I spent most of yesterday and this morning writing, which felt good. It's been over a week since I made any headway with my book, so it was good to get back to it. Meanwhile, Kevin pruned some of our lemon trees. The trees are prolific, but the branches are getting really tall and we can't reach most of the fruit, so what's the point. A good pruning will help keep the tree healthy and help produce bigger, juicier fruit. Well, that's the hope anyway.
Tonight, Kevin went to play football (soccer). Albarito asked him to join their teams during the Championship. They were really impressed with Kevin's skills last time he played (even though Kevin feels rather rusty and self-conscious). Last time, there weren't any substitutes to fill in and give the players on the pitch time to rest so it's a long and tiring game when you have to be on the whole game. And indoor football is much faster than outdoor football because the pitch is smaller. Everyone's running all the time. It's nice that he can get out there and kick a ball around and have some 'guy' time no matter the outcome.
And I'm quite happy sitting here... writing. It's been cool today and rather windy (feels like a fall day) so I have a fire in the fireplace burning nicely, a glass of wine and my Frankie keeping me company... it's all good
