This was my kitchen table on Monday...
I just can't seem to get organised to do menu planning. I think my problem is that I overwhelm myself with all the recipe books I have. I pull them out and start going through them, but I still battle to write just one weeks worth of meals.
This is where I keep my recipe books. The folders on the second shelf and at the bottom are full of recipes and other bits and pieces from some of my favourite blogs.
I am so pleased with this little book...
My mother in law has been so kind as to write out some recipes for me and put them in this book.
This lady has beautiful handwriting and she writes everything this way.
A lovely keepsake.
We had our first frost for the year on Monday,
1C, but not as cold as what Linda is experiencing though.
The lawn with a nice coating of ice.
We have a new money tin,
and have started filling it.
This is going to take a while as this one is bigger than the last tin...
Hubby has been busy chopping wood to keep us warm this Winter.
He made up this frame after seeing something similar in one of the Earth Garden magazines.
Having a frame like this is a lot better than having the wood laying on the ground, and easier on the back muscles.
Getting quite a pile now...
For those that are interested in what we used our $711 dollars for.
This is a stump splitter...
We had to put more money towards it but believe it is a good investment.
No more chopping wood for hubby, something he has been unable to do since having his double hernia operation. (or so he says lol)
Makes life a lot easier...
Just let the machine do the work.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a pleasant day so I might try to get out into the sad vegie garden and dig some weeds and tidy it up a little. We let the chooks in there and they have scratched all the mulch everywhere looking for bugs but they didn't eat any of the weeds.
Hope you are all well,
