It was a horribly hot night last night, and took ages for me to fall asleep. When I did, it was with some ideas for cards on my mind so I hope to experiment with those today.
I’ve been awake since 5.30 and up since 7.45. It is going to be another stuffy and oppressive day as even the sun is taking shade behind the clouds, though makes its presence known occasionally.
We stripped the bed and the washing is out on the line.
Hubby is taking things easy having hurt his toe yesterday, almost ripping the nail off.
I’m squeamish about feet and eyeballs, so let’s just say I can’t dress it for him, but the wound is clean and he is now wearing a pair of flip flops purchased this morning round the house.
I went up the road before 9am to get fruit for my smoothies (as well as above mentioned flip flops), and town was already beginning to get busy. The cafes had all opened early and there were a lot of people eating outside. I stopped to chat with an elderly resident in the next road who lost his wife last year. He has not been well himself and recently had surgery. He’s lost a lot of weight, but is making progress and has an MRI scan on Monday at a specialist hospital. He’s in his 80s, and has a yorkie cross called Rex. Rex was Maggie’s boyfriend, and she would always look for him when we passed their gate. He never barked at her once, but did so at every other dog that went by. It was quite sweet to see them rub noses through the gate.
