Oh yes, I am still doing lots of sitting and with it comes lots of thinking.
The other day I was thinking about something I had read about sitting for long spells. It was suggested if you are using a computer, watching a batch of DVDs or similar, you should get up every 30 minutes and go for a little wander. Apparently it is very good for your heart to do that. I do tend to spend a couple of hours at a time on the computer on Facebook, looking after my farms in Farm Town, playing Scrabble or just researching one thing or another, and then of course there is blogging.
I decided I would set my little kettle timer to 30 minutes and make sure I got up and wandered around for a few minutes when the little bell rang. I have been doing that for several days now and, who knows, I may even lose a little weight through the increased activity.
I may have told you that Candy likes hunting lizards and geckos and often brings them in to show us. Phil then hurriedly grabs the dustpan and brush and pops the poor little critter back in the garden. Well, the other day Phil got in the car and there on the dashboard was what I call a fence lizard:
It rained in Perth last night.....not a lot but at least it saved us having to water the garden (our set night) but I think the sprinklers will be out again on Tuesday night (our other set night). We have had a real taste of summer during September and October and have virtually had no real spring weather with those usual delightful balmy days with spring showers. Our dams and reservoirs are at their lowest level for many years. By the time our summer ends in about March or April I think we will be well and truly ready and waiting for winter to begin in June.
