Last night, the moon was unusually beautiful. A big, yellow crescent … it moved rather quickly across the sky. When it was getting close to the horizon, it looked so lovely so I couldn’t hold myself back — had to drag out the tripod and get out on the balcony. There was more wind than I expected and with that l o n g exposure, it just didn’t work out. None of my moon shots came out sharp. So here is a general night shot of the neighbourhood instead.
We went out yesterday, in the lovely, almost Spring-like, weather. The snow has melted away so fast in the rain, so it’s almost unbelievable. Most streets are bare … all the terrible potholes are out in full swing. I saw many patches of brown grass and even smelled mud here and there.
Went to the library and picked up a new book. «Away» by Jane Urquhart. Started to read it last night. Read about thirty pages. I honestly don’t know what to say at this stage. I’ll read more today and make up my mind. So far …. not my thing.
One of the main reasons we went out at all, was that I needed to go to the grocery store. I had no bread, no green apples and most importantly: no coffee! Would you believe it … I came back without coffee!!! What’s wrong with me?! Was unloading the grocery bags in the kitchen when it struck me. No coffee!
Had to get dressed again and walked down to Sobeys … the nearby store. No big deal now … as I said … streets are bare. No risk of breaking legs or wrists like before.
As this wasn’t enough, I washed out the coffee pot more thoroughly than usual, and then it broke. Well, not the actual glass pot, but the plastic handle loosened from the pot so now I have to use oven mitts when I pour the coffee. Perhaps all this was a sign?! A sign, that I should have given up coffee together with Facebook?! LOL Nah … that’s not going to happen. Maybe there will be more than one blog a day now, when I don’t hang around gazing at all the pointlessness in Fb.
Off to the laundry now!
