I was busy clearing out a wardrobe today. There were some clothes hanging up, but otherwise the shelves were full of objects that do not belong in a wardrobe. Since Mr. Swiss is now in his golden oldie home I am reorganising. I found this water boiler, never been used and even with the certificate from the Danish manufacturer. I decided to try it. I filled it with water and plugged it into the elctricity. Immediately a small blue light arrived to tell me it was working. After a few minutes the water was already boiling.
I already have such a machine, although the one I have has a place for filters to keep the water lime free and this one does not. I do not know how old this is, it has never been used, but perhaps when it was made filters had not yet been invented. It is amazing what you find sometimes.
I have been showing my life in March all through the week, so I decided to see what I was doing a year ago on 1st March and here I am. I was having my first jab for covid and had to go to our local concert hall which had been organised for us all. These two young men were making sure we kept order and after the jab I had to wait 15 minutes before going, to make sure I had no ill effects. I also had to drop my document into the box shown under the red arrow. Yes those were the days and now I have had two jabs and a booster since. The hall is now again a concert hall and if you want a jab you should go to one of the centres in another village.
Morning sun and it stayed all day with some warmth although I remained at home. I had nothing to buy in town, my cupboard, fridge and freezer is full and I decided to get down to a job that I had wanted to do for some time. At last I have cleared a wardrobe that was full of objects that do not belong in a wardrobe. There were various document cases full of documents, so old that I found after ten years they were no longer worth keeping. I also found two cheese fondue rechaud and an electric hot plate. Also many cases full of documents.
I found this, an Apple CD player for my computer. Of course I decided to try it with a video to see if it works. I have almost no idea of these things, but I pushed the disk in the slot after plugging it into my Apple computer and it worked. The film began to play on the computer screen. Now I had the problem, how to stop the film. Somehow I did and removed the player from the computer, still containing the film disc which was the next problem as I no longer have a Mr. Swiss at home for advice. I had a look in Internet and discovered a symbol on my screen for an Apple CD Rom and found an instruction “eject CD”, so did a click and lo and behold the CD was ejected. I am really learning things here.
Then I found this nice looking Danish water boiler. I plugged it in, filled it with water and discovered it was working and I believe never been used seeing its condition. Another discovery although I already have a water cooker, but I am sure I will find someone in the family that can use it. Today seemed to be my second Christmas and then this appeared.
Nothing I could really use, but there were three bags full of drum sticks, Mr. Swiss being a drummer throughout his years. There were also a pair of drum brushes, which I can use. Mr. Swiss showed me once how they work. I still have two sets of drums at home, one set up in our hobby cellar, but I do not think I will try them. I also found many music notes for drummers.
Some people find clothes or books and I find drumsticks and computer parts.
I was so busy with my discoveries I had to leave the birds to their own thing.
And that was my exciting eventful day. Now I have to recover from dragging very heavy plastic garbage bags to the container. Have fun everyone and resist cleaning out cupboards etc.
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
