Loving This Weather!

I don't like to speak too soon but it must be about a week since any rain fell from the sky here!  I've been out watering my pots religiously and I've even taken the chance to do some outdoor tasks like sprucing up my decking and cleaning my driveway! And the other day I got to have my first al fresco lunch of the year:

I really hope it won't be the only one - last year I managed to do it once and that was it!

Yesterday I felt inspired to do some baking and some juice-making, with pleasing results.

Chocolate brownies and pink lemonade (recipe for the drink here - it uses fresh raspberries - yumm!)

Very refreshing and yummy for an afternoon snack!

And craft-wise, I had lots of paper scraps to use up so I made these patchwork-style cards:

The tree stamp used is from this store:

She has a fab range and they're great stamps to work with so please take a look!

Enjoy the rest of the week, hope you're getting great weather too!
