Oh dear, what to write about a good morning when the mornings are dreary and dull outside, no snow, no rain, no nothing, just complete boredom seems to reign. However, I always have something to say or show, even if it is only a normal average breakfast, and normal on my side means that the computer is sharing the joys of the morning. I have now fired it up and am ready to go.
I also had a few additions to my cloud shopping list, shared with Mr. Swiss and had a brilliant idea to make a cloud of reminders. The things that golden oldies tend to forget two minutes after they decided it would be a good idea. I did not want to keep it to myself but let Mr. Swiss share on a cloud. He does not seem to be so keen on the idea. Shopping lists are one thing, but the important stuff that should be dealt with often gets lost on the way. I seem to have nothing better to do.
Today is the big day, I will pick up my new iPhone X. I enjoy all these new gadgets, but when they are working. I do not enjoy setting them up, but the guy in the store will do it for me. My cloud etc. is synchonized, so what could possibly go wrong?
We had various prints in the snow outside when the snow arrived. The big ones with the imprint of a shoe are those of Mr. Swiss as he plodded to the bird house to fill it up with birdseed. The birds are eating rapidly at the moment and are we buy a 5 kilo bag almost weekly. We have the biggest, fattest birds in the area. They are having problems balancing on the trees due to overweight. On top of this I feed the crows and magpies every morning with the bread remainders. They stand and wait for the food arrival.
The other prints are those from blackbird feet as they are the only birds that tend to hop nearer to our living quarters.
Otherwise I am deep into my second Essex Witch Museum Mystery: A Strange Sight the second book in a trilogy involving ghosts and witches, not only in Essex, but in this book, in a restaurant in London. The authoress, Syd Moore, writes in the first person of a lady that relunctantly inherited the museum from her grandfather. However, she continues with her partner, the curator of the museum, to get more involved in the mysteries that occur. I very much like the amusing style the writer has. Things are not always as they seem. Even her grandfather’s family has a few strange occurrances, especially when the grandmother disappears leaving two small children with her husband in the middle of a performance she was giving in connection with her powers as a medium. OK, read it yourself, but I can recommend book 1 which I have read, and book 2 which is for me a bit of a page turner.
And now to get ready to prepare for my shopping tour on the road to the supermarket. It is no longer as snowy as it was, it has got warmer, and rain is predicted until Christmas, afterwards overcast, but no snow for the time being. It does not look like a white Christmas here, but more a wet one.
Let’s have fun all the same with our computers and daily life and remember, if you are freezing, somewhere in the world they have a heat wave.
