Forty days has such a biblical feel about it doesn’t it. A milestone? a millstone? maybe both or neither. Either way, just another day.
Allotment/garden – I got a few things planted out (climbing French beans, lettuces, some flower plants), and kept a few back in reserve, in case the weather takes a turn for the worse (or the slugs and snails come out to feast…). After the rain this week, the soil is beautifully friable and crumbly – perfect for weeding and planting. More of that over the weekend I hope
Exercise/stay fit – a good walk, and some yoga. My leg is the better for having walked a lot more this week. I’ve been exploring local places I don’t already know. Today it was a cemetery I’ve walked past a hundred times and more but never been in. My loss! Such a peaceful spot, and 6 old copper beech trees that are a landmark from all the hills around. I will go back I’m sure.
Craft/making – today I sorted through all my fabric stash, and was delighted by what I found. Treasures from years ago and more recent too. I found a wire and hooks I knew I had and have been searching for, and I used them. A bit of a fiddle, but I managed in the end, and am pleased with the result (they hold my plot number in place in the allotment shed window). I bought the tiles in Delft. I love the effect.
House/home repairs, improvements – no
Admin – not today, again.
Kind deeds/something for others – remembering special dates feels even more important than usual. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings (cancelled) – all are important. And sometimes just remembering people who are important to us, not because of a special day but because they are who they are. We’ve been using the Post Office and post box rather more than usual (and it helps that the walk there and back is long and pleasant – win/win).
Stay sane! – walking, gardening (always), front gardens, yoga, laughing. All these and more.
