Sometimes I look back over the week and wonder where all my days have gone. If I didn’t keep a daily journal, I’d be wondering what I had done on each of those days as well.
Our weather has been so wet, wet, wet, this week and the best thing to do is stay indoors. I’ve not been idle (all the time!), though. My display cabinet, with ornaments, crystal etc. in it, is now sparkling clean, and my book shelves are being cleaned and the books organized a bit better than they were.
I added to my collection this morning when visiting a charity shop with my younger son, purchasing this Famous Five book. I used to own quite a lot of them but they have disappeared in different directions over the years.
I know they are children’s books, but I actually enjoy reading one on a dreary afternoon. This is not one I have read before, so I think I will be settling into my lounge chair with it this afternoon.
Last weekend I was invited out to dinner with some friends. It was a lovely evening together, just five of us, and not something I have done for a long time.
There were three lemon trees on the property, absolutely laden with fruit, and I was thrilled to be given a bag of them to bring home.
Some of the lemons I have sliced into rings and dehydrated – I thought they might be nice to plonk into a glass of chilled water over summer time (not something I have tried before).
I also dried some peel, which will probably get used when cooking different meals.
My apologies to all my blogland friends for not doing any visiting lately. Some days I don’t even make it onto my computer!
And some days, like now, I just want to curl up with a book.
I hope everyone is keeping safe and well,
Stay happy 😊
