Perhaps neglect can be a good thing

Just leaving a plant in a place under the right conditions and perhaps giving it some water. Sometimes that's a good thing.

Firewood on the edge of autumn

It has been a long time since I have gone into autumn with this much firewood stacked up.
My friend Lee came out and took a few limbs off. For $400 I ended up getting at least a half a tonne of firewood which is about $250 worth. Now that makes all sorts of sense.

There was a lot of stuff laying on the lawn this morning.

Sewing again: Thanks Mum.

Dead mum's sewing machine. I've had these shorts with a hole in the pocket for about 3 years. Now that Mum's sewing machine is back in service I have been able to provide my own tight arse solutions to some of my everyday problems.

Thanks Mum.

Mum's sewing machine got I workout

Mum died over 2 years ago and in the wash up I got her sewing machine. I was pretty good at it when I was young but never really had any need for it. Skydiving however makes fools of us all.

And before I go on this overseas trip my weight belt needed to be compartmentalised. I had the tools and I thought I had the talent. So I got the job done.

It was a nice job to do -for a number of reasons.

Yet another skill

A good friend got me some oysters and I have never really spent time learning how to open oysters. 6 oysters in and I am starting to get it.

What _is_ yummy pasta?

Did you ever cook a dish that made you just want to cry. I think I might just have done exactly that.

We call it yummy pasta but it really is just a white sauce with ham and it's perfect for after Christmas. So I fried the hammer chose to use fresh sage this time and strangely a jar of is a tablespoon of minced garlic from Woolies I let that all settle and then stayed in some semi dried tomatoes and anchovies. After that a can of Carnation milk light.

1/2 a cup of white wine before taking it off the heat and putting me Carnation milk in.

This is all looking pretty good. I think we had a win.
