walk to craft and home from school 021

Today is going to be partly dedicated to getting the yard looking reasonable.  At the moment the back yard requires mowing, autumn leaves need raking and the vegie patch needs to be weeded, dug up and fertilised so it’s ready for Spring.

I’m doing some windowsill planting inside for things like herbs and I have a sort of hothouse (plastic) and so am going to put in a pot each of tomato, cucumber and maybe some salad mix and see if anything comes up.

I also planted the lizard his own patch of radishes and carrots because he loves the leaves – his house has a UV light and so weather isn’t a problem.

Then I plan to make a chocolate cake – from a packet mix.  I bought a ‘That’s Life’ recipe book yesterday which looks amazingly simple and delicious so later on a trip to the shops is on the cards because the plan is to make something from it for dinner tonight.

After that and the lounge will be my friend where I shall pop on my earphones pick up my current knitting project – a poncho – and listen to Bill Donahue speak about the esoteric language of the bible – sooo interesting.
If church was like listening to Bill D – I would so be there.
