Good morning, my friends. Another week has passed, ad my car has now achieved 5 weeks to that same gallon. I haven’t moved it now in about a week and a half – the poor thing, it must be pining for all the miles I did when going around Britain last year! However, we must continue to be patient and stay put – not that I am minding much! I’m just SO enjoying spending all this time at a much slower pace. A cousin said o me the other day that he had heard when this new normal is over we must each decide what our new normal wants to look like. Seems like a plan! The extra time has meant I have even been at my desk this week – yes! – the one on the landing. I have taken note of you all, and followed your examples! I have been making Christmas cards – nothing too extrav agant yet – simply a glorious picture, on a background, on a card base. The rest will come later
I have also finished work on the front porch. I decided that I didn’t want to clutter it up with coats and shoe racks – they must find somewhere else – so would leave it painted and put up pictures on the walls. So, I opened up my lovely looking tin of delicate green colour… only to find it unredeemable! It had most definitely gone off! So, matt white the walls remained.. and… hunting in the cupboards I found more of our own work to add to the robinAnd I have finished decorating the front porch. I decided I didn’t want to fill it up with shoe rack and coats – they must find somewhere else to clutter up! So… I looked around at the pieces of our own work which weren’t hanging anywhere…
The lovely long, light evbenings have been taken up with a jigsaw – which proved harder than it looked – and another bkanket – still stash busting!!
So, there you have it, my friends. Life here in North Wales. A friend from church rang me yesterday and said “When we all finally get together we will need to wear badges to remind ourselves who everyone is”. I think he may well be right..
Take care of yourselves. Stay safe. God bless you richly.
