We decided a sleep-in was in order on Sunday morning and a late morning ride saw me with a wet bum - it was sunny when I left.
Kicking autumn into winter
Very soon most of the trees will be bare of leaves
Melbourne's weather this weekend brought alternating showers and sunshine and at ground level everything is turning green except for the leaves falling from the trees. I love to see the leaves filling the gutters and pathways at this time of year and when there is a gust of wind, they come alive.
I can remember when we were in Paris for an Autumn in 2006 and I went for a run and the streets were full of leaves - it was a great experience.
I stopped to take a photo here while the wind blew leaves from the trees - it can't really be seen in this shot but when I jumped back into the car it was full of leaves.
Leon's favourite meal of the moment is roasted pork belly with lots of crackling. So I've made it twice in the last few weeks. It needs to be a bit of a treat because it's very fatty, but it is delicious.
Made it this night with lots of small potatoes cooked under the pork with garlic cloves and rosemary.
Yummy broccoli and carrots with gravy from the roast and some apple sauce. Yummy!
