I have several jobs on the go at the same time. I flit from one to the other. The days are longer so there is opportunity to get a lot done. First off today, after a coffee of course, breakfast. Avocado and mushrooms on toast. Deeelishus.
Then I stripped the bed and put a load in the washer. This is the quilt I made in 2013. It has never been used, due to cats sharing my bed. I don't want all my hard work being ruined by cats scratching about on it. Oscar stays outside overnight in the warmer weather. He has a shelter out there. Mayze stays in but likes the chairs to sleep on. I think it's safe to get this out for a few months at least. 620 squares if I remember rightly, all sewn together by hand.
I seem to be getting through lots of cat food. As well as three meals a day, the cats have a running buffet of dry nibbles, and water, so those bowls need to be replenished. When it's starting to get dark I put extra out for the hedgehogs. Last night I watched three of them munching away. This morning the plates were empty.
There are a lot of birds in my garden at the moment. They tend to come around when the coast is clear and finish off what is left.
I am sure I can fit a bit more into my beak.
My friend gave me a tub of this yoghurty stuff last week, and some strawberries. It went down a treat on my breakfast cereal. I loved it so much that I went to M & S and bought some more. Try it, you will love it. I believe they do different flavours. The apple one is yummy.
This is an ongoing work in progress. It's like a jigsaw puzzle where any piece can fit anywhere, depending on how you imagine it as a finished picture. I can see that this part of it will take longer than making the pieces.
For the rest of the day I will be sorting out my stock for the Summer Fair on Saturday. Bagging and pricing things up. There won't be room on the table for the bigger pictures, but I hope people will buy the smaller ones, and the other crafty things I have made over the last two years.
A Billy dog walk is planned for 4pm today. The washing is in and dry now.
We are close to the end of the month. How are the walking group doing? Time to check in on Wednesday. I have just scraped in with the five month target of 416 miles. Still three days to go to top it up and get ahead of the game.
Time for a second mug of coffee. Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
