And It's Warm Again

Bless - thank you for your kind thoughts. I feel so supported and hugged. 

Cherie - thank you. I'm sure it's all nothing, but unfortunately I have a well developed imagination. I really appreciate the kind thoughts. 

Sharon - Thank you, I really appreciate all the good wishes, they help so much.

Athene - I think I may have to join the gym (grossly overweight and creaky as I am) because there are times I can't get into the shower as it's set over the bath. That will be a win-win, though, if I can get any fitter. I hope that bathroom fitting is going quicker for you.

Hazel - there are swathes of witches having cozy mysteries while knitting, cooking or being a make up artist. It seems to be a genre in itself. I may have read several, or several dozen. I admit nothing. And yes, I have a few ideas...

It's warming up again. I do not approve at all. Also, I've done very little. I cooked a chicken crown early in the morning and we had it cold with coleslaw and bread and butter for dinner. I may try a rice salad tomorrow. I'm making a decision that I'm not dashing about in this weather, especially with a half done bathroom.

I visited the nurse for the annual check up. It was ridiculously warm walking over there at 9am. On the other hand, I walked out of the house and over to the doctor's surgery. That is an achievement that I am not sure that I could have done a few years ago. I could always do stuff for bear, but not for me. But today I did it, so I'm taking it as a win. As I haven't taken a pic today, here's one I took some time ago.

This is from 13 August 2021. Things were a lot greener then.

I didn't get a pic of the crab apples on the way back. They are ripening nicely and the trees are loaded! I also picked up a new hoodie for bear as the one he had was too small. Bear is now wearing a man's medium. Which reminds me, I need to pick up a belt as I can't find the last one I got him. He may have the height of a medium man, but he doesn't yet have the width. 

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. Well done walking to the surgery for your appointment with the nurse! I'm assuming you walked back, too? That is wonderful! I am finding out that I can't walk for longer than 10 minutes without my left hip hurting me! Which is not good, at all!

  2. Hope the appointment went well. The heat tends to take a lot out of me. I don't have much energy and sometimes just moving about makes me all sweaty - which I don't like!
