Today and Dreaming of the Future
We are now back to work after our stay- cation and back to reality, but that isn't so bad. It has been a good day.
We had a lovely dinner, I made a blue cheese, griddled pear and walnut salad with herby dressing. I had the cheese board in the restaurant yesterday and couldn't eat it all. The blue cheese was brought home in my napkin. I have no shame :)
I am making the slugs happy by getting them drunk on beer, perhaps they will stay away from my vegetables now.
Home grown spinach and tomatoes. I can't tell you how much joy it brings to grow my own food.
My beans are climbing up the bamboos. I am really looking forward to eating these, and am already thinking of delicious things to do with them.
The washing is blowing on the line. I love picking in fresh smelling laundry dried outside.
Inspired by all you clever crocheters out there, I am planning a new project.
DREAMS OF THE FUTURE
I have also been looking online at lovely little cottages with lots of space around them, and no noisy neighbours. However this is not going to happen until I get my act together and tart this house up enough to go on the market. If we are going to move it will have to be while we have the health and energy to do the work on another house. I hate the whole buying/selling process, I find it extremely stressful, which is why I have been here many years longer than I had planned. We bought this house for the children to be near school and college. They are grown and gone now. It is time to move on.
I am setting myself the challenge of doing at least 1 thing a week towards this goal, and listing it on here......gulp, There, I have said it out loud. I'm hoping it will give me the incentive to get on with it. Today I listed some carpentry work on Rated People. We have been trying to get someone to replace wood on our doorframe, nobody seems interested in doing it because it is a small job, very frustrating.
I hope you all had a good day, welcome to claire, winkelscrazyideas and fran :)
