I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. I would have cheated and raced up to the fruit shop. I’ve never tasted a Persimmon, believe they are a bit tart. Little devil, didn’t your grandson think you could see him. I think you got the colour spot on in both pictures.

      1. Oh well, Barbara & Joanne, I’m partly convinced. I’ll try making it one day, I actually had a bunch of kale in my hand the other week, and thought ‘what if I don’t like it’ so I put it back until I knew what I was going to do with it. Do you eat it raw, then? … in the salad?

      2. You can find lots of recipes online. Kale is rather bitter so it pairs very well with sweet … either as a dressing or adding fruit or both 🙂
        I often add it to soups.
        Good luck … hope you like it 🙂

      3. Ahh, just been reminded it has terrific cholestrol-lowering qualities – among other things – steaming for five minutes is best for that, apparently. I knew there must have been a reason I was looking at it in the supermarket. Thanks Joanne.

  2. Bold and bright pictures, Christine, spot on for the colour, persimmon. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a persimmon. I’ve heard they’re some kind of berry, but I don’t know if that’s true or not. If they’re a bit tart, i might be tempted to bake them in a pie.
    Cute photo of your grandson.

  3. Just saw your little thingy on the bottom with “Share your World” on it. Makes it easy to look things up. (Has it been there long, or have I been unobservant again?)

    1. Hi Sue, I messed around with it the other day with the footer widgets, and my sidebar (I better go add today’s piddling word tally). I thought I would add the new widget so I can pop along to Cee’s website to see the current set of weekly questions. Some lovely reading. 🙂
