Today is Monday 15th March

The day has started sunny, though a few grey clouds are playing chase me out to sea.
We can’t actually see the water from here, but can certainly hear it at times, even with all the windows closed!

With the housework done and breakfast had, our plans are simple…………… not much.
We went through our seed packets yesterday, throwing out the open ones (Hubby had a seed shower and wasn’t impressed) and checking dates. We have tomato seeds and bean pods, and will get an onion set of 50 or so for around a £1 when we next go to town. We found cabbages and cauliflower plus swede, parsnips and carrots, so can hopefully grow our own stew. We’ll start them off in due course indoors to give them a chance to establish.

With the success of the corned beef hash yesterday, Hubby can have what’s left of the meat and potatoes today. I’ll have a jacket potato with some cottage cheese that has to be used or I might go for some mixed veg instead to go with it. Either way, we won’t starve and there should be no repercussions.

It’s my Dad’s birthday today, so we shall be lighting a candle for him when we get back from our walk. This year marks 25 years of his passing.

Hope your day has started well and all is well with you. Keep safe and take care everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    With the jump in daylight savings time it is just getting light out here. We bought seeds and are preparing “the plan”. Sparky and I did a little survey of the raised beds and lo and behold, the kale is still alive and putting out new leaves and the same for the arugula that he didn’t turn under this last fall… He has to decide on planting fresh or harvesting what is already growing. Our big plans are a visit to the eye doctor for our exams. I have to remember to wear a black mask or a disposable so if I cry yellow tears it doesn’t ruin anything!
