My weekend in pictures

5 July 2010
The weekend came and went with housework being done, a few phone calls and only one visitor. My housework always just rolls along and curves around everything else that happens here. They say a picture tells a thousand words, so I'll let theses pictures tell my tale. Starting with the sad story of Saturday's bread.

Lecithin granules and polenta look the same in their identical glass jars. I sprinkled on what I thought was polenta. Wrong! It was sticky, I knew I'd sprinkled on lecithin but thought it would be okay to leave in the bread. I have never baked lecithin before, we usually have it in our muesli. Those black runny bits are the melted lecithin. I should have scraped it off. We ate the bread, it only affected small bits on the top. Yet another lesson learned.

Chook highway when they mistook my camera for food.


I cleaned the laundry benches, put away the soap I made last week, soaked some curtain linings and did a load of washing.


Then folded and put away some clothes and sheets.

We had homemade pizza for dinner on Saturday night, with egg custard and apricots for dessert. Last night we had poor man's roast - meatloaf with baked potato, pumpkin, turnips, carrots, peas and gravy, and the rest of the egg custard and fruit. I call it poor man's roast because it is just a meatloaf, although you get the impression of roasting meat cooking in the late afternoon. And the added bonus is that we have enough meatloaf leftover for sandwiches during the week.

And finally, shhhhh, he didn't know I was lurking inside with my camera while he was working in the afternoon sun. We saved up and bought three timber blinds to replace our very old curtains. Hanno put them up on the weekend and had to adjust the strip tops. I'll take photos of the new look lounge room later in the week.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Happy 4th to all my American friends. ♥
