Monday is a public holiday in Auckland so this weekend is relaxed. I know I have time to complete all my chores. However the weather man had promised only one fine day so I rose early this morning to make a start on the "outside jobs". The runner beans have finished fruiting so they were pulled, along with numerous weeds and in the company of two really tame starlings, I tidied up the garden. Fertiliser was sprinkled on and hopefully the promised rain will wash it down into the soil. However the rain may mean that the car does not get washed. Oh dear ;-)
Next, the HD3QBEM and I went to the butchers shop. We go and stock the freezer every three months. I had determined to clean and de-ice the freezer so today was the day! All done and I feel satisfied to cross that item off the list and to have a basic menu planned for the next weeks.
As a reward we went out to sushi for lunch (again!) and on the way home I called at my LNS for some more DMC perle for this.
