I've decided to join in with this great little challenge I read about over at Belinda's blog. It's been going for a while now and Belinda does weekly updates but knowing how side tracked I can get I thought I'd just number my updates instead of doing them weekly just in case...... :)
Planting - Tomatoes, Thyme, Dill, Baby Spinach, Lemon tree, Orange tree, Lime Tree. Harvesting - Wheat (DH's 1500 acres), Snow Peas, Radish and waiting anxiously for my first lot of tomatoes to ripen....
Planning for the Future.... Sorted out the freezer and made meal plans to suit what I had. Organised DH to kill a couple of our lambs in the next few weeks to restock supplies. Finished writing up a Xmas pressie list and put aside patterns needed to make most of the gifts on my list.
Working for the Future.... Built a garden bed in front of the kitchen for herbs. Built tree guards for newly planted fruit trees to stop lambs from eating them. Started quilting Connie's quiltand cutting the shag's on DH's Old Jeans Shaggy quilt (inspiration from here) for Xmas. Crochet a blanket for Connie's Xmas dolly (yet to be made).(you can see more pics of the dolly blanket here)
Building Community....Sorted through the families old clothes and bagged a heap up to drop off to the Salvation Army next time I'm in town. Made a batch of peanut butter cookies to drop off to a friend.Learn a New Skill... Got a crash course on how to operate a John Deere 8820 Header so that I can help DH harvest our wheat crop.
And guess what?????
Less than 4 weeks til Bub #2 is due... Here's a belly pic taken while I was at work last week....This bundle of joy has been incubating for 36 weeks now and our little family is just ever so anxious to meet him/her..... Take Care :)
