For once, I am at a loss as to what to post about. This doesn't happen very often. I usually have plenty to say on my blog.
I won't bore you with more rabbit antics and there doesn't seem to be anything much going on in my garden to write about. No lovely flowers in bloom. My wind chimes are tightly tied up as it is quite cold and I don't often go outside unless I have to, so I might as well leave them tied up for the Winter.
However the photo of the roses taken in early summer, will help us along during the cold weather. We can imagine they are still in flower.
So I will just write about today and that happens to be a Sunday.
It started off with me getting up rather late so everything seemed to be a rush after that. It was eight o'clock before I awoke. That might sound early to some people but I usually like to get up at 7 am.
By the time I fed the rabbits and transferred them from their sleeping quarters to their run, I had breakfast, while attempting to do the easy Crossword from Harry's paper, made the bed and got ready for Church and the time was really slipping away.
There were no children in our house today.The granddaughters were here yesterday but today we have to ourselves.
In Church, I hate reading out or talking from the front. They know me well and do not expect me to do that, but during my battle with cancer, they have asked me to write about my feelings and experiences so that they can be read out. Today my third letter was read out to the congregation. Obviously I had agreed to do this beforehand, as I had a complete openness about my illness all along.
Probably, I can express myself better in writing. I have always been like that.
So anyway, that is what I did this morning. After meeting up with friends, we then came home.
I cooked a quick lunch. I don't do roasts these days. We had a quick stir-fry. I think I associate doing Sunday roast dinners with being chained to the cooker. In my mother's day, it would have been scandalous not to have cooked one. So as soon as I could, I shed that tradition.
The local radio jolted me into realising that Christmas is much nearer than I had anticipated. As we are near the end of November, I suppose it is common sense, but I have only just realised how unready I am going to be this year.
So I decided to start writing Christmas cards. I got out the list from last year and unfortunately had to strike off one or two names of people who have died. This always happens every year.
So that is what I have been doing this afternoon. I am still supposed to be doing the cards but decided my post needs to be changed. Now I have started doing this task, and the table is still full of cards and address books.
I did a pile of ironing in between.
I am seriously disorganised.
Later on, I watch Strictly Come Dancing, on BBC1 television. One of the live shows that I am hooked on.
So hope you haven't been too bored with my day. I never do seem to get bored myself.
I wonder what you did?
