It’s another beautiful day here and looks like being a scorcher. We’ll take Maggie out for her first walk shortly, then for the majority of the day it will be the back garden as the pavements are likely to be too hot for her feet.
I had a relatively good night, having walked Maggie at 10pm, retiring to bed as soon as we got back and turning my light off just before midnight. I woke up at 1.20 but only fleetingly. Maggie had a good night too, and a lot of it could have been because I had the fan running all night to keep the room cool. I’ve woken up feeling less tired though and ready to face another hot day.
The gel seems to be working on the inflammation on my leg, and we ordered our monthly meds today. Whilst in my records, we checked the results of my blood test last week, and everything is fine, so no DVT.
We were chatting to one of our dog walking friends the other day and the subject of sheds came up. Apparently there is a firm locally whose prices seem reasonable for what we want so we’re going to have a look today.
There is also a local craft shop that is open three days a week, so I’m going to have a look in there for some card making materials. I have plenty of blank cards, it’s just things to put on them that I’m running low on. I tried one of the major craft chains on-line and once I got used to bouncing around their web site, there wasn’t that much of interest to me other than things like Happy Birthday stickers, numbers or letters, certainly not the decoupage compositions I like. Another has everything I like but are ‘in store only’ purchases. A bit difficult when the nearest is 35 miles away and likely to be shut anyway. Still, if our routine dental check up in August isn’t cancelled, we can have a detour!!
Still haven’t decided what to do with our quintet of homegrown potatoes today. Might nip into the supermarket here (if no queue) on the way back from the shed place and seek inspiration from the freezer section/oracle.
