Good Morning

And another snowy morning. Some time in the night I woke for a visit to a certain place, where most of us golden oldies go and took a look out of the window and yes, it was snowing: large flakes were falling and this here is the result. Actually it is not so bad as we have 1°C meaning that it is already thawing a little. I am not sure if it will thaw to have a chance to go shopping this afternoon. Today I have a delivery from my store which will take me through until Monday apart from what I already have in the freezer.

Yesterday afternoon I was lucky as our snow had almost completely melted and I could get to the local store (it is just along the main road in the distance on the left – a 5-10 minute trip on my scooter. I had two bags full when finished but I met a married couple in the store, also getting their supplies who are my neighbours, just a door away. In the meanwhile whilst I was in the store it had began to rain. My neighbour was there with his car and offered to take my shopping in his car which was great. I then only had to drive off home afterwards and I met them both again in our underground garage where they were unpacking all the shopping. I was so glad for their help and now all I had to do was to transport my shopping up to the apartment. Eventually we all helped each other with opening doors. We have been living side by side for more than 20 years and we had a discussion about coping in the bad weather. Like me, she also has a deep freezer in the cellar with accompanying machine to vacuum the goods to freeze. Yes, life gets a little different when you are a golden oldie, they are both golden oldies as we are.

It looks like next week will be a cold and snowy one so yesterday I began to plan next weeks survival rations. Practice makes perfect and thanks to my store in the cellar I should be decked for all I need. I am still working on it and will programme the delivery for next Monday.

I was not intending to write anything this morning as I am a little later, so I am now off. Have a good day, keep safe and all that jazz.

Mr. Robin paid us a visit yesterday.

Mr. Magpie was also here and managed to find a peanut.

    • I think the magpie had managed to get a peanut in his beak. It snowed last night but today was not to bad, no snow and even what we had melted a little. I clean regularly every day, gives me less to do. Hardly seems possible that in two days it will be 2021

  2. Right now, most of the U.S. is getting heaps and piles of snow, but we will probably get heaps and pools of rain. We have this weird warm/cold/warm/cold thing going on, so it’s bitterly cold at night, but warms up by 40 degrees by middle of the day, then chills all the way down at night. I just keep feeding the birds and wondering when I’ll feel it’s safe to go out into the world again. Good think I like my house because there isn’t anywhere else to be!

    • We get some snow during t he night but it melts during the day. Sometimes I am snowbound and my son gets a few things from the store, otherwise I can manage to go places with my scooter. I am getting a large delivery on Monday as I believe next week will be colder and I will probably not be going places, I am gradually getting used to my new way of life

  3. I am late again today, Kathy and I went to my bank and got milkshakes for the weekend. Kathy than went for groceries and she said the store was crowed. It was a good think I didn’t go. As this golden odie doesn’t have much strength. Have pleasant day tomorrow.

    • Crowds are not allowed here. Everything is closed in town with the exception of food shops. It seems to be paying off as our Covid cases are a little less, but life is so much different.
