How're things going for you at the moment? Busy? Cruisey? Hot? Cold?
It is pretty crazy here at this time of year, but I think we only have 1 more end of year official thing, wish will be nice, and then there are a few fun social Christmas catchups to be had, then the Summer holidays begin! Yay! I am really looking forward to some holiday time with nothing much planned except hanging out with the family, beaching, swimming, reading, and maybe a bit of crochet time too!
Since I missed my Slow Living report for November, here's a bit of a catch up of what's been happening around here...........
My sweet peas are just about finished after a few days of very hot, humid weather, but I took a couple of photos to remind me of their gorgeous colour. Next year I am going to plant a series of sweet pea teepees so I can have them in real abundance.
........the roses have been good this year, I love the colour of this one......
......potatoes are going well, although I think I have killed a few plants by mulching with grass clippings that got too hot and cooked the plants, next time I will let the clippings compost separately and cool down before I use them on the garden....
....Raspberries have been enjoyed by all, I have been trying to weigh them as we harvest and I think I got to around 9 kgs, which is a pretty good harvest! I think the boys have been eating a lot straight from the garden too.........
.....we also harvested a patch of beetroot, which was made into a yummy beetroot salad in the school cooking class. The zucchinis are already building up in the fridge, I am eating one a day with dinner, but there is still a big back log to get through!
I have been trying to have a bit of a tidy up and Get Organised, so I have sorted all my cookbooks into one bookshelf, instead of randomly all around the house, next thing to do is clear off my sideboard and make it look pretty again. I don't know about you, but we seem to accumulate a massive amount of scrap paper, old bills, notices, receipts, junk mail and random notes, I think de-papering our place is also high on my to-do list.
......all nice and organised! (for now anyway)
So I am going to hit the shops next week and get stuck into the present getting, there's nothing like leaving it too the last week to make Christmas feel that little bit more crazy!! I like it, there is such a festive feel in the air.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
What are you doing? Partying? Relaxing? Working? A bit of everything?
