Isn't the Mandala beautiful! Els is such a talented artist. I love the sleeping cat - it just looks like my Ninja Cat Marty sleeping in my bed. Also, I'm born year of the rabbit and I love Owls. I have little owl knick-knaks around the house. I love flowers - I have a floral tattoo on my back that I had done when I was living in Ireland. So Els has captured little parts of me in this mandala. I was so blown way when I won it. I had a really stressful 6 weeks with my youngest son so it was a lovely surprise that really cheered me up. Thank you Els.
I've put it in a frame for now until I find a much nicer frame and plan to hang it in my lounge room.

It has been such a beautiful few sunny days up here in the Mountains, it feels like the Summer we didn't have. So we were able to get out and about in the garden.
Katie and Marty (our cat) were hanging out in the tipi for while. Katie was giving him cuddles after he had hurt himself - he has a big scratch under his eye. I'm assuming it was from falling out of a tree.
You can just see Marty in the top corner keeping watch over us as we get on with our day.
Here he is trying to get down. You can see the cut under his eye.
We finished up with a veggie curry with fresh chili from my mum's veggie patch, which made it a bit spicy!

It was such a beautiful sunny day up here in the mountains today, Lou and I did some Easter craft outside. I blew the egg yolk and white out of the eggs a couple of weeks ago and had them drying out on the window sill ready to be painted on.
Lou took a picture of my egg as I was drawing on it with wax crayon. We then painted over the wax crayon. We had to be careful not to press too hard as the shell could break, as Lou's big brother found out when he was drawing on his egg this afternoon.

Here is our other Ninja Cat sleeping. It's hard work climbing all those trees out the back.
Katie was playing around with graphics.
