An update in photo's

Already for the floors to be fixed. For anyone that doesn't know, the hose on our washing machine blew off and flooded the house last July. We have Tassie Oak timber floors throughout the house and the water caused the timber to warp. It is a huge insurance job. And a huge job for us. We have spent the weekend moving everything off the floor into the shed. We can not stay in the house while they are working, so I have had, to pack clothes, food and supplies for everyone. I will be so glad when it is over. This is the kids TV room

It has been very hot and very dry. We have had temps in the high 30's for over a week now. Everything is so dry, dusty and brown. You can see all the dust on the deck. We are still on level 3 water restrictions, but I'm sure that is going to change, if we don't get any rain very soon.

This is how many tomatoes we picked on Friday. There was more yesterday and will be more today. So we have been having a lot of tomato things.

I made a huge pot of Spaghetti sauce yesterday with fresh tomatoes. I semi dried some in the oven. I made focaccia bread with the semi dried ones today, which was really yummy. I am going to attempt to start bottling some with the larger tomatoes.

Jarred with his favourite magazine (at the moment) Scrapbooking Memories, only because he is in it!
Kloe made this fantastic mask in art this week

Fresh from the garden. We now have corn. It is so sweet and yummy.

On Thursday Chris and Zac were invited to a corporate box at the Melbourne Grand Prix. Everything was supplied for them, transport, food, t shirt, hat, stubby cooler and of course entry. I was a very long day for them, they left home at 7am and didn't get back until 11.30pm. They had a fantastic time, they were 10 metres from the track. Zac loved it, he could feel the cars going past. Chris asked him what his favourite part was, his response "All of it!" This boy is a serious 'Rev Head'

On Friday, I also had another pages accepted to be Published in Scrapbooking Memories. It is for their 'Teens' gallery. It is one of Miss Kayla, posing with her tongue out!!!
Have a great week

I take no responsibility for Zac being a Rev head.
Told you that you are only a newbie once. Well done on your second acceptance, there is many more to come.
Have fun in the Motel this week.
