* Glued the soles back on my moccasin slippers. One sole was half off and the other was just starting to come off. I'll be getting new moccasins before next Winter so I just want them to last until then.
* Fed the compost bins with kitchen scraps. Darren used his special pronged tool to turn the compost.
* Fed the chickens some old lettuce, cantelope seeds, weeds, snails and grass.
* Used an old suitcase to store my Christmas nutcracker collection in. Their usual cardboard storage boxes were getting a little shabby ( also taking up too much space ). Darren was going to buy two plastic storage tubs until we realised we had old, small suitcases in my shed that we'd outgrown years ago. We saved ourselves about $14.
* Lined my bathroom bin with lots of recycled bread bags.
* Cleaned the dishwasher using bi carb and vinegar. Wiped down the seals and door with Miracle Spray.
* Picked lettuce from our garden for a salad to feed eight people.
* Picked our first ever apricots. We also picked strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries and two peaches. I made up a fruit salad to feed eight people. About 1/3 of the fruit came from our garden.
* Made up a bottle of diluted Dynamo laundry liquid. I have to keep all available bottles diluted due to a certain daughter liking the full strength liquid.
* Cleaned the inside of the kettle using citric acid.
* Gratefully received lots of little pavers from my Dad. We plan on using them around the strawberry patch and outside our garden shed.
