"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Not that old...

... actually - I feel about 32.  Wishful thinking perhaps, but nevertheless, that is how old I feel today.

And, as they say, you're as old as you feel.

Thankfully, this morning RMan didn't greet me with this...
... in fact I got a cup of rooibos and a slice of toast in bed :)

Had to be quick though, as Dr A called on Wednesday night and asked if he and his lady could pleeeease come for the weekend, and RSon arrived on Thursday evening late for the weekend too :)  Full house means no "lie-ins", but who cares.

Busy day / weekend ahead, so catch you later... :)

Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;)
