Friday again - how quickly it comes round. It is almost eleven o'clock and I have read the comments on yesterday's post - and commented - and moved on. Now my mind has to turn to what to write about today. At my age it is very good to have to do this - keeps the old brain working. The weather is always a good place to start and we have woken up this morning to a much colder day with the promise of heavy showers with sleet and snow mixed in. We have just had one of those but now the sun is out and the sky is blue and the patio is drying up nicely. The weather man also says that after today and tomorrow the weather will improve and by the middle of next week it may be up to twenty degrees. My old bones will welcome that.
I have no side effects from my second Pfizer vaccination yesterday. I am a bit achy and weary but can't blame that. However, because it is so cold, I shall not venture out with Priscilla today.
Looking out of my window as I sit here I see that yesterday's sun has brought out a wave of miniature daffodils planted for me by my gardener just after I went into hospital with a broken hip. Good for the soul.
See you later if anything occurs to liven up the day.
Well it is now 'later' and nothing has 'occurred' apart from the delivery of a new pair of ankle boots - because of the weakness in my right ankle (started because I broke it some years ago and now much worse because arthritis set in) I need extra support around the ankle and can no long wear anything resembling sandals. I can't say I am feeling brilliant this afternoon - it is now a lovely - but cold-day but I have no energy to walk round. I am beginning to wonder if this is, after all, an effect of my vaccination yesterday. But it is pleasant sitting here at my computer and looking out into the sunlit garden and it will be an opportunity after writing this, to make my notes ready for my 'presentation' for my Book Group.
But this will do for today. I have said hello to you all so enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you tomorrow when I hope there will be at least something more exciting to report to you.
