Summertime and the living is easy! We are enjoying this beautiful weather (although Paul would like rain for his garden). This morning we went for a 25 km bike ride and the cycling conditions were perfect. We were even entertained by the Red Arrows painting pictures in the sky overhead.
Cycling has been a bit difficult because of my painful knee that I twisted after my pathetic attempt at decorating some weeks ago. Earlier this week I was slouching in front of the television and I gave a lazy stretch. There was an ominous crack, loud enough to frighten Rick who shot under the table. “That was your knee,” Paul said, “are you okay?” I moved my leg gingerly and said “Yes, it still works.” Funnily enough my knee has felt a lot better since, I think something may have clicked back into place.
We have been sitting outside on the terrace a great deal and I cannot resist the temptation to have a glass of something long and cool in my hand. Yesterday I decided to use up some coconut milk and made myself a pina colada. Except I didn’t have a pineapple so I used a banana and I didn’t have any rum so I used vodka. And I didn’t have an umbrella to stick in the glass either. So it wasn’t exactly a pina colada but it tasted okay!
Our dentist rang earlier today to postpone our next week scheduled appointments. The week just gets better and better.
