Stalled

Had headaches all last week due to unseasonably hot and unsettled weather.  The rains and cooler weather started on the wwekend and my head is fine now.  Well...it's not aching, not sure how fine it is :)

So not much happened last week, apart from getting a couple of letters written and knitting the beanies for the masses family...
11 and counting...
 
Will maybe do one more and then move on to something else.  I'm a bit over beanies...
 
 
Had a lovely early morning walk yesterday after the overnight rain...
 
 
I am love, love, loving the autumn colours
 







Tomorrow is Anzac Day, so in honour of the occasion I made Anzac Biscuits...



Here's the recipe...
 
 
Off for my afternoon walk before the rain starts up again.
 
I hope you are enjoying your day!

Productivity

Good morning sun...

Didn't walk this morning, but took my car down to the supermarket early (it opens at 7am) before it got busy to do a monthly stock up.  The rest of the time I just pick up what I need on the way home from my morning walk.  Got that unpacked and put away, then...

 washed my car 
 
and mowed the lawns...
 Only showing you the front bit (because it's the tidiest) but there was also the nature strip, outside the front fence, the side and back yard done.

Will have lunch (chicken soup from the freezer), then I think I've earned a sit down now and perhaps some knitting...
four beanies done...and counting...
 
Keep Kalm and Knit!

Weekend Words

It's been raining steadily for most of the day...

Thunder and lightning this morning, and although it has eased off a bit this afternoon I doubt that I will get a walk in today.

Yesterday I spent a lovely day at the Seventh-day Adventist church.  Bible study, church service (which included a baptism), and a fellowship lunch after.  As usual, I ate too much, and didn't get home till 3pm!  When I arrived home I made a cup of tea and almost fell asleep in the chair, so took myself off for a river walk to revive.

This morning (Sunday) I broke with tradition and had porridge for breakfast...

...instead of my usual quinoa, stewed apple and rhubarb, and sheep yoghurt, because I hadn't stewed up any more fruit.  It made a nice change.

I had planned to go to the Mennonite church, but had a headache (which is now gone), so watched a few sermons by Steve Wohlberg on the Mark of the Beast.  They were very interesting.

Came across this article in the SDA magazine on pencils...

I much prefer to use pencil that pen.  Easier to erase your mistakes.  Pity life doesn't work like that :)  My favourite pencil is Staedtler HB...the ones made in Germany.  Are you a pencil or pen person?

Here's the article if you want to read it...
  I'd never thought about why they were hexagonal


Good knitting weather, so continuing with my hats for the hordes (a.k.a. the family)...
have started my fourth
 
Just a bit of mindless chatter on a wet day!
 
It's stopped raining so I think I'll brave the wind and cold and go for a walk, I've been inside all day and I crave some fresh air.
 
Make the most of your day!!
