FOWC with Fandango: Ponder

I was just pondering what to write and I saw this happening. The sky was changing, red flashes of light and a terrific noise overhead. This was not on the weather report.

Everything was getting closer, and temperatures were rising. I checked on the news and it was happening everywhere in the world.

And then this enormous object was hovering over our heads.

Well at least I saw something to ponder and now I will watch the rest of the film showing on TV “Independence Day”. I have never seen this one, but I just love science fiction films about invaders to the Earth.

I must say iPhones really make good photos from the TV.

FOWC with Fandango: Ponder

Good Morning

There really was a sort of sunrise this morning, although it began quite grey. Now the skies are clearing, some blue and it looks like a sunny morning. What will happen later, who knows. Yesterday was a rainy day, not too much and I managed to get to the store along the road accompanied with just a few drops of rain here and there.

The road to the store did not look very promising as I set off on my scooter, real end of the world atmosphere. It is quite depressing currently when I see the increase of he covid statistics. I ask when will it all end. Being a golden oldie you look back now and again on life and are glad to have the stress behind you, but you never do. There is always something that crops up unexpectedly.

Life changes, but I try to keep up with the changes. Even normal shopping has become a digital world I have discovered. I suppose we all shop at our preferred stores but being a computerised golden oldie I have slipped into the world of online stores with all their benefits. I have been connected by computer to one store for a few years and have grown into its system, noting the special rebates automatically online and the speial offers . Just because I have grown older I do not give up, you can always learn something. They even invited me to belong to their new experimental group for online purchases, which works very well for me with home deliveries of my preferred items. In the meanwhile I started to explore the other large store in our country (we basically have two large organisations, so everything is well under control). I have also here now become a member and got my little plastic card yesterday, although I do not need it so much as I have it all set up on my iPhone app. Mr. Swiss was getting interested as well as it is one of the stores he visits, and they are also connected to the store where we can buy electronic appliances and accessories. He was delighted to see they actually sent two plastic cards, the second being for usage of a second family member. We are now completely online together. He admires my ability to keep up with these modern developments, but for me it is fun and keeps my brain operational.

Yesterday I was even having cyber moments in the kitchen, not quite perhaps, but is was a combination of modern appliances. While the veg was normaly cooking in the pan, I had the fish frying in my airfryer (on the right)

and the potatoes were cooking in my microwave. What a great combination for me. I notice by using these appliances I do have less cleaning work and the kitchen does not smell like a restaurant when we eat. All I need now is a cook to do it all for me.

Today is Saturday, so no big tasks to deal with, just those that I want to do. If the weather stays rainless, which I think it will, I will pop into town this afternoon, but more a pleasure trip than combined with shopping tasks, although I will have a look around.

Have a good week-end everyone and try to ignore the less pleasant events, although I know it can be quite difficult sometimes.
