A good Saturday

Mr L spent much of his day in grinding down the old concrete Rayburn plinth. He has given up for now and ordered a more powerful SDS drill. Me, I passed the time in knitting on a long stitch scarf that I cast on last night in order to make a second entry in the Show class for “Item knitted from handspun”. It is finished and I love it.

I made a simple supper of fresh Tagliatelle with some fresh pesto that I bought from Kirkness & Gorie on Thursday. I griddled some chicken breasts and asparagus and a few cherry tomatoes on the vine. Washed down with Pinot Grigio, it was delicious. It’s a Spring Tide and the tide was out so we walked supper off with the dogs in the bay.

We found a jelly fish the size of a dustbin lid : Mr L’s size 10s and Nell included for scale.

UPDATE: Jellyfish is formally identified as a Lion’s Mane.

All in all, a good day. Tomorrow I shall be busy washing and blocking various pieces of knitting. I have starch and I know how to use it. Oh, yes. (The current madness will cease next week – the Show is on Friday)

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
