Sedum from my garden, with a local visitor
Sedum from my garden, with a local visitor
No more trolleys, no more queues
Keep your parking spaces that I will not use
Gone are the days of filling up my cart
I can do my shopping just to please my heart
Switch on the computer and go to your site
Order what you need, it will be a pure delight
They will bring it to your door on the next day
It is all customer service, you just have to pay
And I can sit a home and wait for it to happen
Oh what a wonderful thing, I will be clapping
But where will I go if, I stay at home
I will become a hermit and will have no need to roam
Sitting indoors all day and staring at the wall
Is not the essence of life, I might begin to bawl
So trolleys here I come, there will be no neglect
When I am old and fragile, my needs can be decked.
We are fugacious and do not hang around
We don’t know where we are going
when we are eventually in our mound
Make the most of what you have
Even if it’s nil
Use the money you have saved
Don’t collect it for your will
Feet are everywhere, even on the scaffolding opposite my window
Some feet can be very useful
Santa seems to have now dressed in civil clothes and is proabably now on his way home to recover from the exhaustions of the Christmas.
I thought we might get a repeat performance of the sunrise this morning, but just clouds. At least we have clouds and not a grey lid over our heads. It is also very cold, below 0°C, but I will survive. I have to wear my long padded coat when I go outside to feed the birds.
I was taking a few photos of the birds yesterday and when I uploaded them I found this shot. It was hopping around with the sparrows and so I was sure it was a sparrow. However, at a closer look he looks a bit more dressed up with his black and white feathers and a slightly more colourful tummy. It also has a bluish tinge to the head.
The tits have also returned. They made themselves scarce over the Christmas Holidays. There was probably too much rain.
Otherwise I seem to spend my days in the same old routine of housewife chores, keeping the apartment dust free, I got post from the local authorities just after Christmas informing me that the form I completed with details of my cleaning lady wages had been accepted and they will be deducting a certain amount from my account annually as a contribution to her state pension. It is not a fortune and affordable, but I noticed they waste no time in doing it. You cannot avoid the law, although it will probably be deductible from my income tax.
In a few days it will be 2020 and another decade comes to an end. I remember in my younger days when I would now and again cast a thought of reaching the next century and now 20 years have already passed and we are now qualified golden oldies, but we carry on regardless. I notice my walking abilities are not getting any better and I am really considering purchase of a wheelchair for car transport later this year. I still manage the shopping but I often have too much to carry and organise. I am now also considering home delivery from our supermarket chain. I could order the bulk once a week and get the rest myself in the supermarket, meaning I would not have so much to get and my walker would be sufficient to bring the rest home. I do not really want to order my meat and veg online, but just the standard goods that a household always needs. I do not want to be home bound completely and still like to make my excursions.
And now to continue with the day. Yesterday I was thinking of a photo trip but cancelled it due to laziness to be quite honest. Today it might happen, I am thinking about it.
And time to move on, so have a good Sunday and take it easy.
