Sleepy Sunday

I had plans for my Sabbath, the day that I don't work on my fledging business or within the NHS.  I was going to go lots and lots of printing and go for a really long walk.  I woke and meditated for longer than I usually work on a weekday.  And when I eventually emerged from the boudoir I did get some printing done.  I've been working on those hares again and printed the background.  Sometimes my craft projects take years to come to fruition.


Then it was meant to be walk time but I felt so sleepy.  'Nap' I thought I heard a little voice say. Well, even if I didn't it was a good idea.  At times during the day I've dipped into my latest book.  It's a rare day that I don't venture outside when I'm well but this was one of them.


 I did some more sea themed pizza dish carving.  My jellyfish is coming on but is quite intricate so taking a time. 

Then I fancied some leisurely cooking.  The only time I like a regular green pepper is when I use it as a garnish for Bursa Kebabs.  Yum! 


A chef's tipple was called for.  The 2017 vintage sloe gin is a corker served on the rocks.  My tumblers were a  new-to-me bargain.  Three quid for six in a charity shop in Newquay.


A bake has been calling for a while.  Here's my lime and coconut cake, a Bake with Stork online recipe.  As I've said before my Stork vintage cookbook is a fave of mine.  I never use 'marg' though but replace it with the fat or oil of my choice, butter this time.


Looking back I've been quite busy.  Maybe Sunday wasn't quite so sleepy after all!
