A Magnet

I benefited from a good night’s sleep with much more tolerable neck pain enabling me to concentrate more on all around me, yet not to go out and enjoy the current, albeit cold, sunny weather.

Instead, I focussed on Ellie, engrossed in her favourite pastime of inspecting, and dancing to, the music emanating from anyone’s laptop p.c. It is a magnet drawing her from anywhere else in the room, whatever she may have been doing at the time.

A real favourite is the Clog Dance culled from a post by Boromax, which, by request, has made its way from my device to those of Jackie and Becky, and is often played on demand.

Later, I finished reading the third story in my Gogol collection and posted

This evening we all dined on succulent roast lamb; crispy Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes, including sweet ones; Brussels sprouts, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, and spinach, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden; Ian, Peroni; and I, Calvet Prestige Côtes du Rhône Villages 2022. An interesting conversation about favourite and least favourite meats, fruit, and vegetables ensued.
