Pickles And A Cake
Yesterday I didn't get much done at all, this virus decided it wasn't yet ready to go, apart from doing the usual chores I didn't feel like coping with anything else.
Today however I feel fine again apart from a hacking cough.
A morning was spent in the kitchen
I did a couple of jars of the refrigerator pickle, using up some of cucumbers a few chilies and some garlic along with dill.
I did plan to get some baking done yesterday, did it today instead,
I made a Marmalade Loaf Cake, Link HERE I used one of the jars of marmalade I made last year.
I also did the usual loaf of bread, we tried a slice of the Marmalade loaf with a cup of tea while it was still warm, it was lovely and moist.
We had to take a trip out over the mountain
All the heather is in flower and looks stunning
We were off out to pick up a new ride on mower
I spotted it for sale last week its 3 years old but was only used a few times as the owner took ill and passed away, its in immaculate condition, the handbook was with it along with the receipt of purchase, we got it for a third of the price, our old one has been having a few problems it was time for a change.

Clocks went back one hour.
