Ellin's fudge !
Oh my stars ~ Ellin brought me some luscious fudge (see pic) ~ I had one piece just to try and before the evening was out had scoffed the whole lot ! Mmm was it ever good ! Later I'll try one of these magic tea flowers ~ I'll let you know results ...
This morning had a good hour cleaning kitchen window which certainly needed it ~ I even went out and cleaned outside too, as far as I could reach which was all but top line of panes ~ while I had a bucket and cloth out there I scrubbed down both window sills so that was a worthwhile task. Annie came earlier and we had a really friendly hour and more though I probably talked too much, and somehow never got round to offering her coffee. She and Christopher are such good friends.
Ellen has asked me to do a Tarot reading for her American neighbour and she's bringing her over tomorrow morning. Had a very good lunch, with last scrap of bacon, a couple of mushrooms and theleft over half of yesterday's sweet potato, plus the rest of last night's salad : finely shredded sweet heart cabbage, a couple of chopped spring onions, ditto tomatoes, with handfull of raisins and a chopped tangerine ~ dressing : olive oil, squeezed lemon juice, teaspoon of white sugar, salt and pepper ~ all prepared an hour or so before needed and finally sprinkled with chopped parsley ~ I could eat bucketsful !
Yesterday this wonderful coloured ball arrived, solar powered, made from coloured crystal chips ~ it is supposed to go out in the garden but once I'd actually switched it on, I decided to put it on sitting room window sill which gets masses of sun ~ as it got dark, I could see it glowing gloriously behind the curtain so I'll leave it there for now ~ in the garden it could get nicked. I t's standing on a green glass block (an ash tray i think it is, made from recycled glass) so that it stands up above the bottom window frame and glows merrily out to the world.
I am getting on fine with the Kindle and showed Annie how clever it is ~ one of their family wants to buy her one. When I open it up it goes straight to the page I was reading ~ quite amazing ~ the print size I am using is brilliant for my feeble eyes and there are a couple more possibilities, even bigger.
Oh Lordy ~ I keep meaning to tell you about our 'cousin' Elspeth Angus out in San Francisco ~ I keep getting side tracked . . . but not tonight . . .
Too late to start this tonight
Another very busy day and too late to start this tonight but I'll just download photos and get going in the morning
