Thursday Musings.


Good Afternoon and a beautiful one it is too.When I entered the world this morning just after eight it was very dull but warm.  I took a chance and changed the bed in the hope the rain that was forecast would not come today. Just about lunchtime the sun came out and has been shining since and has been very warm sitting in the garden.
My tomatoes are coming on a treat and getting very tall as they are on a south facing wall they get any sun that is going and the tiny ones on the windowsill are coming on grand too.  My Sweat Peas are very slow this year I put the plants in before we went on holiday and I think they were frosted one night so it has taken them a while to recover and they are still only about 8  inches high hope they get a move on or they won't get a chance to flower.
While sitting out today Stu has been painting a water colour of one of my pictures I took on holiday the one with the tide defences I took a Sheringham he was using his easel and having a lot of bother with it slackening off so there was not much peace and quiet for me but I did manage to get my book finished all 765 pages of it at last it seems to have taken me ages (The Temple Matthew Reilly). Tonight a rare treat fresh linen and a new book together I just love that feeling. I am going to read a mystery next after all Matthew's action looking for something a bit quieter. Have chosen S is for Silence by Sue Grafton, this is the first time I have read something of hers so I am hoping I have found a new author, for me. She is working her way through the alphabet with the same lady detective so I will see how it pans out and will let you know what I think later.
Think that's about it for today nearly teatime and the chicken should be ready for the next stage. Making chicken it a creamy white wine sauce with mushrooms new potatoes broccoli and carrots hope I've made you all hungry now have a great evening. Love
