It was a really good day, M. I'm so glad we got everything planted out. We have had a wild storm since. Our mechanic neighbour dropped G's car back in the late afternoon & sat with us under the verandah & had a couple of beers. We chatted about lots of things, but somewhere in there, I slipped in that he may be able to help out with a problem. G would never ask, but I know he is really good with welding & loves a challenge. He thinks he can make us a doggy door,to go in the middle of our sliding doors. He seemed quite keen. He took measurements & photos. I have decided to get little things fixed when I can to make living here even better.Oh, your afternoon sounds so nice, and I bet all the plants will love being planted and getting rained on! I hope you find a really nice salt water pool. I can't go in pools with much chlorine either. It's funny you were trying to find a pool at the fire department in your dream - the fire and water symbols are funny. It's wonderful to hear that icing your knee works so great!!
I really loved getting some gardening done & it really did take my mind off my knee. I had to sit down fairly often, but had a sense of achievement instead of frustration. No tears yesterday.Lovely to read about the gardening Not missing it yet in my Autumn but it's nice to know that somewhere gardening is going on.
Really glad you found some relief from the pain too.
If only people would stop peeing in the pool... The harsh chlorine smell doesn't come from the original chlorine but from the reaction between it and the pee present in the water.
I was going to go on an outing today, but it is really stormy so think we'll stay at home. Maybe tomorrow. We were going to have our sheep shorn tomorrow but that can't happen now. G wants to do some cooking today. If it settles down I'll get outside & tidy up what the storm rearranged.
