Garden/allotment – I made a good start on weeding the front garden, and the soil was perfect for it. I had to stop as some fencing was being replaced, but I should be able to finish this later this week.
Exercise/stay fit – I had a good walk, to a distant post office and back. Very pleasant – I always enjoy seeing other people’s front gardens.
Craft/making – I made a start on the next patchwork project. It’s so much easier second time around, and as I hoped I’m feeling increasingly confident about using the sewing machine. Also made a second batch of yoghurt. Am hoping this lot turns out ok – yesterday’s was strangely runny and a bit separated. I don’t know why. It’s usable, but not how I like it. If this does the same way I’ll buy a small pot of yoghurt to use as a starter next time.
House/home repairs, improvements – no.
Admin – a bit, plus another zoom trustees’ meeting. These are so well attended and so very productive. We make a good team.
Kind deeds/something for others – we’ve got a good swap system going on in our neighbourhood. Today I needed a small amount of duct tape to mend a couple of things, but didn’t want to join the rather long queue at the local DIY shop. Fortunately a neighbour was able to offer me enough to get the job done (in fact Malcolm already had enough to do one of the jobs). A cake recipe I sent oldest son and his partner seems to have come out well – I think we’ll give that one a try if we manage to get hold of some more cocoa.
Stay sane! – Yoga, always. Other people’s front gardens. Lilac blossom. Wisteria. Birdsong. Rain. Some more (virtual) holiday planning for next week.
