A Very Good Day!

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”
~ Audrey Hepburn

 

What a wonderful weekend it has turned out to be. Good friends have come to stay at our little farm. Yesterday we laughed, and played in the garden with the dogs, and made dinner together, and stayed up talking. Our two dogs, Harry and Bert, are overjoyed to have children here who don’t tire of throwing sticks or going on long rambling adventures

On another exciting note, Ben brought me home a magical blue Triceratops dinosaur.

He’s the kind of dinosaur who can fight off bad dreams while doubling as a pillow. Right now, I think that’s the best kind of dinosaur of all. Here’s another jaunty pic of him bringing home the groceries.

Today is Drug Number Four day for me again, but I’m going to delay taking it until this afternoon. That way I can enjoy a morning of feeling relatively okay. We’ll visit the Bangalow Sunday Markets, have some lunch on the veranda and do a tour of the farm before  our lovely friends head back to the city, and I do battle with lyme once more, on this latest regime.

Last night our friends urged me to take photographs of dinner for my blog. I protested that there wasn’t a recipe worth blogging. Barbequed steak and sausages, local new potatoes in their jackets, a big salad and green beans from the garden. It’s just food I said. Anyone can make that.

So I’ve decided to share a photograph of the last time we had dinner at their place. Homemade lasagne! It was incredibly yummy. That’s Hannah, Mitchell and Milo in the photo, with their mum’s outstandingly good lasagne. I promise to get the recipe for you!

  1. Glad you’re having some fun time Nicole. Laughter really is a wonderful tonic and my Nana had a great sense of humour so we did lots of it together. In fact, I wrote one of her favourite quotes on her funeral booklet, “Laughter is free and no-one can take it away from you” LOLOLOLOL PS: Yes please, to your friend’s lasagne recipe. Will be praying for you this afternoon. xox

  2. Yes! Laughter truly is the best medicine! Fun days are like juicy fruit its good for the soul! And yes that lasagne sure does look yummy and cheesy! mmmmmmmm good! That salad looks pretty awesome also! And your blue triceratops looks to be from pretty fine stock, which is surely to become a worthy dream warrior! Whatcha gonna name him?
