RE-SHUFFLE AND SHELF

Late yesterday afternoon I moved the treadmill's position in the garage and put the exercycle in the spare bedroom so I could get my car back into the garage.

Had to be done ... coming into summer my car would have been a sitting oven for us to get into.  Wasn't going to happen.

It means I'm a bit cramped in the laundry area, but looking at priorities meant the move around was necessary.

If we could have built a carport of course, none of the moving around would have been needed.  Annoying.  Can't wait for our road to be re-zoned.

I mentioned yesterday that I asked Steve to put up a shelf in my sewing room, this is the result:


 ABOVE:  Now my work table is just that, for working on, not for dumping fabric 'in use' on.
So handy dandy.


ABOVE: See that nifty bracket hook thing?  Perfect for hanging stuff off!   I saw them, and just had to get them over 'normal' shelf brackets!  They were not even that much more expensive either.  It was a good shopping trip!  *smiles*

Nice surprise this morning, Kelly and Rena popped in.
Took the opportunity to take a few photos of the grandkids that were here:



 ABOVE:  LOVELY bunch of kids.


ABOVE:  Nice busy household today.

The rest of the day I have spent sewing and being with the family, and also going for a quick drive to re-map one of the FBG's walks... had to include a couple of extended roads.

Bex and I also had a little Tiki Tour around the last section(s) to yet be mapped, St Kilda.  A really lovely new area out south/east of Cambridge.

Dinner tonight was Lamb Shanks roasted in mint sauce and onions, and lots of veges.  Super delicious.

The kids will be heading home to Auckland soon, then it will be chill out time.

  6. Noiw do you cook lamb shanks in mint sauce? Sounds delicious. I love your shelf with the rail. You could hang some little bags from it for your scissors and stuff. I need a Steve! Lol

    1. Shanks and onions in roasting dish, pour neat Whittlocks Thick Mint Sauce all over it... sprinkle it with a little salt and SLOW cook it in the oven for 4 hours at least. Thicken at the end.
