Thursday, 30th September 2021 - Sunflowers from Pippa

I have planted seeds and bulbs. The house felt cold on my return so I lit the woodburner. Such a glorious smell and the warmth has percolated through the rooms. Just lovely.

Reading art books and listening to ArtJuice podcasts has been taking up my art energy. This evening I tackled my procrastination.

Tuesday, 14th September 2021 - Steve and Ange's Damsons

My paints and brushes having been taunting me. At last I get to wet my bristles.

We have a bucket load of damsons to process. The removal of their stones is laborious. I expect excellent culinary results.

Wednesday, 8th September 2021 - Ben Harvesting Lunch

Tom and Fable are staying with us for a few days. They go for a brisk morning walk. I have joined them the past couple of days.  Fable waits for me when I lag behind. 

Adriene put me through my paces on the yoga mat.

At Water Lane I met Pippa and June, followed by Lindsey for coffee. The orange, almond and polenta cake was delicious. It is such a glorious place. Nick and Ian have great plans for workshops, a Christmas market and I love the idea of going to watch a play.

Back home and the heat slowed my ability to do anything very productive.
