It's lawn mowing time again!

As most Queenslanders would know it has been a muggy and rainy week in parts and it has been wonderful to see that there were some decent falls out west which would have perked up our farmers but it was patchy and unfortunately some missed out. We had just over 50mm but other areas of town got a lot more but it was enough to start greening up the lawns and I have heard lawnmovers going the last few days which have been silent for quite a while as our lawns had turned brown and crunchy.

Our Simple Living Toowoomba group is starting back up again on the 1st February and once again we are fortunate to have the very talented sisters Valda and Neralie present a sewing workshop called 'Bunting and Bucket Hats'.

Back to soapmaking!

It seemed like ages since I last made a batch of soap so I rustled up  a quick batch right at the end of the year so I could start off 2020 with some plans to experiment a little with new recipes. I used one from Jan Berry's Simple and Natural Soapmaking. It is a version of her 'Palm-Free, Vegan, No Butters' recipe.

Home again!

Well, it is back to the routine once again as I arrived back home on Friday after a few wonderful days with my daughter and her family in Townsville where they were holidaying. It was lovely to see my grandchildren once again and, of course, they have grown like weeds since I saw them. The weather was perfect if a tad muggy at times but mostly we were inside in the aircon or walking along The Strand in the shade of all the trees along there. This is the first time I have been to Townsville in summer as normally I would visit in winter when my girl was studying there. I had been warned about the humidity there in summer but it wasn't too bad.

Happy New Year!

At the time of writing it is Sunday the 29th December and tomorrow at this time I hope to be on my way to Townsville to spend a few days with my grandchildren while they are holidaying there. I must admit I am not looking forward to being in the Tropics in summer but it will be worth it to see the little ones and the now not so little ones. Hopefully I can schedule this post to publish on New Years Day.
