*Nothing better when you can combine your day at the job with business and pleasure. I went to the DSC yesterday, it was a nice warm absolutely gorgeous day for a drive and when I got there, I spent probably about 30 minutes on the fence conversing with the donkeys. Some were just enjoying the sunshine, like my little Sam here....while Rosie is just lost in thought. Rosie looks pretty ratty these days due to the ill effects of a bad case of rain scald she suffered a few weeks ago.
By the time I was on my way back to the office it had become cloudy and the temperature had dropped drasticly, the wind was blowing like crazy and it was cold to stand there and watch, but nothing keeps you warm inside like watching donkeys and mules. So I spent some time with the mules and then the Girls in the Garden Paddock.

*Last night was also stitching night at the centre, and I can honestly say I actually stitched too and got quite a lot done. It helps to stitch only one colour at a time and since it's still all green it was an easy and mindless go for the stitched part. But that's ok, what done is done. :) The group was small again last night, but it sure didn't mean that it was quiet and the laughter was easily heard through the quiet building, and lots of topics were covered. What's fun about this group is that we are all connected through stitching but we are a very diverse group and every indiviual persues her own passions, so there are always many different topics to be covered and explored, we all take interest in what the others do and it's never onesided. I think that's what makes this group so much fun, and even if you are an odd ball out, like nobody in the group loves donkeys lol, you will always find someone who you have something in common with and it's not stitching.
*Still not feeling a 100%, mostly I am tired, as the pain in my leg has kept me awake most of the nights lately. Just need some good night sleeps to catch up on all these sleepless nights. Some mornings I can get barely out of bed and by lunchtime I am totally sapped of my energy....just want this to be over. ( Can you tell I make a horrible patient, I hate being unwell or sick, it's such a waste of time).
I am glad for all the things I have to do otherwise I would just totally veg out on the couch and sleep all day...but then maybe my body would need that right now.
*This weather is crazy...one minute it's springlike warm and then it's freezing cold again. Today it's cool and cloudy.
