Good Morning

This is how it looks on my side of the world at the moment, sunny a few wafting clouds, but quite cold. Today is a little more settled. Yesterday I was completely thrown out of balance. When I got my confirmation yesterday morning of my week-end shopping on-line list there was an important item missing, meat. I contacted them but can only do that by computer and have to wait for an answer which I did not get. Eventually they called me by telephone (quite an honour) apologising and offering me a very good alternative. This all took time and threw me a little off balance. I am just too old for changes in my daily routine, especially as I am getting less mobile than I was.

This week I did not go anywhere, actually the last two weeks. I was so comfortable at home, but now I have decided to break out tomorrow on Sunday and will probably make a small tour locally of the surroundings including the castle. Taking photos of my feathered friends is OK, but sometimes my camera needs something different. I also intend to go into town on Monday. I have to collect cash to pay my cleaning lady, she does not operate with money transfers and Mr. Swiss needs his cigarettes.

I had quite some entertainment from my blue tit neignbours yesterday, even with a flight demonstration. This one seemed to be floating on air flying from one side to the other and not even using his wings. I think if it were not for the birds life would be quite dull.

Otherwise they were busy eating the food remains that I still have outside. I thought I would have to tidy the garden after the birds were finished, but they are doing it all theirselves. I bought my filled coconut shell during Winter, but they mostly ignored it. Now it is the No. 1 on their hit parade and fights often happen to be the first served.

Yesterday there was nothing really special happening. I do not even see my neighbours very often unless they happen to be tidying their garden outside. Even the TV does not interest me so much at the moment, and I only like to watch films if their subject appeals to me. I am a fan of magical mystery like Harry Potter and the Transformers, the machines that have quite human features. At the moment I have my nose more stuck into books, and am now on the third and currently last book of the Vivian Shaw series of Dr. Greta Helsing novels who is a doctor for supernatural beings such as vampires, mummies and ghouls – yes even they have their medical problems. Imagine being a mummy and losing a finger bone. Of course Greta Helsing is the daughter of the Dr. Van Helsing who was involved in the Dracula story. I know I have a strange taste, but I see enough reality in the present world and like to escape now and again.

And now it is time to move on. I do not have such a cookery session this morning as I have boiled beef and vegetables which simmers nicely on its own for a few hours, filling the kitchen with enticing aromas. I also intend to bake a bread in between. A woman’s work is never done. So I hope I have kept you entertained for a while and now I will entertain myself keeping myself busy. Take care everyone, play safe, keep your distance and the newest discovery of the Brits is to open the windows – let the hairy pins out to die and disperse. Perhaps we will one day be rid of this scourge.

    • I have quite a collection of animals for the garden. They are now all in place and ready for action. At the moment we are watching the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on the TV in between.


  1. You could create an entire series of your birds in flight. I think this is the best of the best that you have captured. They surely do put on a show for you!

  2. Good afternoon the sun is shining with wind gushes. My trip yesterday was very hard for my body. I set for around an hour with my legs down. They lost a lot of movement. Next went shopping and I got a number of spring clothes. The trip was worth the hurt. Like your pictures especially of the blue tips.
    Left out or change in the order is a problem online shopping. I remember days when you almost never got what you order. I may have depended on it. Enjoy your paranormal books. If you like talking cats, you might like Shirley Rousseau Murphy’s Joe Grey series. Joe is involved in helping the police solve mysteries. His mate is Dulice and a library cat. Have a stress-free day and be well.
