So, it's that time of the year when you just don't know what to wear.
You get up and it's like, quite cold.  So ya put on long tights and a warm top.

Then in a few hours it's warmed up and you are stripping off... and putting the fan on co you are too bloody hot.

Next thing, it's gone cold again, and you are hunting out your warm slippers!

That was yesterday to a 'T'.  I expect it to be the same today.  Luckily I'm staying home, so can put on and take off at will.

I've got a bit of housework to do this morning, primarily washing.  Then I can get back to my sewing.

We were going to have 'fridge left overs' for dinner tonight, but I don't think there's enough for everyone in there... so we might just have:

 ABOVE:  Bacon hock soup... minus the mud.

And now... on with the day!

OH... it's 'Black Friday' today.  I'm not in the least bit suspicious, so I might just run under a ladder, walk on cracks, see a black cat... What else?  lol


Dinner is in the crock pot.
House is tidy.
Washing is on.
Feijoa tree is re-staked... it was falling over.
Dogs are keeping me company... getting under foot every which way I turn X's 3.
Now... I can finally get back to my sewing.

LIZ:  Yes I did do that photo!  And no, 'that' ANON has not gone away.  He/She has been a nasty stalker/commenter for a very long time.  Usually I just ignore him/her.

ABOVE:  Dinner was really lovely tonight.  The soup was really tasty and light... I didn't put very many split peas and barley in it at all, so it wasn't thick and stodgy.

Time to stop for the day and just relax.  It's been a busy, but sometimes frustrating day.

  2. Did you do that photo? HA! Very elaborate. Forgot to the comment the other day on Stew's very impressive prop. I assume Anon has gone away now with his/her meat comments.

  3. Can you just block Anon? Although I prefer the daily tormenting - shall I start sending you photos of our dinner, according to the husband, if there is no meat it is not actually a meal!!!!

  4. Love the way you add interest to a meal Like us lol the meat and 3 veg nowadays just does not DO it!!

    Last night had left over Rotisserie chicken,, so cut it all up,,, added a jar of Butter chicken and veg,, then added banana sliced really small, to cut down the HEAT of the so called MILD flavour (after cooking in micro

    then had steamed in micro snow peas beans and broccoli to add

    quick and easy and everyone enjoyed ..

    Your sewing is really gr8 and Love Stews wee handiwork to display the dinner..

    Enjoy the weekend

    Cheers !!
