Good Morning

Looks like a sunny day, although still not so warm. At least the sun is rising and a blue sky is slowly appearing.I will be at home today. I really have no interest in going anywhere at the moment. I spent some time organising my week-end shopping list yesterday. I must say this online shopping is really a great solution for me, not having to go to the stores My mobility is no longer what it was and I have now very much got used to how to do it. When I gave up the car I was a little worried about how it would work in winter in the cold and snow, but then the online organisation for my supermarket arrived and it works perfectly for my fresh groceries. I just like to have fresh vegetables for the meals. My supermarket does not deliver frozen goods as their vans are not equipped to carry them, but that is no great problem. Now and again I go to town and stock up on what I need. Yesterday when I was planning the food I was not sure what meat to order. I had a look in my deep freezer and discovered I had plenty of what I needed. I also get all the special offers with my online selection.

My sparrows decided to do a flight demonstration yesterday. This one was preparing to land.

And this one was poised in the air waiting for a space to .land.

I checked on my appointment for my second vaccine jab yesterday. I had postponed my original appointment as it was 10.00 a.m. and for me that is almost impossible. It would have meant a very early rise in the morning and a stress to get there. I got a new appointment, but actually got two, on the same day (30.03.2021). When I called I was told my appointment was still for 10.00 a.m. but afterwards the telephone connection told me that I could ignore that as they do not always adjust the appointments as they should. It is now 3.30 p.m. which suits me much better on the same day. A neighbour will be taking me and picking me afterwards. I am not sure how I will react afterwards and it seems the second jab can have a few after effects, although generally they only arrive a few hours later, but it is all so uncertain. I will be glad when I have it all behind me. It will be in the Easter week, which also does not really suit me, although holidays are no great problem now. It used to be a stress to get everything for the long week-end, but my new life of isolation has taught me a lot. I can organise the food from home without having to join in the tumult and stress in the store. Easter was always the worst holiday time especially on the Saturday in between as the stores are closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Monday. One positive point is that I no longer have to fill up the food with chocolate bunnies and eggs, although I might get a couple online. I used to colour eggs with the kids when they were still kids, but I can buy them already coloured, so that stress is no longer. I already some small chocolate eggs on my platter in the living room.

And look who arrived yesterday, sitting in front of the window with pleading eyes for some cat goodies. Of course I gave her some. I also noticed that the human she owns had given her a nice colourful collar with a pendant containing her name and address. I remember them from my three cats. They all had one as it is safer if they would get lost (or worst). Some cats have chips from the vet, but I never bothered.

And now to move on. I have the normal routine, plus making a bread dough for this evening’s bread. Hope your day goes well, with no problems, although we never know what is around the corner. Keep safe.
