With the sky last night being clear and there being no wind, we BBQ’d and sat round a fire.


The rain and resultant humid weather that we have had over the last few days appears to have resulted in some interesting flowers growing amongst the mulch.


I just completed this jigsaw puzzle of Sea Anemones. My first for a long time. It was difficult because the puzzle was not made up of regular shapes. Even some of the edges were not clear. But it was fun to do. 🧩



Completed. I haven’t put Lego together for a long time. This was satisfying. It was a little too much for my grandson.


I spent about three hours preparing our Anniversary dinner last night. It was a Japanese vegan dinner from the cookery book, Vegan Japaneasy: Over 80 Delicious Plant-Based Japanese Recipes.

In the photograph below, on the left is a

  • Shiitake, Onion and Potato Stew, and on the right is a
  • Portobello Mushroom and Onion ‘Sukiyaki’Bowl.

Both have a Mushroom Dashi, and the Sukiyaki Bowl also has a rich Sweet Soy Sauce, recipes for both were also taken from the book.

Outside it was wet and wintery, and so I enjoyed being in a warm kitchen, creating. These were only the second and third dishes that I had taken from Vegan Japaneasy, and I was very pleased with how they turned out.




A double rainbow crossed the sky this morning while I was on the phone to my mother. 🌈
