Definitely feeling the beginning of winter. We are in autumn (fall for my US readers) here, and the leaves are changing golden and muted red colours outside. I had a case of cabin fever this morning after an unusual early rise, so I went for a walk in Sandy Bay, by the beach, to move the cobwebs and lighten my mood. When I left, just after school rush hour, the air had a decided bite to it. The clouds were grey with what I could only hope was rain.
This afternoon, the rain did eventuate, and I finished reading the third book in the school teacher memoirs of Andy Seed. I am hoping to loan the first and second in the series in the coming days. If you enjoy light entertainment and a retro look at schooling, then I recommend his books.
I did my usual thing of reading the books too quickly. After a dinner of poached eggs, salad and my delicious oat bread (highly recommended) I watched Madame Secretary, and The Good Wife under a throw, with a hot water bottle on my back, wearing slippers, a polar fleece and thermals. I'm almost as prepared as a Scout!
