FANDANGO’S DOG DAYS OF AUGUST #15

The photo is of our so-called hobby room which is mainly occupied by our excess books and Mr. Swiss drum set. I keep my hobby equipment mainly in the apartment where it is to hand.

Since I have been retired life has become one big hobby, keeping myself busy with this and that. My first hobby became to keep mobile after discovering that I have MS. I am one of the “lucky” ones and it “just” affects my mobility. As the years go past, my walk becomes stranger. My newest hobby is my scooter which is the successor to my electric wheelchair, although I use both according to where I go and what I want to do. It gets me to the store with my walker and I can take part in the buying ceremony like the non MS people.

In connection with this I realised that I must not be isolated, and then we had the corona virus which was doing its best to ensure that I would be isolated. I got myself a freezer chest, began to shop for the future and not just for the next two days. I also got myself a food vacuum sealer to freeze meat and other articles. I began to stock up on basic items of life (let us not forget the toilet roll famine that was threatening all).

I have a laundry room which is ideal for storing food and where my freezer chest is. Apart from the washing machine and the deep freezer, it is beginning to resemble a smaller branch of my supermarket. The initial purchases were costly, but no longer. Now I just stock up once a month on what has been used.

Apart from my love of computer work, I have again began to extend my knowledge of cooking. I decided to pep up my menus for the daily food and have rejoined a Swiss cooking magazine to get some ideas. They also have a super web site. I am even thinking again about baking a cake.

I have no dog days, never had a dog and unfortunately my last cat, Tabby, went to the eternal corn chambers to hunt for the mice a month ago, so there are also no cat days.
