Today is Sunday 5th September

Hello and greetings from a sunny day on the East coast.
The weather has turned back again and it is glorious outside, so the washing is done and hanging out.
We cannot believe we have three clusters of new buds on the Ancient mariner of 5, 6 and 7, Maggie’s rose has another two, Peace has one bloom out and another two to come, and the final red one on the In Loving Memory bush is just going over. It has been a tremendous show from all of them this year.
   

I had a card from my aunt in the post yesterday and the charity it supported was the Alternative Animal Sanctuary which was about a mile up the road from where we lived in the cottage! I wonder if she was aware of that, and I shall mention it when I next write.

Being Sunday, sunny and the music Tribute Band festival going on, we anticipate town will be heaving, so are content to stay home and plod. We like ploddy days as before we retired we had very few and always seemed to be doing something for someone, or having to be somewhere.

Lunch is a cottage pie and hopefully will be enough to do two days. I don’t think I’m making bigger meals though, just that we don’t seem to want so much. This is obviously good for the diet, Hubby not overloading his tummy, and me managing to keep my weight in check. I’ve maintained this week so am well pleased with that.

Hope your day is off to an excellent start. Keep safe and take care 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.

    This was the year for roses! They are all still blooming here too! (though the roses around here are not so fancy or big as yours!) Today is the first football game (NOT soccer) and the males have cleared their schedules to be able to watch the game… so if that counts as ploddy, we’re in!

  2. Your flowers are lovely, Di. I’m glad you are having good weather.

  3. I’m curious, the east coast of what country?

  4. Better to stay home and plod, Di. And what better way to spend a beautiful day than in the garden. Your roses are beautiful. I can’t believe you know all their names. Mine are “pink” “red” and “orangish.”

    • The Ancient Mariner was a house warming gift, In Loving Memory was given to us by visiting boating friends the year my Mum died, the yellow Peace we bought to give us some colour, and the white Ice Berg rose is one we bought for Maggie as we could got obtain a Maggie rose here in the UK. It turns out that this is also one of Sue Vincent’s favourite roses, so when it bloomed in its first year, it was doubly special.
