I had an enjoyable mid-weekish rest with hubby taking the kids to school. Soon afterwards the wind began howling and the rain started to fall. I wore my dressing gown until ten o'clock. The daggy one. Why are the daggiest ones the most comfortable? Anyway, I pottered around, popped some soup into the slow cooker and enjoyed three cups of English breakfast tea. In a row.
The usual chores were still there, but on a rainy day it seems fitting to go with a slower pace. On a rainy day, there is no washing to be hung out, so I just feel that little bit less rushed. More time for other things.
Mum used to sometimes buy Top Taste madeira cake when I was a kid. This CWA recipe sultana cake reminds me very much of that rich cake.
Experimental "sour dough" bread with my feijoa jam. Experimenting in that I leave the no knead dough out for 48 hours or so and it bubbles up and becomes a little sour dough-like. Holes and all.
I also attempted to learn to knit in the round. Let's just say there's been a lot of unraveling going on. I'm hoping to get a pair of these made for Violet in the not too distant future. A project in between projects. With the little cardigan finished (more on that tomorrow) I'm pondering which yarn and project to try next. Any ideas? What is on your needles right now?
Hoping that you all have a wonderful Wednesday.
