The east coast of Australia is experiencing an unusually cold autumn, as a result of the La Nina half of the El Nino/La Nina cycle. So far I’m staving off the bugs with big doses of olive leaf extract, but it’s a bit rough having winter weather this early. The house is staying nice & warm, thanks to the double brick, the north-east facing bedroom and the woodstove, but we are going to have to buy a load of firewood very soon – we didn’t expect to be using it this fast.
I’m starting to feel a bit nervous about the prospect of losing my Saturdays to the permaculture course… not because I’m not keen to do it (I am), but because I tend to do a lot of prep for the working week over the weekend, and now it will all be squeezing into one day. Time to start some Flylady routines, I think, in order to stay on top of things.
Recently I’ve been in the habit of emptying or loading the dishwasher while my coffee comes through (I use a stovetop espresso). I’m going to need to add: organising clothes for the next day on the night before work and a swish and swipe of the bathroom in the mornings, I think. I’m also considering menu-planning again… we did this while we had the Food Connect box, but I’ve been playing it by ear recently.
