The snow remains, but it does not change so much. The frosty designs on the trees are now gone, which is a shame as they looked so pretty. The photo was taken as we were leaving our estate this week. Yesterday I did not go anywhere or do anything particular.
I was quite happy when composing my shopping list for the week-end as I actually had ideas what to cook. I noticed this week a few special offers in the supermarket and will be taking advantage. So yesterday evening I sat down with my app on the telephone and wrote it all down. As I am connected by cloud to Mr.Swiss he also knows my intentions. He also adds to the list now and again, but that is quite a good system. What I forget he remembers, and vice versa. If we both forget, then that is the human touch.
I also finished my book yesterday evening, an english police criminal story, the first in a series “Dead Wrong” and I think I might have been dead wrong to read it. It was OK. I like reality but this was a little too much reality. It begins with finding a plastic bag with sawn off fingers – OK, an isolated case, Then it continues with a head in a plastic bag and a few other body parts being discovered. The eventual solution to the drama is a surprise to see who dunnit, but not the best criminal story I have read lately. Coupled with the fact that the book was “only” 200 pages on my Kindle, it was too short for me. I like them long and full of twists and turns. This was more like a butchers department in a supermarket, short and cut up with some blood splashes in between. Now have to decide on my next book. I read that one of the top best sellers on the New York Times list at the moment is 1984 from George Orwell. Is that surprising when regarding the state of things at the moment but I read that already twice. Each time I read it I realise how much more fiction becomes fact.
I think for the first time ever for me I unfriended someone yesterdy in Facebook. No big deal, but suddenly people are getting strange ideas and interpreting things in their own way. I cannot be bothered and why should I?There are enough problems in the world, without having to put up with ignorance.
The gardener called yesterday and finds it would be a good idea to cut a few bushes in my garden. Actually there is not a lot to do, but he will be coming this afternoon. He wanted to come after lunch, but I postponed the visit for 1-2 hours and after lunch we have our resting time. I hope the birds are agreeing to his plans as the gardener wants to reduce the branches on the apple tree, and that is one of their favourite places for the birds to sit and watch.
I am now off to prepare for my shopping trip and organise the appartment before leaving. See you later on the flip side.
