SATURDAY OCTOBER 19...9.58AM
I'm sitting on the sofa in the Naya while it's cool enough to do so...it's been too hot to do so all week...and once the sun creeps round to this side of the house it will be too hot again!
There's the sound of a tractor engine in the distance, accompanied by male (Spanish) voices trying to be heard above it...also of gunshots- it's Fiesta (again!!) in one of the neighbouring villages, and on Fiesta days the men gather together to go hunting in the surrounding countryside.There is also the gentle rumble of Boo's snores from the side of the sofa!
I've just prepared a healthy bowl of fruit ( plums, a nectarine and the beautiful little jewel-like seeds of pomegranate) and yoghurt for my breakfast.
There are birds twittering in the trees now and I've just noticed that one of the 'noodles' has blown into the pool..it must have been windy overnight.
Once I have eaten my breakfast I am going to make a Banana Loaf to take to a friend who is just out of hospital...and then I'm hoping to get some scrapping time..it's been too long since I've done any!
The 10 o'clock bells have just started to chime and my Spanish neighbour's chickens have started to squawk...the second lot of bells have started...in our village they are rung twice- once for God and once for The Devil!
Thanks for reminding me just to sit and 'be', ALEXA!
Tanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
