Today has been one of those peaceful lazy days of summer, with blue skies and sunshine and barely any wind. Even the neighbours were quiet!
Son and his girlfriend went off on a day excursion to the coastal town of Raglan so I had the house to myself for most of the day.
This evening I have been out watering the garden with a hand-held hose (summer water restrictions have already begun), an enjoyable way to appreciate the cooler balminess of the evening.
After lunch, I began reading The Toll Gate by Georgette Heyer, more a mystery than a romance so a bit different to her other books but still with the historical context. However, the day was so pleasant that I ended up nodding off several times.
I decided Nana-Naps were the order of the day and gave myself up to the luxury.
We all need to treat ourselves sometimes 😊
