1. It is soup and fresh bread season! Hurrah, I love making soup and of course the bread to dunk in it.
2. All the tomato and aubergine plants have been pulled out of the raised beds and I have started to dig them over and add in a pile of compost. The weekend was lovely and sunny and today it has rained all day so far with no sign of dry on the near horizon. Oh well at least the compost will get watered into the soil and the leaves will mulch down nicely.
3. More tennis this weekend, we like to play in the handball courts, bouncing the balls off the three walls. Kind of tennis crossed with squash with a healthy dose of giggling thrown in.
4. I have been keeping up with a 30 day sketchbook challenge with Skillshare and day 13 was ‘leaves’. I used my lovely sumi brush and gouache paint to quickly sketch the leaves I picked up in the woods that day.
Did you have a good week? I hope so. I have been thinking about Christmas baking and I need to get my ingredients together this week for Christmas cake and mincemeat for mince pies. Are you prepping for Christmas yet or are you rolling your eyes right now at the very mention of it?!
I wonder if it will stop raining this week? It looks pretty settled in to me.
