Today has been a lovely, easy day. We built a quick reed fence to stop the chickens from flying over the wall to the back garden. This is where the dogs live and for some reason the chickens try their best to reach this part of our property. I am so relieved the fence is up and they are all safe and sound in the front garden now.

We are also having heavy rains tonight, it’s actually wonderful, don’t mention this to Richard, it has been raining for a few days now and he hasn’t been able to ride his bike, so he isn’t too thrilled about all the rain, (my poor love). Jenna and I made a delicious Jamie Oliver pasta recipe for dinner. It’s off of his Jamie Oliver Food Guide App, amazing and well worth it!

I also picked some Canary Yellow Spinach and cooked it up stalks and all with some coarse salt, pepper and fresh cream, yum! Can you believe how yellow those stalks are, just love it. These were from some heirloom veggie seeds I planted a few months ago.

Well, I’m off to bake a chocolate cake for my dad’s 83rd birthday tomorrow.
What have you been doing today?

    I do love winter, but I did have jus a “tinge” of envy looking at all that beautiful life just growing abundantly in and out of your house!

    Today I am resting and DECLUTTERING! My roommates are out of town (on their honeymoon, actually) so I’m loving having the whole place to myself! Also finishing my mom’s Christmas (still have 10 more days! lol) prayer shawl

    It’s so funny to see all the green at your home. Where I live (high up in the mountains of Austria) there’s snow and it’s really cold 😉
    I linked your blog because of your apples I found on ravelry and now made for the horse of my daughter 😉
    Greetings. maria

    The colour of the yellow spinach is amazing!

    I’ve been failing to make jewellery today. It’s my third try with the selection of beads I chose and I’m going to take it apart yet again later on today after work.

    Ach – there IS color left in the world. You know, I think what makes for an easy day is a project that isn’t all that difficult, but that – once done – changes things for the better and more functional. I love that, a job to do that gets done.
