Just sharing a short post on some of things I was doing when at home last week.
Last week we had a big storm and a LOT of rain, so I spent a bit of time indoors knitting and baking. The boys love to eat homemade cookies so I try to always have some on hand. This week it was shortbread which I cut into various 'space' themes using my rocket, sun, moon and star cutters. D was also learning about the solar system at school so this fitted in well for his school lunches!
The knitting was my first attempt with circular needles. I've been a knitter for years but for some reason never used circular needles. Never knew how easy they were! This project was a beanie (Rikke hat) and the wool had been recycled from an old hat and scarf I'd made a while back for D but he didn't wear ("too itchy" because of the wool). I like the hat and am pleased with it. Now onto another one in different yarn.
I also made up a big batch of baked granola. I used honey and sunflower oil to oven roast the seeds, nuts and oats, then add various dried fruits. It tastes great with some greek yoghurt and milk. Sometimes I use maple syrup instead of honey, but as our stock of maple syrup is running low I chose to use honey instead (still have a good amount of it from when we had our bee swarm).
Talking of honey, I will be sharing with you my efforts to purify beeswax in a forthcoming post..
