Linking in with our hostess, Sian & sending a big wave to all the Monday Memo writers connecting at From High In The Sky
New from the patio? Well it really has been too hot to move away from the cool of inside of the house to even the patio. (gratitude for air conditioning). Further water restrictions, fire bans, drought conditions, all official notifications we have received this week.
As of Sunday evening, I am half way through book 5, The Order of The Phoenix of the Harry Potter re-read. On Saturday, while finishing book 4, The Goblet of Fire, I had quite a laugh out loud moment; "An excellent point, said Professor Dumbledore. My own brother, Aberforth was prosecuted for practising inappropriate charms on a goat. It was all over the papers, but did Aberforth hide? No, he did not! He held his head high & went about his business as usual. Of course, I'm not entirely sure he can read, so that may not have been bravery."
We did buy a new paper shredder, one that cross cuts. Both Mr Man & I do a lot of work from home & it is imperative that some documents are destroyed correctly. This new shredder is so quiet, which makes a change from the old one.
I have a new rant. It seems the latest catch phrase is when you tell someone you love them, the reply is now, love you more. Really love is now a competition.
Wishing everyone a very lovely week ahead & hoping that everyone gets the weather conditions that they regionally require & need; for us it is rain & several hours of it.
My thought for today: Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
