I am never sure what a day will bring, and morning arrives far too early.Early for me has been about 5.30 or 6 a.m. but for some time now it has begun at 4.a.m. or so.Hugh wakes, the crutches go clickety-clack up the hall, coffee is made and the fire lit. ( a fire in December, we are already starting to use next winter’s wood, so more trees will be felled very soon!!!) And friends near us are also still having a fire, they are struggling to find December is so cool !!!The last time we visited the hospital I asked, very politely and quietly, if they could replace these ones with some that do not click!! The nurse just looked at me, as if I had asked for diamonds!!! I’m sure she doesn’t listen to it all day!!! She gave Hugh a new set, and they both click now.
On a bright note… a very bright note,( not to mention very expensive),… we went shopping on Monday, and Hugh has the Rolls Royce model of a Lazy-Boy chair.I tried to take a photo, but with so many windows there was too much light. And, guess what, both Felicity and Ginger Boy have found it to be so comfy. So you can sit, rock, recline,or sleep, Photo courtesy of the Internet.
Some flowers taken in previous years to brighten the days of those further North, I see many of you have winter cold, with snow falling as I write.
Golden Day Lily
Bearded Iris Bud
Apricot Day Lily
Deep Purple Bearded Iris
