So Much To Do, Revisited
by admin - 23:01 on 31 January 2012
Life without paid employment continues to be remarkably busy. Work on Chatterbox, despatch of unexpected orders for The Bumper Book of Black Isle Snappery, bike club membership admin, a trip to Tesco, and sawing up timber filtched from beyond The Rural Retreat to help rebuild our long-consumed log pile left no time to be idle.
Then tea was delayed for a summit meeting with The Bumper Book's co-authors to agree publicity and dates for our forthcoming exhibition at Eden Court (still to be confirmed) and the next venue (the Royal Hotel in Cromarty is very keen). It's all go.
However, there was time to stand and stare on a couple of occasions.
Mr Moneybags' field was ploughed today, to the delight of a small flock of gulls which was watched with great interest by Bess. A buzzard also took the opportunity to snap up goodies in the newly turned earth.
This may have been one of the two buzzards I saw later in the day, flapping around a red kite who glided between them with majestic lack of concern. Fantastic.
