* Made soap for the very first time. I was a little nervous of the unknown but all went very well. Now I'm waiting for the soap to harden ( cure ) which takes six weeks. Only five more to go until I can try it. I'm hoping to sell the odd bar or use as gifts to recoup the costs. A blog post on soap making will come soon.
* Turned the heater off for a few days as the weather was mild. I can feel Spring in the air.
* Went to the shops for milk fruit and veg on Tuesday. A few things on my list were a little dear so I bough other fruit that was cheaper like pears for 99 cent a kilo instead of apples ranging from $1.99 ( old apples ) - $5.99.
* Tipped the crumbs from the bottom of the Wheat Bix packet into the Seasoned Bread Crumbs container.
* Made another batch of Miracle Spray. This 2 litre bottle is kept in the kitchen under the sink and the one I made last week is for the laundry.
* Made a batch of Easiyo yoghurt. I then saved two tablespoons of that yoghurt to make a batch of sweetened yoghurt.
* Made some pumpkin scones using cooked pureed pumpkin from the freezer.
* Gifted a jar of relish from my stockpile and a jar of Cranberry Hootycreek biscuits for a 50th birthday party on Saturday. The gift tags were home made.
* Made six loaves of bread. Two loaves were white bread with chia seeds and four were Wholemeal Bread with extra Goodness.
* Recycled lots of bread bags from a charity bbq.
* Saved all the washing machine water for each next load. Dried the sheets on the line and the rest on clothes horses.
* Picked our first head of broccoli for the year.
* Picked more lemons from our tree.
* Picked some silverbeet to go with a meal.
