We even put the kettle on it to make tea. Of course we couldn't have tea in a afternoon without something tasty to go with it. Therefore, my second picture is the scones for afternoon tea. The perfect combination for a rainy Autumn day. I love baking when it is cold outside, the heat from the oven warms the kitchen and makes it homely. The smells from the oven permeate through the house and gets the taste buds tingling. Perfection!
Victoria has had her scan and so we now know that Wilbur is to have a baby brother, he is really excited about it. My crochet hook has been on fire, hooking away at a baby blue blanket and a granny square throw for the nursing chair.
Number four is another indoor pursuit of the week and that is sewing burb cloths, bibs and bandanas for our new Grandson. It has been great fun sorting though the fabrics and reminiscing with my dear husband about when and where they were bought and for what purpose. Who would have thought that looking at fabric could evoke so many wonderful memories.
I have made a start, there is still a lot to be done. The fabrics are now sorted for when the weather turns to rain once again.
Finally, I thought I would share the last of the garden. The break in the weather has meant that we have been able to get out and about once more, restocking logs and kindling. The garden is looking a little sorry for itself and does need some extra planting to give it a little Autumn colour. The only thing we have left is some late carrots and mixed salad leaves.
I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My home for the weekly get together, Five on Friday. Pop over and join in the fun. I have just taken some painkillers for a raging toothache and intend to go back to bed and try to get some sleep. I am at the dentist later today. Have you got plans for the weekend?
See you soon.
