Up at 0600 this morning to take she who must be obeyed to present various food offerings to monks. I don’t normally get involved with such adventures, but it was her birthday so I made an exception. Being a lady, it would not be polite for me to share her age, but telling you that it ends with a zero and should be a time when life begins is giving nothing away. After the monk food thingie, I spent the rest of the day in a rather hot garden, painting walls, moving pebbles, and cursing the day I bought the sodding wheelbarrow.

Also ending in zero is my photo total on Flickr, 10,000 to be precise; with the 10,000th shot being that of the head monk receiving alms this morning.
