And here we go on the last weekend of the Easter holiday. I intend to enjoy it in my own quiet way, between planning and so on.
Yesterday, when J came over, we had a lovely time, chatting and knitting. J makes socks too! She's also a member of OUSA so a good gossip was in order. We laughed, giggled and rambled our way round four hours that went incredibly quickly. She got some of her sock knitted. I gor some of mine knitted and then had to undo it because I'd dropped a stitch in a place where I couldn't rescue it with a crochet hook. Doh!
We are going to do it again because it was great fun!
Today George comes. There's a fine crop of weeds awaiting his attention, a patch of grass to cut and lots of similar bits and bobs. On the hob there's the startings of a vegetable chili which is this week's way of using up the leftover vegetables. It will have onion, chilli, red pepper, sweet potato, carrot, celery, cauliflower and mushroom - and red beans. Maybe also pop in a handful of peas from the freezer for the colour factor. And I might throw in some red lentils because I usually do. Tomorrow perhaps we can have some in wraps with yogurt and a salad (must check if DG likes wraps) and I can have the rest later on in the week as a main meal. I haven't made chili for simply ages.
What I'm NOT going to do is go into school. I am so glad that I went in before Easter. It's not all completely ready, I know, but it's OK, it's going to be fine.
I am going to finish off the little knitted V neck jumper I am making and get it all sewn up and ready to give to L on Monday morning. And start R's second sock. Hopefully this one will go a little more smoothly!!!
