We had another stormy night on Friday. I found it hard to get any sleep I was sure the roof would be blown off the house, it didn't and neither did any of the tiles. I thought my log cabin might be blown away - it wasn't. However when Norman and I drove to my class on Thursday I saw the self same log cabin had had it's roof blown off and was hanging on a huge tree - that's what made me worry about mine. My studio nestles in a corner of the garden and I guess it has some shelter from the trees and houses around.
It had calmed down sufficiently for me to go my walk yesterday. I came home and worked on my project for a friend. I can't show you pictures just yet as I know she reads my blog. Speaking of blogs Norman has been talking about having a blog for ages now. Yesterday I helped him at least get one up and running. He wanted it to journal the making of his latest train, I think he has been busy with it again this morning! It's very icy here today the pavements are like sheets of ice and so I have decided not to walk today. I have the housework done and have been busy organising lunch and dinner.
Since it's so very cold, and also because we had an organic chicken for dinner last night, I decided to make a pot of soup. I have been going to the farmers' market for my veg but I am finding that I throw away more than I can use. It's not the farmer's fault but once the veg is washed you can see the bad bits. I have resorted to buying my veg from the supermarket again.
That's the soup done and is cooking as I write. DH loves home made soup as do I. I am not a great foody but I love to cook - good job Norman loves to eat!
We are having pork fillet baked in the oven with steamed vegatables and boiled potatoes. Everything is times to be ready at 6pm so I have the rest of the day to play! I plan on finishing my project and hopefully I can get to work on the next quilt using the photographs of the trees I took the other day. I am still toying with the idea of the book design for my first assessment piece. I need to plan and sketch some more before I put my brief together for Marie my tutor.
