Good Morning

My view from the kitchen window looks quite clear and bright, but when I opened the window to take a photo, I was met by a freezing cold wind and our temps are really down into minus at the moment. However, with snow predicted for the next couple of days it will get a little warmer. One way or the other I will not be going anywhere. I let the nice guys from the store bring my goods in their warm cabins in the truck. There are plenty of delivery slots to cope with my needs.

I dropped one of those glass pan lids a few days ago. It naturally broke in many pieces, some large and others very small. With help from No. 1 son we had it tidied up in a few minutes, but now I am without one of my favourite lids. No problem, I had bought it in the store some years ago and even that is on the delivery list. I have now ordered a new one which I should get at the end of the week. Life is really becoming different and I am so glad for the possibility of not having to go anywhere to get what I need. I have also ordered a cookery book with bread recipes and a suitable container for baking the bread, so what could possibly go wrong. Yesterday evening while a boring TV programme was running, I almost completed my next list for online deliveries for the weekend cooking adventures.

My photos were few yesterday, but even the birds are not really enjoying the cold weather. They appear for a few minutes for their food supplies and disappear again. This sparrow decided to have a warm up session by having a wing flap.

My cleaning lady has just finished her weekly help, so now I have a nice clean bathroom and shower again. She is such a good help and we are lucky to have found her.

I was just thinking there is nothing more to say and then I had a visitor.

Look who just arrived, but he was a little distracted by the sparrows which had flown off when he appeared – typical cat.

So I wish you all a good day, take care and communicate by phone, computer or just keep a safe distance from everyone. Isolation used to be a punishment, now it is a way of life.

  2. Sounds like you’re going to have a cozy and enjoyable cooking session! It’s really good to be able to have things delivered to us these days, isn’t it! I also enjoy using that option more and more. Have fun! 🙂

    • At the moment we are sinking in snow and it does not bother me. I don’t have to go anywhere and have everything I need. I had a great cooking adventure this morning making my own spatzle which was a success. I had never done it before.


  3. Good Morning!
    I will be inside as well. It is my ‘writing day’ when I write the gardening articles for the various newspapers. I do enjoy seeing the crew come and go, and sometimes open the door so that Rhody can go out to be certain that all is in order with them, but it would be more fun to be going out with them.

    • Things that used to be a matter of course, have now become very special. I am sure you miss the days with your crew. At the moment we are a little snowed in. It has not stopped for the last four hours and everything is covered. It is times like these when I am glad to be inside with everything I need.

  4. Good afternoon, I am actually writing. It is currently in the morning with rain. It is supposed to rain through to tomorrow. The temperatures raining in the higher elevations causing some flooding in some of the lower areas. With Kathy’s help order a wheelchair that will more mobility. Your photos are lovely, especially the last one. A good helper is a treasure. We have had so many and everyone has different ideas I think I don’t feel that will be back to normal let’s hope it will better. Enjoy the rest of the day and be safe.

    • Since midday it has snowed constantly and the garden is now completely white. I am glad I don’t have to go anywhere. Had a relaxing afternoon. The birds invaded my garden for food this afternoon so I could take a few photos
