Operation Oysterhood: 22 April

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A morning with Glinka, coffee, biscuits (Glinka insisted on her share) and books. My best time for reading is after waking up, but I haven’t been able to read for leisure in a few days, so today was a treat.

The Rosebank Glasspecker Strikes Back

Yesterday, he managed to pull down some of the newspapers I used to block the reflection of his ‘rival’, so I taped the window. This morning, he not only pecked away at the remaining newspapers, but also at the tape, and he found the ‘other’ bird again. The glass-pecking continued through the day.

The dedication is admirable.

I am getting an owl.

A social Skype lunch with my Family in Austria (I had spicy two-minute noodles, my Mom cooked a real meal for her and Krystian) and a real dinner around my dining room table with my love’s Family! I braaied for us – felt a bit nervous braaing for more than two people, but all went well. I even impressed myself, so I am happy to brag about it.

Otherwise, a day of work. Progress made on many fronts. A great development: gradually, toxic people are disappearing from my professional life. On all projects I am involved in, I am surrounded by lovely people who inspire me. It makes such a difference!

A worrying development: the first indications of the third wave rolling in are surfacing. F@#$%ck!

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
