It’s the weekend, different rules apply.
An enjoyable relaxed time, especially after that announcement yesterday afternoon. Not a moment too soon. Concerned about what happens next, but let’s allow ourselves some time to bask in the knowledge that one particular nightmare will end.
Apart from that, I’ve:
- cleared and tidied one part of the garden (kitchen terrace) – now waiting for me to buy and plant some colour there
- enjoyed my visit to the Farmers’ Market to do my food shopping for the week
- begun another knitting project – I happened to place 2 balls of sock wool next to each other, and suddenly saw a combination I know will appeal to someone
- totted up how much money my knitted items raised for the farm last weekend – a total of £155 – not too shabby, as my friend in Canada would say. This brings the total I’ve raised so far to at least £520 and I think probably closer to £600+ – I didn’t keep track of the money paid direct to the farm’s online fundraiser when I had a stall at the farm back in August. I’m very pleased with this (my target was £250 in the year). It just goes to show how much small things can add up. And still almost 2 months to go – I already have orders for some more of the zigzag dishcloths for Christmas presents (and there are lots of lovely things sitting in Denmark waiting for us to visit one another to add to my sales: next year I guess)
- had a couple of good walks – one along the river, the other exploring an area of Bath I don’t know well
- decided with Malcolm this week’s food theme: Jewish food. There will be beigels (home made), chicken soup with knaidlach, chopped liver, chopped egg and onion, cholent, maybe challah. We’ll see what other treats we can think up / cook up
- acquired a large wooden frame for my allotment (left in a front garden with an invitation to ‘help yourself’; also a baby spider plant from Freegle. Plus an unexpected vigorous workout as I carried said wooden frame home.
