I have a morning routine that I have pretty much kept constant since retiring.
Morning coffee is sipped while browsing Instagram and my email.
Once dressed I pop a load of laundry in and tidy up the kitchen and have my breakfast...
if I am staying at home I'll open my Lap top and read some blogs or perhaps write a blog post...Chester has other ideas!
Chester sat on my laptop and conveyed that he had an ulterior motive...
how could I resist those eyes?
Positively beastly weather out there today
gloomy grey and rainy
a perfect day to stay in and bake while keeping warm inside the kitchen.
No, I am not drinking rum I am making my Mother's Rum Balls.
The Eiffel Tower souvenir comes in handy when I need a ring holder!
You can coat them with icing sugar, cocoa, or chocolate sprinkles.
I also made the dough for cranberry citrus shortbread cookies.
Recipe can be found here.
Lots of noise is coming from the job site next door as there is a backhoe levelling out the dirt around the two houses.
The windows are in and the crews are putting gypsum on the walls inside of the house right next to ours.
Can you see the raindrops on the kitchen window?
Its raining sideways!
My Mother would have said
"It's raining cats and dogs!"
I plan to cozy up in the living room later with my knitting and a cup of tea.
I am still working on that lap blanket...
it is taking me a long time much longer than I would have predicted
as it is awkward juggling all the stitches on the circular needles
and the weight of the project is not comfortable to work on for too long.
This summer tote was a hostess gift from our DIL's mother.
Isn't it fabulous?
I love using it as a knitting bag too as it is commodious enough for the yarn as well as the lap blanket.
Time to close and put the kettle on...
Thank you so much for popping by The Humble Bungalow Blog today.
