Still rewatching game of thrones and trips into big smoke

Hello my friends.....this pic if you look REAL hard you can just see a tiny bit of snow.....but melted before it hit the ground.....it sure was one cold day last week

One of my meals during week was butter garlic scallop prawn salad....yum

I also made some taco-meatballs

and they were real yum with a simple salad ☺

on with game of thrones.....

we had a train trip into the big smoke (city) a 2 1/2 hr trip each way

we had egg bacon cheese muffins but left the muffins alone ☺☺

a selfie as you do while waiting to see a real estate agent....

train trip back again with me doing some knitting of a beanie for Paul ♥

We had a nice lunch in our small town of lamb/chicken souvlaki without the pita bread ☺☺

A bit more done on the knitted beanie

Rain and more catching up

Well we have had a fair bit of rain here and the local creek turned into a river for a few days.....

It is way down in town so not near us as we are up a large hill....

More low carb cooking and this mexican-chicken-tortilla-soup is delish.....I just made a few adjustments with what I had here ☺☺

Still watching catchup of Game of Thrones almost season 4.....

I had a night down at my daughter Sarahs house and her guy Shannon loved the hat I crocheted for him and Batty my other grandboy has grown a lot....

We watched Labryinth not to everyones liking but I have fond memories while kids growing up ☺☺

and another fun one The Dark Crystal also great memories ♥

Youngest grandboy Riley loves Sarah's cats and here in a dark picture he is loving one of them and me in the background....

a much better pic of Riley in the morning trying to have fun with Dante' her oldest cat ♥♥
I also visited little baby April again and watched her having a swimming lesson at almost 6mths of age ☺☺ no pics this visit......

I bought a lovely ball of wool from a local lady heathermaid etsy shop while I was at a makers market in town on weekend....I bought classic rainbow and the colours are great ☺☺

hooking a hat up

I also made zucchini lasagna by just substituting the pasta with zucchini slices and was so yum.....we have had the leftovers for breakfast yesterday and today ☺☺

Am making Paul some black fingerless mitts ready for our overseas trip in aug/sept/oct ♥

and the hat complete with a little black border ☺☺

it is reversible and this is the other side ♥

I used this pattern ravelry.com/patterns/library/reversible-strands-for-men-and-women-too and so easy even though looks complicated....spiral ribbing so neat 

and have now started a knitted hat joining ravelry.com/patterns/library/scrapalong so will be interesting how this goes 

today for lunch I made low carb pizza with chicken bacon mushroom olives....the crust is pretty well just eggs and cheese and some leftovers for later ♥

More rain is falling, although the flooding/river rising is less for now

In this pic an hour ago you can't even see the rain.....
well tomorrow we are expecting temp range 2-10 celcius so awesome lol lol
keep warm out there and for you who are enjoying summer, ENJOY xoxoxo
