The sun came out for the weekend. Saturday morning we managed to get out for a nice walk along the creek with Max. Unfortunately we only managed to get about two thirds round when it started to rain. We took shelter under a tree (thankfully the gale force winds of the previous day had gone away) and while we were waiting for the shower to pass we were lucky enough to capture this beautiful rainbow.
"Like the appearance of a RAINBOW in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord . . . " (Ezekiel 1:26-28)
A couple of weeks ago I helped a friend of mine at her grand daughters 13th birthday party. I didn’t really do a lot except cut up lots of pizza and help tidy up but her daughter kindly bought me some daffodils as a thank you. When I received them they were only buds but over the weekend they came out in bloom and lit up my kitchen.
Saturday afternoon I was able to spend a few hours in our conservatory enjoying the sunshine and listening to the rain showers every now and then too LOL. It also gave me the opportunity to make a start on February’s Primrose from the My Garden Journal series. This is where I left if Saturday evening.
Sunday was a lovely sunny day – no showers until the evening. We were able to get out and do some tidying up in the garden which was really nice. I made sweet potato and pepper soup for lunch and it was delicious.
Another afternoon was spent stitching in the conservatory and by Sunday evening I had managed to finish February’s Primrose. They are lovely to stitch – providing you place the stitches in the correct holes! I spent quite a bit of Sunday afternoon frogging the border on the left hand side. Thankfully Sunday evening it all fell into place and I was able to add this to my list of finishes.
Well my week off work has gone far too quickly – it’s back to work for me today – sadly no lottery win over the weekend.
