I Love Not Camping - Day Three


Making
July's monthly sampler


Eating
I have a chicken in the oven. A whole roast chicken to myself. 
I'm roasting some potatoes and making gravy and bread sauce to go with it. My favourite meal.
I shall be feasting off it for the next few days.

I thought I'd better eat something healthy, so I have added some strawberries to meringues and cream.
Eton mess. Or, eaten mess as it will become.

Observing
The soap and the soap dish (a scallop shell) are completely dry.
Evidently I am the only member of my family not to leave the soap in a scummy puddle of water, and the only one to empty the shell every day.

Enjoying
Eating when it suits me. 
I aim to produce dinner between six and seven when everyone is home, but I'm finding I am eating much later while I am alone.
