Yesterday there was glorious sunshine and it was hot and Augusty. I spent yesterday indoors knitting. Today it bucketed down for several hours. Today I walked into town for a haircut.
Nonetheless, I now have better hair, I have a complete mini cardigan, I have jars in which to bottle home-made passata (recipe from the excellent River Cottage Preserves book by Pam Corbin), and I had lunch with a lovely friend.
Sometimes it is hard to know where to start. I forget sometimes that it's not as important to know where you're going as it is to set off in the first place.
Douglas Coupland is amazing. Do you follow him on Twitter? Do you use Twitter? It's worth it if only for Mr Coupland's occasional remarks. This morning he had posted this: "Life is beautiful: http://t.co/6uBq0xj". As days go, this is a good way to start.
