Cookie, that is early. I have one at 9.10 today and I thought that was early.
Iíve finally perfected the recipe for Wholemeal bread with Quinoa, Chia and flax seeds. It took me 3 goes to get it right. Iím 1/2 way through putting it on my blog.  Hope to finish typing it today.
Iíve just read an interesting article by Adam Liew. He writes a recipe then makes it. I do the opposite. I write down the process as I make it. Mostly because Iím converting a recipe to TMX.

Supermarket shopping yesterday.  Still no sign in book for those without a QR code and no one on the door. 

Having a friend come for afternoon tea today.

I love the sound of the bread Chookie. Mab that isn't very good at all. Even in our supermarkets you are asked if you have signed in or used the QR code.

... even the employees have to QR Code in when they come to work!  I wonder if DH and I have to run outside, then come back in and code in when we come through the door. :-\

The chances are pretty high that you and DH know you are at work Marina.
DD and I went shopping this morning. The QR codeís werenít working at any of the shops, I think it was something to do with the internet. Anyway we just took a photo of the QR code as that has the time on it. We canít be traced but if it is necessary we can prove we were there.

Cookie, I think they can also trace you if you use your credit card.  Just take longer.

Picked DS up on Friday for school holidays !! We seem to be all lazy and tiered . The maiden ewes are lambing outside my kitchen window !! Itís a ploy because when I here a lamb bleating for ages I have to go see why . DH DS spent an hour mothering up a lamb last night . The kitten is growing so fast fits into two and a half hands instead of one ! Cute and very busy , gives us all a good laugh with its antics of chasing and playing in the wheel barrow with tiny pieces of wood . Today Iím meant to be helping set up for our quilting exhibition! Iím rather hesitant as Iím putting in mums quilts she made for us, as she is my inspiration for the love of quilting and embroidery! Well DD was very unhappy to let hers even go off her bed , itís hard , grieving for all of us . But Iíll do it just not sure I want to be around a lot of people ( Covid shy) . Anyway it will be all good once itís all put together.

It's 6 deg here at the moment.  I'm just waiting for it to warm up a little and then I will go out and cut back the hydrangers.

Eye specialist appointment today.  Cataracts need removing.  Have been putting it off.  Feeling a bit better about the COVID-19 now so might go ahead.
Family for dinner tomorrow night.  3 different lots of food requirements. Need  to prepare ahead. Looks like Salmon , Chicken Schnitzel and a silverbeet and cheese tart. Stir fry Bok Choi. This is the huge veggie I found in the garden. Always garlic bread for GC. A sticky pud of some sort. ( or maybe Lemon Delicious)

My eye specialist keeps telling me the same Chookie. I just don't know.

We went out for coffee with some friends this morning. It is his birthday on Saturday so we picked them up and went up to the Swan Valley. The place I had chosen was closed. I wasn't impressed as they are usually open on Tuesday. Instead we took our business to the Nougat Factory and had lovely coffee and little jam drop biscuits which was very nice.https://mondonougat.com.au/

That is cold for you, Cookie.  Hope you managed to find some good cold weather gear to wear.
