Today is Wednesday 10th March

It’s wet outside and has been raining all night, so the good news is that the plants will be well bedded in after our work in the garden yesterday.

We’ve been out for a walk too, not exactly getting drenched, but we did come back a little damp and were glad of our yellows. We saw no-one until the last 100 yards or so when a neighbour was putting his bin away, though we had seen the refuse collectors in the road and acknowledged them.

We have a funeral in the road today. One of our dog walking friends lost her husband suddenly a few weeks ago with a massive heart attack having just walked their dog. With attendance numbers limited because of Covid, friends and neighbours intend to pay their last respects from pavements and drives outside their homes. We shall also be doing so.

We don’t have much on our agenda today. Tomorrow though will be busier as Hubby has an INR and we have a guy coming to measure up for a bathroom window. With patterned glass, I don’t know if they would be able to match it, so the chances are we will go for both sections to be replaced and then that is every window pane changed in the house. I have a budget in mind and hope it is not too far out.

Lunch today is sorted with day two of our stew, and there should be plenty for tomorrow as well. Hubby has done really well recently with scrambled eggs and yesterday a jacket potato introduced into his diet. He has reached the target weight we set and our aim now is to maintain it.

Hope your day has got off to a good start. Take care and keep safe everyone.

 

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.

    The day started well like yours ,wet and chilly though. We were alerted at the weekend that our electricity would be off today between 10am and 4pm ….eeek long day, no heat, no cooking,no broadband! I filled too big flasks with boiling water so we can have a hot drink! We just had a lovely piece of apple and raisin cake that hubby made yesterday 💜💜

    We are supposed to have warm (66 degrees F) and gusting winds (20 – 22 mph). So far it is warm enough for just a sweater but the wind is fierce! Replacing windows is an expensive undertaking! I hope the cost is under budget. This last month has been awful with so many deaths… We have lost at least a dozen from church. It doesn’t make it any easier when they were all in their late 80s – 90s, and one that managed to escape COVID at 102 yrs of age.

    • Our frames are good, so it is only the panes that need to be replaced. We’ve had all the others done and the cost has been around £70 a pane. Because this is patterned glass, I anticipate about £100.
      I know what you mean about the deaths. We’ve had it here, people in their 70s and 80s, not Covid related , but so many in close proximity to us.

    great hubby reached his target weight! Way to go! ❤

    • After losing two stone since his op, we had to get things back on track for him which has been difficult seeing as he can’t eat anything really solid yet.
