I would love to claim Covid is to blame for me forgetting yesterday was a bank holiday, but I can manage to do that quite well without help. It is a bit more annoying when I has reminded the other half a couple of days before. However he then got to tell me which I am sure he enjoyed. Having worked out I wasn’t obliged to work I considered other things I could should be doing. The dining room curtains seemed to be a good starting point. Sadly the curtain we were gifted is just one about the size to cover a door. So no use at all for a 3m wide window. However I had seen a piece of fabric I thought might work when I had been clearing the room. It was almost 6m and the width I needed for the drop. So curtain making became the project for the day and I got both panels made. Unfortunately I didn’t have the right header tape so that is on order and I will attach it to the curtain panels next weekend. I am very pleased to have had the curtain fabric and the lining on hand. Of course it also means I don’t need to find a place to put away the fabric either. It is a medium weight patterned black velvet. It is a bit lighter than I would have picked for curtains, but I like very heavy curtains. For any normal person it is absolutely fine especially lined.
This morning has also been productive, I have harvested the first of my leeks and grabbed the last of my onions. they became leek and potato soup for lunch, and we have a large jar left for later in the week. I find it absurdly satisfying when I can clean up lots of odds and ends of food. The onions weren’t enough for a full batch, but neither was the cream, and I had the crust of the bread to dip in it. Very tasty and all tidy. Next will be our discussion class then paperwork and this evening early dinner (also leftovers and games night. Oh, and I got some quilting done while the soup was cooking this morning. So all in all pretty productive for a day with a lot of not work in.
