This is all we had this morning early from the sun. It was actually making an effort and perhaps we will be lucky today and it will appear. Otherwise yesterday was the same as ever, rain all day and even two hailstorms.
I was sitting in the kitchen with my computer and suddenly it sounded like the deluge had arrived outside. We had it all, together with hailstones and sheet rain. One of the results was our drainage at the front entrance which was overflowing with water. Needless to say I was very glad yesterday that I was not going anywhere, although I had to go with No. 1 son to the metal and glass recycling depot after lunch. I should have gone some time ago, but due to circumstances it was not possible. I have two bags in the garden cupboard where we put the unwanted material and they were both overflowing.
No. 1 son and I got ready and made our way. It is not very far, but unwanted journey. It is very well organised and you have a container for everything. I sit in the car and son takes the bags and empties them into the containers. We are finished within five minutes. Luckily we were the only crazy people performing this action at Saturday lunchtime so had the two parking spaces to myself. You can drive quite close up which makes it easier to dispose of the unwanted material. We also had a pause in the rain whilst we were in action thank goodness.
I was glad to be back home again and continue my usual after lunch routine of having a midday sleep.
The sparrows also decided to put in an appearance yesterday in front of the window as I was working on my computer which I was quite pleased about. It seemed I was only taking photos of sparrows and tits every day at the beginning of the year and when it was time to stop feeding them, they all disappeared. However now and again a stray bird arrives to see if there is anything on offer.
Otherwise nothing very much exciting.
The neighbour’s cat turned up and was observing our apartment from the outside window hoping to gain entrance and looking if I had anything edible for him. He gave up and went on his way.
I made vol au vent for the evening meal. I bought the ready made pastry cases, and just had to make a suitable filling, which in my case was chopped veal with mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce. It is quickly made, does not need a long time to cook, veal is a quick cooking meat, and everyone was happy.
I actually wanted to upload a book on my Kindle to read, but noticed that my Kindle was almost completely down so had to hang it onto the power.
What an exciting day I had. We all seem to be isolating in our own little corners at the moment. Today is Sunday and probably will not be very much different.
And now to move on to my day full of excitement, like cooking lunch and making order in the apartment. Keep safe everyone, with our without mask. I might wear mine tomorrow for the first time in public at the store. Do we call that shopping incognito?
