Good morning, everyone. It's a lovely, sunny start to the day although Dad's heating clicked in so it must be a bit chilly outside.
It was another pleasant day yesterday.
Chris came round for a chat and it was sunny and warm enough to sit out in the garden, a first for this week.
The Hare got back to me via a message I left with them and now Beth, Al and I have a table booked for Monday evening. It's the first time any of us have eaten out since February so we are, understandable, a bit nervous, but I've heard from others that the staff are doing the whole distancing thing very well indeed so fingers crossed.
On the way over to Dad's, I stopped off at the allotment (which looked a lot better in the sunshine) and found tomatoes, courgettes, apples and pears to take to Dad.
The pears are now wrapped in kitchen towel and sitting in the pantry to ripen, the tomatoes will go into a sauce I am making with meatballs for dinner tonight, the courgettes will also be eaten this weekend and the apples are in a bowl to be used as and when.
Rather excitingly, there are mini French beans on the plants now. Maybe, next weekend . . . they seem to be quite fast growing so you never know!
As planned, I'm going to spend some time there as much as I possibly can next week and Beth plans to join me when she can. It will make for a full week but not a 'busy' one, if you know what I mean, with loads of calories burnt which has to be a good thing, doesn't it?
Today will be an easy day with not a lot happening apart from some cooking, reading the paper, maybe a walk to the local mini Tesco, if necessary and the like. No complaints here.
I hope your day is good too. xx
