It has been a gorgeous and sunny (yet still nippy) Sunday here following a moody, broody, rainy Saturday.
Just as a side note: I totally apologize to you guys who are bored by “this-is-what-I-did!” blog posts. Cath and I use them to see into each others’ lives. It’s one thing to skype, but you can’t show everything you do and see via video chat. So it’s a way to keep my twinie in the loop, visually. If you get bored, I apologize — and make it up to you with photos of cute puppies. So on to “this-is-what-I-did”ness:
Daisies seem to like temperamental Scottish weather:
Matt and I have discovered kedgeree: a delicious combination of smoked fish, soft-boiled egg, coriander/cilantro, a bit of curry powder — deeelicious. It’s like comfort food. I call it British fried rice.
We made a friend in our courtyard (Brits call it a “common garden”) we share with the block:
I finally got around to making these Mibo owls:
Matt and I tried out a new local café in our ‘hood. I think all cafés should have leather wing-backed chairs. This is what Matt looks like when he is humoring me pre-caffeine fix:
I’ve been a bad vegetarian, but I love smoked fish of any kind — with eggs apparently (see also “kedgeree”):
A perfect place for coffee and
We smushed our noses against the glass of our favorite German bakery:
And gave in and bought these (to hell with the diet! — furtive guilty looks —):
Another local café looking pretty against a budding tree and quitessential Scottish clouds (always threatening rain and teasing you with peeps of blue sky):
This weekend we really swore off any type of good eating: fish and chips! But you can tell we felt guilty enough to sprinkle some mung bean sprouts about and put it on a bed of spinach:
Me enjoying the sun. Can you see the clotheslines behind me? We had just hung up our sheets:
One last photo of our cute, furry neighbor — I love when dogs look like they are smiling (warms the cockles):
I hope you guys had a lovely weekend too! I swear Matt and I don’t always just frolic about eating greasy food and pastries. We were grumbly all Saturday for no good reason (rainy, cloudy weather perhaps?) and spent hours just watching Dr. Who and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. I doubt you’d want to see a grumpy Lar slumped on the couch eating ice cream staring at diamante wedding dresses.
How was Orlando?! We haven’t spoken in almost a week! TOO. LONG.
Isn’t this puppy so cute?! She was so sweet and would just roll around in the grass looking so happy.
Matt and I finally saw that Dr. Who about the weeping angels. Uber-creepy.
Can’t wait to catch up with you! You need to do a “this-is-what-I-did” post soon for me — okay?
