... Wrapping Father's Day presents in some of Miss 4's (extensive) preschool artwork collection. Don't you love the lurid colours? Priceless.
... Giving some of my basketware some TLC. Rhonda wrote a post a few months ago about caring for your baskets, which I bookmarked as I have several baskets that are starting to look a bit shoddy. I'm ashamed to say that in my past life, I would have tossed this basket as it wasn't "perfect" any more (you can see where the bottom is drying out and has gone grey), but hopefully once it dries out after a gentle wash and I oil it lightly with some vegetable oil, it will look as good as new again :-)
Making: Cutting out felt to sew into felt donuts for Miss 4's upcoming birthday next month. I aim to do some donuts and a felt biscuit collection for her. I will share pics when they are done, although I warn you that I am a rank amateur sewer and have never done blanket stitch or whip stitch before, LOL.
Dinner: Sausage and lentil crockpot casserole, with steamed Tuscan kale and smashed spuds (mashed potatoes ;-).
We rarely eat beef for environmental reasons here, but to keep my meat-and-three-veg hubby from rebelling against our mostly vegetarian diet completely, two or three times a year I buy some local biodynamic beef. If you eat meat and you've only ever had those vile "mystery bags" from the stupormarket, you need to try real sausages made from organic meat mixed with herbs and spices; they are sensational.
Contemplating: Trying kefir and/or kombucha. I've read a great deal about it, but I'm not sure if I'll like it? Anyone out there grow kefir grains or kombucha mushroom? What does it taste like? Do you use it in any way other than just drinking it?
