On my travels around the countryside, I’ve come across a number of old reindeer pens that are almost overgrown with bushes and otherwise in a sad state of repair.
I can see why some of them are abandoned since the number of herders and reindeer have dropped over the past 15-20 years. – but I can almost hear the clicking of their hooves when standing in the middle of the pen.
First day with students at school this semester…
… and I’m beat! Could it be because I’ve spent a lot of time this summer almost like a hermit in the middle of society?
After visiting some friends during the day, I decided to take a different route on the way home. I wasn’t disappointed.
I am however very unhappy with the changes wordpress has made to their platform. I want to decide what size my pictures will have – I don’t want stamp-size! I also want to add text after a picture – without having to genuflect Before an altar dedicated to wordpress!
Still no news regarding my laptop…
Yes, I have learned my lesson – no liquids around the computer… It may end up costing me the amount of a new laptop.
It’s often said that accidents comes in three’s – and if that is true I should probably stay close to home… Or maybe not.
First of all – my laptop did not enjoy getting a half glass of water over the keyboard, so now it is dwelling with a guy that will try and resurrect it.
Secondly – my left shoulder is on the fritz. I suspect as a result of old sins (waitressing) and a mulitude of boxes that had to be carried from old to new apartment. I have an appointment for X-rays tomorrow – just to rule out any skeletal problems – but man do I hurt!
Oh, and I have been blogging at WordPress for 6 years now!
Some of you may think I’m at bit of a sizzy, but I can’t quite handle +27,4C – both outside and in the apartment. Especially not when I’m in the midst of moving into a larger apartment…
I’ve showered twice already today – and that’s where I’m headed again in a few minutes. Yes, I am complaining!
When my laptop got a shower, I also lost my feedly… Or rather I can’t remember my password… Please write to me at trudie underscore p at hotmail dot com and give me a link to your blog…
No, I am nowhere near as calm as this picture might suggest…
I had a bit of an accident yesterday evening… My glass of water tipped over my laptop and this was definitely not popular. It died on the spot, so now it’s sitting on top of my bookshelf, in the hopes that it’ll dry up and function again.
I ended up having to bring home my PC from work in the meantime. Luckily, I don’t think I have lost an awful lot – I downloaded all pictures from the last 9 months just the other day…
I was invited to the 10 year reunion of my students who graduated 2004. At first I was a bit leery about the whole thing, but as the day/evening progressed I changed my mind.
I got to talk at length with a number of them – especially two of the boys (well, young men) who have taken the hard route in previous years. One of them is sober and clean since 4 years, the other realised he needed therapy to get rid of his anger, self doubt and destructive behaviour. Out of 36 students in all, 28 showed up for dinner and the three girls who arranged the whole thing were roundly applauded.
Yes, this is the view from the restaurant where we had dinner.
Even though my car is very comfortable, 750 km of driving in one day does something to me. My back feels like a giant board today and my hands hurt.
No fun at all!
