I dream of spending long whole luxurious days just 'making art', however usually only manage the tiniest squeak of time in amongst my real life.  This weekend my creativity was expressed by the monumental decision of whether to plant my vegie seedlings into rows or clumps........clumps won.
Hmmmm....nicely arranged clumps.

Gee look at those poor snails, victims of the dreaded snail pellet.  I really do have to find a kinder solution to protect my seedlings.  All the neighbourhood snails are at our place.  My neighbour treads on her snails (and she wears steel capped boots).  I'm sure they know, because some frosty mornings when I go out the front, all the snails are facing our place.......heading across the driveway to our yard.  I'm sure they're trying to squelch their little selves to safety.  I've even been more sensitive to their plight since I read a brief book review - something about a wild snail eating.  Perhaps I should have called this post 'snails'?

It has taken me nearly TWO HOURS to figure out how to find my Blog again (does Blog have a capital B?) and get some photos off my camera and onto the computor. I still have to figure out how to get them onto my Blog. I wrote down the instructions too.....hmmm....not detailed enough obviously.

I went to the Fairbridge Music Festival on the weekend with some girls. We camped in a tent on the oval - 'cosy camping' for four - we were told the tents looked like cartoon tents but were very comfy, really? Not as comfy as the tee-pees belonging to our neighbours I bet.

The Festival is all about world and folk music, but the food....was.....amazing. I lined up at the raw food van so many times it was embarrassing. The raw cheesecake, smoothies and chocolate bliss balls were to die for. I think I'll have to become a raw foodie.

By the way, there ARE other hippies out there.
