Good Morning


Not too bad at all, consdering that I was expecting doom and gloom this morning according to the weather prophets. They said we will hang in mist for two days. When Mr. Swiss arose this morning it was very misty, but by the time I stopped hugging the duvet the clouds began to clear and there was even some blue sky showing.

Yesterday the trees were covered in frost most of the day. It is also very cold still, but no frost on the trees.

I was busy yesterday reading on in “The Shining” by Stepen King. I decided to read the book, as after reading the sequel, Doctor Sleep, I realised that some of the story lines in the original book did not fit the film I saw.  I am glad I am now reading the book as it is even better than the film, with a lot more details about “The Overlook” hotel and its dim past. There were even gangsters that killed each other in one of the rooms. There were animal shaped bushes in the garden which now and again decided to move and a few other strange dead people walking around.

It was a night of horror as Mr. Swiss found a film that he recorded known as No. 10 Cloverfield Lane. I do not watch TV very much, but even this film got my interest. It was a typical madman keeps woman, and a man, in his hidden bunker. He wants to protect them from the Martians that have landed and want to take over the world. It does have an interesting twist at the end, although I do prefer to read a book.

And now I should really move on. I have one of those dinners today that I can begin to cook now and let it simmer until lunch time, meaning I have time this morning for other things, like a little bit of ironing, a walk with the vacuum cleaner and just taking it easy.

I was studying my iPad at 5.30 a.m. this morning and when I was finished I fell asleep again, meaning three simultaneous alarms awoke me at 7.30. I just like to keep track of time now and again, although I slept on. Sunday there is never anything really interesting happening, so I will move one. I am being observed by about 20 sparrows in the opposite tree, something like Alfred Hitchcock here sometimes, although sparrows do not usually pounce, they just sit and wait for a fresh filling in the birdhouse.

Enjoy the Sunday wherever you are, it will be Monday soon enough and another refreshing begin to the week ahead.

  1. Went back from the subway to my house yesternight, late at about 11 pm. And woke up this morning to – SNOW. Snow covers everything, streets, roofs, trees, cars – and it is still snowing, though it has turned more into sleet right now.

  2. I got woken this morning by three furiously barking dogs, letting me know that not only had my son arrived, but his partner had arrived too. They have a sort of double bark when more than one person has arrived. It’s another gray day today, but no rain expected till the middle of the week, probably they day we are supposed to drive into Boston. That’s the way it usually works. It is colder today and supposed to get really winter cold by the end of the week. I suppose it’s about time.

    • Funny how dogs always bark when someone arrives, although my cat can be in a meadow on the other side of the appartment, but appears from nowhere if you use a tin opener. It is always when you have to go somewhere that the weather changes for the worst. My son and daughter-in-law are visiting next week with the baby. I hope it doesn’t snow, it is almost a two hour drive away.
