Ah yes, and it serves me well not to have my mobile (cell) phone on my person!
Sorry about that dear zavk!
At least, it gives us a bit more time to tidy the house before the guests arrive.
My mother-in-law is visiting from Melbourne as well today, so it should be an interesting day!
Weather is beautiful. Blue sky, slight breeze, expected top: 21 deg C.
Lookng forward to your arrival, Zavk.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
