Good Evening

A silly stupid day today. This morning it stopped raining at last, although still a nip in the air – actually more a large sized bite, but I was surviving. That is until I awoke from my midday sleep, thinking I could perhaps go to the local store. Not that I needed anything urgent, but just get out. However, that idea was soon destroyed when I looked out of the window. Yes, it was snowing, steady with light flakes, but not inviting for a trip with my scooter. So it was a day at home, with just I, me and myself.

I decided to make the most of the opportunity and iron my bed linen, so now that is done and done with, No. 1 son had a concert planned for the evening, so I did not have to bother with his needs. He arrived home earlier to get ready and then got a telephone to say that the musician performing had cancelled his concert and would only be appearing in June. So what do you do when no cooking was planned? I had my mushrooms on toast in a cream sauce to cook, but my son does not eat mushrooms. With my female intuition I had bacon and eggs in the fridge with tomato, so No. 1 son would not starve.

And the snow is still falling but the builders continued with their construction work on our estate. Very soon the building will be high enough to block out our view of the neighbouring trees, although the top half will still be seen.

It was a very fine snow and not something that decided to cover the ground. For me it was a miserable day and I really had to search for something to do. No chance of a Mr. Swiss visit, although we both have our telephones with the message system. I tend to get a touch of cabin fever when I do not have the choice of going places.

Everything looks quite desolate at the moment. Even the trees have forgotten to grow some leaves. I might even watch the TV this evening for the first time this week. From what I have read on various entries, it seems that the Northern Hemisphere lays under a snow cover today.

  1. I like both your hair length and your T-shirt. I keep my hair just a bit longer than yours so I can pull it back into a ponytail. Joan Miro’s paintings are so colorful and fun.

    • My hair is a result of the Pandemic as I did not bother to go to the hairdresser: too complicated and I am still growing it. The t-shirt was one I borrowed/stole from Mr. Swiss. He never wears it now and it is far too big for him after losing so much weight. I think he bought it in New York on a visit to one of the galleries.

  3. Good Day!
    I noticed how cool it was in the Pacific Northwest, not that it was unusually cold, but that it did not get as warm as it does at home. Although I sort of expected that, I can understand why people like warmer climates.
