I have to admit, I’ve felt a bit flat today. I think I have worked physically over the last 10 days or so and put a lot of energy in to keeping in touch with people in our community and keeping our home running. Today I needed a quiet day and a chance to re-charge my batteries! Of course the animals don’t understand, so there were still all the chores to do. I walked the usual Loop Track with the dogs, but went into the bush at the top of the track. I saw some pretty cool fungi in there and it was worth walking through the wet bush!
I went looking for some more rata vines today. There is a beautiful flowering vine on the side of our driveway and I wanted to get some photos of it. There’s something special about autumn flowers!
Laurie and I watched church on-line and then I decided to have a go at making chocolate. I have never made chocolate before and I thought it would be very complicated. I found a recipe that looked reasonably easy and I more importantly I had all the ingredients. I gave it a go and as it turns out it was very successful. We all have had several pieces now, (tonight’s dessert), and I am confident enough to experiment now by adding dried fruit and nuts. Mmmmm!!!
The rest of the afternoon was spent inside. I am knitting a hoodie for our newest grandbaby and I am nearly finished. I had hoped to take it up but will have to post it and hope it reaches him safely. While knitting I watched a doco about a man who climbed Mt Everest. It was pretty interesting and a nice break from the usual business of jobs outside!
I think I am going to town tomorrow. We need fuel and a few grocery items. Some of our older friends also need groceries so I’ll do a run for them and drop off at mail boxes. I’m not really that keen … I’m pretty happy in my home bubble!!!
