It is a fall day just how I like it, sunny, coolish and great for a bit of outdoor work. I came home from a visit to our little downtown market this morning and sat to a nice lunch of fresh salad greens, sardines, and a slice of whole grain artisan bread with goat cheese.
With my tea I did a sketch of a feather that I found yesterday. That's two feathers found I n three days and I also dreamed of feathers. I wonder what it could mean.
Hubby is gone for the day to a golf tournament which means im on my own for supper. Yippee! Before leaving, he very thoughtfully gathered all the tools for me that I would need to work on another little 2 foot patch of the walkway to the back door. I mentioned that I might like to work on it this afternoon. With the pinched nerve in my back it's hard for me to drag things around the yard.
The little stone top right isn't set to go in there. It's holding the cloth for now. I've got them pretty well fitted and levelled. My husband will lug some sand and spread it over the seams.
I'm sitting with ice packs as I write! We'll see how the back and legs feel tonight. I may do another small section before the ground freezes.
Just after lunch I cut up some yellow zucchini and julienned some carrots to make my favourite Vietnamese style pickles .
They are light tasting, made with rice vinegar, a dash of maple syrup, herbs and garlic. Poured directly into the jar. It will keep about two weeks. I eat them up fast!
Now for the next few hours I can knit, read, or sew, whatever I feel like. We'll see.
I'm wishing you a nice weekend wherever you are in the world.
