Good Morning

Not bad, despite a rainy night. Now the rain has gone although the forecast is a rainy day, but forecasts are not always correct. There is snow predicted even in lower areas for tomorrow, although that does not mean everywhere according to my past experience. Anyhow I decided to be prepared and have organised everything. Now that online deliveries are back to normal I have organised one for tomorrow. Otherwise I have been making trips to the stores now and again to see me through the week-end. Today I am just going on a little luxury tour for a few bits and pieces, but nothing absolutely necessary or a matter of starvation and tomorrow I can please myself. As I have no ski attachments to my scooter or wheelchair I am not prepared for the worst and I am certain, according to Murphy’s law, that tomorrow will be a perfect day.

And just look at this. My austistic No. 1 son was it town yesterday and remembered my request for one of the super sunsets. I am never out late enough to see them. He took this around 5.30 pm before returning home with his phone camera: a view down the local river towards West. What could be better. I knew I could rely on him to do it for his mum. I told him he could take a few photos now and again, hoping his interest as a photographer was now awakened, but I can hope. This photo really surpassed my expectations.

I had a try myself before he got home, from my patio, but I could not capture it so well, although I could see the faint red glow in the distance and managed to capture the moon.

Otherwise we were all busy in our estate yesterday making sure that everything was ready for the paper and cardboard collection. My No. 1 son again to the rescue and he had put our contribution outside. We have to stack the cardboard together and bind the newspapers with string. This time it was also combined with the garden remains. The collections take place today and then it will be over for a month, so we can begin collecting again. By the way this was not illuminated by electric lighting, but the sun was shining strongly yesterday. I was quite blinded by it on my way to town on the scooter.

The sun also illuminated the front of our cathedral.

I met one of the guys belonging to the organisation that sometimes picks up my shopping at the store and brings it home for me. He had noticed that I was no longer organising the pickups. I told him I could now manage it quite well myself, but if necessary would call on them again. It is really going well at the moment and I am again enjoying my after dinner sleep which really makes a big difference to how I feel.

My little sparrows are getting quite adventurous in their foraging expeditions and have now began to peck around in the Autumn leaves, although you cannot see them so well as their colours mix into the background.

And now I should begin to mix into the background with my various cleaning instruments to organise my household and begin to cook something for lunch, but I have enough time.

Keep safe everyone, Mr. Corona is still around, although he is dwindling just a little here, but who knows. Apparently the new vaccine also works well on the golden oldies, so I suppose that will be one of my visits to the doc next year. Mr. Trump is also still around trying his best to convince everyone that the American state has done him wrong with the election results. He has become a standing joke and only those that walk around with guns and are still having delusions that he will win after a vote recount still believe in the impossible.

    • I am wondering if he will bring something home this evening, although nothing special happening at the moment. Very cold and windy now, although we had some sun this afternoon.


  1. Your son’s photo is beautiful! Tell him he has a lot of fans now and we want more! 😀 Trump…he is ridiculous. Joe Biden is staying calm but he has to be frustrated that absolutely nothing is getting done by Trump, except for those nonsensical tweets of his.

    • We saw a film of a juornalist where he said that the Tweets from Mr. Orange should be stopped and the station closed. That would be the best idea. I told my son, but I am not sure if he really knows what a blog is. Just something that mum does in between.

  2. Good afternoon, last a strong thunderstorm passed through the area. The cloud formation was awesome, every shade of grey from black to white and even the sun at times. This morning the clouds are back. Our local’s news headlines are a couple of fires. Trump may look like a clown but his actions hide what he is doing to undermine our nation. Have a pleasant rest of the day and stay safe.

    • Trump is a clown, but a dangerous one. He still has his finger on the button if he is in the mood to play with fireworks. The sooner he goes the better. You seem to be having quite a few thunderstorms lately. We are now waiting for the first snowfalls.

  3. The latitude makes for some strange day length there. I know it is not at all strange for those who are accustomed to it. I just do not expect it to be getting so dark by 5:30. You know, the days are actually slightly longer in summer! Your latitude is close to that of Olympia in Washington. Mine is comparable to Southern Spain and Sicily.
