Several new things this weekend – 2 crochet related that I can’t share picture of yet as they are gifts – but the colours are scrummy and the hat fun (I’ll share pictures when I can)
A taste discovery – the fresh pieces of coconut sold in tubs in the chill counter of my supermarket – it tastes really fresh and has a lovely texture – nicer than dried coconut
A technology discovery. I’ve been frustrated because LiveWriter, which I use to write blog posts, has stopped working and Microsoft it not supporting it anymore. I went searching for an alternative and found an opensource version which feels just the same and is being supported. My only grumble is that the spell checker does not seem to be active. So if you too have been wanting an alternative to Live Writer I recommend Open Live Writer – working well so far this weekend.
And seeing as none of my new things have an illustration here are two that I captured for the winter scavenger hunt – more bare trees
and lots of chimneys – all of these are on one house
Looking forward to haggis for dinner today – I won’t be attending a Burns Night dinner with all the pageantry, poetry and speeches but I will be eating haggis.
A big wave to you all and it seems appropriate to use a Burns wish for a good week – bless us with content
