It's just after 9:00 and already this morning I have made a batch of blackberry and apple jam, some pastry for the pies for dinner, two loaves of soda bread, dough for ordinary bread (that's rising as I type) and the chicken filling for the pies is simmering away gently, making the house smell wonderful!
Whoever said Sunday was a day of rest?
Never mind, not a lot more to do and then I can take a break from kitchen duties and go and pick/pull the veg. Runner beans and carrots sounds good with chicken pie.
It was misty and moisty earlier, a typical autumn morning, and it is still dull now although the air has cleared. I wonder if we will have any sun - hope so for the tomatoes' sakes. After a second full Smith period warning from blight watch, I sprayed again and am hoping from day to do that they will be OK. It's quite a damp atmosphere which isn't helping at all. Ah, well, we will see. There's not a lot more I can do about it.
It has felt a long week this past week. It's rather early to feel weary but I think things will settle as I get used to my class and they to me. And now I'd better go and check that they have done their online homework!
Have a good day.
