In the time of the virus: day 69

Another scorching hot day, so off out to the allotment straight after breakfast, for some more much-needed weeding before it becomes too hot to be out there.

Then back indoors in time for our Sunday ‘trip’ – this week we were off to Padua, a city we’ve visited several times and love very much.  Good memories mostly of simply living in the place – food shopping in the local shops and markets; exploring the streets on foot, home to cook very simple meals; lots of time lazing on a shady balcony watching the people go by, reading and knitting (that was in the days before I came across crochet); adopting favourite cafes for morning, late afternoon and evening (and favourite ice cream haunts).  Those were the days – will they ever return IRL I wonder?

This was today, provided by Malcolm (he made the cheese straws and mixed the drinks)….

….and this was the inspiration


I hope you’re well.  I know that some of you are dealing with some very tough stuff right now.  You have my love and thoughts and good wishes, and I hope to see you again tomorrow xx

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!
