Halcyon days are those quiet reflective times when you can enjoy the atmosphere and the surroundings and be a peace with the world. Unfortunately today is not the case, when your partner crashes the car into a lamppost and it has to be picked up by a breakdown service because the front is a “total” wreck and the antifreeze has drained from the car. A couple of parked bikes were also included in the damage, but nothing too bad.
Even in my direst moments I took a photo in the restaurant where we were waiting for a taxi to bring us home. At least that was a soothing picture. Tomorrow I will be busy examining the actual damage of the car which is now in our garage and probably make the decision for a new car, which is not actually the halcyon surprise I wanted for Christmas.
Yes, halcyon was not quite the ideal word for today’s prompt.
So why am I sitting quite cool at the computer writing a blog. This seems to be my way of dealing with excitement, and do something completely different.
