Welcome. Come on in. I have every beverage but no food to offer. I have gone back on my paleo diet and if you were really hungry I could give you a fresh apple cucumber or colourful carrot, organically grown from the garden I am about to join. They are quite yummy.
If we were having coffee I would tell you about this garden. I haven’t been there yet (probably obvious otherwise there would be lots of photos) but will as soon as my toes will allow me to do things like get on my hands and knees I will. It is on the property of someone that lives alone and a friend we met dog walking is a friend of this chap. In order to give company to someone who is a bit isolated in the community they devised this plan of a community style garden where, by invitation, you are invited to have a plot. This means that between the 8 people that have joined the property owner will have visitors most days but as we are all at that age where we may take off for awhile he will look after the plots in your absence and water them on the days that you don’t go. With just 6 of them at the moment they are getting more produce than they can manage – hence the invitation for me to join. I’m really excited about it as I love growing my own veggies but since we moved here I haven’t had the space to do it.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that our house sale is now out of all the clauses where it could be withdrawn from and I am starting to pack in earnest. You probably saw the boxes covering the lounge when you came in. I am packing stuff that I will not want for 6 months to start with and then pack the stuff we are going to take with us when we move in January as we are going to be going into rental accomodation for up to 6 months. It looks as though we might be able to rent one house removed from where we are now so it will be a matter of carrying our boxes down the street.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have nothing to tell you. This week has been busy but without anything of interest to pass on. It was just life and we were living it. I am still reading the same book LaRose by Louise Erdrich and enjoying it. Just haven’t had the time to read as much as I would like. Perhaps this afternoon I will put my feet up and read. Keep an eye out as there will be a new Times Past Challenge at the beginning of November.
Now tell me about your week. What you are reading, films you have seen, anything you’d like to share. Thanks Diana for hosting our weekend coffee.and other places to visit for a chat and coffee can be found here.
