A student's life...
So, the exams are finished, what is one to do?
Well, the day went something like this:
◊ Got up, fed the doves and magpies, retrieved the newspaper.
◊ Coffee and newspapers in bed. Didn't finish either the Sudoku or the Crossword.
◊ Checked the email, sent off a birthday greeting to a friend.
◊ Showered & breakfasted.
◊ Paid some bills.
◊ Bucketed the shower water around parts of the garden.
◊ Fixed an electric outlet that has been loose for four years. Took 2 minutes to fix.
◊ Found a tin of paint the right colour and touched up some marks on the family room wall.
◊ Chatted for a while with a Dutch neighbour called Bill.
◊ Built a 'brewing box' - somewhere to keep a home brew warm while it is fermenting.
◊ Lunch. Bits and pieces from the left-over pile.
◊ Started a home brew fermenting in the brewing box.
◊ Sat in the gazebo and read for a while.
◊ Picked and ate some mulberries from the tree beside the gazebo. Took a bowlful in to Margaret.
◊ Sent off a few emails to friends.
◊ Mowed the lawn.
◊ Mulched some of the vegetable garden.
◊ Sorted out some of my photo archive - family photos & ones used for blog illustration.
◊ Sat in the gazebo with Margaret to exchange various stories about our respective days.
◊ Watched the little finches (Silver-eyes) flitting around the garden.
◊ Put some chips in the oven, made some garlic-yoghurt dip, poured some red wine.
◊ Watched the news, eating chips, dip and wine.
Still to come:
◊ A half hour walk.
◊ A much needed trip through a large number of neglected friend's blogs to comment on what others have been doing.
Tough, n'est pas?
