I am unspeakably grubby. Actually, I am filthy. After the last trip to the tip this afternoon, I went to get some food (and cooldrinks especially) at Tesco, and caught sight of myself in a mirror and nearly died. My tshirt and skirt are absolutely disgusting, my gardening shoes have holes in the sides,and I was bent over the shopping trolley like a crone. So I slunk around the aisles praying I would not meet anyone I knew, and came home and unpacked it all. Then I went to check on the vacant space, decided to move all the bricks and rubble and clear the debris. I told my family they could fend for themselves when it came to supper.
As you can see, I have the pacing down to a fine art. I should give lectures on the subject.
(Rosaria, the roses are Sweet Juliette, Golden Celebration, Great Expectations, and Golden Jubilee I think. Those are all in the garden, and all have spectacular scents. Alpine Sunset is also one. And Gertrude Jekyll. I have 27 roses, so it is hard to remember which is which!)
And finally...... I was outside watering at sunset and the clouds were so spectacular, I came in for my camera. Look at this one - what can you see? Everyone here came up with the same answer instantly, and as it is part of me, that was special. Look again a little closer.......
And then there is this one. it looked to me as though God Himself was standing there reaching His arms out to me. It took my breathe away.
