Scribbles for the weekend #8
Wow, here we are in October. Sunrise at 07:16 and Sunset at 18:48!
The blueberries are local, from Fife just across the water. They are rugged not conforming to the military pea size shape that I’m used to, with a taste to the bite that bursts in the mouth. This always seems to wane with air miles and I wish they could be like this all year round. I’m also finishing off the Greek yoghurt which feels decadent for breakfast and I remind myself it’s been a tough week with back to back teams calls, be kind to yourself!
This week’s morning routines have been effected by rain, the most we’ve had in a long time marked by the fact I had to do a school run, which happens once in a blue moon, or in this case Monday morning where the skies just opened up. Everything feels fresher for it, but with a cold that starts to bite if you’re not moving. The Tuesday morning run is certainly a lot colder and a mental note needs to be taken, I really need to get the gloves out for the next time.
This is the month of pumpkins and apples, with the leaves turning, gathering in piles as the wind swirls them into position. The veg boxes are typically a little heavier loaded with a squash, a Savoy cabbage and a Cauliflower in this weeks one.
I’m hoping to cover a couple of recipes this weekend, but still haven’t got myself organised as to what they might be. Although I’m definitely inspired by this parsnip and ginger loaf that popped up in my Instagram feed. I’ve currently got my head in the same book that the recipe comes from which is a bonus.
On the writing front, this six months of ‘Writing in Community’ has come to an end and I’ve decided to enrol straight into the next starting on the 11th which means I’m feeling a little in limbo, at the same time as excited. Every day now I try to write a few words and as a consequence I’m on my longest streak with the weekend coffee share! It’s all about the practice.
The #WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up hosted by Natalie the Explorer that serves as weekly heart beat and sort of of a mind-dump. Helps me reflect on my week, with a list of achievements, thoughts and rambles normally whilst drinking a beverage probably listening to music.
