What a peaceful Sunday.
Barring a couple of chores I have done very little.
I read the Sunday papers.
And wished I hadn’t.
I won R200 on the lottery.
Well, it is a start.
I sat on a chair in the sun.
Soaking is up like a Dassie.
And getting some natural vitamin D.
The sun made me sleepy so I had a nap.
More like a full on sleep.
Oh and I read a little of my book.
While I was sitting at my computer a family walked past my window.
But I think they were looking for the show house, three houses up from us.
I didn’t see any other cars so there must be an agent who is bored stiff.
And, we continue to live in a bit of a ghost town.
Which worries Mex but not me.
Actually, if we hear a car or voices we peer through the window.
This is not cool because we don’t have net curtains.
We will get the reputation of being that nosey old couple.
I took Jasmine for a walk just now.
And took a snap of this flower.
There are loads of them in the veld.
I wonder if I should dig up a couple of plants and put them in front of our house?
They, obviously, like the area.
And, being succulents, they won’t need too much care.
I had just taken the shot when Jasmine peered into a clump of them and froze.
So I froze too.
She froze from curiosity.
Me from fear.
I could picture two beady eyes watching me.
Two beady eyes and a darting tongue.
We headed home.
On the downside Mary-Lou has yet ANOTHER infection.
And is in isolation.
Back on a ventilator and being fed on a drip.
I am worried sick about her.
Ah…some folk have just walked into the house next door.
I DO have net curtains in this room.
I can peer.
