Time has flown by once again. Our little cottage is now back to normal, clean and tidy after the departure of our visitors. It is so quiet, so the radio has been on quite loud for a couple of days to compensate. All the linen for the beds and towels have been washed, dried and ironed, all ready for our next lot of visitors. I have all kept myself busy in the kitchen batch cooking for the freezer. I have also made a start on drying out some of the herbs ready for Winter stews and casseroles. We have had an amazing crop of rhubarb this year, so I have cooked several batches ready for crumbles later in the year. The garden is a little slower than usual in producing salad crops, I think that may have been the awful weather we had in May. We have had several days of sun and it is starting to look a lot better, so I am hopeful for a good crop.
We did have a wander around the garden centre when we did our trip to town last week. We came back with a beautiful lavender plant, which is smelling divine already. I do miss the lavender we had in our old garden so it is nice to have it back in our herb garden.
I am blessed with a wonderful son in law who is good with technology so both the computer and my phone is now back up and running. I am now having problems with my camera and downloading photos, I am sure I will work it out eventually. There have been so many updates of late it is hard to keep up with it all.
The doorstep blessings project has come to an end as we start to emerge out of this lockdown and try to get our lives back on track into a semblance of normality. I feel honoured to have been part of the project and know that it gave such a lot of pleasure to so many. It gave me something to do and kept me busy so I am thankful. I am now moving on to making a start for Christmas. I have made a list which changes as I gather my thoughts or find a new pattern but it is almost firm now so I intend to start gathering the materials together for each project and making a start.
I will leave you with a beautiful photo of a rainbow from last week. We are blessed with living in a beautiful part of the world but sometimes we don't always take the time to appreciate the beauty.
As always I thank you for your visit to my humble blog and thank you for your comments on my last post. I found it really interesting to learn about the restrictions in your areas. Vaccination seems to be the answer and thankfully it does seem to still work against the different variants at least for now. We were finally allowed to sing at Church last Sunday, but I must admit it did seem strange singing with a mask on. Hope all is well with you and that life is good.
See you soon.
