After a reasonably relaxing weekend the week has been busy. Monday afternoon was Book Club and we took advantage of the sunshine and sat outside to discuss The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani. I found the first half of the book very slow but thought that the second half moved at a much better pace. I gave the book 7/10. Unfortunately, it had a lot of similarities to the previous month’s book The Seamstress.
The forecast for today was good and it lived up to its promise - a lovely day.
Three things I like:
1. Making elderflower champagne - in spite of the mess on the floor afterwards!
2. Watching the hens enjoy the weeds I've pulled out of the veggie patches.
3. Lying out in the sun this afternoon and admiring all the flowers.
