FOWC with Fandango: Adventure

Solothurn cemetery 12.12 (1)

Life is one big adventure, we do not really know where we came from or where we are going to, so let’s make the most of it whilst we are here.

A bit dismal? Well that’s life. Every morning when I awake a new adventure begins.  Just the walk to the kitchen is exciting. Will I be able to get out of my bed, will my legs carry me and be careful when you stumble on to the breakfast table. You might slice off a finger whilst cutting the bread, or scald yourself with hot tea when preparing it.

Eventually you do the housework and the next adventurous experiences arrive. Perhaps you might have a short circuit on the vacuum cleaner and the electric shock is already programmed. Not to mention the computer, no it will not explode, but perhaps during the night when you were sleeping, a virus developed or you might even have an attack from trojans. Perhaps someone cracked the code to your online banking and emptied your bank account.

But life goes on and you go to the supermarket for a shopping experience, as long as you do not have a car accident on the way. You enter the store and find that that they are sold out of your favourite biscuits with the cream filling and must do with those with the jam filling. Not the same, but life has its twists and turns, all part of the adventure.

Perhaps you might burn the dinner when cooking because the postman, who always rings twice, kept you waiting at the door to sign a document for an important delivery. This is no problem, you can always make a sandwich if you have enough bread.

Yes life is full of surprises. And you decide to take a walk in the afternoon, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. After half an hour the sun disappears, rain clouds are gathering, there is lightening and thunder and you are only dressed in a light summer dress. You arrive home soaked and cold and half an hour later you realise you are shivering and your nose is running. You spend the evening in bed trying to keep warm and use a complete box of paper hankerchiefs because you are continuously sneezing.

That evening when you are trying to sleep, despite the headache caused by your cold, you realise that it is not really so bad. The day was one adventure, and full of highlights.

FOWC with Fandango: Adventure

  1. We too have had an adventurous day. A call from the doctor reminding me of an appointment a week from today … pretty much guaranteeing I’ll have forgotten it by then. Then, a call from the oil delivery guy to lock up the dogs. At least we were out of bed by then. Usually I’m sound asleep when they call. A call to my son, home from the hospital, asking if by any chance he wants the key lime pie I still have, unopened, in the fridge (no, he doesn’t). A note from Garry to his friends to find out if anyone has a good used tripod (I looked at the prices and almost fainted).

    Yes, it’s another cold, rainy day in the valley. The kind of “in your bones and up your spine” day that makes you wish for a two-day chemical coma and maybe you’ll feel better after that.

    Life is SO exciting.

    But the birds are out in force. I hope they don’t know something I don’t know!

    • This morning was pure stress. Everything went well with the shopping and new car, no problem, but it takes time. No. 1 son was on a visit to Baden for the day and when I got home I had to heave four heavy bags full of shopping into the apartment from the garage, so I had to go twice because it was too much for me. When I eventually got home and changed my clothes into something more workday I had a complete apartment to clean because I had no time before I went shopping. Then I cooked lunch and after lunch I could at last have an hour hugging the bed until 3.30 p.m. Now I am having me time on the computer with a few blogs and when I am finished I have the bed linen to iron for two kingsized beds, the duvet and cushion covers and then I might just be able to watch the TV or read a book.
      I have a very good tripod, but I never really use it. I find for spur of the moment photos it takes to long.
      And I have never had a Key Lime Pie in my life, so send it over. Today was a cold day, but no rain and it might have been worth a wheelie, but I had no time.
      I filled the birdhouse with seed this afternoon, so they won’t starve.
      I sometimes wonder how I do it all, but perhaps I need a target in my life.
