HODGEPODGE JANUARY 20

1. What's something we'd find you doing most afternoons? 

Nothing special because I am locked in because of the lockdown ! I surf on Internet, I watch TV, sometimes shopping and our lockdown meeting with my two friends. Ah yes I forgot, there is also the telephone !!

2. Who do you take after? In what way(s)?

My parents pretend that I am as crazy as my aunt, my mother's sister who loved adventures, travelling and had the same hobbies as I have. I also looked like he. My parent's friends and the rest of the  family pretended that I have nothing taken from them but that I am rather a Cuckoos egg, because these birds lay their eggs in the nests of other birds, who are fooled into raising the infant cuckoo as one of their own.

3. 'After every storm comes a rainbow' or 'the calm before the storm'...which phrase do you relate to more right now? Tell us why? 

In normal times I would say that after every storm comes a rainbow because with me a glass is always half full and never empty ! But now after two lockdowns and deprived of my freedom, I am rather thinking the calm before the storm, because each time I am hopeful my lifestyle would become normal again, another bad news arrives !

4.What are your plans for the day after tomorrow?  

I will celebrate a lockdown birthday with 3 friends ! 

5. Complete this sentence-"After all is said and done I go to bed." 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I think I stopped thinking ! Anyway it doesn't change a thing ! Each day is the same and no end is in view ! If at least we would have nice weather so that I could go in the woods and try to make nice pictures, but it is wet and muddy and you can't even go inside a bar and warm you up with a drink. Everything is closed.  And shopping is not at all my thing !

I'm flip about expression storms.
Coffee is on and stay safe

Gattina,

Your #2 made me smile. Raising kids is a hard job but when they are small is the easiest phase, it's when they become rebellious teens and adults that are worrisome. Here's to rainbows in 2021!

Thanks for sharing your answers. I hope when you find time, you'll stop by for a visit with me at Curious as a Cathy!

I am not happy with the pandemic, I have a sister who needs support right now and I can not visit. Being "stuck" because of something outside of my personal control can be frustrating. I will smile at everyone, slow down, say thank you, give loads of complements, laugh and wish everyone a Happy Day! I wish you have a marvellously Happy Day!
