Relaxing on the sofa…. thinking about how exactly I’m going to tackle deboning a rabbit …
Then we watched ‘My Week with Marilyn’
How was your weekend? What did you get up to? We had our last Travelling Wares Market at the Powerhouse (we will be back in early August)... and what a market it was! Lots of lovely customers came by to say hello… plus lots of new faces too!
Come pack up time there wasn’t really too much left on the trestle tables, which makes sense as to why we were a little run off our feet!
At home we then sanded the dining room floorboards getting them ready for the white washing that I will be doing this week- I’m on a mission – I want to get the inside of our house completed before we get married, and there isn’t too much time left!
We then lit and watched the soon to be marble clad and finished fire place (you guessed it – it’s on the ‘To Do’ list also!)
Sunday morning I managed to squeeze in some time to flip through a new/old book I just picked up on Basketry. I find the older I get the more I’m loving baskets
and the more I seem to buy!
I then decided to make some shortbread using our passionfruit from the garden and the most amazing lemons from the market. I don’t usually bake biscuits, actually, I never bake biscuits, I’m more of a cake baker, yet I decided to give them a wurl. Nothing like tea and biscuits to lift the spirits of renovating! Note, there is no recipe for this shortbread; I wasn’t that impressed and Timothy O claimed they tasted like chicken
(…. we did have a roast chicken the night before….maybe I should of cleaned the oven before I baked biscuits…eek!)
I then cleaned and rearranged and cleaned some more (is there such a thing as ‘Wedding Nesting’ ? ? !!), then before I knew it it was time to get dinner happening – Rabbit from the farmers market with Polenta. I decided to not take photographs of me deboning a rabbit, though if you are interested here is the link that I used as a guide.
Then we watched ‘My Week with Marilyn’ which I thoroughly enjoyed…. though I did think a lot about that little rabbit.
P.S There will be a post on white washing floors this week. I know there are a few of you out there that want to know more, so check in this week!
