First of all I bought The Farmchildren new gumboots. Look. Aren't they funky in a rubbery kind of way?
I bought them because The Farmchildren need them but also because last year it rained straight after my gumboot shopping. I am hoping The Weather Gods will heed the sign...
The label on the gumboots made me smile.
I loved the bit about them being waterproof. Always a handy quality in a gumboot. I also loved the bit about them being designed for fashion and light work. They will be perfect for The Farmchildren. While we believe in child labour on The Farm, we do keep them on light duties and expect a certain level of style from all workers big or small...
My friend Mrs HG gave me these flowers. Aren't they pretty? I am quite jealous as I am still at the shoveling of compost into garden beds stage of my rose garden.
I found this fantastic recipe for a Spanish type chicken bake thingy over on Beth's blog at Babymac. I am making it for dinner tonight. It smells fantastic. Our local supermarket did not have chicken thighs with bone and skin on so I have made do with drumsticks. And for some reason The Cooking Gods seemed to want me to throw in a red onion. So I did.
It looked great even before it went in the oven.

I will let you know how it goes. I have got a good feeling. (Mainly because Beth is a brilliant cook.)
So there you go. A miscellaneous blog post complete with what I am making for dinner. Happy days.
