the day stretches ahead...a sea of gardening, pruning, tidying and generally working off stresses....
What is better still is the week looms ahead too...to be played out with a fork, secateurs, a broom and a sewing machine.

?

And for you?

A music weekend. Yesterday rehearsal and concert with choir and orchestra singing Haydn, Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven's Fantasia.

This afternoon begin rehearsals for Guys and Dolls.

Tonight Beauty and the Beast at our local very old cinema which hopefully, will be preceded by their organist playing on the Christie organ. The very old prices include 50p hot chocolate from the very old kiosk.

Thre were a lot of fire engines out here -a street down last night - 5 someone said and roads closed and police and ambulances - a whole house was on fire! Luckily no one was hurt and it did not spread to other houses. At least the roof has gone though.

Yes Os, I did not believe it was a thing but it is. Heat up a vat of peanut/vegie oil to stupid degrees (350). Lower (very, very slowly) 16 pounder into vat of boiling oil (having turned off the flame). Reignite flame, keep heat around 350 for an hour, turn off flame. Remove perfectly cooked, juicy turkey. Carve and enjoy.

heh. Did one for Christmas, it was tremendous. Post Christmas Mrs Avi buys up disounted frozen turkeys and geese. So we have turkey/goose throughout the year. Gosh we are lucky.

Up early to retrieve little digger from woods as having to be economically active tomorrow. Hauled out without getting stuck in mud (threads passim). Then drove spouse and son to start of long walk and rested with daughter over fry up and pint (chocolate for the girl) in seaside hotel. Joined spouse and son halfway through walk and finished up at NT cafe for tea and cake. Home to get in one of the last log batches of heating season in old tractor, attempted without much success log milling with bandsaw, and hand pollinated peach with paint brush, success tbd in a few weeks. Cleaned mould off air drying hams and wrapped in muslin for further drying. Now listening to Archers with background of daughter's clarinet practice, aroma of roast chicken coming up the stairs.
