We spent Christmas at Boort in western Victoria with Yvonne's sister and one of her brothers and a couple of their kids. It's a small town whose main attraction is this lovely lake. The caravan park on the lake fills up with boats and water skiers every holiday season. We rented a house right on the lake for 3 nights. The stay was too brief but very enjoyable.
In the centre of town is an amazing scultpure of a seat made from old wrenches by John Piccoli (from Barraport near Boort) whose work is unbelievable. Have a look here.
I hope you've had a sense of peace and of the presence of Christ these last few days.
Today's holiday cooking. I've taken to cooking at chicken schnitzel and serving it cold and sliced in a salad. Pasta sauce has roast onion, garlic and capsicum along with the tomatoes and loads of basil.
It's plum season here. The tree was here when we bought the house. It's unpruned and crazy, and a large branch fell down recently, full of fruit. We can't reach all of the fruit and the birds love that. The plums are small and not that sweet, but very edible. This is where the bees made their hive overnight before they moved on. So plum jam is on the list for this week.
