Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Posted: 04/01/2017 at 16:35

Quiet here this afternoon. My cold is over the worst.

Hasn't got above freezing today so horses' water was frozen. Means carrying water in watering cans from by the house. I did have some 30L containers especially for that, to push in the wheelbarrow, but haven't used them for 2 years, last winter was mild. But they've disappeared. I expect someone, thinking they weren't used for anything , threw them away.

Frosty, -7° in Dordogne

Morning all.

-7° here. Heating oil has just been delivered so heating turned off to let it settle. OH has lit the woodburner, also the gas heater in the kitchen.

I clean the windows here, but not as often as I should, there are so many of them, also internal doors with glass panes. The only window cleaner I've found here is English and he lives in the Charente, miles away. But French windows open inwards so you don't have to go up a ladder outside.

That's a beautiful book, Pat.

Not a photo from my garden, but it's filling my kitchen with scent, present from son 1.

Gorgeous Chicky. I read your description on the Forkers thread, so thank you for posting.

Weird, I type, then do the photo but the photo is always first.

How do you get your typed bit to come before the photo? Whatever I do the photo comes first and always in the reverse order of how I post them.

Oh bother, I hadn't meant to post mine, I was going to post violas, but computer went all slow and showed a black page so I just clicked. Photo hadn't appeared at that stage.
