Came home from work this afternoon and this was the view I had from my back garden!
The light was exquisite. I am constantly thankful for this panoramic scene that I can enjoy day after day throughout all the seasons.
Then I sat for a bit and did some of this:
...which will be a tunic top to go over trousers. I'm no expert but I find it relaxing and it helps me to slow down and ponder! I'm keeping to the straight forward patterns at the moment, although I must just show you this, now that Christmas has gone!
For a special lady!
Then off I went with a small bag of bits and bobs for a local charity shop.....of course whilst I was there I had to peruse the books. My excuse being to look out for the Book Club reading books that are coming up. I was shown the back room in which were stacked crates of books, paradise! However, I could only gaze as there were so many piled up, I would have had to dismantle the whole area! my eyes did alight on a Nigel Slater book though....I love that man's mouth, forget the recipes, when he is on TV, I just stare at the curve of his mouth....hahaha, mad woman!
So here it is, such sensible recipes, food we all eat!
Photography is outstanding too!
However I believe my next culinary attempt will be Chinese tabioca! Got the ingredients (left by a previous medic....refuse the check the sell by date, sure it's fine...) Found a recipe online, it's chilled and is made with coconut milk....pictures may follow! (Bet you can't wait...)
Until then, have rambled for long enough, need to plate up the dh's dinner. He will be home after extended hours surgery...12 hours at work being all things to all people. I'll leave him to unwind in front of the TV in peace without me jabbering on (have learned the hard way! ) As for me I shall retire to my bed surrounded by my books and many thoughts, unwinding in my own way...with A.W.Tozer!
