I think that the amount of stuff we accumulate has a lot to do with our age .  We buy and we inherit stuff.   It is good that things go to op shops as they are then useful for someone else.  I was told on Sunday that there is an inner city suburb that has a cupboard in the Main Street where people can put small things they donít need and anyone can take them.
I was also told that another person put unwanted cook books in the recycling bin. Oh horror.
Today we are eating out. More shop surfing.

Red currant jelly, yum! CC.
We has lots of large prawns leftover so I bought a $2 packet of curry powder , (awful) and we had them on leftover toasted rolls.
We had a taste test of the plum and mixed berry jam that I made, when we had the visitors on Sunday.  They decided that it was very nice and that a couple of us should have a stall at a Farmers Market.   Donít think I would enjoy selling , Just like making and giving it away.

We also had a couple of showers yesterday.
Did the shops over yesterday and enjoyed a morning coffee at our favourite cafe.
24 here today, perfect.

Agree with CC,  Cookie that is very interesting. Thanks.
I am worried that my tomatoes will not survive the heat next Thursday and Friday.

Recovering from visitors and now looking forward to some real leisure time. Weather slowly heating up to a real stinker later in the week.

The recipe I converted for Creamy Crab soup, posted. Was originally from one of our visitors today. She has bought a TMX and was delighted to se her recipe converted.
When she retires in a about a year, we are going to spend a day with our TMX and cook.

The weather was perfect. Visitors so generous with the food and drinks that they brought.  Lots of talk and laughs.

Djinni, what brand was that baking paper?   
Obbie, congrats to your Dad for his 90 th.

Barwon Heads is a real holiday town and yesterday we attended their Farmers Market. It was great. We then went for coffee and it was nearly impossible to park. Ral has this charmed trick of usually parking outside exactly where we want to go. It happened twice yesterday.

Morning all.
Showers on and off most of yesterday. As we have 12 for lunch, hope it doesnít rain too much today. We have moved furniture to make room inside, just in case.
