Time to sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour.
Tomorrow we'll find out what the garden visitors have to say.
I'd still like some colour in this view from the kitchen window,
but this is as good as I can make it - it'll have to do.
There was little time to cook
This is what simple ham and egg can be made to look like.
Just a touch gastro-pubby but it tasted good.
Ludlow's Dinham Bridge over the Teme
and the castle on the hill above looked good too yesterday.
There was just enough time for a quick trip to do the weekend shop in the market.
And if you happen to be born under the sign of cancer, this is what the Kalendar of Shepheardes, 1604, has to say about it:
The man born under Cancer shall be avaricious. He shall love women, be merry, humble, good, wise and well-renowned; but he shall have damage by envy, and strife and discord among his neighbours. He shall have often great fear on the water; he shall find hidden money, and labour sore for his wife. At thirty-three years he shall pass the sea and shall live seventy years after nature.
The woman shall be furious, incontinent, soon angry and soon pleased. She shall be humble, serviceable, wise, joyous, but shall suffer many perils by water; if any person do her a service, she shall recompense them well. She shall be labouring until thirty years, and then have rest. She ought to be married at fourteen years, and shall have many sons. She shall live seventy years.
As well the man as the woman shall have good fortune, and victory over their enemies.
The more of these things I read the more I realise that even in the 17th century the wise man covered his bases.
See you on Tuesday, friends.
