Chores Day

Chore number one.
Up early to do baking for the DBEM's treats.   Ginger crunch, chocolate chip biscuits and a gingerbread loaf.   Can you guess that teh DBEM likes ginger?
Chore number two.
I braved the crowds at Pak n Save and did my grocery shop.   Oh what a test of patience that was.  I do dislike shopping!   Usually I go one every four weeks but on the journey home I vowed to eke this out to six weeks....we shall see.   The car boot was completely full and there were several trips up and down the stairs to unload.
Chore number three.
As a reward to self I called at the Library.   Now this pile of books is calling my name and Fred Forsyth has tempted me from my knitting.
Chore number four.
And, the K is finished.   I need to have a finishing day sometime soon.  This is destined to be a circular "medallion" on the front of a notebook cover.
Now my last "chore" for the day is to watch Antiques Road Show.

Good night all.


  1. Grocery shopping is a necessary evil Margaret:-)
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Good morning, Margaret! You make me want to get right up and do chores! The "K" is lovely - well done. Can't wait to see the finished product. Lori

  3. The floral K is gorgeous! Enjoy your books. Saw that picture and started in with what's she reading? that sounds good - must look it up...

  4. Congratulations on the wonderful finish! I'd so love to make one for myself, but as a cross stitcher I don't feel comfortable with free hand embroidery. I need that grid. ;)

  5. I'm exhausted just reading this post!

  6. Whew! You have been one busy productive girl!

  7. What a productive day! Your baking looks delicious, and your finished 'K' is just awesome. Great books too - please let me know how you like 'The Chemist', and do I also spy a Japanese book in that pile?
