Recent days have been filled with appointments and driving to and fro.
Sometimes you just have to stop and 'smell the roses'.
The next best thing to the flower shop is our local grocer.
I always like to see what is new and was happy to discover plums, pumpkins
and an array of other goodies.
There is always a mystery or two or three...
Elephant garlic, English Marrows and Pommelo's.
Anyone know what these are?
I managed an outing out to the country in the afternoon where I had a run in with my beloved
navigation system 'Tom Tom'. We got lost. I say 'we' because it was his fault.
The end result was a great lunch with my dear friend Kate.
We were laughing on our way out of the pub at the great collection of art
about a delightful elderly couple with attitude...English attitude.
Note to self...never think one left turn
and then a quick right and another left turn will solve all your problems.
You then end up with photos of a sign, a car, a phone box
a bench and a bin.
Once home, I popped on my 'sneaks'..
grabbed the bike...
and took a ride out our back door to meet Mr. H at the train station.
On this occasion...while I was busying taking pics,
our dog, Tika had other ideas.
Pond water, yuch!
Well, I smelled the roses by feeling the fruit and veg, taking a long ride in the country,
having lunch with a dear friend and riding my bike alongside a wet dog and Mr. H.
As I was doing this I was thinking of my evening plans as I was not done
with my 'smelling the roses' moments...just one more.
Something city, something country...
Anyone remember this??
Baby Boom (1987)
Another Diane Keaton classic.
