    Good Morning all..

    sunday2.jpeg
    It's Mothering Sunday here, and I've had an email from my daughter who lives overseas. She said she sent something in the post which should have arrived yesterday but it hasn't got here, and it won't today now because it's Sunday and no post.. Maybe I'll get a phone call from her later today .

    It's another grey dreich day....so I don't think I'll be going anywhere... Hubs is buying me a mothers' day gift of Google Home Smart speaker..even though we have the echo dot upstairs in his office , I'd rather have Google Home down here ..

    Have a good Day everyone...

    Good Morning peoples...


    mondays.gif~original.gif

    It's another horrible wet day, will this rain never end? We were supposed to be going out today for lunch, but I'm not sure I can stand going out in this torrential rain tbh...

    Wish spring would hurry up.

    Got cheered up by my 2 late parcels from Amazon arriving this morning..

    Have a Super day everybody...

    Let's see: Yesterday was Mothering Day in the U.K. and today is National Napping Day in the U.S. There should be some sort of correlation and indeed it is nagging at me but for the life of me it refuses to surface. Perhaps mother's who are busy rearing their young need a special day in which to nap rather than the daily thing. Sounds rather legalistic does it not?

    As for me, I shall use the special day as opportunistically as possible by taking a small nap after dinner tonight. But then, I take a small nap Every early evening but yet, National Napping Day will give this afternoon's rest a little more meaning.

    Have a Wonderful Day Ya'll and by all means, take a nap, be at peace and dream good things.......................

    Good evening friends, Lisa worked all day today so I have spent it reading and dozing, plus I made a fish pie which we have just eaten [​IMG] ...................the day started with sunshine but has become dull now, but still relatively warm at 5c....

    The book I am reading "The Brothers Karamazov" surprisingly became a page turner this morning, so I read quite a lot today.....

    I will post a few pics of the art exhibition "Old Lithuania" exhibition of M. Dobuzhinky's paintings, which we went to yesterday, it was in the Museum of Music which we have been to before so we only walked through it..

    The museum grounds...


    [​IMG]



    It consists of many rooms and small cinemas all devoted to music and musical instruments...

    I remember reading that book (The Brothers Karamazov) many years ago. Back when I was a teenager, there was a movie out about that book, starring Yul Brynner. Naturally, after watching the movie, I wanted to read the book. Of course, since the book did not have Yul Brynner in it, it was not nearly as interesting to me as the movie was, and I remember that i muddled it badly, trying to make an oratory book report in front of the class.
    I guess that I need to re-read some of those classical old books again and see what they are saying now that I am not a teenager.

    It is chilly, but sunny here today. I went out to the shed and got some alfalfa pellets to sprinkle around the bushes and plants, and then when we get rain this next weekend, it should wash it all into the ground and feed the plants. I really need to start raking up the line and cedar needles that are all over the front lawn; but it has either been way too wet or too cold (usually both) to even think about yard work this spring.
    So, this morning, I am doing housework, and then will venture outside around noon when it warms up a bit more.

    That's how I was @Yvonne Smith I read Dostoevsky as a teenager and couldn't get on with his books at all, but after Jordan Peterson recently recommended reading his works, I thought I would try again, which I am glad I did...........it brings home to me just how much age changes your outlook [​IMG]

    Good Morning all..


    Happy-Wednesday-Quotes-7.jpg

    It's a dry and mild sunny morning... although quite windy.

    I want to go out this morning.....but I can't leave until the postman has been because I've got to sign for a parcel, and he doesn't usually arrive until 10.30 or 11am.. ..so that doesn't leave me long to get out and about and back again before the roads get chocked up with school traffic..

    We're forecast for more snow this weekend too.. so it's important I get out today

    Hope you all have a decent day..and also get well wishes to @Bill Boggs

    Interesting thing. I called in yesterday to reschedule an appointment with the heart doctor but they were not open at the time I called. I did call a tad early but I got a voice message stating that the office was closed due to weather conditions and if I wished to reschedule I needed to call back January 17th.
    "Let's see", said I. In order to move an appointment I now have for Thursday this week to sometime next week, I have to wait until January 17th of next year in order to do so. Even the late great Stephen Hawking would not be able to mathematically deduce how such an event would be made possible other than theorize something about the space/time continuum.
    A time machine I do not have so I called a little later anyway and informed them of my wishes on the voice mail and also reported the impossibility of their own request. I could indeed wait until January but I would probably be fined the 50 or so beans for a no show.

    I am certainly glad, however, that the cardiac unit secretary is not working in the operating room or today's heart transplant wouldn't be scheduled until December with the heart showing up a week ago even though the person is laying on the operating table and given anesthesia two hours ago.

    Good Morning my friends

    thursday copy.jpeg


    Well we got a whole day without rain yesterday...but we're back to it today, so I'm pleased I got out and about yesterday because we're forecast for more rain tomorrow and snow at the weekend.. isn't it all just too depressing? ..:rolleyes:

    Anyway, I'm fortunate that I have a warm home, good food, and the ability to speak to you all across the world in comfort from that same warm house .. today I'm just thinking of the poor and homeless who don't have these things, and face yet more freezing temps and snow this weekend.. ....

    Hope you all have a good Day today...
