Abundant Cottage Adventures Sunday 5th April 2020

The rain has continued in Melbourne but we see it as a blessing.  Our gardens are watered and the seeds Darren planted 4 - 5 days ago have started to pop up.  Here's how we spent our Sunday -

*  We watched our church service online through YouTube on our tv.

*  I made up a 2 litre bottle of foaming hand wash.  I used shower gel and cooled boiled water.

*  Megan and I brightened up our home with Easter decorations.

*  Darren and I went for a drive to the beach.  We sat in our car in the car park and had a lovely afternoon tea of grapes,  cheese,  dry biscuits,  ANZAC biscuits and a cup of tea.

How did you spend your Sunday ?

Has your Church service gone online ?



  1. Yes, our Church service has gone on line, there were a few tech issues at first, but yesterday was great. It is good how you can break into groups at the end and say Hi to a few friends. I enjoy it. Kept on muddling on here, few groceries today (Monday) some exercise and plenty of cleaning. Best wishes to you all. Tania in Hawthorn

  2. Hi Wendy,

    I spent the early morning in the veggie patch. Then I went on-line for church. Then I decided to 'church-hop' and 'attended' my cousin's church on-line, as the service started just as my church's finished.

    After that I made 'magic cake' as I had some eggs I wanted to use up and that recipe takes four eggs, and in the late afternoon I went back out into the garden again.

    Your Easter decorations are lovely as are your roses on the dining table.

  3. Yesterday was a difficult for me. My mother is very negative and I get depressed. Corona virus news 18 hours a day is too much for me. I paddled around doing little jobs. I do try to keep Sunday as a day of rest. It is an uphill battle though.

    God bless.

    1. Can you keep your mum busy doing other things to give the tv a break ?

  4. It was absolutely gorgeous weather here, so we were in the garden all day, and now I have a very light tan!

    I weeded the strawberry bed in 10-minute intervals (I have a weak spot in my back, which is expressly excluded in my health insurance policy, so I need to take care)
    hung 3 loads of bed linen laundry
    husband and dds washed both cars
    we did a 15-minute workout with a tv show (Nederland in Beweging - every day on Dutch national television. Aimed at elderly and infirm people, it's very gentle, but you do notice!).

  5. Hi I'm not sure where you live but I know its Victoria, Driving to the beach or anywhere else just for fun is against all the restrictions and carries a $1600 fine. Not something you should be telling your readers about.

    1. We didn't realise it was illegal if we didn't get out of the car.
