Today started off on a good note with a hearty breakfast of porridge, followed by a pot of tea (the teapot, incidently, was a present from me to Fergal, (but really from me to me!!); it is enamel and not only gives me delight to look at it, pours beautifully too! I’m so looking forward to picnic-ing with it)
Paper, paper everywhere… (as usual)
My middle boy, (who tends towards the cute side) was telling me how he would just love a hot scone with jam.
So how could I resist such a plea? (don’t they look “perfect”? And tasted rather good too!!)
James’ baptism is next weekend- I’m crocheting a quick little cap; and the shawl: I’m keeping that to have something for Ginnys Yarn Along on Wednesday. I had to deviate somewhat from the plan (was there a plan? Really?)
These little fellows are flitting to and from our window all day…
Our smallest cutie spends his changing time transfixed by the movement a few feet away:
I would gladly have one of those scones too 🙂
Your middle boy clearly tends toward the bright side — the gift of charming you into baking for him is a good one! Children are hard to say no to when they are so sincere. 🙂 They do look delicious. The baby and I have that in common – I am easily distracted by the birds!
that is the cutest flicking bird feeder!! can’t wait to see your bonnet. AND- don’t give up on me, I am SO sorry I haven’t fulfilled my side of our mail deal. I will send your soap! promise.
