Remains of a misplaced weekend


My weekend was compressed in one day this week, Friday, because for the next days duty calls me.
The weather was horrible today, freezing cold and snowing. So whatever plans I had yesterday for going out have vanished in the morning by the sight of that sad frozen lanscape outside.

I mean don’t get me wrong, I love snow very much, but that snow with big white snowflakes that covers the ground and reminds of Christmas. The snowflakes of today were very feeble and the cold was simply cutting through skin.
So I dedicated my quiet day to reading and posting few things. In between I smoked few times, I cooked, I listened to music.
Then I tried to fix one of the lights that broke yesterday. Memyselfandela is usually a very good do-it-yourselfer, but today bad luck. Seems that the cables made a shortcut, so on Monday hopefully the mentainance guy will change the whole lamp and if he succeeds he will tell me again the joke : “hehe, it costs you 50 Pounds”… So I will answer him again with the same smile: “hehe, go straight to the manager”… 🙂

I have spent all my day with my old friend, my sciatic pain, a friend that kindly visits me every once in a while. I am a very warm soul and I welcomed it a bit too often, it seems now my friend wants to stay for longer. 🙂


I have read awesome posts all day long, listened to fabulous music and worked myself on several posts, so this was a great day after all.

I know that outside, despite all that cold, flowers continue to grow and prepare to show their beautiful faces in the morning sun.


So Good Night World, tonight I’ll be dreaming of restless buds and shiny sunrises. 🙂

    • My old friend is as faithful as I am… so we live together in harmony… 😆
      Thank you so very much. Sometimes I put some drops of my life in here… I wish I could invite you all for a cup of tea/coffee, but since that’s not possible I write about life. And so you know me better and I get to know you better as well 😀
