time to dream


It is a quiet Sunday morning.
There is an apple cake in the oven
and leek soup for lunch.
I will wash the kitchen floor
and listen to Trollope while I iron.
After lunch we will go out to walk
through the autumn leaves.
When it is dark I will draw the curtains,
light the candles and knit for a while.

The first hellebore flowers have appeared.
I thought you would like to know that.

    1. It is outside my back door and catches the early morning light. I will have more in pots next year - they are delightful.

  3. Ooh which Trollope? One of the Timothy Wests or the dramatised Barchester Chronicles. I'm listening to the latter. Or maybe you mean Joanna.

  5. I love how you can you make washing the floor and ironing sound idyllic

    1. Not sure that scrubbing the floor is idyllic - perhaps I should report myself under the Sales Description Act.

    1. Awesome - you can do mine as well because I got bored after one shirt.

  7. Seems like we were all ironing at the same time.
    We're not alone!

    1. Yes - but you are ironing in POSITANO which is much more exotic than my tiny kitchen.
