And another misty morning today, although again I think the sun is slowly poking through. Since I took this photo I have been busy doing this and that and a little more than an hour has passed since I eventually can sit at the computer and enjoy breakfast and my daily blog.
I was rewarded with a photo of my local magpie. It arrives daily but is always to quick for my camera, but this morning I managed to catch him as it was preparing to fly off with a peanut in its beak.
I also now have a few hazelnuts for the birds, but that is more due to an accident when making a cake yesterday. I had the time when I got home from my shopping trip and decided to make a so called Tiroler cake which included hazelnuts and chocolate. I never got to the chocolate part. It is one of those cakes where you have to separate the egg yoke from the white and beat the white to a nice froth. Unfortunately my second egg yolk broke and so I gave up. My cake became an Angloswiss invention and I really had to use my gift of invention. Eventually it became a fruit cake with the bits and pieces I had left from the last fruit cake I made. Anyhow you can eat it, but I was a little distrubed with my failure to say the least.
I did manage a shopping trip yesterday and was rewarded by freshly baked bread at the store. Since I now have a slightly different routine, life seems to be more rewarding. I get into town almost daily and no longer have to organise so much. I only had to get a few provisions yesterday and can really relax.
I noticed one of the first Christmas decorations outside the restaurant next to the store. Now only about six weeks so I suppose there will be more and more symbols of the festive days arriving.
Apart from my cake tragedy yesterday, nothing more really to report. TV was showing another Schwarzenegger film yesterday, The Terminator Genysis was showing. Nothing better than seeing a naked Schwarzenegger arriving in America by time machine. Apparently they all have to be naked to travel by time machines. Anyhow apart from falling asleep in the last quarter if an hour of the film I did manage most of it, but was not so impressed.
Today nothing great planned, perhaps a trip to the local castle this afternoon and a visit to the local chickens.
I am now off to begin cooking lunch. It will be a roast of veal today with some veg and noodles, so no great cooking stress. Once in the oven it cooks itself.
Have a good day, enjoy the Sunday. My sparrow colleagues are already enjoying with their breakfast.
