There is a great video of Echidnas here . They are just so durned cute!!!
Well, our sojourn in Albany is done, Dan is doing his last day of work today and then a whole 2 days break before we have to drive up to Perth for Xmas. I had thought that a month into our trip home we would be all relaxed by now, but as usual if it isn't one thing it's another.
But we do get highlights, like the delicious duck egg pasta I made the other night for dinner. My favourite. I just don't make fresh pasta with chicken eggs anymore as it is just not the same.Duck egg pasta is just so bouncy. Mind you I am not sure if that is the same for all duck eggs as we have muscovies which are not technically ducks, not even remotely related.
I have started some stuff in the studio, there is a dyepot happening (of course) and I have been working on my collection of paper mache bowls, 18 of them have had an external coating of traditional gesso, several layers in fact and now I will begin to decorate them I might even take some and add them to my market stall and if a miracle occurs they may even make it to the Etsy shop coz that surely needs an update. But I do need to get my hands on a heap more beeswax. I have some coming to the next Demark Market but that is not till January 8th which seems along time to wait.
At least I have purchased all the xmas presents I am going to and they are wrapped (in recycled paper) under our titchy xmas tree.
Hope you all have a good one and I will see you on the other side.
