Me On Monday - July 27th



A wave good morning to our hostess Sian at:http://fromhighinthesky.blogspot.ca/   and a hello, good morning to the other lovely bloggers.

The previous week in memory seemed busy; day timer may argue with my analysis / vacuuming out kitchen drawers – where do all these crumbs come from! / Thursday lunch with a family member, a quick catch up and exchange of her closet clear out; I should say no to her stuff but why can’t I?  I don’t need this stuff – put this on the list of issues to deal with / on Friday, air conditioner at work broke down causing patients and therapists to complain (a lot) about heat / buying a huge bag of peanuts for the chipmunks and blue jays, who both were complaining (a lot) about no food, now chipmunk wars begin over who gets to be first  / another really hot and humid weekend /  gardens wilting / tomato plants in pots take a bucket or two of water a day to keep happy / early Saturday morning touring  the village of Erin, part of Summer Manifesto, Explore Wellington County/  visited an excellent bakery for some fresh treats and sat outside at their tables / Mr Man amazed that in the heat I would still order a cup of hot tea / while in the village bought a new to me, pink dress for upcoming birthday party /on Saturday afternoon, absolutely no energy to do anything but read; Come Thou Tortoise by Jessica Grant, a Canadian author/ patio sitting under the new umbrella  / letting laundry pile up for the evenings ahead which are forecast to be cooler / Sunday morning our turn to water so all the flower beds got a drink / watering flower pots with water from dehumidifier / Mr Man trimmed some dead branches from one of the Ash trees / light eating of salads for dinner / F1 race watching; nice tribute to Jules Bianchi an F1 driver who passed away last week from injuries suffered in a race last October / dreading the clinic on Monday with no air conditioning and cranky therapist(s) / trying to organize scrap materials for later in the week scrap time / watching Last Tango in Halifax & Poldark (yummy) / pondering a line from a book; “when you look up at the stars, you are looking at the past”,  that thought makes me sad / making the to do list for the week ahead; the 31st, should it include a celebration  cake for the 2nd full moon of July – the famed blue moon?  It’s also Harry Potter’s birthday, BONUS! There will be cake.


Hoping everyone has a glorious week and if you get the chance to gaze at the Blue Moon on Friday, remember I will be thinking of you.  Now that's a happy thought.

  1. ..and a glorious week to you too!

    Yes, we watched the Grand Prix too and thought the tributes were lovely.

  2. I love the way you have written this! Such a lot of things you fitted in - makes me feel very lazy ... Hoping they have fixed the aircon so you don't have to put up with all those whining therapists!

    1. Hello and thank you for dropping by. I appreciate your kind comments. A/C at clinic not fixable, it will be 2 weeks at least for new one to be installed - oh the suffering ;)

  3. Seriously - you plan to celebrate Harry Potter's birthday? That is so sweet! If you could cut me a slice of cake, I'd be very much obliged - I'll be round Saturday afternoon for tea on the patio if that's OK!

    1. Oh yes I celebrate Harry and sometimes I do an early celebration for Neville's b-day which is the 30th. One year I made a snitch cake. Let's say 2pm for tea on Saturday, looking forward to it. :)

  4. You certainly had a busy week - not easy to cope in the heat without the A/C
