Will be a humid 42 degrees Celsius today. Yuck!

Right Now I Am…

Sitting here enjoying a quiet coffee and trying to write a shopping list.

Things That Make Me Happy…

Planning the non traditional Christmas cake with my son. Every year we bake a spice cake, and then decorate it in some outlandishly elaborate way. We have had cakes shaped like Christmas trees and Christmas stockings, and snow scenes. This year, we are thinking of making cakes that resemble Christmas baubles.

As I Look Out My Window…

The sky is starting to lighten, the sun will be stretching across the sky soon.

On My Reading Pile…

Nothing. I have bought us all Kindles for Christmas, so have been buying and stockpiling Kindle books in the cloud, just waiting for December 25. I predict this Christmas day will be very quiet indeed!

On My TV…

I saw “The Christmas Chronicles” this week, and I must say, it was nothing that I was expecting. I found it rather dull and long winded, and not something I would be adding to my annual watching list. I also saw “The Spirit of Christmas”, a completely predictable romantic comedy about a woman who falls in love with a ghost. I loved it, being a sucker for romance and happy endings, and I would watch it again. This week I am hoping to watch more “When Calls The Heart” episodes, as well another Christmas movie.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday: Savoury mince and vegetables.

Tuesday: Shepherd’s pie with steamed vegetables.

Wednesday: Whole roast chicken with vegetables.

Thursday: Pasta with leftover chicken.

Friday: Meatloaf with steamed vegetables.

Saturday: Steamed vegetables with a cheese sauce.

Sunday: Spaghetti bolognaise.

On My To Do List…

Do some last minute Christmas gift shopping.

Make a Christmas grocery list.

Apply for university scholarships.

New Recipe I Want To Try Soon…

My son would love me to make him a sweet potato pie, I just need to find a recipe, as it is not very common in Australia.

In The Craft Basket…

A trio of fabrics to cut for a quilt I want to make my son.

Lots of pieces of fabric to stitch together to make crazy quilt blocks.

Some baby quilts to sew.

Bunting to finish for my kitchen window.

Looking Around My House…

I am surrounded by Christmas, and craft mess, and it makes me happy.

From My Camera…

Party (7)

My Simple Pleasure…

Reading Janette Oke books.
