It certainly wasn't like that yesterday !

Seasons ... we have four of them! Now some love winter, while others prefer summer. Speaking personally I have two favourites, and they are Spring and Autumn. Of course that isn't to say I dislike the others ... in fact I think we should embrace each day, perhaps 'grab it with two hands' and make it the very best we can! 

Looking back to when it was like this 

and tennis was being played

it certainly wasn't like that yesterday!
In fact it was more like this

and thicker coats and hats were needed

except of course if you were indoors and practicing ballet steps ...

This cooler weather, I'm sure Grandma is cooking one of her lovely casseroles

pork casserole rustic style - such a simple recipe - it's one of her favourites

Serves two
2/3 pork chops remove fat and cut into small pieces
2 large leeks chopped
1 hand full of button mushrooms
1 large sliced carrot
1 table spoon of dried mixed herbs
Approx 1 pint of gravy stock
Salt and pepper to taste.

Clean, cut and place all ingredients in a casserole dish or earthenware oven proof pot with lid. Pour over the stock and cook at 190c in an electric oven 90 mins. Gas mark 5. I usually give it a little stir every 30 minutes!

What could be easier, very lowcarb, real food and tastes great. 

Whatever you are doing today have a good day
perhaps 'grab it with two hands' and enjoy it as best you can

All the best Jan

It's been so cold these past couple of days, it's warmed up a little again here today, thank goodness. I so agree, we should all grab these happy times with two hands, we never know what's around the corner.

We keep getting days in the 70's and then in the 50's, my body hates it. I wish it would pick a season and just stay there.

Always a treat to see those little people.
The weather has been chilly these past couple of days, the fog has barely lifted from here today.

I really don't have a favorite season. I am happy to live in a place with all four and like them all.
Lovely photos.

Oh I am dreaming of those nice summer days right now too, but this is the best time to make the soups and such, the only time of year my hubby asks for them :)
