The remains of the Summer roses with their seed pods.FOTD 6th October 2021: Rose Hips
This is a typical scene in Autumn around our village. The mist comes up from the River and engulfs everything.
Even the garden has its misty moments.
And some create their own mist.RDP Wednesday: Mist
Was not sure if the clouds were coming or going, but now it seems they are going and we are left with sunny blue skies, although quite a nip in the air. I have managed to postpone my travels for today.. I was busy enough yesterday with my blog and yes, a visit to the hairdresser. I am sure you all want to see what she did with me, so here it is: a golden oldie with a new hairstyle.
I could call this the Covid style, as I spent the last year growing my hair to all the same length, and that really took a year. Admittedly I still look the same with my wrinkles, but I did it, thanks to the time of isolation.
This morning I had visits from all the birds, although I now only have the remainders of the bag of nuts no-one wanted to eat. The robin arrived, a lot of sparrows, and even a crow decided to have a peck. Their photos are on my Nikon camera, so I will have to upload them and will only be ready tomorrow. It is now early morning and I should move on with my housework.
Yesterday evening was also quite some stress. I had a wash to complete and afterwards hang up. This morning It was dry and now already folded and dealt with. I also got to the end of my book. It was a Simon Beckett book with David Hunter the pathologist as the main character. It was full of dead people and their murderer, this time a serial killer, but it had a surprising twist at the end. I had dealt with the washing and actually wanted to go to bed, but I just could not put the book down and so I finished it. Naturally I had an almost sleepless night afterwards: too many decomposing bodies I suppose. However Simon Beckett is one of my favourite authors, so will now search for a new book from his various works. They are all connected with dead people. I know I do have a morbid taste now and again.
If I cannot sleep, I always have my iPad next to the bed and so completed my next shopping list for the coming week-end to pass the time and hoped I would eventually fall asleep.
Have a good day everyone. I must now visit the shower and deal with the state of the apartment.
