I woke this morning to some beautiful red skies, a delight to see albeit a warning for bad weather if the old saying is to be believed.
A start has been made on my Grandsons school project and I must admit I have quite enjoyed the process. I have found a wonderful old Scottish Teatime recipes book which I thought I would share with him and using whatsapp maybe do some baking together. I have sorted out a few leaflets and books that might be useful so I will be walking to the post office later.
Yesterday we went into town to do a food shop, I have been trying for awhile to get a delivery slot to no avail. I bought extra veg and prepared some for the freezer and UHT milk so I am hopeful that we won't need to go for some time. We do feel blessed having the finances to be able to buy extra food and of course the room to be able to store it.
I have just made a mixed seed loaf, fresh from the bread making machine that will hopefully last for 3/4 days. I usually make bread twice a week. Todays lunch was homemade coleslaw, a salad with homemade honey and wholegrain mustard dressing and asparagus wrapped in ham in cheese sauce. I can report it was delicious and very filling. A side of melon and strawberries was also added. Soup is on the menu for supper, homemade leek and sweet potato.
I am working on another project with the Church to bless some of the congregation with a gift bag, so will make soap and some cards tomorrow for it.
The deep cleaning programme continues, this time the shelves, drawers and cupboard in the lounge. I was surprised how little needed to be thrown away so that made me happy.
Gerard is finally feeling a little better so it is hoped that he will be able to start getting the materials together for us to start working on the dolls house. A lot of the things we will be needing are stored in the outbuilding and he knows where it all is. We are getting by a day at a time, each day a day nearer to our dreams of meeting up with the family once again. There is certainly no hardship in eating good food and passing the day crafting.
Hope all is well with you and that the lockdown wherever you are is bearable.
See you soon.
