As we go further into lockdown, some nice stuff for you…..
~ mushrooms anyone? These have appeared in our lawn, I’m guessing from the tropical weather we had earlier in the month. Not that I’ll be picking them to have on toast for brekky!
~ I’ve enjoyed the last of the hydrangeas. Always sad to see them go.
their colourful blooms fading to those burnished greens
and the last of the roses too
~ Since isolation started I’ve done some cooking/baking making casseroles, pasta dishes and focaccia
and tried some GF friands which were very successful and went to Mum (they’ve set up some shelves just outside the foyer where families can leave care parcels for residents; the staff periodically check and deliver). It was cool at the start of the week so cooked up some chicken and sweet corn soup. Sun has been shining the last few days, so had soup and the last of the focaccia out on the deck.
~ We had a brilliant sunrise the other day; I was nearly late to meet my walking partner as I kept stopping to take photos
and while out walking its been lovely to see some native blooms
~ The Golfer noticed a very good deal for dishwasher tablets with one of “those” internet companies the other day and as we were down to our last two tablets he ordered “the deal”. It arrived a day later……we’ll have sparkling dishes for months and months and months….
Things were getting a bit grim on the toilet paper side of things too, with only 3 rolls left in the cupboard and none to buy every time I ventured to the shops. Sent The Golfer out for the early shop (he’s an over 60) and he came up trumps!
~ I think the Government’s message has come through loud and clear as I find myself, while watching modern day tv shows, ridiculously thinking, “Oh no, you’re standing too close together – get 1.5m apart!” and “NO! NO! No hugging!!”
We will survive. Keep checking in with family and friends, take care of yourself, eat well, exercise and get good sleep, and support your local quilt shop!
