Vintage in Purple

How has your weekend been, mine was very quiet. I went off to church this morning and was running a bit late, so was lucky there was a park right in front of the church. I got there part way through the choir rehearsal of the anthem and it was one I was comfortable with so that was okay. Just had enough time to put on my gown and head into church.
Back home and did a couple of loads of the dreaded washing and still too cold to actually hang outside with any hope of drying. I put the essential work clothes for hubby and son in the dryer and the rest on the clothes rack.
Made a casserole for tea which we ate about 7.30 p.m. after they got back from their trip to the Mallee. They've bought some stumps back for the fire, yeah!!!, we were getting quite low on firewood and stumps always burn well and put out good heat.
I had better stop chattering and get on with this post as I have another one to schedule for tomorrow.
