How y’all doin’ today? My day is going to be great and full of wonders. Because I decided to make it so!
Easy as eating a slice of quadro formaggi pizza. Yumyum and good mood guaranteed, this day will be great. And here is why:
As so often a pic can’t do the reality no justice. Outside my study’s window the world is coming to an end. Torrential rainfall and hurrican-ey winds … and we love it like that. Yes, sure we didn’t move from rainy northern Germany to Africa for such weather but hear me out please.
We’re still in corona lockdown, like most of you too, I suppose. And with weather like that it’s easier to bear being caught in the house. Coz who really wants to be outside in such crappy weather anyway? Me, I just dipped a foot on the frontlawn, got a faceful of rain and decided that the outside world has to do without me today. Also the rain is good for all the shrubs in our little garden and by locking myself away I’m a bonafide superduper heroine and save gadzillions of human lives! 🙂
Having mentioned the obvious upsides of me not mingling with the rest of the world today, what about fighting the boredom inside the house? Peeple, I’m over 50 on the age scale, one can say an old punk, probably a different generation than most of you. You know people in my age bracket usually don’t tend to be bored. Boring af, yes, but never bored ourselves.
And why wouldn’t we get bored? Enough food and drink in the fridge to survive the next two weeks … and I hope the weather will be better by then. 😉 Now food will keep us fed but not entertained, I grant you that. But I’ll tell you another superduperpower we 50+ fraggelz possess: We don’t just consume entertainment, we create entertainment, we amuse ourselves! For example with blogging. Guys, you won’t believe how time just flies when you’re busy composing a blog post.
Also there’s YouTube, which replaced our TV almost completely. You know for movies and series there’s a certain bay but, honestly, I hardly ever find the time to watch a full movie. 😮
And now it started to thunder and the rain doubled down on us. So please forgive me for having the most charming and wonderful day possible. How couldn’t I in conditions like these?
Now quickly prepare hubby’s coffee for when he decides to wake up and join in today’s fun activities.
But coffee is relatively non-evil when compared to the other legal dumb drug:
What else is going on in the world/South Africa? Ugh, yes the bodycount:
That’s up 210 deaths and 7,018 infections in just 3 days! Fuksake peepelz!!! Why are you opening the schools and non-essential businesses already? We’re not even partially through with this pandemic.
Quite the contrary, the curves are inclining! Corona is not through with us! It will get worse, much worse! Fuksake, why can’t nobody apart from the Chinks deal with it?
Ok, Europa didn’t do too badly neither …
Guys, stay healthy! And when it rains, stay at home. It’s best for you and for the world’s population at large!
