Sometimes things just catch up with me. By the end of yesterday I was exhausted, so after making tasty dinner I went to bed with a book really early and slept the sleep of need. I'm not always a good sleeper so luckily my body has a way of insisting I slow down .( Slow down, you move to fast). Today I feel much better but am trying to take things at a leisurely pace. After racing to the clothes lines ( LOL) as a sudden shower dropped in, I have even more excuse to not exert myself today . (there is no point in going slowly to the line to grab the near dry washing is there? ...it doesn't wait ) WE WANT the RAIN so MORE PLEASE!
Molly I'll take some time to work on Where I'm from. I don't like formulas or painting by numbers , so I'll figure my own way around it. One programme I have enjoyed on TV ( and they are few and far between lately ) is," Who Do You Think You Are?" Some countries have such extensive records it makes tracing Family History really intriguing. I know quite a lot of mine so may go back as far as I can, and do, Within My Memory and Before my Memory.
Todays photos are of 2 pots seen within the photo of the area of my red seat. One a pretty succulent that has put long stems of flower down onto the lime chip below ( hope the plant doesn't die off now after that big effort ); the other is a small Vireya Rhododendron called Saxon Blush my elder son gave me 2 years ago. It is a little sweety and I really treasure it as he made the effort to find me something he thought I'd like. ( and I did....I repotted it in a terrocotta pot and it seems very happy, this is about the 4th time it has flowered )
Books I've been reading.
I eventually finished "Alaska," by Michener and enjoyed it and learned so much. I then read "Wyoming Stories," by Annie Proulx. She writes well but the characters annoyed me intensely and most of the subject matter too, but I finished it. Now I am reading"Chasing the Chimney Sweep,"by Selwyn Parker, and laughing a lot so will soon have it's 250 pages devoured.
