Another Wednesday

Each week now seems to merge into another and, as others have said on other blogs, we are trying to establish some sort of routine to make sense of the time passing.

At the moment, this appears to centre around the once a week shopping day and what to have for supper.

P has been keeping himself occupied by giving his basement workshop a thorough overhaul. All his junk was moved into the storeroom, the walls re-rendered and painted and the cracks in the concrete floor have been filled in.  The shelves have been moved against another wall and the winter log pile has been cleaned up and rearranged.  He is now moving the ride on mower and other assosrted man-stuff back into the now tidy space.  Recently, a large branch fell from one of the sycamore trees behind the house so he has dragged that down into the garden and is happily sawing that up into logs for next winter.

I thought that I would occupy myself with some more sewing.  I had enough fabric left over from my dress to make a top or sleeveless blouse but, in the absence of a suitable paper pattern, I thought that I would make it up as I go along, using a top that I already have for the outline.   Not too sure that this was a good idea but I am halfway there.    It keeps me busy anyway.

So, if it's Wednesday then it must be sardine pasta tonight.

  1. Sounds like Lord Peregrine is on speed. Have you searched his pockets for amphetamines? By the way, when do you milk the cows and how big is your herd?

    1. His Lordship is like that all the time. It is exhausting just watching him.

    2. Message from my seed adviser Mr Tasker Dunham - apparently there are problems growing seeds from any hybrid vegetable plants. I have researched what he said and apparently it is true. Also, courgettes can effectively inter-breed with pumpkins, squashes and other similar vine plants. Please advise Mellors and Lord Peregrine too.

  3. Wednesday was one of my nursing home days. Even though we are starting to open up a little bit here and there I doubt I'll be 'there' for quite a while.

    Sardine Pasta sounds 'interesting- apart from a tin of sardines and some pasts what else do you put with/in it?

    1. I posted about this dish sometime last year. If you want to take a look at how I make it, just type fishy pasta into the blog search box at the top right of this page and hopefully you'll find it. I do tend to just make up these recipes as I go along so it never turns out the same each time!

  4. As with Cathy above I would love you to tell us how you do the Sardine Pasta - I love sardines and eat them regularly on toast as they are good for me. Pasta would be lovely - may we have the recipe please?

    1. Hi Weaver. If you see my reply to Cathy you should hopefully be able to find my recipe in a previous blog post. It is usually a bit hit and miss each time I make it!

  5. Peregrine sounds like me. I think I am more outside than inside the house.

  7. I hope everyone's safe and staying safe. I just read that the virus is mutating and getting much more dangerous. I don't want to alarm anyone but it's time to get right with God, cause this is getting downright scary! Stay home and stay safe, guys!
