I've just realised that last week's post didn't! It's out there in the virtual world somewhere.
So what have you been making, baking, growing and sewing this week?
I've emptied the present box onto the family room floor and started the sorting (and I'll do a show and tell once the parcels are in the post). I'm having fun finding everything and remembering who it's for. Thank goodness for a gift list.
Worked on Christmas cards so they'll be ready to send on 30th November.
More lemon butter using lemons found on my walk.
The fruit is soaking to start baking Christmas cakes and puddings. I like to soak it for a week, giving it a little drink every morning. I'll start baking next weekend with the puddings so they have time to mature. Then the cakes.
Banana walnut bread for Wayne's morning teas.
Zucchini pickle to replace the jars that had dodgy lids.
17 pints mince; 2 quarts mince; 5 quarts meatballs for the pantry.
Rhubarb - the plant Lacey-dog dug up has come back! And it is going great guns. Stalks were pulled from the other plant and stewed. I split the crowns and replanted to get three new rhubarb plants.
Planted out tomatoes, pumpkins, beetroot and lettuce.
Sprinkled sweet basil, oregano and thyme seeds under the apple trees, and violas in some empty pots.
Picked tangerines and oranges.
Picked broccoli from the garden.
Spent time each day finishing off the sewing for this year's Christmas gifts. While I was stitching on buttons and cutting threads I was thinking of next year's gifts.
Yesterday Hannah helped me pull out the fabric boxes and they are now sorted into projects. Every piece of fabric has a project assigned to it, and it's been listed so I have an idea of what to work on. Next will be the cottons and then the wools.
