June 1st is the technical start of Winter hereabouts....
Time to try a Winter pudding, Apple Pan Dowdy, a good old-fashioned recipe from my lovely friend M.
Reader, it was delicious....
The Garden of Neglect is making quite an effort, with all that heat and humidity banished for a few months.
Mornings and evenings are quite cold, but we have balmy sunny days, with maximums from 20-24C.
So good to be able to wear jeans, and sleeves, again.
Here is the June picture on my Canadian birds calendar.
No names are provided, so I hail my Canadian readers to let me know something about this little yellow fellow, and his lovely purple blooms..
Found some polka dot pants on sale...fun with my white sweater and a B/W scarf..
Mr C has been home for a week, and finds the recovery process quite tedious and painful. But he is a really good patient, and does everything he is prescribed, which is quite extensive exercising. He has now taken a few solo steps, albeit very stiff-leggedly!
The pain continues, and ice packs are used several times a day.
I have to take him to a physiotherapist one day, the Hospital Rehabilitation unit another day, and also doctor check-ups. As well, keeping up my own medical exercises and appointments and helping with his care. Busy times....
I received this beautiful gift from a very special and generous friend.
It is a hand-made journal, made just for me, featuring my own personal loves:
art, sewing, music...
It is a work of art and just so lovely.
Here is a peek at some of the pages, featuring vintage fashions, sewing patterns and notions, and old music:
Thank you H, I love your work so much, and the book is gorgeous..
Stay warm - down to 3c tomorrow morning..
