This weekend was noice. Great weather (see the blue sky below). Knitting at the pub. Yummy food, roast lamb and vegies on Sunday and entertainment by Mr Leigh.
Finally made cumquat jelly from the home grown cumquats. Managed to get 3 jars. I added cloves to the finished jelly when bottling it, don’t know if it’ll add to the flavor. It seems to have set really well, so I’ll definitely go to the trouble of making jelly again.
Saturday pub knit with Gayle, Em and Janine. We met some very sweet guys (behind the girls). I think they had more than double the piercings we had, but they were just as fascinated with our knitting as we were with their piercings and leather.
Eventually this will be the herb garden. I got as far as melting the records this weekend but couldn’t drag my lazy ass to the nursery to buy organic potting mix and seedlings. I’m thinking basil, mint, sage, rosemary, catnip and parsley.
This one will be the flower pot. Not sure what, maybe a native. Don’t know if you can grow Sturt Desert Peas in pots?
Whilst sitting in the sun on the deck I attacked a kitty that had gone a bit wrong. I’d dropped her and one of her eyes had splintered so I had to gut her and cut out the eye. Sounds a bit gruesome. She’s looking a little worse for wear but I’m hoping she’ll come together.
