|Taken in Dad's garden last week|
Well, I am proud to announce that the washing/ironing remains up to date. I can't remember the last time it was like this for more than just a few days! It should stay like this too from now on with just the occasional blip.
I did pick the first tomatoes yesterday, as expected, and had them with a salad for lunch. They were delicious! It is always lovely, picking the first fruit and I have enough for this evening (not loads but enough) and also to give a few to Beth too. There are still red ones to use up - not a patch on the others but nice enough and certainly not for wasting!
I started the next knitting project and yes, it's definitely more of a challenge. It's double knitting but the stitch is Aran so until I 'got' the pattern it was slow work but now I know what it's all about it is moving faster. I think it will be very nice and certainly good and warm although I am concerned about the sleeves which I think might be too 'chunky' for a little one. I might do plain sleeves or just have the central pattern running up the middle - I will think about it anyway!
Regular readers might remember that last week I had a go as making apricot jam in Thermione. It wasn't a total success in that the set was very, very soft although the flavour was wonderful. Yesterday I had some with home made yogurt and you know what - it was absolutely gorgeous. So that's desserts sorted for a while!
Today Beth is round and we're doing crafty things. Looking forward to it.
And finally - food.
Breakfast: toast and jam, apple.
Lunch: not sure
