It's a beautiful day here in the Vale; bright and sunny, but with a good wind - first line of washing is hung out; supplies for the beasties have been bought and stowed, the rest of the weekend is mine, but I will have to spend it catching up on the house. Most of last weekw as taken up with organising then running the shop opening event int he village - it went very, very well, everyone had a great time, so was worth it in the end! However, house in a real state, even moreso than usual.
One of the jobs I'm looking forward to doing this afternoon is getting the store room back to my sort of order. When I left, ex OH took it over and most of my emergency supply stuff had either gone with me or been shifted or rearranged - I desperately need it in good order so I can see what I have for the coming winter/foreseeable future. I have stocked up on bread flour and yeast; I remember last winter when the shelves were bare of ready made bread eerywhere, the home baking shelves were very depleted too. I didn't run out of anything then, and I won't this year, but stocks in the store room are peace of mind. I want to get back to my 3 months of stores - just in case. Better a plan and no disaster than a disaster and no plan.
I have lots more fruit to process too - pears and apples, and it's almost time for the medlars - another frost and I reckon I'll be harvesting them too.
Also need to catch up ont he laundry, and set to to give the whole house a deep clean, and get the sitting room ready for the winter - winter curtains hung, woodburner cleaned up and dusted off, stuff mvoed and sorted so it's cosy for the evenings.
Better get moving then. After tea ofcourse............ :)
