Went for a walk with the dog this afternoon and caught the tail end of a shower. The temperature is still pretty high for this time of year (17.5C) The acorns have started swelling on the oak trees and in some places the heather is turning brown. I guess that means that summer has come to an end. As you can see from the photo it is a particularly brooding sort of day.
We are spoilt for beautiful places around us – lots of good walks and picnic spots. I used to like climbing hills and even the odd mountain, but that is much more of a challenge nowadays. It is amazing how quickly the days go by. Today has been the odd bit of computing, a bit of housework, a potter and tidy up of magazines and papers, lunch (soup) and a snooze, then a walk, followed by coffee from a flask and some time idly gazing at the river (in good company of course)…….. and will now include more computing, a bit of a read and maybe some TV after a good meal. I have worked out that wall to wall NCIS recordings in the evenings make for a restless sleep; the answer is very simple – finish with an episode of the Waltons on DVD.
I suppose you could say it is a nothing kind of day. Amazing how enjoyable the weekends are in retirement.
