Good Morning


At last a bit of cooler weather. It looks a bit grey, but no rain, just comfortable. As I get older I no longer do such hot weather. In my younger days I was a sun worshipper, could not get enough: probably as compensation for growing up in London where you only saw the sun now and again peeping through the concrete buildings. Now it does not interest me so much, I am outside most of the time, on the porch and always have a window open somewhere. I like to have fresh air.

The hot weather has also kept me at home. I do not have the energy to go anywhere at the moment. Even my animals that I like to take photos of are hiding from the sun, although the chickens are always out and about.

but they are not as active as they were. Even laying eggs can make you tired.

It’s Monday again and another week begins, so what shall we do today. This morning we will go shopping, although our requirements are down to a minimum since there are only two of us. I did not realize that No. 1 son makes such a difference in food. I am now reprogramming our meals as we are not eating so much, but you cannot live on ham and eggs every day.  I do not really feel like cooking so much, although living from the micro wave is also not my idea of food fun.

Look what is still growing in my garden. My gardener pointed it out a month ago and said it was probably from bird seed. It is cannabis, hemp, for those that are not acquainted with it and really, honestly, it just arrived with no other intentions. There are the male and female types, but only the females are interesting to those that might like a smoke now and again. As a non smoker, that does not really interest me. Originally I thought it was a male plant, but in the last week it seems to have grown taller and stronger. When flowers or seeds appear, then it will be a female. It is only a smaller version, but does seem to be growing.

That seems to be the excitement of the day, and so we will prepare ourselves for the great shopping excursion, still debating what we are going to eat. In the meanwhile the sun has decided to arrive, but temperatures are still within reason. I hope your day will have a little more excitement than mine. The church bells are ringing in our village, but no idea why. Perhaps I missed something.

  1. It’s tough to do anything when the weather is hot. My mood gets affected by the weather a lot. I guess I understand your chickens staying in the shade and try to cool down. Your cannabis plant looks like a sativa which is an excellent kind to increase focus and reduce chronic pain.

  2. It was growing all over our garden when we first moved here. The small cottage was being sub let by the then tenant and the person living in it apparently used to throw his used reefers in the garden!
    I had no idea what it was at the time until one of my son’s mates pointed it out.

  3. I do understand your animals – as well as you – heat is not fun, shadow is the best place to be. here I am staying inside most of the time. Today 37.5 degrees C. I feel like doing absolutely nothing.
