* Picked tomatoes, beans, raspberries and the last of the lemons for the season.
* Cooked up some tomatoes from our garden. There was enough for two meals of spag bol sauce. I've frozen the sauce for future use.
* Cut up a cereal packet liner to use as go between for crumpets, chops and hamburger patties.
* Made a double batch of pumpkin scones for the freezer. I used cooked, pureed pumpkin from the freezer that was bought when pumpkin was in season and really cheap.
* Made a double batch of raspberry and white chocolate muffins to sell to a cleaning client. I also sold two dozen eggs to this client.
* Topped up my car with petrol when it was 98 cents a litre without a docket. Every time the fuel gauge drops to 3/4 full, I keep topping up. Buying petrol this cheap is a real blessing to many people's budgets right now.
* Gratefully received a couple of fuel discount dockets in the mail from a blog reader. Now that we have three cars in the family and very little spent in the supermarket, these dockets are a blessing to us.
* Gratefully received some card making supplies from my lovely friend Leesa. I received some stickers, embellishments, pretty papers, stamps and lots of other bits and pieces.
* Made lots of female birthday cards using supplies I had on hand. Over the next few months I'll concentrate on making some male cards. My stocks are getting low.
* Saved some tissue paper and gift bags from belated birthday presents Megan received.
* Kept the evap. cooling off most of the week. The mild weather has helped.
* Did the usual water saving tasks ( washing machine and shower water ).
* Ate out of the pantry and freezer. I only spent $4 at the shops on milk this week.
* Picked lots of lavender from our garden. I'll be drying the bunch and using it in my next batch of soap I make.
