odd thermostat...

So... I had two complete days of rest and I am better now...  nearly all better.  I spent the next few days catching up on some work for a few galleries and a few extras including this piece above.  I have been in a really weird head space lately, I've been dreaming of flying.  

Autumn is really settling in and it's getting a lot cooler, especially early morning and the evenings (although Ben still likes his bedroom window open as he falls asleep, he has an odd thermostat).

I made my lemonade scones... they were good.  I will post the recipe if anyone wants to try.

Lemonade Scones

2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup wholemeal flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salk
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cream
1 cup lemonade

Sift flours, baking powder and salt into a bowl then mix in the sugar.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the cream and lemonade.  Mix quickly and lightly until combined.

Gather the dough together and pat out to 5cm thickness on a lightly floured board. Dip a cutter or upturned glass in flour and cut out scones.  Place scones on an oven tray and bake at 200˚c for 10-15 minutes, or until scones are golden and cooked through.  Wrap in a clean tea towel as soon as scones are removed from the oven.

I had to do a double take when I read that Autumn was setting in. Spring is starting in the U.S., so I was confused for a second!

Really love your art and whimsy!
