Sun and Doggies!

The sun is shining again, I'm so happy :) Lots more time to spend in the garden again today, except today was more about sitting back, relaxing and enjoying all the hard work (well OK, for me it was, poor Andy was still fence painting). The dogs went from trying to find a piece of sun to lay in, to seeking out some shadow




Gary was the clever one, he hopped up next to me and into my crochet bag!



I think he looks really cute, though I did have to move him a couple of times to get some wool out.

It was nice to be able to take some crochet outside for the first time. I carried on with Adam's blanket (I'm not picking it up as often as I should really, and I'm feeling impatient for it to grow!) and found the rhythmic motion very soothing.



I did manage to drag myself inside to prepare some chips for tea. We bought an actifry last year after much um..ing and ah..ing (will it become something that gets used a couple of times than goes to hibernate in a cupboard for ages), it was such a good buy! The chips taste lovely, so much nicer than oven baked ones, but without all the fat :)


We had some with chicken and a nice big salad for tea. Felt very healthy and virtuous :)

Here's one more photo of Bruce :)

It's too hot mum!
Take care

  4. Hello Cheryl, Thank you for popping over to my blog. Life is a bit busy at the moment, but when it quietens down I am looking forward to reading some of your old posts and getting to know you a bit better. I can see right from the start that we enjoy many of the same things - I'm really interested in the way you cook your chips. The sight of them transported me back so many years to when chips were home cooked and utterly delicious..

    1. The actifry only uses one teaspoon of oil, but tastes like fried... yum!

  7. Hi Cheryl,

    Trying to get caught up. My dogs (well one of them) peed on my crocheting (bag and blanket) this week so I'm not letting them near any of it. AUGH. Your pups are cute. Are the chips what we call potato chips? I made some one time, that was it. But they were yummy, and greasy, but still...yummy. You're going to have to give us more info on those chips.

    1. Oh no, I wouldn't trust my dogs around my bag if I wasn't nearby :) Would you call chips fries perhaps? Chunky french fries? x
