Granny’s Thinking Thursday


Hello Everyone.
What a strange day.
If you look at the pic it looks like it will rain at any moment.
Funnily enough it didn’t feel like that.
It was fantastic down there.
And Jasmine and I were the only souls down there.
Not even a footprint on the sand.
No joggers.
No walkers.
Just us.
All that beauty and we didn’t have to share it.
Well, there were seagulls.
But…other than them…we were alone.

Half an hour later I left for work.
As I reached the mountain pass it started to rain.
By the time I got to the other side of the mountain it was coming down in buckets.
What a place to live.
It is never boring.

So…I survived an internal audit.
I got through the Canadian Audit.
Tomorrow is the financial audit.
I am all audited out.
Enough is enough.

So…what else can I tell you.
Damn…nothing comes to mind.
No words of wisdom.
No humour.
Oh Dear.

Oh well…a picture is worth a thousand words.
I have done my bit.

On the upside…tomorrow is Friday.
On the downside there are the auditors to face.
On the upside I feel very healthy.
On the downside the Receiver of my income is still hassling me.
On the upside there is still the dream of winning the lottery.
On the downside I need to forget the dreaming and DO something.
Oh wait…On the upside my Terry Pratchett book looks great.
Let’s leave while we are up.


  1. LOL You’re funny even when you think you’re not, Granny! Yes always leave on the “up” note, it’ll keep you staying positive! LOVE the pics!!

    • Thank you RD…I was funny? Where?

  2. Argh, I know that audited-out feeling all too well.

    Sorry, I haven’t forgotten about a possible contact; I got a message from my second hubby to say his friend from our local branch is on leave at the moment. She’s back in a week, and he’ll chase her up for us.

    • Thank you HP…I really appreciate the trouble.

  3. The top picture is totally stunning!

    • Hello Adee…are you talking about the first one? I loved that one!

  4. Love that first pic especially. So glad you’re feeling healthy, and enjoying your new book. That makes up for all the downs, doesn’t it? Good luck with the Lottery too. Hugs xx
