Sunday

Sunday - it comes round so quickly but now that we have got into the habit of always eating at The Golf Club Sundays have become bearable.  There are five of us, all widows, going today and the visit usually takes up around three hours so that by the time we all get back home it is almost evening.

E and T's Golden Wedding celebration was lovely.   After a very dull and windy day the sun finally came out just in time.   Although it was windy their garden is very sheltered so we didn't notice.   In fact the garden was very pretty with a lovely display of one of my favourite old roses - American Pillar.   Around fifty people enjoyed a great selection of nibbles - I ate far too many but they were too good to resist.

Today has dawned with a little more sun promised and much less in the way of breeze.   Time to get dressed (dressing gowns are  so comfortable when one lives alone) and take Tess for a pleasant walk down the pasture, which has been recently silaged so that the grass is short.   We might even get as far as the farmer's resting place - a spot we love to visit.

Hope you enjoy your walk with Tess and that the sun comes out, it is very dull here. Though welcome the rain, it has made the grass grow, covered in clover which is rather pretty ;)

Dear Pat, dressing gown time is one of my favourite times of the day - but I have been enjoying that not only since living alone :-)
The Golden Wedding sounds lovely, and I am glad you get to meet your friends for lunch again today so that none of you has to spend the entire day alone.
It sounds like something out of a book - "The Widows' Sunday Lunch Club", and I am certain all five of you could tell stories of your lives that would make not for just one book, but for a whole series.

Sounds like a good day ahead and a good start to it, Pat. Overcast and breezy here and forecast to remain like that all day, although it is supposed to be humid with it and so, not cold.

I am in my dressing gown as I write this comment - so comfy. The Golden Wedding anniversary party sounds idyllic and how nice for you and your widowed friends that you have each other to make Sundays more enjoyable. Enjoy your walk with Tess, and the fine weather.

I know what you mean about dressing gowns. Some days I don't have a shower till around eleven o' clock - depending on what I am doing and the weather outside. Will you be having a round of golf at the golf club, dressed in your new golfing gear?

Hope you had a lovely walk!

Yes, there are no rules when you're retired, or living alone--dress and eat when you like! I am often still in my robe at ten in the morning, although I admit it feels lazy. Have a lovely visit with your friends.

Sounds like a god day. In summer, I wear short cotton dresses and it is hard to take the farm out of the gal. My kids are forever telling me not to bend over, but I do anyway. I just tell them then the neighbors shouldn't look.

I think you are filling your week with lovely friends. After all a family can be made up of many friends.
Your weekend sound and walk sounds wonderful to me.

cheers, parsnip, thehamish and george

Sounds like a pleasant day to me. I must go work on kitchen cleaning, then I can knit and watch TV.

A new tradition for Sunday. A walk to visit the Farmer and lunch with friends.

Rachel - wish I was as strong minded.

I don't possess a dressing gown!

I love my dressing gown time, but it is getting longer....Especially when it is a day for doing the dreaded physio exercises.
