On the hunt for… play

This weeks’ On The Hunt For Joy challenge is mix play with everyday, and Cee asks what we do for ‘play’ every day.

I had to wait until the end of the day and think back. I often spend some part of every day standing at my back door and spying on the birds, so that I don’t disturb them.

It’s probably going to lead to the ruin of the next crop of apricots, as I have no idea what they are doing, but the result is half-eaten leaves on the ground and the limbs stripped bare. But the buds seem ok.

Then, I always check for ripe strawbs, as they’ll continue nearly all year, with maybe a month or two break, and are still flowering.

If I get a big slab of time I might make cards

Take a walk at my favourite spot

or bake something, like today (ginger nuts)

They all give me joy.
