I can tell you why I don't like Mondays but I won't. I'll just try to change my attitude and love them just as much as any other day of the week.
I'm posting letters today and hoping that the postman actually stops at my letterbox tomorrow. He hasn't even slowed down the past three mail delivery days. I'm expecting a bulging letterbox tomorrow... fingers crossed.
I'm using my much needed new gardening gloves today. I hung out until Mother's Day with some tattered old gloves and these new ones feel luxurious in comparison.
Planting out some 'mums. I have quite a few in the garden but there's always room for another flower so I always get a chrysanthemum or two for Mother's Day. I can count on one hand the number of purchased bouquets of flowers I have received over the years and that's fine with me. I'm more of a plant kind of girl. I get the flowers now and in the future too. Not romantic but totally practical.
And what's happening in the house? Well the dining room has been commandeered by the head brewer to bottle up a stout he is making. He's experimenting with a few bottles and putting some liquorice in. I'm a teetotaller but I'm going to don my brewster's cap and make a nettle beer next. Then maybe a batch of mead.
It's town day today (that might well be why I don't like Mondays) so I have my shopping list sorted and my menu plan. This weeks menu is almost exclusively being cooked with recipes from River Cottage Veg Everyday. YUM!!
This week's menu
Monday- homemade pizza
Wednesday- Pinto Bean Chilli
Thursday- anyone's guess, I have to go out of town
Friday- Cauliflower and chickpea curry
Saturday- Onion Tart with salad
Sunday- Soup night
Now I'm hungry.
