Hello again, blog friends and lovely readers! It's time again for our Here & Now post as part of the monthly link-up hosted by Sarah of Say! Little Hen. You can find all of this month's links in the February Here & Now at Say! Little Hen to explore what's happening in everyone's Here & Now - please join us if you wish! I am currently:
Loving // The sound of two very tired happy dogs and one very cosy cat all snoring (yes, snoring...) behind me while I type.
Eating // The very first ripened tomatoes of the season from the veggie patch. Yum!
Drinking // Nothing at the moment, but I think that soon it shall be wine o'clock after a long and busy day.
Feeling // A little excited but also a little wistful as it seems we will be moving again late this year.
Making // Easter toys and prepping posts for the dog blog. The dogs never seem to mind being a little ahead of the holidays. ;)
Thinking // That this may the the first and only harvest from my wee little fruit trees. Hopeful the new owners will enjoy many!
Dreaming // Of the future and what it might bring.
Since last month's Here & Now, the will we / won't we of moving yet again has been agreed, but we won't be heading for a new country this time around, just a new town and a new home. No details or dates yet, but nothing imminent. Our weather is still cool and wet, but things are maturing slowly. After last week's Hitchcock-esque bird attach on my nectarines (so sad!) the veggie garden and trees are now an ugly but practical jumble of bird netting. I've been looking at the other Here & Nw posts and am ridiculously jealous of Julie's tomatoes (again!), Pip's bowl of gifted eggplant, and everyone's lovely flowers. Admittedly, I do have plenty of waterlogged wind battered but still lovely flowers. Ha! It's hard to lament the rain and cool weather when I know that many of you are wishing for it. I'll be back to read your posts in earnest and comment tomorrow - making dinner (and pouring wine!) beckon at the moment. Rumble rumble.
P.S. On the subject of rumbling tummies, since my fellow Here & Now bloggers often leave me feeling quite hungry :) I have added a little something sweet from my recent kitchen fun at the end of the post - you can find the recipe here. Happy Valentine's Day!
