I'm joining in with Sylvia's Home Keeper Journal challenge over at Christian Home Keeper Network:
In My Kitchen This Week... I'm concentrating on making simple and delicious meals. Yesterday I made smoked mackerel, potato and onion soup; this evening, I have GF pasta with tuna, tomato and cheese.
Changes I Make To My Home In Spring … I have put away my fleece blankets, perhaps prematurely as tonight's temperature is meant to be below 0 degrees C; I'll celebrate the beginning of spring by buying some daffodils for my desk. I'll look through my clothes and see what I can send to the charity shops.
Changes In My Schedule … I look forward to British Summer Time, and the promise of brighter mornings, and not going to and coming home from work in the dark. The children at church will also be able to play outside and enjoy themselves after the 4pm service.
Changes In My Yard/Homestead … I moved into a new rented house in September, and really left the garden alone over winter, aside from planning from the warmth of the house. Today I began clearing the borders of bracken and yard after yard of brambles. I found bulbs underneath! -
What I Look Forward to This Spring … Doing more in the garden, cycling and running again (too cold for my asthma to cope with in Winter). Long walks in Home Park, Henry the VIII's hunting park, and Richmond Park.
Spring Brings with It … Insects. Not my favourite. I did manage to ignore the huge long legged spider on my wall last night and just go to bed. Perhaps I will call him George.
A Sure Sign Of Spring … Daffodils, green bulb shoots, Cadbury cream eggs in the shops.
A Favorite Spring Activity … Daffodils are so abundant just at this time. I seeing and stopping to sniff their sent as I walk about my area.
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils"
Why not head over to Sylvia's to see how others are feeling and thinking about spring?
