Enjoy the little things
It is the weekend at last and hope you have some time to relax and enjoy the little things.
We have stormy weather here, the after effects of tropical cyclone Lusi, which has been cutting a path through the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu and has now hit our shores.
Rain is what we have been needing here for the garden and the water tanks, but the strong winds we could do without - the olive trees are getting a battering and many of the olives which are ripe for picking normally around the end of March to April, are scattered over the ground.
Often the power goes off with weather like this so all we can do is batten down the hatches and hunker down. We have plenty of candles dotted around the home for light if the electricity fails and a gas oven so we should be right for cooking our dinner.
I hope everyone else is safe and comfortable too.
A multitude of small delights constitutes happiness

Wishing you a very happy weekend, wherever you are and whatever you have planned.
