On My Walk Today......

...................I saw this beautiful rainbow. As you can see from the dark and ominous sky, we had a spot of rain! And thunder. The temperature has plummeted and the forecast is rather gloomy for the rest of the week.
The slow cooker is on and when I've finished all my chores later I will be able to tuck into a yummy casserole. ( I love the slow cooker, it's like magic to me, pop everything in and forget about it, then hours later, voila! a meal! And very little washing up!

This cheeky chap loves his perch. Must be able to see much more from up there.
Hmm, what shall I cook in the slow cooker tomorrow................
p.s My excerise regeme is working, I've lost a whole stone (14lbs) already... yeah!

Wow...terrific colorful shot of rainbow that looks like it's coming out of that mountain/hill/volcano behind it.

Cocky Rooster on his perch is colorful too.

Major congrats on your loss of a stone! Fourteen pounds is huge. All in one month and five days? Wow. I am impressed. Keep up the good work.

I love the phrase "I've lost a whole stone." Much more interesting than pounds. congrats. I know that little animated figure is sure busy. thanks too for the gorgeous rainbow. Enjoy your slowly simmered meal.

14 pounds!! Wow, it sounds like it really is working. I like a slow cooker too, but I work longer than most recepies cook, so I have to use a timer.

I LOVE that rainbow picture. How lucky you were to catch that. Did you find the pot of gold at the end?

Cheryl said...

First I want to say congratulations for losing the weight, I know how difficult it is and you must feel great. Good job!
Next, I want to say that the rainbow is absolutely gorgeous! I would have been in a trance. Thanks for capturing it and sharing:)
Finally, I LOVE my slow cooker. It seems that every meal that I cook in it is succulent. I love the convenience and lack of work that it involves also. I hope that you enjoyed your casserole.

Lovely pics Jude, can't wait to replace my camera!

Jenny said...

I also use my slow cooker a lot, can't beat it! Do you pre-cook anything or just put it all in raw?

Cynthia said...

I haven't used a slow cooker in years. What a good idea, Jude. I remember I used to like the finished tasting meal with little effort. What a lovely rainbow! Your are enjoying Crete with style. btw I posted rainforest pics for the assignment you gave me last week. Did you see them? <3

Cynthia said...

Oh and you lost 1 stone, wow! I'm inspired. Great job, there! I bet you feel much more energy? <3
