I got up to leaden skies that seemed to be skimming the roof line, out of that came drizzle, pouring down, a bit more drizzle and then the heavens really opened.
I did manage to get Herbie out for a quick walk, more of a mad dash truth be told. Ben took one look out of the front door, shook his head in amazement at my foolishness, turned round and marched to the back door. It was obviously garden time for him.
The SO and I were in agreement, sofa surfing was the order of the day. We did do all the normal chores first though.
I did the fridge sort and tidy, there is now a wonderfully aromatic veg curry cooling down, tomorrows dinner.
A puff pastry lattice filled with salmon and bechamel sauce is in the oven, along with a sweet potato in it's jacket, we will share that. A small tray of chopped courgette is in there also and there are carrots, broccoli and cauliflower steaming on the hob. I am looking forward to that.
fast forward..... just as I typed the last paragraph the timer pinged and dinner was ready. It was delicious.
I have been knitting, of course that is what rainy days were made for, and one sock is finished and it's partner started.
The yarn is Drops Delight Print, a very plump 4 ply with a halo.
I knitted the gusset and heel in eye of partridge stitch and it is really soft and a bit bouncy. These are going to be lovely and warm in my boots when the cold weather gets here. I only wear short socks with boots as I either have trousers or thick tights on.
I have enjoyed my lazy day but hope that there are not too many of them. I like to keep busy and soon get fidgety if I am idle.
I need to check to see if a walk is on the cards, Ben will keep the sofa warm for me but Herbie needs to burn up some energy.
I feel much the same, I need a walk and some fresh air. If it is still hammering down I will wear my dryzabone and see if I can wrestle Herbie into a coat.
