Week in the Life: Saturday's Photos and Words


it's been a full on week, and i've been looking forward to not doing very much at all today.

disappointingly, i woke at 6am, but i DID manage to get back to sleep - yay!

i had a buddy, although i'm sure he was just keeping an eye on me to make sure he got fed.
'service' this week has been patchy at best lol

hubby has been away for work ALL WEEK.
i'm such a tidy sleeper that his side still looks as unmade as it did a week ago.

he's on his way home though - yay!

bonding over mutual starvation

it's tash's weekend too, although she has to go to work tomorrow.
she has zero plans today, aside from working on her latest cross stitch project.
cruisy days at home are the best.

we actually had an interesting discussion at this point. Tash said "oh i probably should do something", and we talked about how just 'being' is 'doing' and how we've arrived at a place where if you're not busy, then you're somehow failing.

she's nursing a sore neck and wasn't able to get into our chiropractor, so it's the wheat hottie to the rescue

i took the opportunity of having Zoe [working] at home during the day to get our 'gobbler' fixed.  here's a couple of things waste disposal units don't like:

MEDJOOL date stones
(and made avocado stones)
the latter being unconfirmed...

i've decided that i'm going to head to the market in town
the main reason for my excursion to the market is to get my hands on a lemon meringue blondie from Lashings of Food. i bought a couple the week before when they were at the harbourside market.

i park the car far away and walk, so that totally makes buying 2 brownies ok, right?

it may be overcast, but i never tire of the view over our harbour

plus this chalkboard makes me smile

main reason for heading to the market = brownies

bonus = baby clothes (among other things!)

oh, and that's Brenda. she was BEYOND thrilled to discover that her little mobile eftpos terminal offers paywave.

earrings made from the currency of my birth year
gifts for our new neighbours,
and wool for a crochet project

i always try and include the price of petrol in my memory keeping projects, even if i'm not filling up the car.

24 hours later it was 3 cents dearer - i couldn't believe it!
that has to be a 2+ year high, and I'm surprised it didn't even make the news
it usually does, especially given the bad press our local petrol companies have received lately.

i had free tickets to the food show, which runs friday and all weekend, but i just didn't feel like filling every second of my weekend, although i probably would've enjoyed this donut, as Katelin and Nora did!

my other reason for heading into town was to replace some of our guest bedroom linen.
now that the room is empty, i thought i'd splash out on some new pillows, although is it really considered splashing out when everything is semi-permanently discounted up to 60%?!

i spent ages trying to figure out which pillows to buy.
i also thought it was time to replace the duvet cover for a fresh and light colour.

and then [again], i spied that unmistakable pink glow outside my window and ran out the door to see this.

that's my scrap room there on the right with the lights on

he's baaaaaaack!

...and with duty free goodies!!!

happy saturday!
