Dark clouds tinged with red, a sure sign that there is rain to follow.
Signs of the downpour as we have a drive, drying up and disappearing as quickly as it came. Shadowy outlines of the Memorial Tower in its majestic position overlooking four parishes of Stornoway.
Another dash to the car as the rain clouds once again formed and started to let down their load, yes more rain.
But not before getting some craft supplies, Harris Tweed remnants for card making and using on small projects. Along with some huge balls of Tweed all ready to make a rug on my return from holidays.
Mega crochet is the project I have in mind. Time will tell how this will work out, just need to find a crochet hook big enough for the task.
Finally I was asked about how I infuse my oils, so here goes. It is a very simple method but very tasty and has many uses.
I warm the extra virgin olive oil, heat but do not boil and then add the herbs. On this occasion I used shop bought herbs but generally I use herbs that I have dried from the garden. Pour into bottles and let cool before placing on the cap and labelling. Leave for a couple of weeks to work its magic and then strain though some cheese cloth or muslin if desired.
It is communion weekend for our Church so there are many services and fellowships to enjoy. A busy weekend but hopefully one where I will finally catch the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis there is a strong cosmic wind predicted which will hopefully create the spectacular phenomenon of the dancing ribbons of green red and purple. We intend to stay up and take a drive to the Butt of Lewis. I am going to do a little research now on the best way to capture some photos.
Have you any plans for the weekend?
See you soon.
