Dear Blog readers
Me obsessed with my computer(s), no never, well pehaps just a little bit. I definitely do not sit at my computer(s) all day, only in the morning when I have my breakfast and in the afternoon after my golden oldie midday sleep. Of course the evening can get a little boring with nothing to do, TV is not my thing. They bring the same old thing all the time. For that reason you must have changes in your life, something completely different. By the way if you are wondering how I managed this photo booth photo on my Apple, with both hands occupied, I also had to think it over. I had the iPhone in my right hand and the iPad in my left. I positioned my blue tooth mouse next to the computer and pressed it with my elbow to take the photo. That is not obsession, that is being clever.
You say I always write computer(s) as if I had more than one. Of course I do. I have an apple, a Microsoft and of course my iPad and my iPhone, they all serve their purpose according to the time of the day. The iPad is the standby, to be used in the empty hours. There was once a non-online life also in the far gone days. It was filled with knitting and crocheting and housework and bringing up the kids. Today I no longer knit because pullovers are not my thing, far too hot and no-one is interested in my knitting. Since both of us are retired, we are now clothed in jeans and t-shirts and wear Sketcher shoes. The kids now have their own computers and no longer need mine. Of course if they let me out I will wear something more exclusive, a designer t-shirt and nice comfortable stretchy trousers and street sketchers. You never know who you might meet, although it seems all the people I meet are dressed in a similar fashion.
I only said to Mr. Swiss the other day, you never see ladies wearing skirts these days but only trousers. He asked if I would wear a skirt and I decided no. My waist long disappeared and where it used to be can now be covered by a long shirt. This seems to be quite common amongst the ladies of my age.
So where were we, yes my obsessions, which really do not exist. In the time in between studying my iPad (usually when I awake from my night sleep – it is always on my bedside table) and my iPhone which I also has a function as a bedside lamp, I go about the daily chores. These begin with a “Good Morning” blog on my computer whilst I am eating breakfast. I was thinking about not writing a “Good Morning” blog as there never really seems to be anything new to say, but life does not have to be full of events, it can just happen. If I do not write my “Good Morning” blog panic might arise amongst those that read it and it could cause an alarm amongst the world population. I can see the headlines in the newspaper “Where is Mrs. Angloswiss?” “Now the second day without the regular “Good Morning” blog appearing” etc. etc., has she been kidnapped by a rival blogger and I really do not want to cause concern amongst my readers, so the “Good Morning” blog remains. Not an obsession, just an inbetween pasttime.
After a shopping expedition, cooking lunch and a recovery sleep I am back in action. Again the problem would reoccur if I did not write the daily prompt. There would be an empty space on the grid, so why cause panic. If I write my daily prompt, the world is happy, everything is in its usual place.
Of course I did have obsessions in my life. I used to smoke but decided I was wasting too much time when I could be doing other things, like writing on my computer. I still like to take a walk in the fresh air, although my physical state no longer allows marathons. I usually blog about my walks, supported with photos, when I return to my cyber world.
Mr. Swiss and I do still hold real life conversations. Of course we do not only text each other, although I usually send my shopping list to his iPhone when I have written it, to be sure we both buy the same things.
No I am absolutely not obsessed with my computer(s) and other such appliances, but let’s face it, life would be just a little boring without them.
from your daily blogger – see you in the reader, the grid and perhaps by e-mail 🙂
