Good Morning

Back Garden

A very bright sunny morning today, although a fresh wind is blowing. I am still sitting outside on the porch, although this time with a cardigan. Today is cleaning lady day and whilst she is busy polishing my bathroom and shower I am now have a little “me” time with the computer. I have also done my duty and cleaned all the back windows although they were not so dirty. I find doing them regularly once a week needs maximum half an hour and no hard scrubbing involved. Being a golden oldie with nothing that I have to do has its advantages.

I did not go anywhere yesterday. I was thinking about it, but after hugging the bed after lunch I decided again the stress of getting myself ready for a wheelie and stayed at home.

On me last journey on Sunday afternoon I saw a father on our estate with his little boy organising his model aircraft that got tangled in the bushes.

He got it sorted and the plane was released and could fly again. It was ideal weather and I watched for a while father and son having fun.

They are the unforgettable moments in the life of a little boy and I hope he remembers them when he is older. “Remember dad when you helped me to fly my plane”.

Yesterday I uploaded the new programme Mojave on my Apple computer. That is the nice thing about Apple, the new programmes are free to upload. Windows 10 costs me an annual fee to keep it, although before they had that system you had to buy each new programme.

Of course these new programmes are business for the computer companies. I read all about Mojave before I uploaded it, the new developments and goodies that I can have. I can now choose between a darker screen or the same as always. They are the things that annoy me, the new developments which seem to be just an alibi for something new and I really do not need them. You upload the newest development and are confronted with all sorts of questions about do you want this or that etc. etc. I get used to my programme and have no wish to have it all done differently. Might be an age thing, but sometimes improvements are not always improvements.

I was also having problems with WordPress yesterday as it would not accept my likes and I had to go around three corners to make it work. Perhaps it was the new Apple programme, although I do not think so. This morning everything was back to normal again.

My No. 1 son usually goes into town in the afternoon and at the moment is also a regular customer at our town fair. He keeps me informed if there is anything new.  He is autist, and enjoys the Autumn fair. He told me that during the day they also have a few music bands there so I will have a look this afternoon. I am still exploring all the possibilities.

And now to move on and think about cooking lunch. Enjoy the day or sleep well according to where you are in the world.

A few flowers from my garden, so called Rudbeckia Laciniata, the taller relative of the black-eyed Susan flower. The are one of the last to flower in my garden, before it closes down for the Winter.

  1. I love rudbeckias for their long flowering season and their cheerful faces. As of course do the black-eyed Susans….. they are both among my favourites. They bloomed wonderfully in my Swiss homes and in England but in France they are not so well known. Sadly….
    Yes, it seems that after the canicule we go straight into pre-winter modus – from over 30°C down to 18 in no time. Soon it’s the heating put on ON….
