My thoughts have wandered towards the heating switch too............... and thoughts of getting out my 'winter' wardrobe items (not many, but a few long-sleeved tops and knitted stuff)..... but holding off for the moment! I've been glad of the cosy throw I keep on my settee! 2 days ago
jeff is gone thru oct 1st - at the earliest. he hasn't finalized the return plans yet, but the tour ends in chicago! i'm enjoying bad tv & working on some crochet projects! hope your week is off to a great start! 8 days ago
If you have any kind of 'scoop & weigh' shop near you, they're worth a try for dried pears.......... I made a pear and marzipan cake one year (can't remember where the recipe was from - might have been Nigella Lawson!) but didn't like it when it was made! Last year I made a vegan Rum Tortuga cake which I really liked - might make it again - we're really spoilt for choice when it comes to Xmas cake options, aren't we!?!?!
I see you've dedicated a blog to me - just going to read it!
