Monday 1st February 2010..
Outside my window...watching the birds at our three feeders. Husband thinks they have been using Twitter to tell each other about the new RSPB approved food. Very busy at the feeders, we will need to refill very soon.
I am thinking...about the friend whose funeral I attended three hours ago, she was younger than me, her illness (Cancer) had been disagnosed just 6 months ago. Interesting meeting other people I knew who knew her but we wouldn't have known that Clare was a link between us. Learnt a lot about her, feel so sorry for her daughter, no Mother, and same age as my daughter.
I am thankful for...being here, in spite of asthma, heavy cold, bronchiectasis.
From the kitchen...the views of our garden, a few green vegetables still to be harvested but most of all the birds around the feeders.
I am wearing...a long grey wool skirt, charcoal grey polo neck jumper and matching cardigan.
I am creating...a cross stitch kneeler. Finding it quite difficult to ensure pattern matches on all four sides.
I am going to a talk at Local history society this evening
I am reading "Woman's Hour: celebrating 60 years of women's lives".
Around the house husband has painted walls to keep the high standard of decoration. All walls are magnolia but some walls become grubbier than others over time ...
One of my favourite things is when husband & I are working together in our study, not talking but still together whilst we pursue our own interests
Plans for the week include reading book, "The god of small things" for reading group. Have 27 days to do so
