Welcome to Tuesday - the last official day of our winter - but unofficially looks like we have more wet, windy and cold days ahead,  Today is beautiful sunny but the forecast for later in the day is for rain rain rain.

Been to visit a friend who is not very well - she is scheduled for hip replacement soon and today is a pain filled day for her - I took her some chocolate - hope that eases the agony of not being able to do very much.

I came home with a supply of books she has cleared from her bookcase and of course I am delighted to adopt them.  I really must go through my bookshelves and clear some that I no longer need.   There are some books that just must stay and be part of my life.  Even looking at them across the room stirs memories.  I love reading so was very pleased to bring them home.

I have had a phone call from the hospital and my next admission for yet another ERCP is September 23rd. - so that is definitely sooner rather than later.
I have the pre-admission clinic on 16th. - so September is shaping up to be a busy month - Friday 10th. is my Clinic and Specialist appointment, and of course there will be the mandatory blood tests to be done. There will be an appointment of some sort every week.  Ho hum - that's the way it is and just being alive and well is enough.  I have absolute faith in my Medical team to keep me well and alive too.

I don't really have a lot of news to share with you  - emptied some big pots in the garden and now need to buy some potting mix (shall have to do some sweet talking to get someone to come to the shops and lift the bags for me.)  That won't be a problem I know.  I don't know what I shall plant in the pots - have to be something that will withstand the extreme heat Mother nature is likely to give to us during our long hot summer.   I have baby spinach in pots and last year managed a few tomato plants and capsicums too.

Gardening is not my favourite hobby - so I do it really easy - big pots and hardy plants.  Easy to weed and to water too.

Everything else seems to be going along nicely and I hope that it is for you too.  I hope that your Tuesday is a good day for you with lots of smiles and the pure joy of friendship.

Take and be safe whatever you do.

Love and hugs,

"Grow what you love.
The love will keep it growing."
