After being out all day on Saturday I had every intention of staying home for the next 3 days. Sunday, Monday (public holiday) and Tuesday (I will take as an ADO). Three whole glorious days at home!
I started early on Sunday morning, up at 5am, I did my usual morning routine-emptied the dishwasher, set up for breakfast, took out the sourdough starter for making bread tomorrow, put on a load of washing, bought in and folded some washing. Then I spent an hour on the computer updating my blog, had breakfast, feed the sourdough starter, folded hubby's work sheets, tidied and decluttered the two top draws in the kitchen and the container holding all my frequently used kitchen utensils.
I wanted to go outside and start on some gardening, but it was raining so I went into the sewing room and gave it a good tidy and wipe over.

After lunch I cut up one of the beautiful Pineapples we bought on Saturday and put the skins and core on to boil to make some more Pineapple cordial. I am thinking of making a light coconut sponge and pouring this syrup over the cake and serving it with whipped cream. Anyway, thats what my brain was thinking of when I was sewing later in the afternoon. I must have been hungry!

We had a super easy dinner as we had leftovers from last night, I just popped the slow cooker bowl back in the slow cooker and heated it on low for a couple of hours. I added three boiled eggs and some more beans to the curry to make it go a bit further, the eggs absorb the flavour of curry beautifully.

For the rest of my time off I would like to tidy the yard, start on a new bag for me, make the above mentioned cake, tidy inside, make sourdough bread and a normal yeasted light rye bread, clean the showers, and start reading some new books I ordered for myself for my Birthday on Tuesday.
So, for me, staying home really does = getting stuff done. What do you think?
