I've been a bit under the weather the last few days. Benny being so generous shared his cold with me. I just wish the little man with the mallet would stop his hammering inside my head. I haven't actually felt like doing anything but snuggling up with hot tea but I managed a few rows of knitting in between naps. One advantage of this simple life is one can do nothing once in a while without upsetting anything. True the washing is escaping from the basket this morning but not to worry we have other things to wear



I managed to bake on Saturday while Pampa did the grocery shopping, so the tins are full or were full.


  • Ginger biscuits, Benny has been asking for these for ages.




  • and while I was about it a Sticky Ginger cake.


The morning is grey with a little rain and hardly any wind. Not a good day for a Monday, not the sort of day to start the week off with.


  • The Pear tree with a few yellow leaves still clinging on.

I like Monday to be bright a cheerful with a little breeze. I like to be able to breath in the fresh air and lift my face to the sun. We can't have everything, now lets see whats good about today. It's not cold, around about 14c, not bad for the end of October. I don't have to go out anywhere as all the errands were done on Saturday. There isn't any ironing to do and I have supper all planned. I can start a new knitting project today as I've caught up with my dishcloth swap items for next month. All in all a day when I can gather my strengths again.


  • Cooking supper from this book, 5o Great Curries of India by Camellia Panjabi.

Hope you're feeling better now. I managed to deflect my cold completely by dosing with homemade eldeberry tincture and firecider vinegar (horseradish, onion, garlic, ginger and rosehips) and horseradish honey. Hubby didn't do so well (didn't dose himself enough at the beginning!) so was ill for a week!

Your baking looks lovely, and all that ginger will do your cold wonders!
