Hace frío y no se que pensar. Llueve. Te llamo por teléfono. Tú me recuerdas a todos esos momentos de soledad en los que se necesita estar con alguien. Esos ratos que la vida te llena de melancolía y sin razón te hacen estar tristes. Esos preciosos momentos en los que la compañía de uno mismo es mas grata que la de un Dios; y … Continue reading Buscando a Calíope
Life is nothing but a journey. A journey filled with wonders and mystery and love, but also filled with deceit and treachery and pain. The journey is yours to make, but you don’t have to walk alone. Some people walk with you for many years and some only accompany you for a brief period. Continue reading My Dear MAGA friend….
No. I don’t have any of those. That was just a catchy title because I couldn’t think of anything else to write.
But, as I’d imagine Jack The Ripper would say, “let’s go part by part”. (This is way funnier in Spanish, i.e “vayamos por partes”).
First of all, you would all have noticed that I missed the last 2 days of my kindness challenge. I didn’t miss it. I did do my duties and did my challenge all the way to the end.
Today’s good deed wasn’t anything special. I gave my leftovers to the neighbours. When I say neighbours, you have to remember this is a very small town. We have a very small supermarket, an off-licence, a post office, a hair dresser and two “bars”. That’s all there is to the town. So when I say neighbours, it could be any one of them. It’s a tight, family-like close community. Continue reading Day 25: Kindness challenge
Today, as an act of kindness, husband and I did some deep-cleaning house so we get to start the year with a measure of order in our loves. We also bought some food, some of which is currently marinating to go in the oven tomorrow. Continue reading Day 23: Kindness challenge
I had 4 hours sleep last night and I am exhausted, but plowing on.
We had some friends over for lunch and coffee, which was nice. We made some barbecue ribs in the oven, mash potato and salad. Believe it or not, husband is also an excellent cook.
We have a major windstorm all day. Still goin on. It is so bad it is unsafe to even drive. So husband and I stayed home. It’s been going on for hours. For a little while the town’s electrics went off. On the plus side we are having a very warm winter. It’s about 11 degrees celsius. Which, to be honest, I am not complaining. This time last year we were hitting a solid -15 to -20C. Continue reading Day 20: Kindness challenge
Today has been a good and a quiet day. I ended up going to bed at 4.30 in the mornings. The circus with the impeachment articles only ended at 3am (here on my end), and then I spent some time in bed checking my phone for people’s reactions. Continue reading Day 19: Kindness challenge
Today I wasn’t able to do much in terms of kindness except spend all day looking after my husband.
He is actually in a lot of pain. I ran him a hot bath this morning, which made it better for a while. He was able to sit for about 30 minutes on his PC, but after that had to move to bed. I keep checking on him every few minutes. Putting cream, bringing him food and painkillers. We even tried ice for a while but nothing seems to work.
He barely slept last night, but today managed to finally sneak in a couple of hours. Not much, but better than nothing.
Today has been a very weird day. Earlier this morning I went to a council meeting. To tell you the truth, I barely understood anything that was a said, and I only got the gist of it all because husband explained it all before hand. Continue reading Day 17: Kindness challenge
My good deed today goes towards the people on the internet. I have been working hard on updating my “Resources” pages. The one I am almost done with is the “Science and health page”, though still not finished. The “English resources” page is also nearly finished. I have all the resources up, but I will be writing small description of the contents. I have also updated my “STEM reading” and “Independent reading”. Though I am unsure at this point if for these two I’ll be writing descriptions of the content. Perhaps on the STEM page. Continue reading Day 14: Kindness challenge
Today was a busy an entertaining day. Husband and I went shopping. We spent tons on treats for the girls, that is: the cat, the dog and the fishes. We also treated ourselves to a bottle of lemon Becherovka and a meal. The meal was terrible. The worst rump-steak I had in my life. Overcooked, chewy and with all the wrong spices. On the plus side, we now know where not to go for lunch. Continue reading Day 12: Kindness challenge
Today has been an extremely busy day. And in fact, still is. Is past 20.00 hours here, but I am catching up with The House Judiciary Hearings. If I don’t fall asleep, it is possible I might pull an all-nighter with the new DOJ’s IG Report. There is also something else I was unaware of until recently, oral hearings regarding Richard Blumenthal, et al. v. Donald J. Trump. Continue reading Day 9: Kindness challenge
Today’s kindness challenge was a simple one. I have moved many times during my lifetime, including across countries. In all those moves I have lost many books. I realized that I could never have the library I wanted. But I have also realized that books are meant to be read and to be shared Continue reading Day 4: Kindness challenge
