Today there was actual SUNSHINE.
The first, tiny cherries are out, too bitter yet to eat but thrilling to look at:
I ran into the older niece and we took the dogs swimming in the burn:
Then there had to be a lot of lying about in the sunshine to dry off:
In celebration of the weather, I made lemonade, except with the limes my mother sent instead of lemons:
(I recommend the juice of three limes, one tablespoon of Demerara sugar, one litre of water, and vast amounts of ice. The ice is important; the thing must be freezing cold. Then I throw in some sliced limes and a couple of leaves of mint. Mmm mmm.)
Then there was a bit of this, that and the other:
It was rather a lovely thing, altogether. I feel quite still and calm. I did not sleep that well last night, so quite soon I am going to stump up the stairs with my book and have an old lady early night. What a wild life I do lead.
Have a delightful Friday.
