ANZAC DAY







Despite the weather forecast we decided to drive south into the National Park. We were both in need of a nature-fix. And of course it rained. It was only light, but constant and so we cut short the walk we intended on doing. We still got to enjoy the rugged beauty and the elements and changed "the scenery" - sometimes living in the city just gets too much for me/us.

Visited family and again due to the weather forcing us indoors we decided to make Anzac Biscuits (an Aussie standard crisp but chewy biscuit , especially made on April 25th to remember our diggers). Our diggers meaning the men and women who fought for Australia and England and the Commonwealth since World War I days. I do not believe in war, nor in glorifying it, but I do pay respect to all those who lost their lives and for those who came home changed. It makes me so sad to think any one of us has to go through something like this.

We (my son Nic-3) made ANZAC biscuits on the 25th too. It was rainy and cold and we went to a small parade and then came home and were thankful for a warm cosy house and the baking smells and a little family. mmm yeah.
