Then, after a hospital visit I took a quick drive round by Rise ... work is making great progress now and the installation is almost completed. Roll on the day when the last of the fences is down and the work office has been removed.
The fruit for today was a fig ... not a very nice one as it happens. These lacked the sweetness and the full centre of crunchy seeds ... not a pleasant bite at all ... maybe tomorrow's fruit will be a lot better.
Tomorrow is another day ... so a bit of work to do for that before I call it a night ...
Grant, O merciful God,
that as thine holy apostle Saint James,
leaving his father and all that he had,
without delay was obedient unto the calling
of thy Son Jesus Christ, and followed him;
so we, forsaking all worldly and carnal affections,
may be evermore ready to follow thy holy commandments;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
