A lovely surprise in my mailbox this morning - some beautiful comments on my blog from a gentleman called Izzy who I had written to some time ago, via the net. I hope so much he will keep in touch.
A cool cloudy day. The Green seems quiet without our visitors. Not that they were particularly noisy but they bought a whole world with them that suddenly vanished.
Can't say I have done much today. My foot is still very swollen but not as painful. Audrey rang, we had a chat. And Maggie rang to say she won't be at the meeting tonight. She always gets there early and saves a seat for me. Captain B was around for lunch today, I used up the rest of the tomatoes and made a tomato and chickpea casserole, which turned out quite well. And Linda says she will come round and cook a Thai meal for us, which I hope she will, as she is an excellent cook.
I am re-reading Agatha Christie's "The ABC Murders". This time, I can remember who did it and how and why, but its still fun getting there and watching Hercule Poirot surprise everyone at the end. Very ingenious.
I feel I ought to manage some great thoughts on the political issues of the day, but my brain cells aren't up to it - neither of them. But every day that goes by reinforces my belief in the Bible's warning that the whole world is lying in the power of "the wicked one". When I was first shown that at 1 John 5:19, which says: “The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.”, I did think that if that was true, it would explain so much.
And I feel that more and more strongly all the time.
But, on a much happier, note, it won't be for much longer. A perfect rescue is at hand.
