This morning a thick envelope of fog hung around the valley. Large drips fell from the roof, likely the result of a heavy dew. Or perhaps a light frost.
I cut myself a few slices of bread, baked late last night. Spread with peanut butter. Put on that necessary morning coffee.
I discovered our little artist has been at it again.
Sadly, I haven't had much time for knitting these school holidays. When I did I made a crucial decreasing error in the dress I was making for Violet. Then I worried that the little dress probably wouldn't be so practical afterall. I unravelled. Almost three whole balls. I was strangely disconnected from the process. Perhaps my heart was never really in that one. So I found a very simple, garter stitch, hopefully school holiday/low concentration friendly top. The 4 seasons jacket pattern.
We were given a huge home grown pumpkin the other day from a friend. A pumpkin soup and a pasta with fried pumpkin (and other vegies) later... and we are still only halfway through it. Savoury pumpkin pie tonight perhaps? I've been saving the seeds. I might put few away for next years seeds and for the others I might try a roasted recipe like this one.
Wishing you all a pleasant day.
