Wordle . Online word game. Sometimes I've been known to get it in 2. Today the first three lines got me 1 letter. There weren't many left for the 4th attempt so I got it. Beefy. Words like that annoy me. The other day is was 'matey'. I mean, is that legit? Ahoy there matey, find a better word for goodness sake.
Thunder is rumbling around this morning. It's blowing an icy gale and heavy rain is forecast.
A day for K to ....
Make a few loaves of bread
Under my orders 😂
One loaf has already been sent off to elderly neighbour Vaso and her son.
Son is making fassolatha (traditional bean soup) so she can dunk the bread and soften it. Don't think Vaso has too many teeth left
K prepared a pot of fish soup with a whole red hot pepper
He lit the fire
Having brought inside a load of wood
Enjoying a second morning coffee along with a medicinal stiff raki to warm him body and soul
What a pity I couldn't help him. I'm not allowed to lift weights (firewood for a start), put any pressure on my eye (kneading bread), bend down or skip, jump or hop. As if...
I'm not allowed to go outside when it's blowing Saharan dust (most days, though the rain today must have cleared all that) or wash my hair in case I get water in my eye.
I washed my hair after 9 days with the help of my long suffering husband.
9 bloody days! Boy was I relieved to have a clean, non itchy scalp.
I love fasolatha with lots of crusty bread. I’m glad your listening and being a good girl. Freshly washed hair is a lovely feelingReplyDelete
I've got an ogre breathing fire at me if I dare to put a foot out of place. I've barely ventured outside the door for the last ten days. Enough!Delete
I would still swap your Poros paradise for mine in Hibernia LA.ReplyDelete
Noooo, your Hibernia is beautiful and so green and fertile!Delete
Fresh bread and fasolatha - and somewhat less rain and freezingness - we could get on with a winter like that. Not sure about the lack of hairwashing tho - visit a salon maybe?ReplyDelete
I was thinking of a salon but it seems strange to not have a haircut as well. I need a cut and colour but my prison guard won't let me do that for another 2 weeksDelete
I enjoy my daily Wordle (380 games!), the word which annoyed me most was 'palmy'.ReplyDelete
That's another one. What the hell does that even mean. They're really scraping the bottom of the barrelDelete
Roll on your release date.ReplyDelete
Thanks to your subtle clue, I got today's Wordle in one!!!
Lol that'll look damn good on your stats!! Well done....or good reading 😂😂ReplyDelete
Your wood stove is wonderful. If I should ever install another one somewhere, it would be that type with fire below and oven on top. 100% common sense.ReplyDelete
It heats the whole, small , house and is so convenient for cooking, boiling water, heating things upDelete
Did you get told ‘no driving’….The Golfer carried on about having to feed me, clean up after me and also be a chauffeur! Had to do it all 6 weeks later when I had the other one doneReplyDelete
Oddly enough they didn't mention driving. If rather wait till both eyes are done but if necessary I will definitely drive. It means freedom!!!!Delete
I hope my other op is only 6 weeks away
I don't know if I could handle not washing my hair for 2 days, how frustrating for you but not much you could've done, hope you're on the mend now and that fish soup sounds wonderful.ReplyDelete
In summer I wash my hair every day but winter up to four days and I've gotta get the shampoo out. Don't know how I made 9 daysDelete
You reminded me of the time when I couldn't wash my hair (after surgery). I went to my local salon and they were quite happy to just wash it for me - but, then, I never had such an obliging husband!ReplyDelete
Stay warm and enjoy your "holiday" while it lasts :)
My salon is across on the mainland, a ferry boat ride. Only ten minutes but too far and too cold in winter. I'm staying beside the fire!!Delete
I do wordle every day. Yes, some of the words are nuts! 9 days without washing hair? I'd have to come up with a solution after day 3 :)ReplyDelete
Actually it wasn't so difficult. I should have tried earlier. I'm being bullied!Delete
Ps Lynda. I've lost your blog. I know you're still writing but I'm no longer notified . That's why I'm not commentingDelete
