Labor Day. The end of summer. Whatever happened to the year ? 2021 seems to have started with a rush and then picked up pace as it's gone along. So much for lockdown making the time drag !
A shriek tells me that the family diva wants to get the day started. Sophie's time keeping skills are exemplary but her social interactions could do with some work. After our early morning tour of the garden ( Sophie is oblivious to the presence of a large grey C-A-T asleep on the hammock ) we return inside for the car keys. The ' I have the patience of a saint. Do get a move on ' - look is brought into play.
To the drive thru bakers this morning and a chance for a pre-opening walk around the shopping centre. The two ducks that have made the flower bed outside the electrical retailers are chased. The ducks, it must be said, are at no time in any danger.
Two moorhens on the pond. One hides in the shrubbery. The other , braver one, struts its stuff in the sunshine. I'm guessing that the moorhens chicks are heading off, one by one, to find their own ponds.
The first Christmas e-mail arrives. Is this a record ? :https://www.rococochocolates.com/collections/christmas/
