this and that


My month is going well so far. It's late in the day as I had a long hairdresser appointment this morning. I have a new look. I will update my profile during the week. 

Dinner is in the oven baking and I thought I would just put up a post as the sun goes down.

It has been a glorious day here today. No wind and there were folk sitting around the streets of town taking in the sun (and vitamin D to go with). What more could you ask for in the last month of Autumn. We have a few more days like this to look forward to this week.

This light is on loan to me to use when I am knitting or whatever. It has been handy in the evening, but also I have had a few early early mornings and so I put this on to start the day without turning all the lights on. Must be part of this new season of life. I enjoy it though. 

I can smell the vegies being baked so better shut the office down and move down into the warm. 

Until next time, keep well ... Dot

MAY, my month

On my post last week, I mentioned these little jackets. I have made a few to sell. The cherry one is made with luxury cotton and the cream one has alpaca in the mix. They are nice and soft. Of course, I used a 'dotty' button to finish them. 

This month is my month as I get to celebrate Mother's Day, my birthday and at the end of it I fly to Adelaide to be with my daughter who is having her first baby. I am really looking forward to all this month holds.

I have lots to do and I have not made a list to share with you as it is all in my head. So, I need to keep moving and making-it-happen!!!

Today I tried a new breakfast. All the ingredients for this 'Up and Go' get thrown into the blender and oh my, it is delicious and filling. I won't need my second coffee until lunchtime. Here is the recipe:

2 tb nut butter (I used peanut butter)
2 tb chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut cream (leftovers of can are in the fridge for next time)
1 ts vanilla
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1 tb sweetener

Mmmm!!! Creamy!

The weather is cooler and time to pull out all those woolly accessories. I am making some cowls and using, for the first time, a 10mm hook. Lot's of fun!

Until next week, keep well ... Dot
