It feels like I’ve been away from home for forever and a day. In reality, it was only a day and a half…! I went out to the House yesterday morning. It was a warm and sunny day, and a good chance of a fine morning today too. The warm weather eases my shoulder pain, and I was in the mood to “get things done”. So I decided to stay the night for once. This might not seem like a big deal to most of you, but then you should know that it’s been years since I spent even one night away from home. The beds in the House don’t agree with my back. They still don’t! It also did feel rather strange staying there over night all on my own in the big house… Even if being alone did give me the freedom to play Goldilocks and try out all the beds! There are only two alternatives though so it did not help much. I did not get much sleep, and I doubt I’ll repeat the experiment any time soon. (Not really sorry I tried it though – I think I’ll recover.)
From weather point of view it was a very nice evening. (Would have been even nicer if a neighbour hadn’t decided to spend it on his lawn-mower!). It was also a fine morning; except that I didn’t get up quite as early as I had had in mind, because I didn’t fall asleep until about that time!
This 1½ day I did not spend so much time upstairs in dad’s study, because I could take better advantage of the fine weather by doing things downstairs. Gave the house a good airing by having both doors open. Sorted through the contents of some cupboards and closets and drawers, did some laundry and cleaning etc.
Good drying weather!
At the end of the day I went down to the lake for a while.
There were still plenty of people on the beach at 6.30-7 pm!
This time even I got at least my feet wet!
