Good Morning

Looks a bit stormy this morning, but no rain and not too cold. I think slowly we can look forward to some early Spring weather. I noticed that my little garden is looking a little overgrown in places. I sent No. 1 son out to cut down some bare stalks left from last year. This morning I also did some chopping practice. It is not yet looking perfect, but an improvement. It will soon be time to call the gardiner to put the finishing touches and then I can again spend my time more outside than inside. Sometimes I really wish I could be more active as it used to be, but with age come problems, so you just have to get used to it.

Someone attached this to the tree opporsitie and it has got quite popular amongst the birds that like to hang around.

Yesterday I was feeling quite exhausted after putting new linen on the beds, but I survived I went for a midday sleep as always and forgot to set an alarm, meaning I slept the first half of the afternoon although I did not miss very much.

At the moment I am on the search for some new house shoes. The ones I have are almost a museum piece, barely in one piece. It is difficult when you no longer can actually go to a store and choose what you want, but stores are closed due to lockdown and with Sketchers shoes, which I very much like, I know my size and fit. They have never disappointed up to now.

I am really a succour for new kitchen gear and I spotted this new version in my cookery group online. I already had one, but it was years ago. This is the new version with glass instead of a plastic holder and much improved. It is ideal for making mayyonaise and beating eggwhite. There is also an egg separater integrated. Anything to save time and I so like to make things myself.

And now I should move on. No bread baking to do, but a little more ironing from the bed linen. I was a little later hugging the bed yesterday but I got caught up with the film “Valkyrie” starring Tom Cruise. He played the part of the German officer Stauffenberg that was in the group planning to assassinate Hitler in the war. The attempt failed and he was executed along with the others involved. I had seen the German film a few years ago. It just did not seem so realistic with Tom Cruise and everyone speaking with their American accents. It also seemed to me to be a little Hollywood styled.

As you can see there is not very much excitement in my part of the world so I will move on to some more inspiration in my appartment. I managed to break a small glass bowl yesterday when emptying the dishwasher. I managed to sweep the remains together before retiring but still found a few memories on the floor this morning. Glass can be so annoying when it breaks into its thousand pieces.

Have a good day, may the sun shine in your corner of the world. It has just appeared here so it may not be such a bad day after all.

  1. Good Day.
    It is amusing that the American accent compromises the credibility of a movie. Seemingly all of the spokesmen for German car commercials speak with English accents. It seems like the English would be more qualified to sell British cars, although British cars need no commercials. Also, it seems that if German cars were as excellent as they are supposed to be, Germans should be more eager to talk about them.

    • The Amercan accent embodies the film world for me growing up in London. We were influenced by the amercan films
      I just saw a programme on the English TV about the redwood forests in California showing the tallest tree and how protective the redwoods are of their Territory scattering parts from the tree over the ground preventing seeds from other trees growing. The redwoods are very impressive

      • Actually, many species try to inhibit the proliferation of others species, and many happen to live near here. All of the pines here do it, and the Monterey pine is the most efficient with it. Monterey cypress does it also. Redwoods produce huge volumes of debris that must be removed from landscaped areas below. My colleagues in other regions do not comprehend how much debris we must contend with here, especially since plants in desert regions produce almost no debris that needs to be removed. I wish I had pictures of the redwoods at my former home.
