This weekend has been delightfully satisfying.
I woke early on Saturday so got up to do my weekly baking - a spicy fruit loaf for the HDHBEM's lunches and some ginger crunch for her morning and afternoon teatime snacks.
Then we went on a road trip to Hamilton (one and a half hour drive south) to visit the HDHBEM's favourite dress shop. Her haul was a jacket, a pair of trousers and a sweater. Winter weight clothing so it's too warm for the necessary photo. I promise one later.
After a picnic lunch of sushi at the lovely park beside the might Waikato River, we drove on the Hamilton's only large shopping mall and I succumbed to temptation in a dress shop there. Two funky tops to wear to work and again I promise a photo later when I can find someone to oblige. The HDHBEM says her hands are too shaky to take photos now!
Last night I completed the tassell on my bookmark. I love this and will make another and they will depart on journeys to fellow book enthusiasts in time for Christmas. Meanwhile I will enjoy looking at them. Who knows I may make two more and keep one myself.
I put a picture here. Last night I started this,
