Day 236 – The Fire Within…

After a really warm day today it turned really cold as night fell, so a good excuse for a fire outside.

Day 231 – Work In Progress…

I spent the afternoon building some new steps in the garden to replace some that had rotted away. Serious construction work with the structure made from 8”x 2” timber. Thank goodness for some decent power tools! Just an hour or so I reckon tomorrow to finish it off …

Day 224 – Pot Of Gold…

The rather unsettled weather just lately has seen storms, heavy rain, strong winds and sunshine all in the same day, and today has been no exception. Late this afternoon a sharp shower followed by bright sunshine created this beautiful rainbow over the fields around us.

Day 222 – Job Finished…

In between the showers and high winds over the last few days, I’ve been cleaning our terrace area of the black algae that has made it a bit of an eyesore. Finished off by installing a rather nice pot stand which hides the pipes etc of the outdoor watering system. Looks much better now!

Day 220 – Chicken Tonight…

Our take on Beer Can Chicken… Chicken was rubbed with Jack Daniels BBQ glaze, and allowed to marinate for a couple of hours before being set up on the BBQ with cola instead of beer inside. With vegetables around the outside and the grill running at around 180°, it took about an hour and a half to cook and was delicious!
