets down and bashing the nuts, even though some of them were small, the kernals were quite large, plump and on sampling yummy. We have around 16 almond trees, wonder what the yield will be this year

Needed a little over the shoulder bag for just those few essentials, really wanted this for the fiesta but guess I was a little late lol, came up quite nice using bamboo and cotton yarn
Saw this cute little rabbit pattern complete with its own wardrboe of clothes, just had to have a play to see how it came out

Isn't it cute, dungrees, a little dress and hat as well.
We are expecting storms for the next few days so time perhaps to play further.
Of to batten down the hatches
