Yesterday it was terribly hot, it was Sunday, and I had a lot of things to do. After going to Mass, I swung a bit on the swing, my favorite hobby, then I went fishing, I ate, I read a bit of a certain beautiful book. I also went for a walk with my grandfather in Toriggia, a beautiful town located by the lake; on the boat I enjoyed myself watching children screaming because they wanted to jump into the lake. Too bad I had a bit of a toothache and I could not enjoy the beautiful day. Now it’s time to put the pen back and go for a jog in the garden.
