My week so far

I was in the local bookshop today and I see I’m not the only person with hygge on my mind, there were several books on this subject; but that’s me always late to the party.

Nothing unusual or that exciting about my week so far but it has been thoroughly enjoyable all the same. I just enjoy the little pleasures in my daily life.

I wanted to try making peanut butter, I found a great website with ‘how to’ instructions for making seed and nut butters. I had a big bag of sunflower seeds so while I waited for an order of nuts to arrive I made sunflower seed butter, I used coconut oil but I would prefer an unflavoured oil. It’s fantastic for breakfast, on toast with some sliced banana. Think I will be making some chocolate hazelnut spread soon.

nut butterWe have had some wet weather but a few frosty days as well, seeing the leaves on the trees with a white frost is rather unusual.

Jack Frost patterns on the windows always  puts a smile on my face.

P1380363I have enjoyed my work this week, it doesn’t matter that I’ve been doing it for over 30 years painting is always challenging, but so rewarding. I moved my painting stuff into the spare room as I have other work going on in the studio. Here’s a sneak peak of my setup, I’m painting a tile mural so I have a large board with wooden edges glued on to keep everything lined up. This is the small mural, there is a much larger one to paint as well.

This is the first paint application, the tiles will be fired several times before it’s finished.

I hope you enjoy the little things in your week too 🙂
