Can't believe another weekend is over!! It was an early start this morning as all the dogs in the neighbourhood heralded the arrival of a hot air balloon overhead......perfect weather for it.....cold, clear and still....and after it was gone....quiet!
I got most the household stuff done yesterday and had a friend come for lunch.....whipped up a lasagne which will also last me for a few more meals...and a batch of scones which we had afterwards with jam and cream....well....not all of them of course!!. I am enjoying getting into some cooking lately...freezing meals for during the week when I can't be bothered to cook after getting home from work....today I roasted some pumpkin, sweet potato, onion and carrots and made soup.....it's perfect weather for it! That will be lunches for a couple of days this week......so whilst I haven't been spending much time in the sewing room I have been getting creative in the kitchen.
Came home from work on Friday night and found I (along with quite a few other households I suspect) was without phone and internet...yikes...cut off from the world....well I would have been except for the iPad and mobile...! Not sure if it was a planned outage or a mistake.....but it wasn't restored until late this afternoon.
Not much blog-worthy going on here....I did finish my Partridge in a Pear tree wallhanging.....and am really pleased with the way it turned out.
The church pew it has been photographed on has been languishing outside since I moved into the house two years ago....so a couple of weeks ago I de-spidered it and bought it in and put it where I had always thought it should go....hey...better late than never LOL It was in need of some TLC so I gave it a good sand and a few coats of Danish Oil and it's looking good.
Time for dinner and to settle in for the evening with some hand stitching and a bit of TV.....MotoGP is on the viewing list a little later with a bit of Downton Abbey beforehand......Loz living life on the edge....LOL
'Til next time......Lorraine
