We spent the weekend pottering around at home. Watered plants. Swept the verandah. Got the kid's involved. Talked about plans. For us and the house. There was some knitting and reading time. Almost finished the Four Seasons Jacket now. I will get around to Ravelling it sometime soon. Halfway through An Everlasting Meal. This is cookery reading at it's very best.
Breakfast on Sunday would not be the same without having a few magazines to flip through. Bespoke, which I was so fortunate to receive as a giveaway from Christina, and old favourite, Country Style. There is no other magazine that reaffirms life in the country like this one.
I baked bread. I made some very hot sweet chilli sauce (the extra heat was unintentional I might add, and I'm a little worried about how edible it actually is) and slow cooked some more yoghurt. Letting it drain in muslin for many hours left it unbelievable rich and creamy.
We made the decision that we will (most likely) stay where we are. It would be hard to walk away from the vegie garden, the hedging, the orchard planting. Hard to walk away from our house that has only ever known us within it's walls. Things here are just starting to take shape. Milking cows, goats and sheep probably won't be happening in our near future. But chickens are on the cards, and there may be other ways of keeping cows etc without the need to move.
