It is a misty morning again, so it can only get better I hope. At least it is not raining (or snowing) yet. I am busy organising my Winter life at the moment. Up to now no problem. The cold does not bother me too much, I seem to have developed my own built-in central heating system. Mr. Covid-Corona is a sort of barometer at the moment. Cases are decreasing a little, although 4-5000 daily is not a small amount, but for a while it was up to 9,000. The powers that be are warning us not to get too optimistic about it, but the queue for online orders at the local grocery chain is no longer so drastic and if I order today I have a good chance to get the goods tomorrow,, although Friday will do nicely. I am planning a week-end shopping action online for this week. It would mean that I would not be dependent on a shopping trip and could just go as it pleases me. This time I will ordering fresh meat and chicken, not so much, but it will be a new thing for me.
At the moment I am dependent on my flying friends for some photos, as when I visit the local store along the road, the photographic choice is not so good.
I found this house on the way with its interesting mosaic tile pattern. Even nature was intervening and a tree seemed to be taking over part of the building.
I even got a view of one of the monastery churches from the entrance to the store which was reflecting the sunlight.
Otherwise the sparrows have again discovered my bird house, although they are very sensistive when they notice that I am hovering with the camera. One slight movement and they are off.
I must say online life is wonderful. No more walking around in the stores hoping to find what you want. I really need new fitted sheets for the bed, Dear Tabby, our last cat, loved to sharpen her claws on them now and again and as they are jersey, and good quality jersey, they suffered from the threads she pulled. I have now got around to having a look in internet and found exactly what I wanted, the same as I already had, so they will be ordered today. I will definitely throw the others away. We no longer have a cat, so I can take risk, although I do miss Tabby and so does Mr. Swiss. We still have visions of her laying in her favourite places.
Today is a busy day for No. 1 son and me. It is again collection day for newspapers and cardboard tomorrow and we have to have it ready at the roadside to be collected. He has already bundled it all together and will be shifting it out this afternoon. Tomorrow will also be collection day for the garden garbage and we have a large bin full of the remains of the summer to put out. I will help him as much as possible, but he has to do the heavy work. He told me yesterday about the lovely red sunsets in town in the late afternoon. Not that he is a nature boy, and he explained it in his autistic way. He has a mobile phone so I told him the next time he sees one to take a photo and send it to me. He said OK, and when an autist says OK it will be done. I am wondering how the photos will be.
And now to move on as I have a full programme this morning and no time for computers, although I will be trying to place my online order for groceries.
Have a good one, may the weather be with you.
