Just lately.

Just lately, as always, we've been buying as much of our fresh produce as possible locally.
We're lucky enough to have a little road side stall not too far away from us, and while the honesty box may be soldered down and padlocked.......it's still nice to know they're still around.

{once you taste a home grown carrot, like one of these, you will never eat a store bought one again. I never even realised what carrots were supposed to taste like until I discovered these. so. much. flavour.}

Just lately, I am struggling to keep on running. But I do keep on running. My messed up, mumble-jumbled head needs me to keep running. It's a head clearer.

Just lately we've been setting up mud pie kitchens at Grandmas' dam.

........and stripping off, hanging clothes in the trees and going for a {very} quick dip in Grandmas' dam.

Just lately, we've been hanging out at the library.........still.

And waxing more thread {oh, and untangling thread, lots of untangling}

...........to make more books. Still loving doing that.

Just lately, I've been really loving the quaint way the ladies at the op shop bundle up the sheets/fabric for sale. Just a strip of fabric torn to tie it all together.

Just lately, and not something I do all the time, I've been taking self portraits in public toilets while waiting for my son to get moving, so I could show you that I actually did finish off those wrist warmers I started knitting, ah, a long time ago.

Wonderful post and photos!
I love fresh produce...and love seeing it sold on the side of the road, too, though infrequently.
Cute that the honors system includes a padlock in 2012! :)

So great to meet another book-binder, too! Making books is such fun!

Wishing you all the best,
Mary (from BYW 2.0)

Thanks for your comments and I apoligize for not getting in here before now.
Mary and Anastasia, I have not been able to locate your blogs :(
fitundgluecklick, I have checked out your blog (love it, will be back for food inspiration!), but I have not been able to leave a comment, I'm not sure what kind of glitch I'm having there?

cheers ladies, have a great weekend!
