Sunday Sevens – 11th February

Last Sunday was the first day this year it was dry enough to go out on my bike. It was, however jolly chilly…

I’m not complaining though, since I’d much rather have dry cold days than rain and damp. Although it hasn’t been dry by any means, most of the wet stuff has come down as hail or sleet.

On Tuesday, we saw the first snow we’ve had all winter. But although it snowed for much of the day, I was hard pressed to find any that settled.

Prettier than most planted pines and the floor is divinely springy.

I don’t think I’d have been brave enough, even in my 4×4, to drive across.

On Tuesday I had a trip to the dentist, so Lovely Husband went to the auction on his own and brought me back a present…

It was fun looking through it at all the old styles we thought we looked so fabulous in back in eighties…

There were also some interesting sections on crochet techniques, that I’ll refer to in future, and even a few patterns I may consider making. But not this…

My discovery of the week, was basil tofu. I’ve never really tried tofu before, but in my vegetarian explorations I discovered it. I love it and can’t wait to try some other flavours.

On Thursday, my new batch of yarn was finally ready to be picked up form the mill.

Since then there’s been a lot of ball winding and label attaching…

It’s been another week when we’ve had every sort of weather – except a heatwave. Most of this weather has been the sort of stuff you want to hide indoors from. The exception was last Sunday when I made the most of the sunshine and finally did some gardening – cutting back the fuchsias and clearing this flowerbed.

During the week after Christmas I kept looking out of our bedroom window wondering what a small white patch on our back lawn was. On New years eve I finally remembered it while I was out in the garden and went to investigate. It turned out to be this… Continue reading “Sunday Sevens – 7th January”
