Tuesday's Treasure with Melody and Soooo Glad to be Home!

Well folks I have almost missed Tuesday's Treasures with MELODY, after a couple of attempts we finally made it home safe although a wee bit damp. Today we were lucky enough to get through to Gympie but had to detour through Kennilworth as the Mary River had cut off the Bruce Highway with flood waters. Yesterday we had to turn back after Maryborough as the Highway was cut in many places. My heart goes out to all those effected by the flood waters in  QLD, NSW & VIC we were only inconvienced which is nothing in the scheme of things. It took us completely by surprise. We were having a lovely old time until the deluge came on Sunday night. I have never heard or seen such heavy rain. I took a couple of pics trying to get out Monday.....
There was fast flowing water everywhere across the road so we turn tailed and headed back to Mum's.
Which brings me to my Treasure this week. Melody and I are once again in sync. It is my Mum's apple pie. I know I have raved about it before and it is probably not primped like the fancy restaurant ones but I defy anyone to tell me they have tasted better. We gobbled it all up and didn't even leave a crumb.

Now my Mum loves to feed you until your eyes fall out because there is no more room so you have to have two kinds of ice cream as well.
I had a wonderful time with my Mum and of course came home with a bag full of treasures which I will share with you in later posts.....you trying saying 'no' to my Mum. We had a very Yummy lunch at "The Boat Club" which is my Hubby's favourite place to eat when we visit.
I also got to revisit another favourite childhood haunt which I will save for my Friday Favourite.
It was a lovely break but as always I am glad to be tucked up in my simple old shack safe, dry and warm.
Blessings to all,
Michelle xx

  1. So glad you got home safely. My heart goes out to everyone threatened by the floods. After my Christmas night I know how scary it can be.
    Your mum's apple pie does look delicious. I do love pies. Just thinking of it makes my mouth water.

  3. I love looking at really heavy rain but not when terrible floods are the consequence. It must have been a bit scary for you surrounded by all that water.
    Your Mum's pie looks awesome. There is nothing better than a really good homemade apple pie - and that is that!

  11. Thank goodness you got home safely & your home was not affected. Flooding is such a strange concept for us in Perth. Mum's apple pie sounds wonderful, pity they are still to invent smellavision internet! Tracee xx

  12. So good to hear you arrived home safely. Lucky you got through at Kenilworth. I had a friend stay with me last night as she couldn't get home which is near Kenilworth as all the roads were flooded.
    I drove up from Brisbane yesterday in that rain, it wasn't fun, and there was a fair bit of water on the road, but not enough to cause too much of a problem with the traffic.
    That apple pie looks delicious.

  15. My daughter who is in British Columbia in Canada on the coast was camping and said it rained so hard it was like being in a tropical downpour. Australia has certainly had its share of flooding the last years. The pie looks delicious. Apple is one of my favourites.
