Our year began with buttercups. They took up residence on our back lawn after a kind neighbour provided us with a truckload of sand to fill the backyard lake created by a long, wet winter. It seems buttercups love sand and fresh dirt. Adrian and neighbourhood dogs prefer grass. Eventually Adrian won Buttercup Wars and turned his attention to painting the house. Painting successfully completed, we settled down to a celebration of 50 years in our current home. Celebration ended when COVID finally caught up with us. Not fun, but we survived and had completely recovered by the time our daughter-in-law, Barbara, arrived one afternoon with Phryne, our new Samoyed granddog. She’s a total charmer and I can’t wait to meet her again soon.
Books? Well, I haven’t written any new ones recently, but I’m contemplating publishing a collection of my short stories. Only contemplating, so far but it may happen …
With good wishes for 2023 and a year of Happy Reading to all.
