Sunday Afternoon

Our usual Sunday Afternoon consists of a ride on our Harley Davidson.  Meeting up with chums from the The Dunedin Chapter Scotland and visiting my Dad.

This particular Sunday we are still in lockdown and restrictions still apply.  We are very that we are surrounded in the most beautiful countryside, our garden is larger than most.  And we can certainly exercise and get fresh air without bumping into anyone if we want.

For some time there has been an area near the front of the house that we would love to put some hard standing to cover the dirty area that gets mushy when folk park on it, despite all the chipped area around the house.  Steve brings round to work with some beautiful natural stone.  And begins to lay it.  Our Harley Davidson Fat Boy sits in front of the house looking lonely.  Our labs, Buddy and Bella stand together at the front of the door, waiting eagerly until I finally say they can come and join me while I put plants in the pots at the front of the house.

 

 

 

They are so happy once they join us out the front. Watching Steve cut the stone and lay it.  And me put some petunias, lobelia, pansies and a few other plants in pots.
The one thing that certainly hasn’t changed about the Sunday Afternoon is we spend time together.  Have a lovely day no matter what we do.  Just make the best of it.  Life is for living.  Live, laugh and love everyday.

And always make sure we make time for ourselves.  My time is writing.  Which I love love love.

Have a great day folks.

      It was a sunny day, deceiving though, a chilly 12 degrees. We have been here for 20 years, lots still to do, a big garden. The stone mason is my husband – Steve I feel very lucky to live here. How are you?

    Ooh that is chilly! Gardens always seem have work; this is probably so we can putter in them on nice days, even when the big projects are done for the time being. How lucky you and your garden are, to have a talented resident-stone-mason husband! I am ok, thank you for asking, though the social distancing can be a bit much (or maybe a bit not-enough?) at times. How are you and your family today?

      Yes I felt the chill even though the sun was shining. I would love to get out with my camera and take some landscape photographs. Yes I am very lucky to have such a talented husband. Pleased to hear you are ok. I am fine thank you. Had a bit of a day of it today. It was my treatment injection day, also my balloon burst inside my peg tube, thank good for a wonderful nurse that comes to my house. She was amazing. She made a comment today it should not be called social distancing it should be named physical distancing, since some of us are still social contacting each other. I’m going to write a blog post about this. Thank you for messaging me, it has cheered me up x
