Sunshine Today.

Old Gipsy Woman, 'Granny Smith'

Dame Laura Knight
[British Impressionist Painter, 1877-1970]

Well for all my optimistic hope that there would be sunshine yesterday it did not happen, instead it started raining heavily as soon as I had posted and carried on all afternoon.

There was not even a glimmer of sun in the late afternoon as there so often does happen after a whole day of rain.

Today is a much better day, it is warm and sunny and the sky is a pale blue with wispy clouds drifting around like fragments of silk scarfs.

Ton will be here at 1.30 to check that all ls still well with my bottom, and to see how the healed skin looks like.

Then it’s off to the bathroom for a quick shower so that I am all ready for our dentist who is coming around at 14.00 to clean my teeth.

Something that I have not been looking forward to, this is I am sure because I have had a month to mull it over.

And to imagine all sorts of horrors, right now a few hours before he is due I can’t remember any of the nightmare scenarios I had imagined in the last month.

Which is good, it is often like that with me I have all the angst and worry beforehand and when the day comes I am calm and alright about it.

It is brilliant that our dentist is prepared to come here to clean my teeth and I am sure my mouth will feel much better once it is done.

All in all pretty fortunate to have such a good people who will visit me at home really do make life so much easier.

Looking forward to catching some rays after our friendly dentist Systse, a name from Friesland, has been, I have been going to him since 1984, and he is an excellent dentist and a fine man.

My only problem is I am scared of going to the dentist and today he is coming here oh well sure it will be ok and once it is done I intend to get some rays outside.

OMG, You have a dentist who does home visits!! What a wonderful service. As I have no dental insurance, I cannot afford to go to the dentist. Sad to say, I haven't been for exactly ten years - not since I was let go from working Part time at the MS Society. We've been living on very little since then.

I'm sure you will feel much better once it's done. Then you can go outside to get some Vitamin D!!

I'm assuming you slept well in spite of dental dreams, and woke without much pain.

My husband is an oral surgeon and it is so hard when he is such a gentle man but people are so afraid of him:( I hope it goes ok for you. And you know for all the people afraid of the dentist, many fall asleep! That is me, i fall asleep:)
Ruby is good, she is such a doll, i need to get some more pics of her in the sprinkler as its her refuge when its hot. She has learned to swim, a great excitement for her over last summer.
Enjoy the sunshine!

Hi Webster,
He came to see me to scrape 3 years of plaque from my teeth which was threatening to cause a nasty gum infection.Felt better once it was over as my gums bled alot at the time.

Hi Julia,
Sytse is a very good dentist so it went well and afterwards it felt brilliant.
Glad he came round as it was three years worth of cleaning that was done today.
Look forward to seeing photos of Ruby soon.
Good to hear Ruby is enjoying swimming.

Thanks both of you for coming by, cheered me up seeing your comments.
Have a pleasant evening.

Hi Herrad, I think having a dentist come to my house would bring eternal anxiety LOL

I hope this finds you having had a nice sleep and good day on Thursday, as I am writing late for you on Wednesday...sunny here this evening.

Hi Stephany,
