Another week has flown by where I have easily filled my days. I am thankful for the harvest the garden room has produced and we have finally pulled the last of the tomatoes. There were still a lot of green tomatoes but I didn't think we were going to do any better with them so gave in and made green tomato chutney. All ready to go with some tasty meat and cheese over the holiday period.
Also from the kitchen is a citrus loaf, meringue, apple and blackberry crumble top tarts, a quiche and finally a trifle.
I have been blessed with gifts not only in the post but doorstep gifts and visits to the garden. My dear blogging friend Betsy, sent me a beautifully knitted pair of socks. I am in awe of her and anyone else that can knit socks it is such a skill, one of these days I will master the art. I live in hope that one day Betsy and I will meet up and it would be nice to sit and learn how to master the skill of sock knitting. They have such an intricate pattern and the colour is a delight, screaming Autumn. I am so excited to give them a test run and wear them.
Scones, magazines and a family of ladybirds appeared on the doorstep and we have had the joy of over the wall chats with neighbours.
I fill my days easily with a craft project or two, I have several secret projects on the go and am enjoying the process. Have you started any Christmas crafting?
As more and more rules are been put into place as the Covid numbers rise, my parents anxiety levels rise so we have decided to go for a visit in the hope that this will be uplifting for them. They do need some jobs doing so that is also the perfect reason to go. It will be good for me to know that they are ready for both the Winter and for Christmas. Who knows what the next round of restrictions will bring so better to go now in case we are unable to later. A few days away will do us good too.
Hope all is well with you and that you are coping with the Covid regime of restrictions, it is strange times that we are living in. I do thank you for your visit here and know that your visit and comments are greatly appreciated. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
