OK, these days were Thursday and Friday last week. I missed Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Today is Tuesday (day 12 of lockdown mark 2). I’m hoping to post again today, but will have to see.
Oops, missed a day. That was because yesterday was a mix of busy and tired – both in a good way.
We went for one of our favourite walks, through the woodlands on the Stourhead Estate. The sun shone and the colours were still autumnally glorious. It was a reasonably long walk, and when we got home I didn’t have a lot of energy left. But still managed to bake a batch of bread, make supper (a simple affair), and start that colourful garment again. And frog it again. Third time lucky I hope.
Today was another busy day, with sunshine again. Today I:
- Walked – down to the river to meet someone for coffee in the park. Then I walked home a longer way via the local shops for some food bits and pieces
- Kept house – sorted and hung washing to dry, brought it in and finished sorting it to put away. Plus all the normal Friday jobs (water the plants, clean toilets and basins)
- Cooked – this one most appropriate for Jewish food week – for the first time in many years I baked beigels (or maybe bagels to you). The two key things about them is the dough is stiffer than I would normally make it, and they are briefly boiled before baking. This batch is for tomorrow’s evening meal – a definite plan for Jewish food
- Relaxed – with a R4 play and some knitting. Is there a finer way to spend an autumn afternoon?
- Discovered – that when the greengrocers in one of our local shopping streets was taken over last year it transformed itself into a greengrocers with fruit and veg that look fresh and appetising (rather than tired as we previously the case) and a grocer’s shop selling Turkish food. Lots of lovely things there to try. I will definitely be going back.
