Our weather has been very wet this week - torrential rain & grey skies. I have spent the week dodging it between students; it is not my favourite working weather because I arrive at my students dripping all over their places ...
Friday - my day off; always a welcome time in the week & this week it is catch up with chores at home time since it is not really the day to be out & about.
Fortunately, there was some roast root vegetables left from supper last night - perfect for a soup lunch. Heat up some vegetable stock, add the chopped roast vegetables into it, let it simmer till soft then mash or blend it to your ideal consistency! Easy & totally delicious.
Instead of toast, I made some quick chilli-garlic crutons & then sat down to peruse the wonderful Postcards from Penguin box set & a new book, The Five people you meet in Heaven, that arrived today.
While taking the above photo for the blog, I noticed movement outside & it was our regular grey squirrel raiding the nut feeder outside in the rain!
As mischievious as he is, it is always good to see he / she has survived winter & is about again!
I recommend this box set of 100 Postcards from Penguin; It has some really good titles - these two caught my eye over lunch:
A Room of One's Own
Keeping Poultry and Rabbits on scraps
Interesting - one always needs a room or space of your own to just relax & gather your thoughts but ... I don't know what our two diva rabbits would think of scraps without their treats.
Hope your day has been good everyone, have a great Friday & weekend!
