Managed to get a bit of ick work done in the garden before the rain settled in - emptied & cleaned the bokashi bin, emptied and rinsed the leaking rainwater bin. My favourite part of cleaning the bokashi bin is when you get splashback in your face 😫 Also picked more beans and zucchini #gardening
I ate too much.
I am roasting a chicken for dinner. I haven't done this in many years (normally we get bbq chicken from a chicken shop). Keeping it simple, a bit of salt, rosemary and thyme, but we had a heap of bacon fat left over from breakfast so that got slathered all over it. Veg will be taties and beans from the garden, and pumpkin and carrot from the shop.
Mah buns look good! And they got a good rise on them too! #breadposting
Ok, so I did both hot buns and muffins. Guess I took a two hour lunch break today.
I am currently machine kneading my pizza dough and now I am really tempted to do hot buns today because it is currently SUNNY so we won't have to pay for oven power.
It's going to be sourdough-discard pizza night tonight. We have also eaten all the hot buns but I might put off making a new batch until tomorrow. Maybe at lunchtime I will make some jam-filled muffins - the last batch I made had ginger preserve in them and it turns out that's beyond my limited tolerance for ginger.
I cheered as what was clearly a genie emerged from the ring my great-aunt had left me.
"What wishes would you have me grant?"
"I wish for everyone to be cured and an effective vaccine to be available if needed!"
"That's a little beyond me. You'd need Lamp or higher."
"Oh. What CAN you grant in this situation then?"
"Every conference call will have multiple pet visits and your groceries will always replenish?"
"That would be nice."
I am updating my alt in case @daedalus's server goes down while the nbn is being excellent* again tomorrow.
Did an experimental round of #knitting on a sweater tonight. Got through it but don't want to push it so one round is enough for now.
