The day has dawned chilly and blowy, so the heating is back on. This is ridiculous as it’s June and we should be enjoying more sunny days that what we’re getting!
It would appear we are in for a stormy day as the wind hit gusts of 70mph in the early hours and is currently a steady (and not really welcome) 30 mph.
I’ve walked the dog, which was brisk in more ways than one, and everything in that department is good now. I didn’t see a single soul, unlike yesterday when our not-doing social distancing neighbour joined me en route. I told him that I had to keep Maggie away from his dog, a woolly rough collie lassie dog of eight, as she had an infection, and that was enough to keep him on his side of the road. Today though it was just me, Maggie, the wind and all that sniffable grass, but we were still home within 20 minutes.
Dinner today is chili, so I’ve taken the tomatoes out of the fridge so that they can acclimatize to room temperature which brings out the flavour. No doubt there is no scientific data to back that up, but I discovered that serving or using them straight from the fridge seemed to diminish the taste.
The saga with my phone isn’t resolved, though Hubby managed to divert whatever it was being downloaded into a security file which we can’t access because I don’t know the pin number to unlock it, but at least it’s out of the way. I’m still annoyed and maybe when places are open we can go into one of these ‘expert’ shops and get it deleted. I’ve got a note of all the important numbers though in case I lose the lot as they ‘tinker’.
On with the day and I have no idea what we’re doing. No appointments, no plans, and in all honesty, not much inclination to do anything anyway. I’ve started a shopping list for our next ‘big shop’ but that won’t be until next week at the earliest. We did a little bit of ‘I fancy’ shopping last night on the way back from collecting Hubby’s prescription for a finger infection, and he said it was really depressing as the shelves were practically bare.
