On the weekend I made pavlova. I'd never made pavlova before. I know - I find this very hard to believe too. With the bestie arriving for the weekend and the promise of lots of berries at the first farmers' market of the year on Saturday morning, I thought a pav was in order. I was inspired by a post from Nic from Yardage Girl. She posted about her pavlova and included her recipe.
And it was delicious! Thanks Nic! Chewy, just the way I like my pav, and perfect with the ice cream. For lunch on Saturday I made bruschetta with tomatoes from our garden, and we sat under the elm having the nicest time. The pavlova was the perfect dessert for a hot day ... and then it rained. Lovely!
This week I have a couple of dilemmas. One is how to find more hours in the day for my clothes sewing and some other projects I'm involved in. I could stop watching the telly, but the tennis is on and I can't miss that. I could sleep less, but I kinds like my sleep when I can get it. I might just have to move the sewing room into the lounge room.
My second dilemma is more immediate. How am I supposed to go swimming early tomorrow morning when it is going to be only 7 degrees? Swim in full thermals over my Speedos? Think warm thoughts? Stay in bed and swim double the laps on Thursday when it's supposed to be 14 degrees again?
I'm thinking c) Eddie. Lock it in.
