Sunny, but still cold
However it was a lovely day to persuade myself to go for a short walk.
“I’ll just go to the corner,”I told myself . “Then straight back.”
It helped that I didn’t have to change my shoes or anything else.
I’m a bit like ” okay, I said I would go , but I need to go now, because in 5 minutes I’ll have gone off the idea. “
I wasn’t always like this. But I am now.
However after getting outside it was so nice that I wandered on and up the hill stopping to take photos.
I stopped to talk to a lady I know about the madness of this war. My Italian is not great but one to one I can communicate. I’ve learned since living here that communication is about much more than words. I still remember meeting a lady about 15years ago when I couldn’t speak very much Italian. But we shared a look after I showed her around James’s workshop. There were no words needed.
As it’s the weekend I finished my latest local scene.
Then I chose the next one and got it ready to paint.
I’ve been enjoying a series of books on my Kindle . The type of books described as ” cosy mysteries”. No blood and gore and a bit of stately house, thatched cottage and countryside stuff. There is only one slightly off putting part which is one of the main characters is called Annie Parker and I don’t really like her. She’s very irritating. I feel that I should like her because she has my name.
Now it’s wine time and tomorrow is back to work properly day. It’s been a good weekend.
