Welcome to Sunday in my little corner of the world ~ where it is cool and quiet and just the remedy I need to cure my fatigue from a very busy week.    It fascinates me how some weeks there is nothing planned and then other weeks many events and appointments fall on the same days.

I have had some good days and one not so very good day at all.   Most of the days have been good and I can learn from the awful day and move forward.  Nothing drastic just absolute frustration at incompetence and right hand not knowing what left hand is doing.    All over and sorted now ~ so on to concentrate on the good days.

Thursday I was able to attend an evening meeting for Transplant Australia and to contribute to plans and schemes afoot ~ I loved it and was pleased to be able to drive myself and not be dependent ~ it was great.  Such high hopes for this group.

Friday was my River Boat trip and an early start was the order of the day and we set off during rain, which mostly cleared and left a sunny but cool days with cold wind.  Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves, there was much laughter, a lovely lunch and beautiful scenery ~ I am sure that everyone came home very tired indeed but contentedly so.

There are many more photographs but these should give you a good idea of the day we had ~ coffee at Hahndorf on the way home at The German Arms Hotel and it was lovely.

Yesterday we celebrated Naomi's birthday a few days early and that was delightful too but all this high days and meetings has left me a little tired and I am finding it hard to keep going today ~ in fact I have taken time out and watched a movie this afternoon.   I can't believe that I had missed this lovely romantic film "Sabrina" with Humphrey Bogart and William Holden and the very beautiful Audrey Hepburn ~ it arrived in the mail ~ a very lovely unexpected but much appreciated gift.  I really enjoyed the entire film - the score was great and I was a little sorry when the end came.

I have a few things to do yet but it will be an early night for me.   I can't begin to explain how very nice it is for me to be out at Meetings and day trips out and celebrations with family and friends.

I became aware of how much I have missed over the illness years and how very determined I am to try to fit as much as I can in to my days and to enjoy the life I am blessed with  ~ going to have to learn and understand the meaning of the words  "pacing myself" but I am willing to learn.

Thank you for visiting the Musings from My Heart - a contented but tired heart today.

Love and hugs,
