Morning, everyone. I woke at stupid o'clock for the first time in a while but, to be fair, I went to bed quite early and fell asleep quickly so I thing I've had my fair share of sleep.
It's not cold out at the moment and it's dry. We ended up with some lovely sunshine round here yesterday . . .
The photos have come out too red - it was closer to a very intense pink really.
I'm glad I caught it.
Beth and Alex came over for a roast dinner and a chat. It's pretty much the only time I have a roast dinner - roasting for one is a bit lavish - although I do freeze leftovers. It's not quite the same thing though, without the cooking experience.
(not complaining, just saying!)
In the afternoon, we talked holidays. For several years now, the three of us have wanted to take another holiday at Center Parcs together. Covid put paid to that for a while but it's time to think again so we looked up some prices, etc, for later on in the year - September/October time, maybe. It will be nice if we can get it organised although it's not so simple now Beth has to book time off.
I didn't do much else except for sorting out parts of the fridge. The top shelf and the doors were rather crammed with sauces, jars, etc - the stuff that needs to be chilled once open. After chucking away everything that was going fluffy, I made a note of what was left, wiped everything down and put it all back neatly. Another tick on the list - yay!
The rest of the fridge was fine, it was just the jars, etc.
Today is the usual Monday. There's a Snippet first thing (a short exercise routine) and later on it is Circuits at the studio.
I'm leaving any washing for Wednesday so all the stuff I want to take with me to Five Lakes is clean and not re-worn.
I often do a food shop on Mondays but I won't need to do one this week. I'm out of milk but have some almond milk in the freezer so can have that, if needed. I'm also out of carrots but will ride that disaster! :-)
I'm trying to think of what I fancy decluttering today. I do need to sort through my shoes and there's always the chunky/Aran yarn, if I can find the boxes.
Also, I must start to gather things together for next weekend. It won't be complicated but I must remember things like swimming cossie and sportswear. If I do forget anything crucial, it's only an hour for both home and back but, obviously, I would rather not!
I'm sure I will find stuff to fill the time . . . on the other hand, next week looks super busy in places so I will work to feel no guilt at taking it easy in advance. 😉
What are your plans for today.
The sunset pics are very beautiful. This morning I attended week 3 of a sewing class - I'm a complete novice so watch this space on that one !ReplyDelete
This afternoon I need to clean downstairs thoroughly, the sunshine shows up the dirt. What I'd prefer to do is settle down with a book but with dogs in the house I had better not put the cleaning off.....

It's the windows that get to me - they are so mucky outside at the moment. Maybe they ought to go on my List! :-)Delete
Sewing classes sound brilliant and I really hope you are enjoying them.
That really is an amazing sunset.ReplyDelete
I hope you've had a good day in which ever way you have chosen to occupy yourself. Days like this are nice ... no guilt, just enjoy xx
It was lovely - a really pleasant day, thanks you. xxDelete
Lovely sunset photos. I really enjoy days where I do not have to do much, so I hope you enjoy yours.ReplyDelete
They're good, aren't they? Most enjoyable. xxDelete
Oh wow Joy. That sunset is stunning. I didn't know that Almond milk could be frozen. That's handy to know.ReplyDelete
I had to look it up. Milk is the thing I waste the most so, before Christmas, I bought some little 250 ml bottles with the aim of dividing my cartons into smaller amounts and freezing them.Delete
You should thaw frozen milk in the fridge and allow a full 24 hours to do so.
Your trip sounds like fun. Have a great time!ReplyDelete
I'm very much looking forward to it, Chris, thank you. It's just two full days but I will pack so much into it.Delete
What a beautiful sunrise! I'm glad you were able to get photos of it. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
It was stunning. The colours aren't quite right but not to worry. xxDelete
