Not much to report this week, Wayne and I have come down with head colds and we are both pretty miserable. But we have plenty of eucalyptus on hand to use in the vaporiser overnight. I also made a roller of thieves oil for him to use during the day; I keep mine in my bag, on my desk and next to my bed.
*Tuesday was a gorgeous day, warm and sunny with a light breeze. We spent time in the garden, getting more beds ready for winter. It's almost done!
*Turned the scrapings and scraps from soap making into liquid soap for hand wash.
*Cut rhubarb from the garden and made rhubarb scones for afternoon tea.
*The sourdough starter has took off, then if fizzled. Right now I'm trying to rescue it as per the advice from Cheapskaters who are all expert sourdough creators. It is amazing and so exciting to watch it. Even more exciting to make pancakes with some of the discard yesterday - they were delicious.
*I made mini stuffed cob loaves for a luncheon I attended. They were a hit.
Made two potatoe bakes. One we ate during the week, the other has gone into the freezer. And yes, I used disposable foil trays, so that if the potato bake goes in a food hamper I don't need to worry about getting a casserole dish back.
*Spent half an hour every day decluttering somewhere - linen cupboard, our wardrobe, the laundry, the kids' bathroom cupboard, the kitchen dresser, the bookshelves (that one is hard, I don't like parting with books). And dropped the donations off every day too, so there was no temptation to put things back "in case".
*We had rain so no need to water the garden.
*The raspberry canes that were cut back and transplanted last week have new shoots already.
What did you make, bake, grow and sew last week?
