My list was not so long this week. The main thing of benefit here was rain. One of our rain water tanks filled up. I think this morning the second one might be full too!
Yesterday was wonderful. I went to see the girls with cup cakes and had a lovely time with them. I came home with a big bunch of Rosemary and baskets of pink Proteas! I am in heaven! At this stage they are just in baskets and today I will get them hanging to dry and some in fresh water.
There are many buds on this tree so each week I can get some more!!
Now there has been rain Lucy's kitchen window looks out over water. While doing dishes she sees Swans! In the evening they have Wallabies on the lawn. I was able to get a photo of a Swan on a nest.
Early in the week (and before the rain) we worked on bonfires. We are up to number 31! One day we had four going at once and as Andy chainsawed I would drag the dead wood onto a fire. We finished a whole area this way.
See the little figure in the background? That is Scout. Yep, we wore her out. Now this is really saying something as this dog never tires! But she totally flaked out by later afternoon.
It was hard work and I have a fair few bruises but a day outside in the sun and getting heaps done was so good. I notice lots of birds and beautiful little finds.
I went into town to meet my friend Wendy. We do some little trades and talk what to make next. It was a lovely day and I was able to go to two op shops and pick up several bargains in the grocery store.
My pantry had many additions. I am really pleased. Checking grocery stores in small towns and studying the catalogues etc.... there are not that many really good deals but when I do find one I get a fair amount and stock up.
I hope it was a good week for you? How did you build up your home, savings, pantry or garden?
Thank you for the amazing response to the new series. I am working away on our first subject, saving in the laundry. xxx
