The photo is actually a sunset - which could be considered symbolic of the end of summer perhaps. I am the first to admit it, but this is probably the first time I have admitted it! I am definitely a summer sloth.
The summer sloth in this case, retreats from the heat around about December and comes to life in the latter stages of March. However, this year, it is almost April. My husband is currently reading the book Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter_Planet and insists on reading out extracts. Not a feel good mood maker for me.
This weekend however, for the first time, I felt the promise of Autumn. The temperature dipped to a heady 27⁰C and it was even a little breezy. Hold me back! Although we had a busy weekend which is typical with a busy and active teenager, and the odd social outing for us, I still managed to get a little excited about the garden. Venturing out and doing physical work. Heavens.
Even if that isn't a wild enough theory, I have been invigorated enough to encourage The Others to agree to a Garage Sale (you may know this phenomenon as a Yard or Boot Sale) in mid-April. So it is marked on the calendar. Although the very thought gives me the chills, it is another thing that has to be faced. Yuk Yuk Yuk - people trawling through our unwanted possessions, trying to beat us down on price.
However, the good side is that The Others (in particular my husband and his Shed) will be doing some clearing out of their own. Lots of works in progress in that Shed.
Also, I had to include a photo of something that I'm not letting go. Not quite in the Objects of My Affection Category, but I do really like them both. I decided not to include these items with the other part of the dinner set that has just sold. So I'm keeping the gravy boat and the platter, as a reminder of the rest of the set. For the time being anyway, this may change later when I go through the whole lot again!
