Today has been a creative day in a different sense of the word. I've taken this week off from sewing and have been enjoying catching up on all those things that get put to one side during the busy times of the year.
After breakfast I took myself off to the nursery to finally get my garden sorted. Since I started working from home, I've realised how important it is to have some extra space to relax in outside of the house. My garden has been a bit forgotten about and with some of the weeds now reaching head height, it was time to take action! A few new tools, some big pots, and a bunch of vegies and herbs got me started. The most exciting addition to my garden is my new worm farm! I've been determined to get a bit more environmentally friendly with how I live and the worm farm is one step towards this. It was so much fun setting it up, and I was surprised that I didn't freak myself out when putting the worms in!
After an afternoon in the garden, it was time for some baking. I received a big jar of muesli bar cookies from my lovely friend Erin for Christmas, they lasted a grand total of 3 days in my house (which I thought was pretty good). Part of the gift was a recipe card for the cookies, so this evening I decided to make up another batch. How good do all the colours look? They are baking right now and the house is filled with the delicious smell of toasted oats and honey.
There should be more days like this!
