FOR TODAY, April 18, 2017
Outside my window ...
The sun is up, the birds are singing on a cool, but dry Spring day.
I am thinking ...
I hope that Todd got a good night's sleep last night. He had a sore tummy yesterday in the afternoon. I made him some ginger tea using fresh gingerroot and sweetened with honey. It did the trick. You never know what is a side effect from the radiotherapy, or what isn't. It all upsets me, but we just have to get on with things and through each day that passes, hoping that the next day is a better one.
In the kitchen ...
Mock Lasagne Casserole. An oldie from a cookery book I bought back in the early 1970's! Delicious!
On my "To Cook" list ...
Triple Chocolate Scones, from Sally's Baking Addiction. Those do look good.
Good to know ...
How To Get Organized at Home. How to tackle mould on window-sills.
I am creating ...
Knot Your Nana's Crochet, an easy market bag.
Make a birdhouse from a matchbox. No source, just inspiration.

Tumblr. Bullet Journal Header/Divider designs.
I am reading ...
The Midwife's Revolt, by Jodi Daynard
On a dark night in 1775, Lizzie Boylston is awakened by the sound of cannons. From a hill south of Boston, she watches as fires burn in Charlestown, in a battle that she soon discovers has claimed her husband’s life.
Alone in a new town, Lizzie grieves privately but takes comfort in her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams. Soon, word spreads of Lizzie’s extraordinary midwifery and healing skills, and she begins to channel her grief into caring for those who need her. But when two traveling patriots are poisoned, Lizzie finds herself with far more complicated matters on her hands—she suspects a political plot intended to harm Abigail and her family. Determined to uncover the truth, Lizzie becomes entangled in a conspiracy that could not only destroy her livelihood—and her chance at finding love again—but also lead to the downfall of a new nation.
I am looking forward to ...
Our trip to Scotland in June. Lura and John coming at the end of this week. Val visiting in May, also Chris and his wife. (Chris was a missionary who served here a couple of years ago.)
Dreaming about ...
An "All Clear" for Todd when they do the blood tests, etc.
Sometimes you just want a slice of white bread and butter . . .
New Carpeting in the lounge/dining room . . . front hall, up the stairs . . . new carpeting, full stop.
Something to watch ...
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. We watched it the other night for the bazillionth time. Still entertaining. Did you know Jane Powell is still alive? Amazing!
