The past few weeks have slipped by. I have been sick, on holidays and busy at work. Not all at the same time!
Despite consuming more than my fair share of vitamin C, thanks to all of our home-grown citrus, I managed to succumb to a rotten cold nearly 3 weeks ago. It really laid me low for the best part of a week then we headed off to Melbourne to visit our daughter. Although it was cold we managed to rug up and get out and about and enjoy ourselves.
The break from work was most welcome but unfortunately it was all waiting for me when I went back to the office yesterday.
Meanwhile, it is lovely to be home and I am trying to catch up with the washing we brought back. Yesterday afternoon I made a quick foray to the garden and picked some sweet potatoes which I used for dinner as well as a large bucket each of grapefruit and oranges. These have all been juiced and will be drunk in an attempt to stave off any further colds.
I am looking forward to the weekend and having time to prepare some meals for the week ahead as well as getting a bit done in the garden. This will include the fairly rare activity of watering unless the rain promised for the next couple of days really does eventuate. We live in a relatively high rainfall area so we are not drought-affected like so much of the country but it is quite dry nevertheless. The lavender is enjoying the drier weather and is in full bloom.
Other than that some sewing should round out my weekend quite nicely. What are your plans?
