Last week we all ended up sick - fortunately not with covid, or the flu but the last few days I've just been resting/sleeping on the lounge all day. Today I'm feeling a lot better and have been up and about getting things done again.
I did get a few more blocks done for Summer in the Country:
I have the rest of the blocks cut out ready to sew. I'm looking forward to seeing this quilt top completed, its such a bright happy pattern.
DH and I are starting to work out new routines to our days together. Mostly its work about the house, having a leisurely morning tea together out on the front verandah when the weather is nice and planning our trips to the shops or to do errands together. I am enjoying this more relaxed pace so much :)
This morning DH finished changing all our door handles over to lever handles instead of doorknobs. They look great and they are so much easier for me to use. I have arthritis in my hands and have found it difficult at times to turn the door handles.
I've been plodding away at decluttering so we took 8 bags to the op shop today and stopped off at Bunnings on the way home to get some potting mix and some geraniums that were marked down. I'm planning on starting some seedlings this week but I cannot remember where I put the packets of seeds! As my family say - I put them in a safe place, I just don't know where that is! If I have also been saving some seeds from my veggies and some cuttings. Vegetables are getting so expensive it just makes sense to grow them to save a bit of money and growing the from scraps saves even more. Do you grow veggies from scraps or have a veggie garden? If so what do you grow - open to suggestions - I am cold climate NSW.
