Day 177: A Scorching Hot Day – Perfect Timing for a Day Off

I have a couple of days off work and it couldn’t have come at a better time as the weather is hot! I’ve also still got tension in my head and neck so I wouldn’t have enjoyed working on the laptop all day.

Anyone that’s been following my blog for a while will know that I’m not one for putting my feet up all day even if I have got a day off, but I did decide early on today that I was going to rest often as I know it’s good for me.

I couldn’t stand sitting in the full 30 degrees sun for long, so I wore a hat and sat out for a while and then pottered about doing some gardening and tidying some of the remaining clutter in the conservatory until it got too hot in there.

The main task was to take the box of CDs out of the conservatory and put them back in the pull out drawers in the cabinet that I put in the garage yesterday. I have hundreds of CDs – titles I’d even forgotten existed. Even though I have Apple Music at my fingertips now, containing any song I want, I can’t part with my CD collection (or my record collection for that matter).

Just a snippet of my old CD collection

As I opening the garage door I got a bit of a fright because one of the speakers was on the floor and I’d put it on top of the cabinet yesterday. I then noticed that a few boxes were also all over the floor next to it. I had a quick look around to see what had happened and realised that this box was the culprit…

It had obviously caved in under the weight of the other boxes that I’d piled up on top of it a couple of days ago when I was making space in the garage. I’m assuming that the boxes had all toppled down and knocked one of the speakers onto the floor. I thought someone had got in there!

The fallen boxes

I tidied everything up and put the CDs away and here’s how it looks now…

Looking forward to another day off tomorrow.

Until then…
