It was a perfectly blissful, blowy and sunny Sunday today.
After all animals were fed and watered, I decided to make some bread – a rustic granary for me and a white for him.
I haven’t had much practise in bread making however, whilst the kitchen was tidy and bright in the morning sun, I felt compelled to bake. Kneading dough to background music of Bach’s ‘Cello Suite No. 1’ followed by Nick Drake’s ‘Cello’ was pure pleasure!
I have a peculiar penchant for round things and watching the big doughy mound rise in the bowl was deeply satisfying.
Whilst the dough was proving, I decided to have a bit of a switch around of things in the kitchen and rediscovered the delights of more round things.
I also nipped out to the garden to steal a fading November rose that was hiding behind the willow.
…and then made some leek and potato soup to go with the bread.
Later, George and I went to Machrins…
…for a round of doggy golf…
…and to round off a perfect day, I wrapped up warm and headed off to the bonfire down at the pier, to see a pumpkin meet his fate!
A good day all round!
