Swimming on Wednesday morning was good again and more people there but still not busy as they are limiting numbers. During the summer holidays they would normally be running canoeing or snorkeling classes and inflatable play times but all those things aren't happening so there's actually more opportunity to swim than a normal August. I probably need to go more often to make up for lost time as 25 minutes was enough to get me out of breathe and aching. I'd only just bought a new 20 swim ticket just before Lockdown so can go lots of times before needing to pay again.
When it was fine I shifted all the logs from one builders bag that had been standing outside by the woodshed into an empty bag inside the shed, something I've been meaning to do since spring. Now there's a gap to reach all the logs that still need splitting. BiL Andrew will be round later today, weather permitting with either the log splitter or chainsaw or both to split or cut some of the stuff that's been waiting 3 years. Although if he doesn't make it now he's talking about retiring at the end of October so will have a bit more time then.
Also got a batch of roasted onion/pepper/tomato sauce made (as per instructions from Sue in Wales/England!) 1 portion to eat and 4 in the freezer. When I said the peppers from the 3 Thompson and Morgan plants were huge - this is what I mean.........

Rainy afternoons have been spent watching the earlier series of Strike on BBC i-player (see below) ready for a new series starting tomorrow and there's actually some live cricket on BBC this weekend. Colin would have enjoyed that a lot, after all the years of only being able to see the highlights of test matches at the end of the day.
This week I'm grateful for
- Swimming again
- Not watching Strike when it was on TV first time so I can enjoy it now!
- Lots of fruit from the garden
- A good collection of library books
The weather forecast for the weekend is fine but lowish temperatures. That's OK for wood cutting and boot-sale visit and a probable meet up for coffee with Rachel.
Hope you have a good weekend, a Bank Holiday long weekend for some people.
