Produce from my Garden

My Gardening Friend came today, not only did she cut the lawn, she also harvested the rest of my radishes, one of the giant garlics and all my Spanish onions. There were only 4 radishes left and sadly they had become woody.

Here is some pictures of my baby garlic

Plus this tray of Spanish sweet onions (I’ve already eaten 3 yum yum)

Bean tepee

I was looking through my old folder and files to see what I could get rid of and came across this brilliant idea for children and grand-children. Don’t ask where I found it or why I kept it; but I feel I want to share it with my readers. What a brilliant way to grow beans/peas or whatever is a climbing growth. The kids will have lots of fun in their tepee.

Plant a bean tepee that’s large enough for children to play inside. Plant a blackberry patch. Have a bushy area? Cut the bottoms of the bushes up three or four feet, so that it turns into a living fort. Make pathways out of paving stones or wood chips. Put a row of stumps just about anywhere. Get a pile of bricks for kids to build stuff with, or a pile of river-rocks. A stump cut into 1-inch rounds make great stepping-stones, pathways, plates, boats for mice, and many other magical things. But most of all – just do it! The more time you spend outside, the better everyone feels. Any corner of your yard that’s not currently being used can be infused with energy by putting up a tent, tying a tarp overhead, planting a raised garden bed, piling up rocks, or anything that generates interest. Be sure to bring snacks, and drink lots of water, and then put out a picnic blanket and lie back in the shade while your children explore.

Hygge – a Danish word for the Dictionary

There is a new buzz word for the English dictionary and it is the most wonderful word and situation in the world.
It is HYGGE.

I went out today and purchased a little book called “HYGGE – Comfort and Food for the Soul” as I just had to see what the unknown author (I can’t find the name anywhere) had to explain what HYGGE is. I had to smile at the cover that used 10-12 word just to try to translate it and 10 more words to define it.

What can I say HYGGE is just that very hyggeligt.

So I can only say to all my friends and followers have a lovely HYGGELIG New Year eve

In the Canaries

Edna and I arrived at around 7pm and was collected by her daughter Donna who bought us to the flat we are staying at.
It’s a very nice ground floor flat with a covered and an open veranda. Lots of nice outdoor sun space and the covered one is for me.

After one day I started to feel stranded, I just hate to use taxis to go wherever I want to go. Not only that but when I tried to order a taxi they didn’t understand me, so we had to phone Donna and get her to order the taxi, which made me feel even more stranded.

I rented a car for 3 days, so we could go shopping, eating, casinoing and sightseeing when we wanted to, without bothering anyone else.

Dinner and Poker School Evening

I have just had a great dinner/poker school evening with 2 friends. We were supposed to be 5 but one couple couldn’t make it.

Tonight’s menu was my signature dish of chicken legs and onions (cooked in a Dutch oven) with cauliflower-broccoli cheese (not yet published), potato wedges, my raw carrot salad and a nice bottle of Merlot; followed by freshly made decaf coffee.

It was obviously my turn to win; at the end I had 3½ times the starting chips. The last two times we were playing I was in the red.
