So much rain!

on August 6, 2013

It has been raining solidly for over 48 hours, and so wet here on the farm that Ming got the old ute (truck) bogged just outside his shed this afternoon, after milking!

Today I went into town and picked up Ants to take him to my mother’s place for afternoon tea (chocolate pudding that I had made the day before). Several weeks ago, I stopped using the wheelchair taxi for outings like this because I experienced a strange new surge in energy and willingness to take him out. My mother showed us more photos of Scotland, including one of her with the bride and groom.

Then she showed us some of Mr Tootlepedal (my blogging friend) and his wife. I felt a vicarious sense of pleasure to meet them through my mother. They have a B&B and my mother stayed with them just before my niece’s wedding. She told me that the Tootlepedals, and their house and garden, were just as charming as I had imagined.

This is the link to the Tootlepedal blog-post that mentioned my ma.

Anthony said my chocolate pudding was dry (you see, this where Ming gets his tact haha!) But his little highness polished off the rest tonight whilst watching a very serious episode of Home and Away.


And I am now cooking some soup!

    Julie, we could have done with some of your rain …. because it too dry out there now, but we have a fantastic summer. You’re mom … what a fantastic photo of her … beautiful lady and that pink suits her so well.
    Ming look like has swollen more than your pudding *laughing.
    Soup wouldn’t be on my menu in this heat .. but it looks like a brilliant beginning of something tasty and comforting.

  13. Your mother is lovely, the bride and groom a beautiful couple. I wish you’d send some of that rain our way. We’re in a bad dry spell.

    I’ll admit you got me with the rain…now it seems to be a worldwide epidemic. Great photos, wonderful to figure out how Tootlepedal fits in to all this, the blogging world becomes smaller and smaller the more I do this and I wish I had more time for it…in this life. Thanks!

    I am delighted that you have this new surge of energy!! Your Mom is beautiful – so dignified!

    Julie, you make me smile, and you have made me cry. I like smiling better. The pictures are charming, And dI am sure the “Tootlepedals” (what a unique name) made your mom extremely comfortable. BTW Ants said it was dry he didn’t say it wasn’t good pudding, which Ming proved it was indeed good. Take care and have a wonderful day.

  17. tootlepedal says:

    I’ll be over for the soup shortly.

  18. Great pictures! Uhm…..that soup looks like it was going to be heaven in a bowl!

  19. The picture of your mother with the bride and groom is so beautiful. I don’t believe Anthony about your chocolate pudding and your soup looks delicious.:)

  20. Beautiful wedding photo. What a handsome trio they are.

    I love that photo of Ming. Good grief, Home and Away has been going forever, it seems.


  24. Thank you for dropping by my blog as for some reason I stopped received notice of your new posts which is why I haven’t been by in ages………..but I am here now………have to say your mum looked gorgeous in the photo I like that colour on her.

    Your mother is beautiful Julie. I’m sure the bride and groom were absolutely thrilled that she travelled all the way from Australia to celebrate their wedding with them. She looks wonderful!

  27. It was great for your Mum to catch up with one of your blogging friends.
