Yesterday I got more gift buying done, as birthdays are mounting up this month. That was most gratifying and exhausting so today I am trying to not move much. I used my brain this morning, worked on my novel, made a phone call to cancel cable television which I never watch, wrote a couple of e-mails, chatted on the phone with Mum and now my brain has come to a grinding halt. I am sitting admiring my ankles, which are delighting me at the moment by not yet being swollen. It is one of those moments where I think Oh wow, this is what my ankles actually look like. They aren't too bad really.
Things more interesting than my ankles.....
Sophie is an installation artist. This work is called Rabbit in Shopping Bag and is installed in my hallway.
In real life the lampshade is not at all pink but closer to gold-beige. This colourful wooden bead necklace called to me in a thrift shop but I found I could not wear it. I drape all my unwearable necklaces over lampshades. Doesn't everyone?
The geraniums are still persistently blooming.
