...random jottings on what may be happening in my life at any particular time, not necessarily anything earth shattering, just ordinary every day stuff; and photographs, mainly taken by me, my GKB and other family members as we travel through this journey called life...
I enjoyed taking part in The Simple Woman's Daybook community way back in June so thought I would indulge myself again this month. Back then I said I was going to make myself a hot ginger drink - someone asked me how I made it and I have given the method at the link above.
For today July 6th 2015 Outside my window - the sun is shining and there is a warm breeze. This a nice change as we have been experiencing gale force winds in the last day or so. The street is quiet with just two kids wandering up the footpath with a skateboard and a backpack. It's the school holidays - another week and they will be back to school until the Christmas break.
I am thinking - I should really be doing my daily reading or sewing up that knitting I've finished.
I am listening to - easy listening radio. This is what I like, music from the 50's, 60's and 70's is playing at the moment. I am thankful for - good health, I can still hear, see and get around, so what more could I ask for?
I am wearing - red and white tee shirt, navy 3/4 pants and bare feet.
I am creating - I have just finished knitting a snood for my daughter. I still need to sew it up and I have been putting that off, I find it a chore. It hasn't turned out the same as in the pattern but it is still okay, she's happy with it and that is the main thing.
I am going - outfor lunch with three other ladies, looking forward to it.
I am wondering - how I am going to sleep in this heat. I anticipate a lot of tossing and turning or sitting up reading when I should be sleeping. Maybe we'll turn the fan on in the bedroom, we don't have air conditioning through there.
I am reading - I have just finished reading 'My Sister Clare'bySara Hylton. I have just discovered this writer and have read two of her books and found them very enjoyable.
I am hoping - this wind doesn't get any stronger, it is no longer a breeze!
In my kitchen - my good kiwi bloke has just made us a coffee so I will take a break and join him.
In my garden - the spring flowers are getting a beating from the wind. I've started tidying up and weeding but am pleased that some of the plants are starting to bush out and hide the weeds, phew.
A peek into one of my days - today, lunch with the girls, two trips to the supermarket, once for a sick friend and once with Mum to do my own shopping and hers. Too hot to cook tea so tonight will be fresh bread rolls with salad fillings :) My GKB is easy to please.
One of my favourite things - on a hot day like this has turned out to be (28 C.) I love a bowl of fresh fruit salad and ice cream, any flavour will do.
