I am enjoying
A not-coffee break. I have given up coffee, chocolate and alcohol to try and reduce my migraine- triggers. I sometimes wonder if life is worth living.
I am drinking
A giant midnight blue mugful of ginseng, gingko and lemon-grass tea. It is meant to give me get up and go.
(I have only just sat down but never mind.).
I am eating
Nothing as I had a proper Sunday morning breakfast - a fry-up of eggs, bacon and tomatoes at 11.30 am!
I am wearing
Gardening jeans and a purple top. Purple is a special colour don’t you know?
I am looking out the window at
Sheep and lambs, the river and new mown grass (cannot call our grass a lawn by any stretch of the imagination).
Who is by my side?
Only Molly the cat who is sound asleep in her basket. The dogs are outside sunning themselves.
I have been
Weeding which is my perpetual pastime at this time of year. I never use chemicals so it is hard work. Satisfying when it is done though.
(Why are my eyes so often drawn to only the weeds and not to the blossom in the garden?).
After this I am going to
Go out in the garden with my wee camera and take some pictures of
I would rather be
Writing or just lounging.
I am thinking about
The Duchess, the DVD I watched last night. I recommend it highly if you haven’t seen it. I thought it was a beautiful production and couldn’t help thinking of the life of Princess Diana throughout the film which tells the story of the life of a Duchess of Devonshire. I shall say no more, I don’t want to spoil it for you.
My sister C who lives in Sussex has been on my mind also our mother and other relatives who have passed into Spirit.
I am also thinking of fresh air and how I love it so. The pure Welsh mountain air is like wine.
I am looking forward to
Sitting in the weed-free garden with a Good Book but I don’t think that will ever happen do you?
Win the lottery so a friend and I can open a Dog and Donkey sanctuary. No luck this week.
None as I am ‘not stopping’. I can hear the sounds of snooker in the room below as M is watching it on TV. I actually watched some myself last night and learned how it works, hope I don't get hooked!
Well I must go as the urge to get up and go has come upon me, the herbal tea must have worked its magic. I am off on a blossom hunt; watch this space for pics!
Bye for now,
