In the time of the virus: day 20

A very short post today, because I’ve been too sleepy to write much.  Three consecutive nights of not enough sleep.  No reason, not worrying about stuff (even though heaven knows there’s enough to worry about!).  Just awake from 3am onwards.

But today was a good day for all that.  A beautiful walk, continuing the theme of exploring areas of Bath I don’t often visit.  Some good phone and email conversations catching up with friends and family.  Plenty of time sitting out in the garden knitting, listening to podcasts, and pottering around.  And to cap it all, while I was watering plants on the allotment, I noticed that several of my asparagus plants have begun to put up spears.

The asparagus is the subject of a long-running tease between me and Malcolm – my assertion every year that next year the crop will really be good (instead of the sparse and spindly reality).  But I think that may finally be laid to rest: this may be the year.

Mini orchard planted by our council (in the same park)

I didn’t know that. Haile Selasse lived in Bath for several years leading up to and during WW2. Apparently he opened the Moorfields Council Estate (a place I love) in 1954

I hope this finds you well.

See you tomorrow.

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
