Yesterday I sat in the garden!
The sun was so hot that I toyed with the idea of finding my hat! (Then didn’t bother)
I wasn’t just being idle – I was actually doing some paperwork – and I even did some weeding later on. I won the battle with a particularly annoying bramble by the pond. I even managed to fall over AWAY from the pond, rather than INTO it! 🙂
Later, my friend Snowy came to play. Snowy is a dog who isn’t used to ‘visiting’, so this was a process of introducing him to the fun of exploring another garden. He did a very good line in drinking the pond – avoiding the frogspawn. Talent. I think he enjoyed the experience and I hope his dreams were not too hectic. I’ll ring his ‘people’ later today to ask after his health.
After Stuck-in-a-book’s spring clean of the Honey Pot’s shelves, followed by a trip to a charity book store to pass the books on, I now have a steady trickle of people ringing up and turning up with boxes and bags of books to replace them. Spring cleaning is washing a new tide of flotsam, in the shape of books, out of the house and into the Honey Pot. Never mind – it’s good to see new titles and it will soon be that time of year when people descend on me to buy books to take away on holiday (and leave there – or wreck on a beach somewhere in the world.)
I once heard a backpacker waxing lyrical on the role of the cheap paperback as both entertainment and toilet paper. Mmm. Too much information!
