A quiet day

42/52 for the group 2021 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: P is for Painter

I was a bit behind in processing the weekly alphabet photo. I took this last Saturday but have only just got around to adding it to Flickr. I'm a bit stuck on this week's theme which is "Q is for Quilter". I suspect I will end up counting an off-topic shot for my own weekly challenge, but won't post it to the Flickr group, of course.

In other news today, I did the Welsh Skype chat this morning (6 others plus me) and then this afternoon I wrote to my local Senedd (Welsh parliament) member. In Welsh!

We hope that some politicians with a bit of influence might get involved.

Now the weather is cooler, I seem to be cooking more. I made random veg soup for lunch and I actually baked some sponge puddings the other day.
