My organic arnica seeds arrived, so I got a few seeds planted in some organic soil.
Baked the family sorghum gingerbread. Nom, nom, nom.
I also made my first lilac simple syrup....
...and made my first Lilac Lemonade. Yum. Next time, I need to really pack the flowers in the measuring cup (for more flavor). I just used a recipe my friend shared, but there are some online as well.
I'm back to my element - the speed bag. I have moved enough stuff in the garage to get to a good workout with it, and it just makes me happy (and a good way to start my day). I am thankful that my husband taught me, and loves it too. Pretty soon the heavy bag will have enough space too.
Yesterday was not my typical "cleaning" day. As you noticed, I did not join the "Happy Homemaker Monday." I used my rainy day list and attacked the "office" and computer space with gusto. Filing was done, desk cleaned up, library books returned (I am hoping Hubby doesn't forget to do it on his way to work, I still do not have my car back), and I even took care of some recipes that needed transferred to a recipe card and into my file. I even got a few more walnuts cracked.
Today, is sort of feels like fall returned. It's cold, dreary, windy and wet. A good day to get back to the rainy day list. Or spend some time with handiwork.
