Project 365 week 44

Sunday

Starting to feel the nip in the air now, or more so on my feet. Decided to bring out my new slippers, my last ones are four years old and have lasted well but beginning to wear a bit thin.



Monday

Took Bob to gymnastics again. Too dark to go up the country estate for a walk so just wandered round the streets instead. 

So put on map my walk, put in my headphones and did just over two miles before heading back to pick Bob up.

exercise



Tuesday

A beautiful day, went for a walk along the river, just love this time of year with all the autumnal colours reflecting in the river.

Difficult to tell what is tree and what is reflection, but looks very pretty anyway.  Did just over two miles again, was just enjoying the wander.


walk, exercise, may my walk


Wednesday

Well it rained and it rained and it rained, put paid to the plans I had, So I decided to make some spicy pumpkin and tomato soup. Can see the recipe here if you are interested. Very yummy it was too.

seasonal, warming, tasty,


Thursday

Into the town for a dental check up. He smoothed off a chip on one of my back teeth and a quick polish, back in six months. Rain had stopped so took the twins out with Bob and daughter this afternoon. You can see their exploits here if you want a wee read,




Friday

Made a fruit cake, put a layer of marzipan in the middle. Did not leave it long enough to cool before I tipped it put and the marzipan was still runny. So my cake slid all over the place and broke. Still tasted good.



Saturday

Going out to two different Halloween themed evenings today. Both in fairly rural locations, so torches are advisable. Saw these in Wilko when in the town on Thursday and thought they were a great buy at £2 each, May well buy another couple next time I am in the town. A lovely size at just under four inches and with seven led bulbs in each then nice and bright.

  1. What a beautiful photo of the tree over the river - it is hard to tell where branches end and water begins! The spicy tomato and pumpkin soup sounds lovely, will give that a go!

  8. Puddle jumping is a lot of fun, the twins have been at it today :-) I need to get some new slippers, I love boot slippers at this time of year. Even though the cake broke it looks and sounds delicious, I love marzipan! x #project365

    1. I always wear slipper boots because it is not my feet that feel the cold it is my ankles so these suit me much better.
      I love marzipan as well.

  9. i have dropped a cake on the floor when removing it from the oven before - it is gutting isn't it? i need some slippers - i have thick bedtime socks but slippers would be better (adding them to my christmas list, if i can wait that long!). the soup looks and sounds lovely - perfect to warm you up. x

    1. hate it when you spend ages making stuff and then it ruins, just thought it would let people know not all my cooking goes smoothly.

  10. Liking the new slippers. I'm amazed how long you get them to last. Mine only last about 6 months, but I do wear them a lot as I work from home.

    1. my last pair were a competition win and worth £30 so think that is why they have lasted so well. I would never spend that amount but makes you wonder if cheap is false economics

  11. The soup looks tasty. Bet it was nice and warming with the cayenne in it.
    I like those little LED torches. I have one in the car, very handy for walking across dark car-parks.
