In the time of the virus: mark 2 day 2

Today I have been:

Feeling: well (not to be taken for granted), busy (lots to do today), happy that the sun is shining again, nervous (about that election, and what comes next), impatient (and trying not to be), glad we managed to see the toddler (and her mum) again before lockdown

Enjoying: that sunshine, morning fika (those cinnamon buns, with good coffee), getting things done, unexpectedly meeting a friend in the park and catching up on news

Reflecting: that patience is essential; so is adaptability

Making: yoghurt (for my breakfasts, to make the fresh milk keep longer), leaf mold to use as garden mulch in a couple of years (one big sack gathered, many more to go), a scarf for someone I know will like it (Christmas present)

Cleaning: routine stuff – wash basins, kitchen

Gardening: finished filling that green bin ready for collection, front garden tidy, gathered up fallen leaves including from the pavement in front of the house

Writing: this post (go me!), more emails, a birthday card for someone’s special day

Exercising: green gym (aka gardening), the same local walk as yesterday

Buying: more milk and cheese at the dairy farm; maybe – some yarn and a fleece from Denmark (we’ll see)

Swapping: that long walk for a local one (again); knitting scarf for another – given up for now on the scrap one that I can’t seem to get right. Both their turns will come.

Having: my flu jab (twice postponed due to illness then self-isolation)

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!
