It rained here all day yesterday and this morning I awoke to rain. But my goodness how very pleased the fields and gardens were to welcome it. Already the grass has greened-up and everything looks fresh and new again.
Now, at seven in the evening, there is a sharp breeze blowing but the sun is shining and it is warm. The accountant has been here all afternoon going through the farm accounts for last year so poor Tess has been in for most of the day.
This morning was the 'Strugglers' meeting I go to - a group of us meet and have a quiet morning talking about things which are interesting us, or worrying us. Such a productive and satisfying time I find it. Afterwards we went and had lunch in The Posthorn in our little town.
So I have just walked down 'our' lane with Tess. I didn't feel like it but I really enjoyed it once I got going and I feel much less tired than I did before I started out. Tess enjoyed the doggy smells and I enjoyed the Spring smells - can't be bad.
