1 We have a beautiful Sailors’ barometer and today it is overflowing telling us that another storm is on the way! Sailors used weather glass barometers to forecast the weather. These simple, yet scientific, devices accurately predict the weather by barometric pressure. Basically, when the water level in the spout is high, it means low air pressure (rain, snow, storm, etc) is imminent. When the water level is low, the barometric pressure is high, and that indicates good weather.
2 Delightful Skyping with KJ and the Grandbabies this evening. It’s such fun to watch them playing and to see their excitement at seeing us on their television!
3 Had lovely friends round for dinner tonight and I made this delicious and simple but effective starter of prawns and smoked salmon.
