online quizzing

We were supposed to be having a physical quiz night last Friday in our church hall, but of course, in these times, that was out of the question. So I planned an online one via zoom. I restricted the numbers to 60, and 58 signed up. We had 11 teams, and used the breakout rooms…

Nature vibes

I went for a walk this morning, before our virtual Church. The sun was shining, everything was fresh from the rain from the night before and the birds were singing. It was very refreshing. Here are some highlights and impressions. When I was coming back up from the river, i met a man at the…

joy, Marie Kondo style

i was reading an article today about Marie Kondo and how she started out as a tidiness guru. Apparently she started already at university, tidying up peoples rooms when she dropped by, tidying their desks etc. She could not help it and became known for it. Reading that, made me look at my desk, which…

Today was the day that Kitty tried to sneak up on her favorite position. She started on the chair, first in the office this morning, then lay around on the floor as if catching rays, did a quick leap on to the desk via my vacated chair at an opportune moment, and then perfected the…

home office upgrade

now that I have been working from home so long, and it looks like it will continue, I decided it was time to upgrade my desk. Now of course buying a new desk in a shop is not possible, and ordering online would take forever so I popped onto the local auction site and managed…

Birthday in lockdown

it was my daughters birthday last week, and today it was mine. The current restrictions means no ride on the lake, or lunch at a nice restaurant. However, at some point I hope to be able to do those things. I took the day off, as I really do not like having to work on…
