Starting the day
Just a quick post to catch up and see how many of my friends are still around,
We have all had breakfast and are ready to start the day, though the dogs have gone back into hibernation, Ruby especially would sleep the day away, Tango is still a bit more restless till he’s had his walk.
The weather this morning is much chillier and greyer. just heard on the radio that winter is about ready to pounce, so the sense of a cosy late summer will soon be shattered, The butterflies that are still flitting around, the daffodils that have dared to show their faces are in for a shock. A heads up for me as I have got several bulbs well on their way to blooming, I’ll get out the fleece and hope to save them, I’d hate to think that the work and time I put in to plant them will be for nothing, apart from the fact that the early bees and insects rely on them for food in spring.
Unfortunately I’ve had to put Tango on the lead more often as he is starting to wander off into the bushes and at some point a bit too close to the road path, a thing he would never have done in the past, I’d just say ‘path’ and he’d stay on there. It makes me sad to think that it could be the beginning of his decline, I must stop and don’t go there.
My Christmas wrapping is all but finished , just got a few little stocking fillers and small presents to get, Then they’ll be put away till Christmas, the cards are next, hopefully to-night.
To-morrow I have got my Great Grandson’s 3rd birthday party, a hall has been hired for it so I’ll pop along and it will remind me to appreciate the peace and quiet that old age [not me] brings.
Well I could go on as I feel I’m on a roll but I must get the dogs out and do some shopping, I have some baking to do when I get back home, i haven’t baked any bread for a while as I couldn’t eat the crusts till I had my tooth filled, having to buy the soft pappy stuff from the shop.
I’m also going to have a look for something different in the baking scene.
Bye for now
