Wow the morning has flown by, been busy the the last lot of persimmons that where finally ripe enough to preserve. Only got 4 little bottles which I am going to give to my Japanese girlfriend Pina. She tasted some of the first batch and loved it. ATM she is in Japan for 3 weeks visiting her elderly parents, Her Mom is not well at all and now has to sort out their little unit. Never an easy task <3

This post as the title suggest is about revisiting old goals, bloghopping I found a post wondering why we have gone all quite about our attempts at prepping. And that got me thinking again about my goals and the progress we have made in the last few months. Maybe not enough progress at the farm, but being a 6 hour drive it does make it hard. Here in Sydney we are faring much better.

One of my weak points is stashing accounts and papers in draws and when the draw is full, I would just move on too the next draw. But now Rina has no more excuses and needs to declutter her life and those draws. I spent a few days just going through 18 years worth of paperwork, the task just to big for one sitting. Over the years I have made a few attempts at this, finding only the last few years needed a lot of clearing. How long are you suppose to keep records??? 5 years I hear you say ...

Just posted on my new blog, thought you might want to go have a little look at the scarves that I knitted over the weekend. Generally this week has been all about tidying up and cleaning around here. Not the normal housework but the carport which is crammed full of stuff. Then on to the sewing/craft cupboard, sorting out the magazines which my husband threatens to throw away. How could he they are all full of ideas and patterns, you know the how to make a quilt, knit a sweater and make a tote bag. They are dear enough as is ... there is no way I would let him touch my Homespun and Country Thread magazines. Then sorting out the stash ... Well you better follow the link and check out the scarves Have a wonderful day Rina
