Good Evening

And another sunny and hot day arrives, although I find it quite pleasant. Dressed in my shorts and summer t-shirt I drive off on my scooter with a breeze in my hair from the wind. This morning I was off again to a market. It seems that my days are filled with markets at the moment, but it was our monthly market. This time less fruit and vegetable but more objects that you have in daily use.

Although I just like to look and rarely buy. Here there is a selection of various tea sorts, flavours and some special ointments for this and that.

If you wanted something new to wear there was plenty of choice. Some of the garments were inviting, but it is difficult to have a look when you are travelling on a scooter amongst the crowds. I met a lady who was also not so mobile, with her walker. She told me of a lady that said she would better stay at home with her walker and not be a hindrance to those that have no mobility problems. The lady told me she replied by telling the other lady she was an idiot. I notice when I am on my way in such events, that others who also have a scooter or walker always say hello or give you a smile. We have something in common and I find that a nice gesture.

There was a good section of shoes on the market, but when you do not walk so much, one pair, perhaps two are enough for me.

Perhaps you might need a doll for the grandchildren or children. There was plenty to choose from – and the doll on the right is not a doll but a living person in charge of the sale – just saying.

There was also an inviting restaurant on the street, although people were not so interested it seems.

Being a cat person, these two cats really interested me as well as the smaller kitties on display. I just had to take their photo. They would look so good in the right place.

Eventually I decided enough was enough and I wanted to call in at the local store for a replenishment of my ice cream. This particular store is nearer to where I live, but for the past three months the parking places were being renewed and it would have been impossible for me to shop there. The work is now finished and I can again normally park outside and do my shopping inside with no problem. It is so handy to just pop along the road and buy your immediate needs. Otherwise I have a delivery tomorrow morning from the local supermarket.

Tomorrow is a normal day with no special excursions to anywhere and my cleaning lady is on holiday so I can relax for the day. I hope you can also relax and take it easy. I am now off to a reading session for the evening. I leave you with a view of one of our streets from today. Most of the people where in the central town so the side streets were empty.
