get the picture

I'm on a training course the whole week. Information overload is causing evening-brain-shutdown-syndrome. Only 2 days done. 3 more to go. I don't think my head can fit any more in; I'm hoping this doesn't result in a painful and extremely messy brain explosion.

In the absence of imaginative and witty thoughts, here are some random photos recently taken...
Apple Blossoms... sort of...
This tree in our garden gets fruit which smell just like apples and look vaguely similar but in miniature size. The don't taste like apples though, yech! It looked really pretty last weekend when it was in full bloom, so I'm quite happy for it to be an ornamental fruit tree.


This here is one ecstatically surprised Cinderella after Hubby decided it was actually a good idea that she has her own transport and went and hunted down a used bike to replace the stolen scooter. Happy doesn't even begin to describe how pleased she was.
In fact, she was so pleased she made me this:

Thanks to my pal Reluctant Nomad
for providing the recipe - it is indeed The Best Carrot CakeRecipe In The World

Fun photos, I really like the Apple Blossom one. That would make a gorgeous print or painting even.

I'm sitting at my desk right now watching the clock, waiting for my lunch break, and just looking at the photo of that carrot cake is making my stomach growl! It's looks so yummy!

Okay,

1. The "not real" apple tree is pretty.
2. I'm glad Cinderella got a bike.
3. That cake looks delicious.

Last, but not least, please don't let your brain explode, Terri! :)

Guess who got a new computer??
missed ya bunches!!

Terri said...

Angel - LOL! I must admit I couldn't help wondering if the reason Hubby was so keen to replace the bike was so his li'l bike posse would be back up to full strength again ;)

Angelina - Thanks; I love the blossoms at springtime - they really brighten the place up after a long, dreary winter.

Jeff - Good news! My brain survived the week intact :)

Beads - Welcome back to Blogland and yay for new computers!

Mmmmmmm - that looks SO divine, Carrot cake is my favorite!!! But I think I have mentioned that before. I must try that recipe.

Terri said...

Spookie - I'm really hoping we won't have to buy her a car before she makes us another one, teehee!

Spookie the Warrior said...

LOL!!! Ja Hopefully.

I tagged you, seeing as your brain is feeling numb. This one is pretty easy - and you don't have to do it if you don't feel like it. Just come and have a look see, and then do it if you wanna.

Your neighborhood looks cooler than my neighborhood.... wah!!! But give me a piece (or two) of that cake and we'll call it even! ;)
