Rise And Shine.

Hey,

.

What an amazing start to a new week.

We all awoke to hazy blue skies and sunshine, like a faded photo of a hot summer’s day.

.

The forecast says that the temperature will be very high this week , the highest for about the last 25 years or so.

Now, won’t that be nice.

.

Of course, not so wonderful for those of you who have to go to work as usual, but at least the going and coming is far more pleasant, and there are also the evenings.

I am hoping that for once the experts have got it right and there will be a few more days in the garden and a couple more days at the beach before we glumly submit to the long embrace of winter.

.

I have already started wondering about Christmas presents, in the hope of avoiding the worry and the annoyance of leaving such things until the last minute, only to find out that stocks have run out and then the stress really kicks in with a vengeance.

Doing it now also allows me to have time to return things to the shop if I later decide that I got carried away and bought the wrong thing for someone.

It is a problem for me because I do not always remember that just because I think that something is wonderful does not mean that it will actually be right for the intended recipient.

I mean, I know it is the thought that counts , but it is nice to also find out you have also made the right choice to please a person that you care about.

.

Anyway, I seem to have got miles off the track there because it is still just a sunny Monday in late September.

.

There are a few things that must be done today but apart from that ….and cutting our dandelion infested lawn at some point this week….I am happy to say that the world is definitely my lobster.

.

That reminds me of something.

At the weekend I popped into the garden and saw a pigeon sitting disconsolately on one of the lower branches of a tree, with it’s head sunk down into it’s body.

.

I did not go too closely, because I did not want to frighten the poor creature and force it to try and fly away, so I just had a look at it.

One dull eye opened as it kept a watch, but no otherwise there was no movement at all.

.

Big H and I thought that the best thing to do was to put some water and bread at the base of the tree and leave it in peace, as the garden is very quiet and safe.

I kept an eye on the bird and waited until Big H fetched the refreshments, which I carefully and slowly placed beside the tree.

.

Hopefully the bird is OK now.

We shall go and look very soon.

.

So, hoping that you have a cracking day yourself!

J,x.
