Isn’t this a creative letterbox? One of the things I like best about holidays is all the interesting mailboxes we see! 🙂
These pictures were taken in a little touristy shop in New Zealand. The shop also had possum hats, jackets, rugs, and possum and merino wool jumpers and yarn. 🙂
I saw some hand spun wool here, and I just couldn’t resist taking some photos. 🙂
It looked so cute! 😀
Here is some more yarn.
On our last holiday, we visited New Zealand. We had LOTS of fun!!! 🙂
We went to the snow twice: once to The Remarks, and once to Coronet. These photos are from the second time. This is picture of my father about to SHOOT me! 😉 😀
We also had a go at building a snowman: he didn’t get very big, though – the snow was too hard. 🙂
This is Miss 7 with him. 😀
After that my father decided it was nap time! Miss 11 and I told him he would fall off the edge and never be heard of again, but he was UNMOVEABLE. 😀 😛
A few days ago we dried apples. It was great fun!
First, we filled a sink with water, and washed the apples. Then we cored one, using Grandma’s new apple corer, and watched it twirl around and around, making spirals!
We had a bit of a play with it, making it s t r e t c h. 🙂
Next we dropped it into a cup of lemon juice, so it wouldn’t get brown. We let it soak for a while, and cored another apple while we waited. After we thought it had been in there long enough (we’d finished coring the next apple), we took it and laid it out on a lemon juicer, and dunked the next apple.
After it had drained long enough for us to core another apple, we broke the first apple into rings, and arranged them on the dehydrator, being careful not to put them on top of each other.
When we finished the apples, we put the dehydrator on, and cleaned up. We like dried apples crunchy, so we left them on a little longer than the recipe said. They were delicious. 🙂
Here’s another creative letterbox… 🙂
