June 18: A ceremonial swapping of the tools

The Kärcher is being replaced by the computer tomorrow.

Finally, the concrete around the main farmhouse AND our Stöckli is now clean. Another four and a half hours with that powerful jet spray machine has knackered my wrists again. But the end result, and knowing I won’t have to do it again for another two years, is nice.

Clean as a whistle!

The cement in front of the house didn’t scrub up as well as the terrace

My little garden, just because …

It feels like I’m having a ceremonial ‘swapping of the tools’ – the yellow Kärcher beast is all packed away, and now I’ve taken out the travel case for my computer. It’ll be coming on the bus with me tomorrow for my ‘first day’ on the job. I wonder how many hours a week it will involve? All will be sorted out soon enough, I imagine.

Fell off the no sugar bandwagon this afternoon and ate … *gasp* a cherry tomato!! They just looked tooooooo good to not try one.

We’ve started watching House of Cards on Netflix which I’m really enjoying. Kevin Spacey is brilliant. Just brilliant! It’s definitely adding to my mental fitness.

My plant for the day is another herb. Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is my favourite because it goes with lamb. Mmmm lamb. (I love how the thyme was vulgaris and this is officinalis. How official!)

Time for bed. I actually have a very good reason to get up early tomorrow! Yahoo!

Wishing you a wonderful day.

  1. Have a wonderful day at work. Will be great to get your teeth stuck in to something. And you certainly don’t have to feel you have neglected your gardening duties – everything looks spectacular.

  2. Enjoy your first day at work Ange, it will be challenging no doubt being a new occupation, but know you will take that in your stride. You will be able to come home and relax then, in your very clean outer areas; came up very nicely. No wonder you are looking so fit. Pleased you tasted at least one of your cherry tomatoes – don’t think that will affect the no sugar diet!!

    Loved your garden.
