The sun is shining - that lovely late afternoon golden kind of sun, and the light is streaming through the skylights in the kitchen. It is wonderful. Golden, not bright ,white light. I have had a visit from the babes, who arrived bearing German cinnamon biscuits. I am doomed. Apple cake, chocolate cake, cinnamon biscuits........ I think I am having lettuce for supper.
Remember when I mentioned payrolls and the possible lack of credit lines to fund them? Guess what was on the news here this morning? It appears that some venerable institutions here, including county and district councils, for heaven's sake, saw fit to invest their millions in Iceland. Why they have millions to invest is another question I will certainly be wanting an explanation for if they attempt to raise council tax here, but that is another story. Anyway, they may not be able to meet their payrolls in 8 days time. Oops. The government will, of course, extend them new credit lines but if one suddenly is not paid, it stands to reason that maybe one is not insured through work either. As I said then, this affects everyone, safe jobs or not.
The allotment is still spewing out veg, and I have a huge bag of potatoes, beetroot, beans and courgettes to sort. The beans have gone beserk all of a sudden. And I still have half a bucket of apples to do something with, but I have run out of freezer space. I am really thankful for all the food though. Fresh and homegrown. And free!
I hope you are all having a great relaxing Sunday...... the new working week with all its inevitable challenges will be here soon enough.
To all my Canadian friends, Happy Thanksgiving!
