A few more English days....


I checked another line off my "to do" list. Friday I went up to Worcester to see the Cathedral and to a small pottery just outside Gloucester. Both were well worth taking the time out of packing and cleaning!The cathedral is gorgeous. It is right on the river Servern and we were lucky enough to have sunny...that's right...Sunny day! (no way was I staying in to pack when the sun is out!!!!)
I loved this little "sleeping monk" we found on the ceiling in one of the side chapels!

The stained-glass window were beautiful too....
So for the second year in a row my chili has come in second...oh well, isn't the saying always a bridesmaid? Anyway, I am ok with that since the guy who came in first had promised me his recipe for cheesecake which is absolutely wonderful. My Dh on the other hand had his hopes up for first place...men!

Our computer gets packed on Tuesday this week so I my posting my sporadic through October...

Hi Siobhan,
I love the pictures of the cathedral- We enjoyed visiting Winchester Cathedral and a number of churches in London when we were there many years ago.

I am no longer blog less- if you would like to check it out - here is the address:

Enjoy the time in Britain before you go back to the States.
Regards,

Thanks for the beautiful pictures of England. I don't blame you - no packing on sunny days! Love that pottery too!

ooh, that vaulted ceiling and tile floor is gorgeous. hmm, think overly competitive DH needs to make the chili himself - that'll show him. good luck with the rest of the packout!

The detailed work on that cathedral is breathtaking. Enjoy your last few days on the other side of the pond and safe travels. ~ksp

Ohh and look at that tile floor. Better show that to Bonnie, as I know she'll want to use that idea in a border. What great colors in the stained glass windows. You are going to share the cheesecake recipe with the rest of us aren't you?

There is lots to enjoy here. The sleeping monk is so NEAT. I'd have to say the outside of the Cathedral brings my imagination to life.
