Today has been much better. The pain in my hip has been considerably less. I am taking painkillers now and have done as necessary for a few days. I had a phone appointment with a doctor from my surgery. We are trying for an X-Ray, although they are now really only checking for fractures. I said I would prefer to have one than wait for the second spike of Covid-19 when the weather is cooler, and when my hip might be more painful than I can cope with.
We shall see.
I have been editing for most of the day. It really is a tedious task, which boggles the mind. I’ve also been in close contact with a friend who is an artist, though she hasn’t done any for ages. She writes.
I picked my first tomatoes today. The flavour is amazing. Not like shop bought ones that are picked early. I shall have some with basil and mozzarella, drizzled with oil. I will roast some with a sprinkle of pepper.
There are strawberries in the the kitchen too, and lots more ready to crop in a day or two.
I may plant some spinach as the weather is good. So lovely in a salad, or wilted in a stir fry.
I am still rather low, but went out for a while this morning. It made me feel better. I’m glad today was not too hot, though certainly warm.
I feel pleasantly tired.
