In the time of the virus: day 47

Another day, another walk.  Just one more day left till we’ve completed our (virtual) walk around Arran.  Today we walked out to Saltford along the river path and then the railway path, then up across fields to Park Farm in Kelston (home of Bath Soft Cheese, and where we buy our milk and most of our cheese); then back home along the road and then the river path.  A glorious day of weather, perfect for a Bank Holiday weekend, if only people were able to enjoy it in a ‘normal’ way.

Back at home I felt energised to do some cooking, including baking a delicious chocolate sourdough cake (recipe thanks to Anne-Marie of zerowastechef) – the first ever vegan cake I’ve baked.  The recipe is definitely a keeper (and d-o-l says she’s made a ginger cake the same way, which she and oldest son also loved).  My first attempt wasn’t quite sweet enough for us, so I’ll more sugar next time, but the texture was great.  And very, very chocolatey, which of course is exactly what’s needed in a chocolate cake.

And I finished working through my mending pile, something that’s been with me and growing for a very very long time.  Most satisfying.

One more long walk tomorrow, and then we’ll have a ‘normal’ (lockdown normal) Sunday, and back into another regular week next week.

I hope you’re well and stay well.   See you again tomorrow xx

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
