A quiet, foggy day

July 11, 2017 – A quiet, foggy day

This morning we woke up to rain and fog, not the best weather to have visitors. We had a short list of things to get done and no need to rush outside.  I spent some time in the kitchen baking and getting snacks ready for the Wednesday Warriors and the guests staying in the cottage tomorrow night.  The result of the time in the kitchen was Garlic Focaccia Bread, Parmesan Croutons, Chocolate Oatmeal Squares and a large harvest of spinach and lettuce washed and drying for part of tonight’s dinner.

We have an abundance of lettuce and spinach from the garden

We did some fine tuning of the yard maintenance but otherwise it was a restful day of reading, knitting and getting our things together for the day off the island tomorrow.

The most notable thing occurred at sunset, the fog was completely surrounding the island and we could not see the mainland but the sun was strong enough to burn through the cloud cover to give us a great ball of fire, breathtaking.
