Here is our 20 year old making meringues in our 70's plastic-wood-decor kitchen. I think a pot of cream coloured paint won't go amiss in the near future...
She likes to potter about in the kitchen and I don't mind at all. Yum yum!
Luckily she has her supermarket job to tie her over in the next few months until University starts up again. She can save some money if she gets enough shifts.
It does look a bit like a strange bird's head like this, don't you think?

We watched "When a city falls" a doco about the earthquakes in Christchurch.
It was really good! Quiet-making but with a feeling of hope. There were quite a few people and they all stayed till the end of the credits, in a very thoughtful mood. After all, we all live in Napier; resurrected from the 1931 quake.
It was also a neat feeling to see our own country on the big screen.

This little waxeye managed a quick drink.
How does our garden grow?
|Vege-beds 28 Nov'11|
Check out the growth rate in these 2 photos, 4 weeks in between. We are already harvesting fresh salads and radishes and bok-choi. Nasturtiums grow wild in the bit under the oak tree, which are delicious in a salad. There are baby tomatoes and capsicums on the go and the zucchini has flowers.
Just fantastic! We'll add another bed soon, so we can plant perpetual silverbeet and beetroots and I'd like to put in some carrots.
Aren't they just the most ridiculously complicated flowers!
But well visited by the bees and bumblebees.

Luckily she has a beautifully shaped head, and at least now we get to see her blond hair again! And her uncle and Opa welcomed her to their club, hahaha.
She has worked very hard this year; she has gained her land-skills certificate, and also the national certificate in animal care . And was presented with the prize for best improved student of the year. Considering that most of her fellow students were much older than her, we are astoundingly proud of her. You have come a long way Darling!
