I had my hair cut yesterday Margaret!  This morning DH was going to see his Mum, DD was working so I decided to go and see my brother and his wife. Itís nearly an hour drive each way.  They have their new home all set up and the garden done.

Tried my hand at home canning / preserving today.... did 32 jars of Apple sauce with apples off our tree (sill got a whole sink full of apples to deal with yet)
Took a long time as I could only got four jars in my biggest stock pot at a time to process them!
Hearing them ping as they sealed was extremely satisfying tho!  :D
:D

You will have a lovely supply for the times ahead. It must be very satisfying to do that with your own produce.

Well done Astarra. Preserved Apples are most  handy.

Took the kids shopping this morning! It was a madhouse! People everywhere! Guess that is what you get with school holidays!

Just some boring housework here.
DH had a visit from a friends DH who wants to set up a workshop. I gather he had a great time getting tips and hints on what tools to buy and the size of workshop he may need.

Yesterday we went to the Creswick Farmers Market.   Couldnít believe the number of people there.   They set up tables where you can sit with your coffee or lunch.  A year ago this was a very poorly attended market but in 12 months and a lot of effort it has developed into a lovely place with a great variety of stalls.  A lot of young people are growing and making there own produce.   There is a man who does cooking demos using products from the stalls.  Usually musical entertainment and all conducted under massive Oak trees.

Sounds like a lovely market, Chookie.

I went to a chamber music concert in Bendigo with my neighbour and a friend of his last night, it was wonderful.

We are going out to DS home this afternoon.  GD2 turns 19 today,
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

We met friends for coffee this morning and this afternoon I was very busy fooling around and really achieved nothing!

Cleaned the bathroom, removed everything off 2French sideboards and washed all dishes and polished sideboards. Vacuumed.  OMG I hate house work.

Same here Chookie.  I would much rather be baking.

We had visitors this morning and are expecting some more any minute. It helps eat the baking!

I also hate housework, but I am always really happy when I get it all done and everything is clean and dust free again ... for another day or two, anyway.
