As Monday is my "Do nothing" day, I just gathered the pictures for Our World, now I always have to dig in my folders, no new travel in view, whole Europe is red zone.
Our lockdown meeting was in our home and Mr. G. showed proudly his new Smartphone for Seniors. Now he has just learned how to call and how to answer and also discovered the contacts. What our friend had explained to him was too much and he had mixed up everything !
I did my weekly food shopping and came back exhausted it's really no fun to disinfect your caddie your hands and follow the lines.. Normally Mr. G. does the shopping which makes him move a bit, but he always buys the same things so this time I changed and also bought other fruits than apples and different ham and cheese. Then I saw a ready made Sauerkraut just to heat up and thought that was the right plate to eat on a cold day. It was very good.
We had another lockdown meeting at Nicole's and talked about the people who start to feel depressed or unmotivated for everything and everybody has a lack of energy ! The pharmacies have never sold so many antidepressants. The suicide rate has also increased although they try not to talk too much about it. It's great time that we return to normal life with cinemas, theatres, zoos, fun parks and all folklore events. Instead the streets are empty and everybody is masked.
Lots of Europeans also watched the inauguration of the new President Biden in the USA,and I noticed for the first timed that Lady Gaga has a wonderful voice ! I always thought she was gaga (which means crazy in French) and that she was more famous for her extravagant outfits !
The whole ceremony was very nice and the first one in history where all present people were wearing a mask ! This certainly will go into all history books. King Trump who didn't want to leave the White House and had nearly to be kicked out, disappeared with wife Melania ! Now I wonder if she stays with him or not ! She really has hated to be the first Lady !
In the night we had a storm with 90/100 km/h ! My room is just at the corner of the building so the wind whistled loud ! I thought how lucky I am I don't have to fear that the roof or our house flies away ! And now its starts again just before I go to bed.
Hard times but try to take it easy !
