Sigh of Relief!
I got an e-mail from Match.com yesterday warning me that my profile was about to be deleted. Since I haven't logged on to Match in at least a decade, and I'm sure I deleted my profile (or at least removed it from public view) long, long ago, I suppose that's fine. Or has it been public all this time and no one has tried to date me?! There's a sobering thought.
We had great news on the apartment yesterday -- the landlord is renewing our lease. Whew! I can't tell you how relieved that makes me. I had visions of putting all this work into the flat only to be kicked out. And the rent's staying the same.
I had a gin & tonic in the garden last night to celebrate. Dave, who is abstaining from alcohol these days because of his Crohn's, sat with me and absorbed it vicariously.
I took this photo on Sunday in Trent Country Park. My initial impulse was to make it black and white, because that seems to emphasize the shape of the bush more -- but on second thought I think it works in color, too.
Dave and I have started watching a fascinating Netflix show called "Dirty Money," on the recommendation of some coworkers. It's basically a series of hour-long documentaries about people and corporations whose ill-gotten gains have landed them in trouble. If I'm not mistaken, one of the episodes is about Trump. We're only two episodes in, but we like it a lot!
