Today is Monday 22nd November

My American readers will be aware that today is the 58th anniversary of the JFK assassination. Whilst I can remember what I was doing on August 16th 1977 when Elvis Presley died, I was just 7 years old in 1963 and at school.

Our day has been a mixed bag on the weather front following a night of heavy rain. This morning was at least dry, and we had a field trip to replace the throwovers for our settees as the ones we purchased a little while ago were too small to cover them completely and too big to tuck in. 
I also did some fruit shopping and sad as it is to convert to old money as I sometimes still do, paid over 13 shillings (66p) for a solitary apple and nearly 14 bob (69p) for a single pear. Two bananas set us back 22p, I got some raspberries reduced to 62p, some red seedless grapes which are part of a price war with one of the discount supermarkets for £1.06, and a honeydew melon cost us 95p.
Coming home, rainbows seemed to be everywhere so I’m not sure if we were chasing them or they were following us!
Photo Dec 2019 on the beach road we came home on today.

We had showers alternating with sunshine and we’d been home about half an hour when the skies opened.

Lunch today was a spaghetti bolognese and I have enough for tomorrow which will either be with a baked potato or I’ll do some mash and have a cottage pie with side veg.

Have a good day everyone and keep safe.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    It’s been a good day so far here too but so cold, no rain , last night or today. Hubby walked Ruby this morning while I did the house work. Then I did the ironing while he did all the Christmas cards! I had an appointment with the nurse blood pressure, bloods, weight ect and all looked good. I have walked Ruby twice and she seems okay fingers crossed.
    I do agree with you fruit and vegetables are very expensive, even worse when you convert to old money! …why do the things that are good for you cost so much when trash is much cheaper? 💜

    I’ve noticed the price on produce has been fluctuating wildly! I got bananas at 49cents/pound last week and this week they are at 69cents/pound. So no bananas! But the pomegranates are on sale still. Three weeks ago we had apples for 50cents/pound and now they are $7.99 for a 3 pound bag!
