The gales in the night last night were horrendous. I sleep without my hearing aids but the winds were strong enough to keep me awake even without them in. This morning, when I drew back the blinds, I was surprised to find that everything was unchanged. It has poured with rain all day although there is not a breath of wind. Now, at 4.20 the sun is out and it is a lovely day although somewhat colder than of late. I have bought two iris rhizomes and I am now wondering whether to put on my garden gloves and go out and put them in the garden.
A lovely lunch out again today at our regular Sunday lunch venue. I had Salmon Florentine (on a bed of spinach) with vegetables, followed by apple and plum crumble and custard. All very good. Now, replete, I am putting on this blog and then feeding the dog. After that a restful evening.
I see Tom today is bewailing the way in which blogland has shrunk and how many of those we used to communicate with have disappeared into the ether. I think he is right and I feel sad to have lost touch with some people. But I suppose that people lead busy lives and some can't find time or inclination to blog any more. But I do add my voice - please open a blog and communicate. That's what it's all about.
See you tomorrow.
