Wednesday and the same old weather. It is hard to believe that that glorious Monday is only two days away - it is like a completely different season. My poor old half-done patio looks in a sorry state - I just. hope we have a dry spell so that we can see it finished before Winter. And the same goes for the last spraying of the Mares Tail. In the giant scheme of things, with all that is going on in the world at present, both things seem so petty. The trouble again over the shooting in America, the spreading again on Covid and as yet no end in sight, where will it all end?
My day has been quite uneventful. I had coffee with friend D this morning and we caught up on all our news - that was a pleasant couple of hours. This afternoon I prepared for my friends P and D coming over in their bubble tomorrow from Windermere to have lunch with me. They are to be guinea pigs in the first use of my soup-maker (tomato and basil which is the first one in the book and looks fail-safe but time will tell, there are so many different buttons to press). I have a hair appointment in the morning as I do every Thursday so I have to be well-prepared today.
Earlier today friends called to show me their new puppy - a cross between a Pekinese and a Shidtzu (sorry about the spelling). I am really not happy about all these crossbreeds but I have to say it was quite the prettiest puppy I have ever seen .This is the first time for many years that I have been without a dog - Yorkshire Terrier, Pug, German Short-haired Pointer, Border Terrier - all lovely dogs and I would love one now but my walking is too bad to walk it and it just wouldn't be fair. The lady who walked Tess died very suddenly about six months before Tess and Tess missed her terribly.
Still, we do know when we get our pets that we are going to outlive them (until you get to my age of course) - reading John's post the other day about the dogs he had lost made me sad for him too. Until tomorrow.
