Good morning, everyone. It looks as if it might be a pleasant enough day today - the clouds are high and there's a fresh breeze. Not particularly warm yet, but you never know. Yesterday was pleasant at time but the fairly stiff breeze made it uncomfortable to sit out which was a shame. Fingers crossed for better weather to come.
Yesterday I made some dough and then wandered off to Aldi while the dough rose. When I got back it was about time to knock it back and I added some chopped walnuts and mixed seeds before baking and it was absolutely delicious. I posted about the recipe here.
The kitchen is in a reasonable state now (minor miracle) and ready for the cleaners. The rest of the house is getting there; most of the mess is superficial and easily sorted.
After an early morning tuition, I have time to potter around, sorting things out, without breaking into too much of a sweat which is a situation I hope I will always appreciate after so many years of weekend rushing around.
In the garden, the runners are running, the tomatoes are blushing, I'm picking sweet peas and anemones - and on the allotment I suspect the courgettes are romping away too. In a very small way, definitely the good life.
Before tuition, I want to start off another load so when I get back, it will be ready to knock back, etc. It's going to be another nut and seed effort, for some friends. I can see that I shall be making it fairly often.
Well, time is marching on and there's plenty to do so I'll wish you a happy and productive day and say goodbye for now.
