Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a mostly sunny day, after the two days of heavy rain, with some cloud about, with lots of 💙-clouds; for a deep and long sleep, my resting heart rate having dropped to its lowest since I obtained a FitBit, at 55 beats per minute; for Minsky coming back home eventually three times today, clearly being excited about being outside in the sun again and chasing birds, after two days of mostly being inside, not without some heart palpitations for me, when she stayed away so long; for a lovely sunny Camps Bay walk, fetching some Maison J croissants which they had kept for me, and buying another ‘lily’ type plant to fill one garden gap; for some Vit D on the terrace, it being so warm outside, Minsky lying on the lounger alongside mine, loving sleeping in the sun, after all her excitement this morning; for a Bakoven walk, watching a wild ocean; for another wonderful concert by Daniel Hope and his Hope @ Home on Tour, in Lübeck this evening, and for it being an extended concert with the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
