Salam Maulidur Rasul to all Muslims.
Hari ni The Little Misses started their Sunday school again after so many weeks of holidays.
So, pagi tadi I pun mulakan lah kerja baking membaking semula like before .
I made the easiest thing, banana choc chip muffins.
Sementara bananas are still cheap now, so bolehlah buat anything and everything yang guna bananas in it.
And muffins are the easiest thing to make at 6 o’clock in the morning when you are still bleary eyed and not functioning properly because you haven’t had your morning coffee yet, hehehehe…..
And after balik from Masjid and lunch and a bit of a rest, we spent the whole afternoon in the garden.
When you have a garden, nak tak nak, terpaksa jugak merajinkan diri buat major gardening stuff at the weekend.
The Other Half had to do his fortnightly fertilising tadi and also mowing the lawns even though he was so unenthused about it, hehehe.
I pulak kena prune the roses, pull out all the dying plants, plant some new seeds, harvest the veges especially yang dah terbiar tua kat pokok tu, put some more snail baits, stake the plants.
I planted some snake beans (kacang panjang), okra, dwarf beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and purple carrots seeds. But tak tau lah whether will bercambah or not.
So, memang banyak lah kerja kalau ada garden ni. Kadang2 we will be so enthused to get in the garden and do all these things but kadang2, memang tak kuasa langsung nak tengok the garden tu.
We have so many eggplants and tomatoes still, sampai kadang2 lupa nak petik so they ripened and rot on the plants and then jatuh kat atas tanah, so kena lah kutip yang dah busuk2 tu.
And then the okra pulak, ada yang sampai dah tua kat pokok sebab lupa nak petik jugak. Bila dah tua, tak sedap lah nak makan kan.
The roses pun sekarang tengah galak berbunga so banyak lah bunga yang dah tua and dead yang I kena pruned tadi.
And with the weather being so hot, lagi lah cepat the roses kecut and mati.
But adalah jugak a few tadi for me to take some photos of.
And this was what we found on our pokok limau purut.
I had to ambik gambar ni ‘blind’ sebab the nest was quite high, so I kena angkat tangan tinggi2 and just click the camera without being able to see on the viewfinder! Nasib baik dapat lah jugak tangkap gambar the 2 eggs.
The Little Misses said, “If only it was a galah’s or a parakeet’s or a budgie’s nest, that would have been cool. But it’s only a pigeon’s!”
