Today is Monday 8th June

There is a yellow thing in the sky and I’m feeling warm and fuzzy all over! Hopefully this will be around for the majority of the day!

Our days are repetitive, we get up, dressed, have breakfast, walk the dog, then sit and lately bitch about the weather. Occasionally we are able to break our mundane routine with a shopping trip but other than that we don’t do much, and that was before lockdown!

The day has started as any other, a good night all round actually, and Maggie slept through until just before 6. We gave her a bottom shower yesterday and things are definitely better in that area. She has her final injection tomorrow and then another 7 days of antibiotics. I’ve walked her this morning and the business is soft, but OK.

Our ancient mariner rose has taken a hammering
but we do have a new bud which is promising
Meanwhile, the sprouts, swedes and carrots are doing well in the greenhouse

and in the junk patch, the spuds are going mad
There is also this …………………..
a magnificent lemon bush. Pinch a leaf, and the fragrance is intense.
I don’t believe I can use this in cooking, though could use it as an air freshener like potpourri.  Does anyone have any suggestions? It seems a shame to let it go to waste.

Dinner today is something with rice. That’s as far as I’ve got as Hubby had a reaction to (we think) the lasagna yesterday which upset his digestive system big time. The TV dinner is the only thing he had that I didn’t, and not on the normal menu of whatever I make.

Have a good day everyone. Take care and keep safe.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. So with you on the repetition. The days just blend in.

    • Apart from a sleep, it’s the same old, same old. It’s really starting to get to me now, and we’d coped pretty well. I think a lot of it is to do with frustrations at having to second guess what everyone else is going to do or behave. Makes me nervous in a crowd now.

  2. I think the pre made lasagna is acidic , hope he feels better. Not sure about the lemon plant. Maybe just bunches on the window sills for fragrance. Have a good day

    The lasagna could have been too acidic. In terms of the plant, I wonder if it could be used as an herb or to make tea. You’d have to check with a garden store of course to make sure it wouldn’t be poisonous, but using it like potpourri would be lovely.

    • Hi Fransi. I’ll look the shrub up as it was given to us by our neighbour when we moved in as we had nothing but a field out back! Iasked her and she said it couldn’t be used for cooking, just fragrance, so I’ll see how I treat it for a room freshener. Another learning curve in the ark!!

        I love the scent of lemon. I’m sure you will find some way to bring it into your house and enjoy it.

    Your garden is looking very good – and beautiful roses. 😀
    Washing half of Maggie reminds me of dear old SL – Incontinent old boy, I’d wash and disinfect his rear half every day! And oh the dog mat washing!! 😀
