It was my granddaughter Jade's birthday on Sunday, how wonderful it was to speak with her on the telephone, what a joy she is. It was also my sister's birthday on Saturday, another wonderful family chat. Jack has gone up into the 'Juniors', quite a little man, and I did a little cello practice. I also gave my talk at the Belvadere Hotel in Hersonissoss. All the energy I used this week was renewed when I got to hug the big plane tree at Krasi. All in all it has been a most wonderful summer, and now it's back to work. Hm... I feel a book coming on! Don't forget the full moon on Wednesday, a very inspirational time. I have a feeling that the weather may change, time to think about buying a pair of jeans.
