How speedily the days fly by (especially when you're having fun) - it is not as though I do anything much these days - just living is about as much as I can manage. It was my Tesco order day- due to come between nine and ten this morning. It came at a couple of minutes past nine, just as I was managing to push Priscilla along the front path with my newly-potted Gazania (I brought it in last night as there is a threat of a frost (yes at mid-summer) here at present.
The sun was already out and within five minutes the one flower was out (they go in and out with the sun) - it is called 'Tiger Lily' and the flower is exquisite). I came back in, washed out the fridge and put the food away, taking some things out into the garage. Standing in the garage I realised just how long it must be since I had cleaned the garage and so I started. Bear in mind I can only walk with the aid of Priscilla and have to be constantly on my guard against falling over. I cleaned out all the cupboards in the old sideboard, throwing away bits and pieces which have been there since I moved in four years ago (it is a good day to do it as it is bin day tomorrow). I washed down the window sill and the top of the sideboard. How much better it looked. You know that feeling of satisfaction you get at a job well done? Well I got it even if it did take me three hours rather than the half hour it would have taken me in my mobile days.
Since then I have done more or less nothing - just sat in the chair with my feet up and read the paper. At tea time I took Priscilla round again to the front door and brought in my Gazania. Already the sun was going in and it was chilly - after a pleasant, warm, sunny day. Picking up the plant pot it radiated damp warmth - wonderful growing conditions - long may they continue - but oh how we do need rain.
Legs very wobbly tonight after too much mobility but nothing a good night's sleep won't put right.
