Today’s 1pm pic is brought to you by the play of light and shadows through a perplex window and scaffolding…
Well, not really a slacker. Today will be a third day with no 1pm pic due to the fact that other stuff has occupied my time. Is this the end of that experiment only 48 pictures in? No it is not – I will still do 365 pics, they just won’t happen over the course of a year 🙂
If perchance you happen by the Victoria University Kelburn campus and want to see the Tuatara you can see them here:
Unfortunately I can’t seem to find any real details about the programme. At one point I know they were thinking of having them on web-cam but that doesn’t seem to have eventuated. Anyway for some reading look here: http://www.victoria.ac.nz/sbs/research/ecology-biodiversity-research/tuatara-biology/tuatara-biology
Today’s 1pm pic is of a Tuatara under a sun lamp in the rain – I had never seen one actually out in the enclosure before….
Today’s 1pm pic is again suffering from a case of “what-do-I-take-a-pic-of-next?” – The thing that caught the eye being the student’s notice board… And so reveals that I may just be a very boring person 😆
Tonight the E.I.C., otherwise now known to many on Twitter as @ParryKylie, is baking meringues. These meringues will of course be magnificent examples of the bakers art, seeing as she is a baking goddess. 🙂
However, doubt may have crept into the hearts of the waiting devotees. For the E.I.C. tells a tale of high woe.
Evidently a few weeks ago she did make the perfect meringues. They were beaten to perfection, lovely white peaks dolloped onto the baking paper. They were placed carefully into the oven – pre-heated just so. Monitored in the oven the E.I.C. saw that they were cooked to perfection, so she turned the oven off, and as you are supposed to do (I am told) left to cool in the oven.
But these meringues did not grace our tables – no they are The Meringues Of Myth. For you see the E.I.C. did forget that she had the meringues in the oven, and turned the oven back on to pre-heat it for tea! And lo she did wail and gnash her teeth and feed the now burnt perfect meringues to the dogs.
Tonight though there is no such danger, and as such we are confident in our meringue eating future – tea has already been cooked! 😆
Today’s 1pm pic is taken on a lovely sunny day. The E.I.C. took Mr. 5 for a ride up the drive on her scooter… Go Easyrider family… 😆
Today’s 1pm pic is brought to you by wet firewood. This is how we dry it so it will burn better – in the wood stove 😆
