Friday 13th is a day for boom sales in lotteries and for poker machine to be well occupied. I don't believe in the Friday 13th tales, thank Hera, crossing fingers. I would buy a lottery ticket if I remembered when in the vicinity of a newsagent and that's only because I very seldom indulge.
I do feel that I will win a huge amount one day. I had better speed up the rate of ticket purchases if I'm ever going to achieve it.
It's a windy, cool, cloudy, sunny day here and such a delight not to be sweating at the least provocation. No humidity!

I visited my doctor 2 days ago to renew the blood pressure script. She was horrified when she read the results.. 195/121 I must admit I was a little taken aback myself. I told her that I had been without medication for maybe 3 weeks. A nice mini lecture followed with her telling me she is available on the phone if I don't want to come in. Also, to rest up as it will take around a month for it to come back to normal. Hell.... I had no problem with that advice!
We drive the 35 ks to visit my mother and give her some of the clothes I made, have a chat and keep a beady eye on the staff etc as I do. Even though it breaks my heart to have her in an aged care facility, it is the only place for her and it has taken me over a year to come to terms with it all. ALL the staff have been so kind and helpful and I don't think it is just put on for visiting family.
We then return to buy food and some reasonably priced winter pyjamas for Mum. From then on all I seemed to do was extra tasks! Hard physical work! I think it is because of the cooler days.
Not today... Only picked lots of avocados after I had asked for the tree to be cut off a little way up the trunk. I figure it's no use having fruit that we can never reach and these trees will reshoot in no time and be accessable next year.
I've had a lovely day on and off the internet. Bliss. Time for more coffee from my own coffee trees and more reading of blogs. xo
