Back to work today, a great day, not too much culture shock, and an opportunity to give the office a good clean and tidy in preparation for a great and abundant year. I managed to pick up some fruits and veg for juicing. Stone fruit at the moment are at their prime, and at lunch I was in White Peach Heaven.
I picked up my mail, stacked up from 3 weeks of holidays, and received a late pressie – 10 Chinese Tea Flower Balls, those ones that open and blossom in your cup. So gorgeous and very very appreciated.
It reached 38C today, warm and wonderful and just perfect for an evening swim. Littered with drink bottles, watermelon skins and a surfeit of Greek and Italian boy-men, it was nevertheless astonishingly perfect for a dip, a splash, a kick around in the water which was as warm as a baby’s bath. Stressed energies washed away, leaving a jelly like lump of human with a huge smile on her face. Tomorrow is hotter — there may be a repeat performance.
I found whole rockmelon for $2 today. Rockmelon frappe with Rose Syrup will be a late night treat tonight. At lunch, it went into a mixed fruit and veggie juice on ice.
