Sunday 2 September 2018
It is the first Sunday of September, the sun shone and the warmth given off by the sun, would have many thinking it was still the middle of summer. It was so lovely out when I took Paddy for his morning stroll. Going for a walk, is always nicer when the sun is shining and around here on a Sunday morning, it is so quiet, there was not another living soul about.
After breakfast for us and Paddy, it was time to get my baking apron on, mixing bowls out and fire up the stove. I am not a fancy baker or cook. I like good old plain baking and cooking, so today's delights were muffins and fruit scones.
Whilst lunch was cooking, I put the final coat of varnish on the galley doors. All I have to do, once they are dry is put the handles and bolts back on. Another painting job, successfully completed. I still have paintwork to do, but this coming week, I will be busy helping with the Heritage Weekend, so will have little time to do any sort of painting and then we are off cruising again. I may just have to do paintwork, whilst we are out cruising, if time and weather allows.
After a rather scrummy lunch and coffee, the decision had to be made. Do more jobs, or as it is a Sunday put my feet up and do some more crochet in front of the TV.
Guess which won?
I am still a believer that Sunday's should be a day of rest and relaxation, of course that only came for me after baking and varnishing, but you know what I mean. Oh I forgot to mention, I was also tearing up news paper for Keith.
See you on the other side.
Pop back soon. xxx
