Like everyone, it’s been busy. Monday The Golfer and I ferried MyDearFIL to several appointments (he’s doing very well, thank you, it just often needs two of us to cope with him and car parks etc). Then Tuesday, yesterday, we had a “Scheduled Maintenance Power Outage”…………….All Day! Yep, 8.15am to 4.00pm. I know! Seriously? Three days before Christmas? On the very day I’d planned to do the food shopping?
It’s amazing how much one can’t do when the power is cut off. So much one just takes for granted. We turned the fridge up high for two hours before cut off time, I boiled the kettle and filled a thermos for hot drinks, I made lunches and put them and cold drinks in an esky with ice blocks, but of course there was no tv, no radio, no sewing machine, no computer, forgot to charge my phone! But the garden beckoned, and I read outside on the back deck under the shade of the tree (and admired my beautiful pots), and chatted to Ma Kettle, so it was quite restful and calm. Then, of course, when I was ready to do a post the Internet was down – Murphy’s Law at play!
This morning The Golfer and I were up very early and (finally) did all the food shopping then moved the last of the mulch and our garden, both front and back looks so good; I’m a very happy duck!
On the sewing front, I did a bit of machine stitching on the weekend
For this afternoon, I’m taking it easy and resting my aching back! Enjoy your day.
