Feeling a bit ‘meh’…

Posted on
Come fly with me, come fly, come fly away…

I haven’t posted for three whole days!

Oh my, oh my… Quelle horreur… 😉 Not ! But I would have liked to do a post on the 1st of March, since that is officially the start of autumn in the southern hemisphere, and I’m all into that! 😀

Somehow it didn’t happen for me yesterday. I did take my laptop and I opened up the ‘write’ page, but I found myself staring blankly at the screen – just like I imagine a zombie would. And then the cat wanted to get on my lap, and for the moment, what Cat wants, Cat gets. (BTW, he is doing better everyday.) So I had to put the laptop down, and that was that!

We had our first seasonal rain yesterday in the late afternoon. It was a complete blessing after the heat and mugginess of the day. We had a quick ‘storm’ – some heavy wind combined with rain – to start off with, with some soft rain following right after that. So that cooled everything down nicely. It was such a relief! I hope it is the start of a good rainy season.

I am feeling a bit out of sorts lately. I can easily sit and do nothing for hours, which is not a good thing as far as I’m concerned. I honestly think this Covid nonsense is getting into my head at last. And the constant heat. When I’m feeling like that, I don’t even pick up my knitting. What? Gasp!!!! I know, I know … I actually haven’t touched my knitting for at least two days, and not because I’m too busy. So I have to do something about that, I think.

I went out and bought some gardening stuff this morning, just a teeny tiny bit of things. I’m going to feed my orchid now, and I want to do an experiment with a tomato plant that I saw on YouTube. I will let you know how that turns out. Since my disaster with the table renovation, I haven’t done anything further about that, since I had guests in the guesthouse, and I visited my son and daughter-in-law over the weekend, and I plain didn’t feel like it yesterday and today, but I will definitely carry on with that project tomorrow. I will absolutely get that done this week.

The tomato seedlings are doing well.

So… I quickly wanted to give my orchid some food, and then I noticed darn ants all over and inside the pot! Of course I immediately took the plant out of the pot, washed all the ants off, and since it was already ‘unpotted’, I decided trim the roots that don’t look so well, and to also re-pot while I’m at it. Lucky orchid, fed, trimmed and potted all in one fell swoop!

Washed and trimmed.
Fertilized.
Re-potted.

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday, if not quite so wonderful, at least a safe one. 🙂

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)

  3. So good to hear Cat is doing better. I also have those days, just can’t seem to get there. And yay for Autumn too, though we have had a very mild summer, which has been a nice change, hopefully it won’t mean a really cold winter.

    • Thanks. 🙂 Our summer was harsh, especially the last 2 months, but then I know that Feb is normally the worst – I just keep hoping it won’t be as bad. :/
