You have already seen what I've been doing at the beginning of September, but that was only the start of what so far is turning out a very good month for me under many aspects.
The picnic on the 2nd was fun, the walk with my sister on the 4th was very nice, and with the beautiful weather still there the next day, I went on another walk. This time I was on my own and took off with my water bottle, mobile phone and only a rough idea of the direction for my walk.
In the end, I went a bit further than I had planned, and was rather tired afterwards (but in a good way).
Monday to Friday were regular working days, one of them spent at my client's office again and a lunch time walk with two of the people there. Tuesday evening saw me meeting up with a group of friends (we are actually volunteers working together at improving the situation at and around our town's train station) at a beer garden near the lake; a most pleasant evening.
Wednesday morning, I had my last post-OP appointment with my eye doctor. Once again, she was happy with how everything turned out, and so am I. I will only see her again for my routine appointment in December.

On Thursday, I took the usual train back from work but got off two stops before mine, exploring how to best get home on foot from there. It was a bit of an adventure, as I had not walked that route ever before, but of course I always knew where I was, since I am familiar enough with the area as such.

Friday was the only day during that week without a walk. I worked from home and then got everything ready for a virtual wine tasting I had booked for OK and myself, my sister and my Mum. The wine itself had arrived earlier in the week, along with a leaflet explaining what to do: When to put which wine in the fridge and when to take it out, along with suggestions for food and so on. We had a great time, and it was interesting to compare notes on who liked which wine best.

On Saturday morning, O.K. and I went for a run. For the afternoon, my Mum had invited us over for coffee and home-baked plum cake - delicious!
Sunday was truly deserving its name with wall to wall sunshine and brilliant blue skies. It was Open Monument Day, an annual event where listed buildings and other interesting places normally not open to the public can be visited. We took several guided tours, but more details will have to wait for another post.
A lot of walking for one week, you think? Well, it was partly due to the beautiful weather we had and the golden light that I could not resist, and partly in preparation for our upcoming hiking holiday - we'll be off to the mountains tomorrow!
