    good evening all :)

    4.4 today

    Sunday again, adds shape to the week ;)

    Thinly sliced a couple of steaks and cooked with shallots and sliced mushrooms in a cream and paprika sauce today :) cauli, broccoli and carrots on the side.

    Mum and mr gee had 'bread and butter pudding' made with a thinly sliced hot cross bun (which Mum bought when she went for her pension :)), the custard portion was a mixture of double cream, water and egg sweetened with a mixture of erythritol and truvia to keep the carbs down. More cream to serve with.

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    @gennepher - love today's ninja oak tree, very gestural :joyful: and greetings to your favourite furry foot warmer ;)

    @dunelm - I really like today's exclamatory crow, like a beady eyed professor waiting for an answer, so much character :joyful:

    @lindisfel - such fine scenery in your photos and I like the sky, so much light :)

    @Muddy Cyclist - Wow, that's stunning now it's completed, lovely contrasts and great depth. Very well painted :joyful:

    art bit -
    ink study of a hedge remnant by the road between Mum's and here.

    Hi geeful,
    It was a beautiful day in Cumbria today, it felt like Spring was in the air. Chaffinches, robins and song thrushes were singing and the garden is full of snow drops that the cold weather has kept back and hopefully will keep flowering another month.
    regards
    Derek

    His Lordship is now talking to me. He slept between the fleece blankets on my bed last night, and so I got a more comfy sleeping position. No art contribution from him this morning apart from being my hot water bottle.

    Another digital tree...in Procreate...

    5.5 this morning. Just one more coffee before the dog walk. So lovely it is drier and milder outside.

    @Muddy Cyclist how is Moet. Has the You Move helped ,and hopefully not upset his stomach.

    Thank you for your exclamatory crow compliments. Sunday steak sounds right up my street - fabulous.
    Good hedge study from you. Will it go to colour?

    Moet is no longer crying out so tablets are working and so far stomach is fine, they usually take a few weeks before we see stomach upset. Moet is ageing very quickly, he was the strongest of the litter but all his siblings have had problems with joints and had to be put to sleep as did his mother and an uncle so we expect that difficult decision will have to be made for Moet in the not too distant future.

    Good morning everyone from a damp and overcast start here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of pork with eggs and spinach came in at 4.8 this am

    Fabulous day yesterday and with youngest bubble wrap kid, perambulated along the prom (with an independent air) - not though the Bois de Boulogne. Out at 9 and back by 12 - route must (must) take in the only open public loo.
    Bumbling waffling championship contender Now-then Zwhere-are-we, quartermaster for the issuing of vaccines on the telly this morning - had to be muted after only 10 seconds due to hesitation, repetition and deviation. “The, the, the, the, the.....”

    A quick sketch this morning and a messy practice portion on my backing paper. Have a marvellous Monday, write out your own road map to the end of the tunnel and get your names down for team sports. Time for koffy.

    I love both paintings @dunelm, especially the 'messy' practice portion as you explain it. I keep all mine and they do become paintings at a later date...

    Good Morning and 5.3 for me today. Result of the Tuna Steak in a rich Italian spicy Sauce, sourced from an Italian cook book @ianpspurs :)

    Very wet here and no prospect of it clearing until lunchtime and so a Morning indoors. No Muddy Cycle rides I will venture out Tuesday.

    A good Zoom meeting with our Quire yesterday afternoon, no singing but 2 hours passed in the blink of an eye.

    Keep safe and warm.
