ahhh … a long weekend. Such bliss. We are …
:: cooking and eating our way through Hugh’s new cookbook – Veg – though Abby is not sure the recipes could be considered authentic Hugh seeing as he has lost his curly mop!
:: casting loving and longing looks at the two new gorgeous skeins of wool that found their way to Bootville on Friday – Beaverslide for arm warmers and Araucania for socks (red socks to wear with my newly dresdenised skirt!)
:: finishing the first sock and frantically knitting the second so that I may dive into that afore mentioned gorgeous wool
:: counting the emerging spring beans and hoping for magical ones
:: spending the afternoon in the garden with Julian, Abby and the feathered girls, still marvelling at the beautiful eggs they present us with every day, and watching with an amused and careful eye as Fu learns that she may WATCH the chickens, she may FOLLOW the chickens about, she may even SHARE their podge (when they let her – Benny has no qualms standing up to Fu) but she may not TOUCH the chickens – those chickens are OURS not hers.
:: wondering why it is that MY feet turn black when gardening in my old chewed up crocs, whereas Julian’s feet stay clean?
:: turning today’s eggs into pasta – and pondering the pasta drying rack Julian’s finally constructed me after 10 years of whining :-)
Wishing you a lovely weekend with those you love – and plenty of what you love too …
