It's mildish and very dull outside and the forecast is for light rain. Ho hum!
However, it's lovely and cosy inside and the house smells warm and delicious with a chicken carcass simmering in the slow cooker and a tomato and roasted red pepper soup in Thermione, just needing to be reheated at lunch time. It's quite surprising how far a small roast chicken can stretch with only a very little extra thought, isn't it?
Just one more comment about the granny square pattern - Marjorie, quite rightly, pointed out in the comments that an English treble stitch is the same as a US double crochet so I though, to make it quite clear, I would highlight it here as well. Thanks, Marjorie!
It was a lovely day yesterday with Beth and Alex round for lunch, Beth staying longer for a good old chat about this and that, some of it quite serious. We went through various financial stuff and simplified things (not going into any more details), discussed music we would want for our funerals (yup, it was a bit random) and all sorts of other bits and bobs. Really enjoyable; thanks, Beth and Alex, for coming over. xx
I got all the ironing done and even put away before they arrived so that was off my conscience so I was able to spend the evening doing the usual homey stuff. Nice.
Today, I think I will change the sheets and get that all sorted, I want to clean a few windows (actually, maybe 'want' isn't quite the right word, 'need' is more truthful), I have a bit of finance to sort out and it's circuits. All nice and productive without anything too startling!
I hope your Monday goes well and that you get everything done that you want (or need!) to do. Take care, stay dry and be happy, everyone. xx
It's a dullish day here, too. It could go either way later. I suppose that's one of the joys of UK weather.ReplyDelete
It is - especially at this time of year. Very changeable. xxDelete
Very dull here and it’s supposed to be the first day of Spring. Never mind, I have plenty of sewing to be getting on with. CatrionaReplyDelete
Spring is obviously sprunging elsewhere at the moment!! xxDelete
Grey and rainy here, as well, Joy. I hope we will see some warmer weather very soon. XReplyDelete
Me too - this damp weather can feel chilly, even when the thermometer says it isn't. We need some warm sunshine . . . xxDelete
I actually managed to get outside and do a little clearing at the bottom of our garden this morning and washing was hung out for a while. I'm glad you managed to sort out your flour but I didn't know about freezing it. I will remember that tip.ReplyDelete
An exciting year for you Joy with all the improvement projects . It will be good to see the progress. Your granny square blanket looks great. Isn't it amazing how one type of crochet square can be used in so many ways. Have a lovely week x
It's a very useful thing to know, isn't it?Delete
It will be interesting to see how the year progresses with all the projects and changes. Exciting too.
I think the same as you, March is flying by. The older I get the faster time flies by....ReplyDelete
You're right - it is quite age related . . . shame, isn't it? lolDelete
Dull, snowing off and on, and a cold biting wind. Tomorrow we are supposed to get another snow fall that just might amount to more than a skiff as Harvey would say. Time is flying by and like you and Gil I really believe it is age related.ReplyDelete
You've had so much snow this year - or is that normal for where you are? I hope it's not soo much and that things warm up soon.Delete
If you want some practice on cleaning windows you are quite welcome to come here and do mine for me. 😂😂 xxReplyDelete
lol - we could swap!! xxDelete
