Oh yeah, that other shiny thing I made

Last night I made pasta with a tomato and courgette sauce/base thing - like, from scratch, without buying one of those jobbies in jars. Nothing unusual in that, right? But apart from the mushrooms and a capsicum, everything else in it was from our own garden. Including the herbs.

I am inordinately pleased about this. Also, I see a lot of tomato-eating in our future. And possibly salsa-making. And sundried-tomato-doing. Although, I've no idea how to do that. Preserving? Eep!

Yes, the Brainfart is supposedly now called the Hypnotutu. Because that's at least a little bit descriptive, right? It's going to get another outing in about a month's time, and this time I'll deliberately ask someone to take some video footage, because it's shiny! And ever-changing! Apparently this makes it difficult to photograph...

Tomorrow I have to shear sheep. Polwarths, even. Wheeeeee, back to reality. Oh wait, I have a picture of a fluoro orange monster sitting on a purple fluffy unicorn (photo by Kylee Bowater) on my desktop.

As you were...
