The past week has felt like spring is on her way. We have had beautifully fine if somewhat cooler days. Yesterday I repotted some pot plants, weeded the vegetable garden in anticipation of the compost I 'll be digging in soon, and had two loads of washing blowing in the breezey sunshine on the clothes line.
Here's a rundown of the pretty parts of my weekend though.
- Black Velvet Cake - recipe from this beautiful book and also found here. This smelled divine as the stout, butter, chocolate and cocoa gently heated and melded together. The cake itself was delicious, very rich, so pieces smaller than what are cut are in order.
- Binding a wee project for my MIL - more about this in Wednesday's Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE
- Some more ice cream soda blocks
- The Chosen Few by Gregg Zoraya. This is a true story about a platoon fighting in Afghanistan, it read like fiction, I couldn't put it down. Such a heartbreaking read though, and such courageous young men.
Hoping you have all had a fabulous weekend too. See you next week.
