Here are some snaps from one of my first Saturday in weeks when I have not been been working. So it began with a much needed long sleep in.
Around 10am - I never take for granted my first cup of tea made by my lovely D. I take it to the computer and check out my blog, e mails, world news etc. While D messes with the boiler as we have no hot water coming from the taps, a bit of fiddling and its up and running - I can finally go and have a shower
Around 11am, As I dry my hair with a towel, I take a peek through the back window. Thoughts are turning to the garden and perhaps some harvesting.
Around 12am, I inspect and pick some plums from our fruit tree and give some to our neighbours - left and right, as we have way to many for us.
Around 1pm - D decides instead of having a lazy Saturday, he would weed the slabs in the front of the house, and somehow ropes me into helping him. It looks much better now that it is done.
Around 2pm - We both sit down and have a deserved slice of homemade Blueberry and Apple Galette (I will share the recipe soon).
Around 3pm - I decide to do some laundry and more laundry.
Around 4pm, one of my elderly neighbours comes round with a bag full of runner beans, all topped, tailed and sliced. Really generous and really kind. He could see our green beans are a sad selection this year.
Around 5pm, as its a long weekend with the Bank Holiday I make some vegetarian 'facon bacon' for us to lunch on during the day. Its good and lasts a fortnight, as long as it is refrigerated.
Around 6pm, I hover over my selection of vegetarian, vegan and general cookbooks looking for inspiration for week day meals.
Around 7pm, I perch myself in front of the computer for today's blog post which is about #EatYourGreens vegetarian and vegan recipe submissions which make use of green vegetables.
Around 8pm, we decide on what movie to watch from our DVD collection. We watch 'Seven Psychopaths'.
Around 10pm . blowing out the soy scented Coconut candle to go to bed.
Its been interesting cataloguing my day in hours, not the most exciting, adventurous or glamorous, but hey that is me. Did you participate in Photo An Hour? If not, would you be interested? Photo and Hour is hosted by Jane and Louisa.
