Full of Beans

Today lunch is organised such that there is no prep to do before we eat. I have beans and bacon baking in the oven, alongside some jacket potatoes. All we have to do is to get it out and eat it. That being so, should leave me sufficient time to ready myself to go out to spinning group. I shall not be spinning as I have not had time to prepare my wheel but I need to finish my knitting quickly anyway so will put the time to good use without my wheel. I’ll either continue with my little cowl (now nearing the mid point of the body) or I shall do some finishing on Warriston, it depends on what the light levels are like at the Heritage Centre. I’m picking up the needle tips that I need for the Hooded Cowl and may well enlist help in deciding on the yarn mix for that.

Last night saw more Internet shopping – this time I placed a wholefoods order, ensuring that I will have some of the more esoteric herbs and spices needed for our planned menus plus lots of seasonal baking goods such as ground almonds.

All that remains to concern me now are: fresh free range eggs, mushrooms, salad and fruit. I may get to town next week but that’s on the early side.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
