Tearing the house apart looking for my new waterproof cover for my new Kindle Paperwhite. I'm hoping I didn't leave it up at the lake.

Oooo, such a pretty lump of lusciousness! If it were mine I'd pair it with some tomatoes fresh off the vine. But it isn't mine...and I don't have tomato plants in my yard ...so I guess it's all yours!


I am turning off the computer, plugging it into its power cord, and going to try and accomplish something around this house. Anything. Got to stop having fun with my DC friends. Here I go. No stopping me now... *sigh*

Watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. One place was making baklava with walnuts. Now I really want to try making maple walnut baklava.

Kylie, last Christmas Poo and his wife bought me a Shawl. And I love it. When my shoulders are cold, all of me will never feel warm. If I put on a sweater, I am always pushing up the sleeves when I have to put my hands in water. Same thing with long sleeves on a nightgown or top. But the shawl is perfect. It covers my shoulders and leaves the bottom of my arms free. The pointed sides when I sit down cover my knees and keep my legs warm. I even wore it under my coat. It was perfect to wrap around my neck so I didn't have to wear a scarf. And it was just as warm as a sweater, but much lighter. With the shawl, I never have to push up the thermostat.

That sounds like a great idea Ads

I am the same when doing dishes etc, rolling up sleeves of my jumpers or hoodies

I did warm up nicely on the bike...had to turn the heating off after that as I was too warm

Today I hit the shops again and bought Steve a new pair of work pants (slacks) and also some new office shirts and a new tie, a lovely burgundy colour

I then went and dropped in on mum again and we had a lovely iced finger bun each for morning tea

This afternoon I have been washing and ironing all Steve's new work clothes and watching some Eastenders

Let us know how it turns out if you make it. I have never made it either, but would love to try to do that some day too. I am sure that would be a hit if I made it for brunch some time when we get together with friends.
