Last night me & Rick were at Sam's house till about 11 - taking photo's of water droplets!!
I found a mad tutorial here & wanted to try it out, & it happily coincides with my 52 weeks project theme 'water'
Unfortunately my D60 wasn't compatible with the External flash Commander, & i offered my tripod as a prop, so i sat back & watched Sam & Rick fiddle away with settings.
In the end i got to take about 90 shots (on Rick's camera) and these two were the only ones i were semi- happy with. Gotta try again next time, with a bit more practice maybe i can get some super cool shots hehe..
I've been in a baking mood lately. Yesterday took out the box of BASCO gluten free bread mix & baked a loaf for my Babe. I was a bit nervous i hadn't baked baked before..
But it was surprisingly easy & it turned out nicer then the gluten free breads that you get from the bread isle & supermarkets (Rick has been eating the supermarket ones for almost two months now, and he LOVED this one that i baked).
They were really soft, and chewy (not hard and crumbly), & i tried some with peanut butter & nutella - YUM!!
Basco Gluten Free Bread
I'll probably bake a few more for him until his diet is over.. I hope its over soon i miss eating out at really nice restaurants.
It's my work mate's Wife's Birthday this Saturday, & since he is taking Friday off i baked these muffins today so i could bring them in tomorrow.
Raspberry Muffins with lemon icing
Dropping some off to Trang, Jeremy & Ann tonight!
(they'll make me f a t if i keep em all hehe).

Sunday - went to a bush walk planned by @annies102 @ Kuring-gai National Park. It had been months since my last bush walk so i was huffing & puffing away up & down stairs, all while having my camera hanging around my neck (anytime now i could of just tripped and stacked it head first & my camera would of been the cushioning haha..)

Surprisingly the camp site was empty - except for maybe 3 or 4 other families. Score! I have been camping when its camping season, there's so many people around, you don't really get peace & quiet (and you hear bloody snorers during the night!)
- a floor mat
- a table
We went venturing to the beach, and walking trails, it was GREAT to have the place sort of all to ourselves..
This lake we came across - was so beautiful the water was SO still, that ripples from one tiny bottle brush went right to the edges. So still that the sky was 100% reflected as if it were a mirror.
This little guy visited looking for food .. & later on in the night came back with his mates to raid our rubbish bags!! (which were hanging on the gazebo & they bloody climbed up!!) Half way through the night i heard hissing and crumpling plastic sounds haha.. & in the morning there were foot prints on Ann's tent lols
Monday morning woke up & caught the sunrise - from a high vantage point about 10mins walk from our tents
