The Best Of The Season
Note to oneself
When its raining in the morning, do ALL the outside jobs before coming indoors
then you wont have several hats and mitts drying in the kitchen
and coats dripping on your just washed floor.
yes, it was a wet start to the day, and it rained all day until it was time to walk the dog then it stopped,
It hasn't been cold at all, fairly mild in fact, the only thing heating the house is the Rayburn and I haven't lit the log burner for a few weeks.
What I love about this time of year apart from the glorious colours is the longer dark nights, daytime jobs are squashed into less day time hours, but those evenings mean its time to socialise, time for hobbies, time to do some learning and researching, evenings are spent making gifts, planning for the next growing season, trying out new things, its a time of year to celebrate and enjoy.
Talking of trying new things this evening I went along to a play with clay session
It was set up in the village hall Bovey Belle came along too
we were working with clay doing a pinch pot technique, the above photo is BB pinching her pot
my pot was taking on a different theme of its own,
There is a full post over on my craft blog of our work.
It was a very enjoyable session and we had a lovely evening, we have both signed up for the next session.
I didn't have time for dinner before I went so I had it ready to cook up when I got back
diced bacon, onions diced cooked potatoes and some re-hydrated mushrooms fried up together seasoned with pepper served with bread and butter and a mug of tea.
lovely end to the day,
I have a stall down in the village tomorrow, everything is ready to go.
