More Tomatoes!!

Today was the day to take down the Tree. Usually I do it before New Years but this year was different. I'm not fussed about 'stuff' like I used to be.. so I think I'll just leave it a bit longer..besides I think it looks pretty.
In actual fact I was too busy today. First thing this morning I just finished getting The Patchwork Apple all 'sorted' for my last SALE ever...starting tomorrow. I just got home and there were unexpected visitors from Germany. Lovely family who came to see our cherries. So that was my day. Relaxing at least with a pub lunch as well. I was planning to clean windows not really!

And this (below) is about all I did during my break... besides getting food prepared it seems. Sorry but I think that is the biggest hassle, every day (especially when one is home) and one's husband is home for the preparation or rather the thinking-of-what-to-prepare for each meal....
Anyhow I did get some tomato sauce made!!! It took awhile.... in between doctor visits, suppositories given :/ (to the poorly-not me), flat tyres, water troubles in the garden, cherries to pick etc. etc. but I managed to make 5kg. -8 bottles. I know, big deal! It was a big deal for me, haven't made sauce for years. Jessica has already taken a bottle home and we had pasties for dinner last night, just to enjoy the sauce!! After all that the very next day, our Italian friend returned with more tomatoes!!
Sarah and I are obsessed with tomatoes on toast...just the smell starts you off then the taste. Delicious especially with the Lobethal Bakery's Tuscan loaf!! I can't keep this up...

Happy New Year.. a new year a new beginning!

Happy New Year to you all!

Had a very quiet one. Kym has been sick with a Kidney stone attack. Ambo. ride to hospital and a visit to Dr., all around New Years. Hes back on deck today at last. Right in the middle of cherry harvest too. Meanwhile I've enjoyed long walks and catching up on some DVDs and lots of visits from Jemima during my break..back to work Tuesday and I'll miss her. It won't be for long...

I am closing the Woodside store by end of Feb. Moving back home and will be on Line as well as doing a few Quilt Fairs around the country for the year. Thats the immediate plan anyhow.

Our Sale begins Tuesday 4th. with 30% off absolutely everything with some items even 50% off.

Store opens @ 9.30am until 5pm.- Tuesday to Saturday SALE will run until sold out.

Hope to see you some time. Jane *

This is quite fitting for my 101 st. post, I reckon!!!
