Today's garden happy - a panoramic view. I didn't do the whole of the back, it's missed out the cucumbers to the right, but it's OK. The middle bed is looking very brown and dried up now - I need to cut the geranium back and it might send out new growth.
Good morning, everyone. Yesterday really was a beautiful summer day. Warm sunshine, no humidity and a breeze that kept everything fresh and comfortable. Just perfect. And I slept under the cover through the night. What more could one ask for.
I had a lovely chat with Chris before setting out to Morrisons to get stuff for fruity gins. I hate to think what the checkout lady thought of my three bottles of gin but she was very controlled and said nothing really.
Then I set to (not that it was hard work) and have some raspberry gin and some black cherry gin sitting in nice, big kilner jars to keep the strawberry gin company.
The other bottle will make some damson gin, which was absolutely wonderful when I made some two years ago. I have damsons in the freezer so just need to work out amounts. Thank goodness for calculators!
Sadly, my friend wasn't able to come yesterday afternoon so we will have to fix another time.
Late afternoon, I popped over to see Beth and we sorted out arrangements for the graduation. I've contacted a local pub/restaurant to book a table for Sunday evening and Beth is booking taxis. All good so far!
Today is an easier day. There's Slimming World first thing and Jen is now better and testing negative so will be there.
After that, I have that damson gin to make, some washing to do, a house to tidy, etc. Basic, bog-standard stuff.
The cleaners come this afternoon and then everything should be pristine.
And that's today. Staying cool is the name of the game.
You too; take care, stay cool and drink that water. xx
