1. I learned in the News that January has the highest rates in suicides ! This fact didn't cheer me up but it's understandable if you look out of the window !
This view I had every day, except the last days of the week were the sun came out. I didn't go out at all, the snow has melted and it looks all so dirty. Besides that in this humidity I have some difficulties to breath. I decided to be in a bad mood, answered emails, wrote posts and watched TV.
My cats are philosophers sleep where it is the warmest and wait for better times. In fact I should do the same.
There was nothing to be photographed except the cats and Rosie posed besides the flower pot. Could make a nice postcard.
Fortunately there is the telephone and you don't have to go out in the cold, I stayed one hour with Nicole on the phone, but couldn't tell you about what we were talking, and then with my neighbor who complained about her daughter, and then with one from my painting course. Mr. G. was shaking his head and wondered when the telephone was free for him.
3. Finally I had to go out and do some shopping. I had seen sauerkraut on TV and like a pregnant woman I absolutely wanted sauerkraut for supper, and for that I had to go out. In this cold weather it is an ideal plate.
And when I had bought what I needed, I saw this sky above the church, it was so amazing, because I had the same sky far away in Egypt not in - 2°C but in + 30° above the beach !
4. Mr. G. new hearing aids were ready to be picked up and I drove him to the hearing test center or whatever the name is in English. This new hearing aid is absolutely great, it's fully automatic, regulates the sound when you are in a place with a lot of noise or in one where are not many people. It is also very polite, because when he puts it in his ears, it says "Welcome" with a little music which means that it's ready to do it's job, and it whistles friendly when the battery has to be changed..
For me a new life has started ! Instead of hearing the whole day long "What did you say ?", now he claims "don't talk so loud"! For the first time in ages we can watch TV together and he has not to wear a special headset, because without, the whole street could hear our TV program and I would be deaf by now too. I can't sneak in the house anymore, now he hears when I open the garage door ! The poor man even complained that his computer mouse clicks too loud !
5; Today in our painting class we were only 7 girls, the others stayed home because of the cold, or they were ill, the flew is moving in ! One had her birthday and had brought two big cakes, of course we couldn't eat it all and she gave me half of the chocolate cake for Mr. G. and took the other half of a rice cake home for her husband.
Otherwise nothing special happened except that I looked once again for my mobile in the whole house and couldn't find it. Finally I asked Mr. G. to call me, what he did and to my surprise it rang in my hand !! I had my camera in my hand and the mobile underneath. Mr. G. shook his head and said that this is typical me.
