Inside and out

It's pretty unusual for Kien and I to spend all day at home on any Tuesday. But last Tuesday's tumultuous weather was not conducive to venturing anywhere.

I was all geared up to do some baking with Kien, but alas, when I asked him if he wanted to bake muffins with me his prompt response was "no!" followed by "I want helicopters on iPad". So he entertained himself and I baked on my own.

I love warm home made muffins for morning tea on a dreary winters day.

The sun came out in the late afternoon, and I bundled him up warmly and went outside.

I love seeing raindrops dripping off Agapanthus.

And as is typically Kien...

It was nice to be out and about even though we only stayed within a 100 meter radius of home.

Kien liked playing in the "stream".

The stillness after the rain is so beautiful.

Yum muffins, Pete is the baker in our house, all I have to do is put them in the oven and take them out :) Seeing Kien in the 'streams' reminds me of a game I use to play with my poppa with the water than ran down the road, I wish I could remember what it was called! Beautiful photos. It was so awesome getting home tonight and having dry washing on the line! I hung it out around 6 this morning hoping it would be a nice day! enjoy your weekend x

Gorgeous photos! Sometimes the easy option is to stay inside when the cold weather hits, but you've just proved that getting outside is good for the soul!
