It has been a quiet day I have been on my own, but busy busy busy. I am still struggling with the Jam Store. I have found lots of stuff I had forgotten about including loads of beer bottles. Me thinks they are going to be put into use over the next few weeks or so and I am slowly starting to restore order to complete confusion. OH is going to help me re-line the shelves, with constant use the covers have become jaded so I am going to completely recover the shelves make things clean neat and tidy. I have also scrubbed out the cupboard as well. One of my Elderflower champagne bottles has struck a leak and been dripping everywhere. I have new preserves to put away and more to do yet but the making of stuff has been put on hold. I may start some during the week again, will see how it goes but failing which I will recommence next weekend. I have found a load of bouquet garni which I had prepared (I had been looking for them as I use in soups and gravies, casseroles etc) - I knew I had a stash somewhere.
Since OH has been back we have had a windy walk with Missy down by the river. Just to get a breath of fresh air. Tea is cooking (we always or nearly always have Sunday lunch of an evening so that we can make the best of the day and get the most time wise. I have also cooked two large squash as we are having some with tea roasted the rest will go to make a butternut squash soup with some milk and a little spicing. I am quite partial to soup and I particularly like home made soup. It is a meal in itself.
I have ginger beer and apple pop to make at some point too.
Catch up again a little later
