Is that a sofa in the field?
sunny now, but started out overcast and cold! temps 19
Beautiful day now, though still on the cool side. As you see, our lupines are going mad! I realize I'd misspelled lupines as lupins. But a very lovely man named John wrote with his lupine story - and didn't mention my spelling error - but I did notice an 'extra' e
in his message.
One of us had made an error and I could guess who.
Turned into a busy day. Breakfast in cowansville - always a great start. Then met an acquaintance named Maurice for coffee in knowlton to talk about his book. Then met another acquaintance on the street and she told me about her book, and wanted me to read it. Then returned to find out an acquaintance in Montreal had called, wanting advice and...for me to read his book.
Maurice, bless him, didn't ask. He only wanted advice.
Unfortunately I'm finding myself having to decline all invitations to read books. I wish I could, but I just don't have the time or energy left. did some mailing in Richford...then got home to a bunch of paper-work. Contracts, info people needed, people who needed to set up meetings. All good stuff, but it became a little hard to breathe. On top of that, wayne was cutting the grass and the electrician came by.
I'm sure you have days like that. I just have to get by myself for even thirty second - normally the washroom - and take a few deep breaths. And remember that all this has to get done, it might as well be with a smile on my face.
So now, almost 6 - have fed and walked Trudy - nice quiet time around the pond - the sun is finally out....and a steak is about to go on the barbeque...well, in an hour or so.
Pat and Tony are bringing their new dog, Daisy, over for us to babysit tomorrow while they pick up a relative. Daisy is gorgeous. One year old and very bouncy. Apparently she likes to eat sofas. Will report back to you on that one! Now, Buttercup Penny can not only eat a sofa, she can poop one too - so we'll see how Daisy does.
And on that note, I'll leave you! Be well.
