Today's efforts

Here's what's been happening today

3rd attempt at Sourdough Bread, using the starter from last weeks efforts. this one's plain & wholemeal flour, a lot simpler and is rising like it should

Mixed peel, including some of the lemons from the abundance LV has kindly given us, ready for the big pudding steam off next week! I've got ready my sultanas, raisins & currant mix and the Holgates nut Brown Ale - hopefully the special ingredient.

Sewing panels of the new skirt together, using the first of the material bought a year ago in Hoi An, Vietnam.

The trial oil on canvas painting is feeling like it's near complete...

Repairs on the Acrylic painting damaged from the leaky ceiling (we thought the landlord and/or agent had fixed since the previous times we told them) were not a success. Time to visit the art store and see if there is anything available.

Tonight, laksa - with tofu, straw & button mushrooms, pak choi, snow peas, rice & egg noodles (so good together) and the paste (sometimes you just can't make everything from scratch)

And maybe if I have time some Lemon Buttermilk Cookies with Passionfruit icing, to use up the rest of the passionfruit juice.

and the soundtrack for this afternoon....
Tears for Fears - Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92)
Talking Heads - Best of Talking Heads
The Art of Noise - The Best of the Art of Noise

and for washing up:
Sonic Youth - The Eternal
