Lighthouse, Lemon Curd and The Moon

08 Dec

1   We had a birthday lunch with friends in Maenporth today, such a beautiful day with warm sunshine, blue skies and seas but I was just too late to catch the sparkler on the birthday boy’s dessert!

2    I made a batch of Lemon Curd today( recipe here) and have potted it in the individual jars that we brought home from our holiday. I  plan to sell them at Ingleheart’s choir on Monday evening as part of our fundraising for our reciprocal trip next Autumn to the Welsh choir who visited us last summer.

3   The moon was visible at dusk tonight and then the lovely Mr S called me to see a beautiful circular pinkish haze around it as darkness came. I expect there’s a name for that, that Alex will be able to tell me.

    I love lemon curd. It reminds me of growing up and my mum’s homemade curd. 🙂

    AnElephant is happy that MyBeautifulFriend lives in the same world as he does, sees the same moon, and enjoys the same beauty in all things.

      Under the same sky! I love that phrase – being under the same sky, seeing the same moon brings us all closer together in this beautiful world of ours. Thank you for your lovely comments, dear Elephant. 🙂
