Where do I start today?
Nearly a couple of hours ago I received an email from an old friend (that is to say we've known each other for more years than either of us would care to count and she bears goes by the sobriquet of She To Whom I'd Entrust My Life) asking if I was ok because I hadn't blogged for several days. That was notwithstanding that she's at their house in France and we'd spoken yesterday! Leastways I think it was yesterday. I wasn't wearing a watch this afternoon and eventually realised that I'd had my afternoon coffee at what I though was mid afternoon but must have been about 5 o'clock and nearly wine time!
I'm certainly not thankful for this week's weather! But I am thankful that it showed my beloved Island in a Good Light to my visitor last week.
What else am I thankful for today? I'm thinking hard. It's not that I don't have things about which I'm thankful but it's not so easy to enunciate them each week.
I've been trying to sort out my summer: visits and visitors; me to friends' and friends here to me. It's really hard trying to organise a whole summer with so much happening.
When I see that in print in front of my eyes I realise just how much I have to be thankful for when my biggest problem is how to organise my summer.
