Hurrah! It rained last night! It's very, very exciting. It rained for... hmmm, let me see.... 4.2 minutes I'd say. But - a raindrop IS a raindrop & each one counts. It has been so, so dry that anything is wonderful. The grass is so dry that it crunches when you walk on it & the leaves on the trees are wilted & drooping off their branches like a dog's tongue after a big run. This is a tree in our street and on the right is the cricket pitch in the park :o(
I have been very encouraged by responses to my new blog! Thanks for all your comments! I think a blog is going to be a great way for me to stay in touch with all my pals. There never seems to be any time these days to make phone calls or write emails. It's a terrible shame but this way, I hope my friends can log in & catch up on my news & drop me a comment any time that suits.
My cousin Stephen in NYC sent me something he had published in an on-line webzine. Here's the link. Check it out! http://www.epiphanyzine.com/
Oh dear, my partner Steve is at high risk of total neglect because he's just come to the study door with the shower bucket (where we collect the water as it heats up) & asked me to toss it in the garden. Well, I am so absorbed right here blogging away that I was like, "yeah, yeah. In a minute", while he stands there in his birthday suit waiting for the empty bucket. Oh, I'd better get my priorities right. Speaking of which, I actually have a job I have to go to today.
Cheerio readers! Have a lovely day!
