Today is Saturday 6th March : aka JAB DAY!

I am due to have my first vaccination in less than an hour, and will be glad of it. Hubby had his two weeks ago, so I hope everything goes as smoothly for me as it did him.

We had a long walk this morning, going through the park, up along the prom, then down the back roads, and through the park again to home. We saw few people which was nice as we didn’t have to avoid everyone, but as we were coming out of the park, we met up with 7 of our dog walking friends, all going in different directions being in various stages of their walks! We couldn’t stop for fuss because I didn’t want to have to rush for my appointment, but we passed the time of day in passing andΒ  managed to distance safely. We got home just before 11am. Kettle immediately on for a very welcome cup of tea, my third of the day.

We’d noticed a tired bee on the path in the park and so did our bit to help it. People in the past have laughed at me as I prod what they can’t see on the ground with a flower, talking apparently to myself. I think it’s captured in this post.Β  Anyway, we got Mr Bee on a flower and carried him to a bush. On our way back, he was still there, but looked more active, so hopefully he was reviving nicely with the flower and warmer temperature.

Not much else on the agenda today actually. It’s warm and dry but overcast, though we could just make out the new turbines on the horizon of the next phase of the off shore wind farms here. The above picture was taken in November 2017. We’ve counted over 200 on a clear day, and I sometimes find myself thinking of being the centre of a birthday cake surrounded by candles!

These are inland and about four miles away. Lincolnshire is flat, so I guess conditions are ideal. There are 16 here, and most times at least one isn’t working!

Hope your day has started on a positive note. Take care and keep safe everyone.

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.

    Well done with the bee we always try to do the same. We had a bumble bee in the back garden in the same state, sadly he died. I hope you have had your jab safely, and I hope it went as well and smoothly as our and your hubby’s did.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ¦‹πŸ€ž

    I really hope your vaccination goes as smoothly as mine went. I had my second one last Thursday and it went so well that for a bit I thought it hadn’t been done correctly.

  4. Good to read this. Yesterday, I had a lovely day but I was tired and had a difficult night. I just read after I got home. Very please to learn you have decided to get another dog. I would advise looking at clicker training there are online groups. Be careful about what people tell you as we found out looking for a cat, they are not always truthful. I agree that you need to see the Mother of the dog/cat in home conditions. Good Luck in your search. Glad the jab went okay. Have a pleasant day and be safe.
