Back to Routines
About a week ago I came across this guy cleaning the brass kickplate on the door of this pub near Colindale. When I started snapping photos, he asked if I wanted him to move out of the way. "Not necessarily, unless you want to!" I replied. So he stayed put and I kept snapping. I think there was a pole on the right -- or maybe a parked car -- that kept me from centering the door, but I like the unconventional framing and the books piled in the window.
Yesterday morning I took Olga for one last Spring Break romp on the heath. We found some bluebells beginning to bloom under a tree, and now I'm certain we also have them in our yard. We should be getting some interesting flowers soon!
Dave and I saw our visiting friend David off to the airport before joining our former neighbor Chris for lunch -- apparently our old apartment in Notting Hill still isn't occupied. Then we came home to enjoy a quiet afternoon of alone time. I cleaned the house and watched "Moon Over Miami."
I like having visitors, but it's always such a relief to get the house back in order, get the routines back in place. Today we're back at work, as usual, and I feel ready, to tell you the truth.
Oh, and I finally got all my Singapore photos uploaded to Flickr. You can see them here, if you're interested.
