In the time of the virus: day 93

A good mix of a day.  An early morning start to do one of our favourite woodland walks – it was delicious being able to set off before it got too hot.  Home in time for lunch (German style – Lidl sliced rye bread, which is delicious, made into open sandwiches), and before the weather became imp.  Then a quiet afternoon sitting in the garden Getting Things Done.  (A quick aside: how I do love hearing the sound of the local children playing out while I’m in the garden.  Sadly it’s not something we hear that much of in normal times).

Things I got done:

  • figured out what’s needed to fill out a legal form, which I offered to do for a friend
  • did some more farm admin
  • did a few admin tasks for us
  • watered the allotment and garden
  • started some bread – the plan is to bake some french sticks tomorrow as well as the usual loaves, so Malcolm can make bruschette for supper one night (using the Isle of Wight tomatoes)
  • wrote a few emails, long overdue
  • make some pesto – first time ever using my own basil plants
  • started a tentative plan for an actual (real life) trip next year

Things I didn’t get done:

  • ring a friend while her granddaughter was sleeping, for a nice chat
  • make a few more face coverings for a neighbour
  • the rest of the emails, long overdue
  • pick ripe produce (fruit, vegetables, salad leaves) and prepare it for storage
  • make some pesto – first time ever using my own basil plants
  • order a new fitbit strap – the two duct tape mends aren’t going to last much longer, and the strap is beyond a proper mend

Never mind, those things will still be there waiting for me another day.

Tomorrow’s going to be even more gert hot than today.  We’ve got another epic walk planned that requires an early start if we’re not to get fried.  And getting fried is definitely not in the plan.

Hope you’re keeping your cool despite all.  See you tomorrow xx
