On my mind ...

This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY. If you're in another country you should join in when you read this, even if it's still Thursday.

To take part, all you have to do is post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, come back and add a comment below, with a link to your blog photo so we can all find you. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.

I wrote a couple of months ago that we'd planted our loofas late this year and wasn't expecting much from them. Then I reported that I was going to pick the handful that had grown.  Well, I didn't get around to picking them, one thing after another put it to the back of my mind, then yesterday, I thought I'd better check them out and probably rip out the rotting vines. It's been raining here on and off for some time and loofas, like their cucumber and pumpkin cousins, develop powdery mildew and all kinds of mould then they're constantly wet.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered the loofas were not only healthy, but they're still growing and flowering! We had one drying on the table on the back verandah, I picked three more dry ones to complete their drying, and there are about 12 more, still green, on the vine. So Jeni, I'll reserve one for you and I'll also be selling the seeds. So that, as well as the overwhelming response yesterday is on my mind. I'm working at my neighbourhood centre today so I'll be sewing, knitting and planning soap making, drying and storage with Hanno on the weekend.

Thank you for your visits this week and thank you for all the emails that arrived too. I'm trying to answer them as best I can.
