Singleton's Awareness Day

aka Valentine's Day. Sigh.

Every year I dread this day, whether I'm head over heals or putting the SIN in single. Of course, like every lady, I'd like to be treated and showered with love, but unfortunately can never plan for this special occasion because it falls smack-bang in the middle of harvest.

With all the romance in the air (and the Bride-to-Be's never-ending planning for the Wedding of the Year), I've been a little more taken with Love, and have been searching through others' loveletters, poems, etc, sourcing some ideas for the Bride-to-Be.

Cupcakes makes everything better!

Hmmm...after the terrible streak of bad luck I've had the Fashionista decided to cheer me up...

Yes, we like pink.

The "Just-add-water" cake mix...Martha will be a bit disappointed, I know, but we're getting there.

Big boy baby-marrows...

I arrived at the cellar this morning to find three bins of these in our force cooler. Seems we grow them extra large in the South African sunshine.

Here's The Queen's famous zucchini bread recipe (I'm sure she won't mind me pimping her Martha-genuis to the world!)

And we're off!

Slowly the care-free, fun summer days slipped us by, and kissed and caressed all the grapes in our vineyards ripe until they're bursting with flavour and delight, ready to be dropped into our able hands to take further care of them.
