Sun and Rainclouds.
One minute it is sunny and the sky is blue and the next minute it is cloudy, with big angry rain clouds hovering threateningly overhead.
Richie and the dogs went to the park in the hope of it staying pleasant; hope so as it would be nice for the dogs.
They really need a good time in the park, as they have not had a long walk in the park due to the shitty weather recently..
In a moment they should be back, as I typed that the door opened and the dogs charged in followed by Richie.
They are very happy and relaxed now which is just how we like our dogs to be, Richie is off down the market via the pet shop for some of the dog's favourite food, tripe.
Have eaten tripe in England, and have cooked it myself and it was very good, I marinated it overnight and cooked it in red wine, in a spicy rich tomato sauce and it was gorgeous.
Recall some friends coming round for dinner, they thought the food was very good and tried unsuccessfully to guess what it was.
They guessed all sorts but never what it was, just when I nearly told them what it was, one of them said 'as long as it is not tripe'.
At that moment I was so relieved that I had not told them that it was indeed tripe, can't remember now what I told them.
Probably that it was a piece of beef, that needed long slow cooking, felt bad for not telling them but did not want to upset them.
Forgot then that not everyone wants to be adventurous and try things that are strange to them.
Sitting is going slowly; when I sat for four hours on Tuesday it all went well, but subsequent days have been more tiring.
That could also be the effect of the antibiotics, which do wipe you out and upsets the entire body.
As soon as the course of antibiotics is finished I have another course of tablets to take.
Richie is off to the market now, poor Spike is crying because he can not go with him, poor little thing.
He has just come back from an hour in the park having a wonderful time chasing the ball and has nothing to be so upset about, but that is not how Spike sees it.
It is sunny again, the last hurrah before the sun goes away for the day, hope you all have a good day today.
