A Cold Day on the Ridge
I was actually awake ahead of Bill on Saturday, Oct. 12th and I realized that this was his first day of ‘sleeping in’ all week. I just lay there quietly, not wanting to disturb him. When he did wake, we were in no rush to hop out of bed and that was nice too. I could hear the patter of rain on the roof but it was light and I wondered if we had received any through the wee hours as was forecast.
|A cloudy day was upon us|
|And half hour later, the sun came out|
|My sweet little watermelons|
|The ironing board doesn't come out too often|
but I'm glad we have it
|Half the checked bag is mine|
|The 5 pieces in need of ironing|
Cottons, silks, easy wrinkle materials
|Apple custard crumble ready for the oven|
|Just ready to pick the last of the veggies|
I had to close my book for half hour at one point, after I finished my tea. My eyes felt very heavy. Sure enough, I dozed off which is strange for me. Never-the-less, it was a nap I needed and when I woke up at 4:30, started to put together a meatloaf for supper. Tonight, I’m going to cook it in the convection oven for a change rather than Madame IP. I pulled up the recipe in Word and set to it. It was in the oven at 5:00.

The meatloaf was done at 6:10 and I turned the veggies on to boil. Just a simple hearty meal tonight (well, after all the prep) and we shared a delicious garden tomato. It all turned out great and we had a dish of custard for dessert before getting the dishes out of the way.
|A nice meal for a cold night|
