A slow week
It's been a slow week.
My little mother has gone home and it is
a bit strange not having her in the house.
Our son and DIL have also been offered a flat
and will be moving into it in the next couple of weeks.
We shall be empty nesters once more.
Tete a tete - miniature daffodils
My GKB and I decided to drive to Outram one day
to see if the cherry blossom was out yet. It wasn't
so we opted for an ice cream instead. While we were
eating it I spotted the spring bulbs on sale
and decided to buy a pot for DIL to take to her new home.
They are getting past their best now but will be lovely
in a pot next season.
Chopped and ready to freeze
I was rostered on this week to do a meat dish for our church outreach and as the man in charge was to be away he asked me to do a big pot of potatoes as well. That was fine but what he failed to do was let the lady know who usually cooks the veges and she had done a big dish of roast potatoes. Oh well. For some reason our numbers were down so we decided not to use my spuds and I brought them home. I'll freeze them and turn them into a potato/vegetable bake dish for next week. AND I shall remember to tell everyone, lol.
I finally found a Jan Karon book and must say I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it a bit hard to get into as looking at the cover I imagined Mitford was an English village and couldn't work out why the author was using American words and expressions. Thank goodness for the internet, I looked up Jan Karon's books and discovered these ones are set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, phew. You don't realise how much easier it is to read something when you have it all in context rather than a wrong world view of it. I found it very hard to put this book down :)
Enjoy your week
