In the time of the virus: day 28

It’s Sunday, which these days can only mean one thing: a [virtual] trip ‘out’ for coffee and a treat.

Today’s event was a visit to Denmark – so many very happy memories relived, so many beautiful places visited.  Most alongside two of our oldest and dearest friends.  As we sat and enjoyed our coffee, bathed in spring sunshine and eating fresh-baked cinnamon buns (thanks Malcolm!  delicious and very evocative of other times and other places), we watched a series of Malcolm’s photos and videos of many of the places we’ve been and listened to appropriate soundtracks he’d recorded on various visits.  This must be right at the top of the list of places we want to go again once travel is again possible (especially as we miss our friends there right now).

This was a day dedicated to pleasant enjoyment.  It’s the weekend, people!  A few phone calls to catch up with friends and family.   A walk.  Some crochet and knitting (of course).  Some plans made for this coming week.  A little gentle gardening (only watering the greenhouse plants).  Yoga.

Sometimes the crochet and the table just happen to blend. Or maybe the choice of cloth and colours for the crochet just reflect the same mood (or need)

And rather to my surprise, I gave my room a good tidy and clean today (apparently the ‘no jobs’ rule is one you can break if you want to.  Or maybe it doesn’t count as a job if you really want to do it).  Look – no piles of stuff any more!  Everything either dealt with or tidied away (or both).  I do have a few more admin jobs to catch up with, but it does at last feel do-able and under control.

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!
