Sunny Side Up!

This post has nothing to do with eggs! But the forecast for this week is showing its sunny side ~ eggsactly!

I noticed more signs of sunshine in the garden today ~

So what to do in this spring-like weather? I could clean up more of the garden ~ but that sounds a little too much like 'work' at the moment, and I think the birds like it just the way it is for now ;) ...

I know, I could go on a short holiday ~ because I can!

That's what I've been planning today. I phoned a friend and we are off to Seattle for a few days. We'll be hopping on the Clipper on Thursday and staying a couple of nights just to have a change of place. While we are in Seattle, we'll check out the Pike Place Market among other venues.


This evening I decided to try out a crumpet recipe. They are heart-shaped because naturally ;) that's the shape of the pancake/crumpet/'whatever' forms I have on hand.

The handle shows as a shadow ~

Would you like to join me for tea...and crumpets?
They look like they are sunny side up, too. :)

  1. How lovely to just pop over to Seattle and hang out at Pike Place Market! I wonder if the "low flying fish" shop is still there... Look at all that sunshine ahead! Is that a yellow crocus? Very sunshiny.

  2. Hi Nikki ~ Yes, I'll watch for flying fish ;) I'm also going to take the opportunity to buy some of that CeraVe cream you mentioned while I'm in the States. The pot of yellow crocuses and some other little spring flowers (that usually get nibbled away) was given to me a couple of years ago by a friend and it's a sweet reminder when the flowers pop up. Sunshine is right :)

  3. Nothing like a bit of sunshine to cheer everything and everybody up. It actually reached a sunny 7C here yesterday but I think we are back to 2s and 3s today.
    Look forward to reading about any flying fish you encounter ;)

  4. Lovely weather forecast so you're going away! Anyway a short break sounds like a wonderful idea so enjoy yourself.
    Tea and crumpets sounds perfect and I've got some delicious raspberry jam to go on them!
    Sunny here today and I may even get to do some plotting tomorrow, just a bit of tidying up as it's very soggy.

  5. Hi John ~ Glad to hear you had some sunshine ~ it definitely lifts the spirits. I'll be on flying fish lookout :)

    Hi Flighty ~ Yes, it does seem weird that I'd head away once the sun shines but I'm not going too far so the forecast is similar there, too. Raspberry jam on the crumpets would be delicious! I hope you were able to get to the plot and check it out!

  6. Yes please, I really like crumpets dripping in butter! Today we've had non-stop rain, and the garden is under water. Beautiful primrose, I can't wait for mine to flower in the borders. Enjoy that sunshine with your friends, while it lasts! x

  8. Oh dear, I hope you haven't retired from this blog! Or maybe you got hit by a flying fish... You are missed, Glo.
