Yesterday was a beautiful if cold day. We decided to have a stay at home day. I have seen so many St. Patrick’s Day parades that I didn’t feel as if I missed out. The morning was beautifully sunny and we spent the some of the time enjoying the heat of the sun in the micro climate in the conservatory. That’s my Mum in the pic, she is staying with us for a couple of weeks.
After lunch we decided to restock the wood pile in the shed.
Yes! That’s my Mum, Lizzie, 77 this year, chopping the logs.
Andy did some chopping too.
Lizzie and I piled the logs in the wheelbarrow….
and I wheeled them up to the shed.
A cold week is forecast, 4-5 degrees C, so it’s nice to have a store of chopped logs.
After all that it was time for tea and cake. I didn’t bake it myself but it was locally made, bought from Patricia’s Homebakes in the local town of Boyle. I haven’t sussed baking in the Rayburn yet. The cake was Coffee and Walnut and it was delicious!
In the evening we had a nice walk through the forest behind the house, back by the road and up the lane to the house. A nice circular route.
Still time to enjoy a swing before heading indoors and watching the Dublin parade on the telly. A full enjoyable day without moving from home.
