It was a nice morning to go out on our balcony. We had some paper and rice. With the rice we made pictures - just a bit of fun with texture and form. The boys played with the rice through their little fingers, changing shapes, just letting their little fingers go where they want to go on the paper.
Lou got a bit excited - after a little while rice was going everywhere (LOL good fun :) ). And of course he, like most 2 year olds, couldn't help himself and had to have a nibble on the rice. He wasn't too keen on the uncooked rice which he spat out quickly. :)

...... And to find out that the landlord wants to tell us where to put a veggie patch when we plan to do it.... aaarrrhhh!!!. My ex-next door neighbour gave us a brilliant reference - she told how we transformed the backyard from weeds to a beautiful native garden and tiered veggie patch. We had to make the backyard a bit more child friendly - that's why we did it up a bit. Anyway, that's what got us this place (according to the real estate). I think the new landlord thinks we are going to do a backyard Blitz on his place! I'm over doing up other people places to make it look more homely and not a rundown rental. Hopefully, this will be our last rental place - we are saving for our own place.
But it is a lovely place in a beautiful spot in the Blue Mountains. I do feel like I'm in a holiday house. I have a pine forest out my kitchen window which I never get sick of looking at. In the afternoon the sun shines through it - it's so magical. We are next to a bush walking track but it has been too windy to go bushwalking with the kids.
Katie has a beautiful cubby house..... just have to be careful of the bees!
