Ack forgot to post yesterday. I really do need to do it earlier when I'm actually thinking about it! I will have to catch up on blogs tomorrow as here it is, almost time to go to bed and I almost forgot to post again.
Thanks for the comments about the postcards. I think I might frame them along with the photos I took of the lighthouses. I have kept back so many lovely old postcards from Jane's. Some I will try to do something with, the others I need to find someone to take them. It's amazing how many she collected. I think she went to postcard shows too (yes, there is such a thing!) and bought some from there.
It wasn't a particularly busy day yesterday. I did write a list and manage to get most of things on it done. Today I went for a walk with my friend and got a few things done at home. I started sorting through the kitchen cupboards. Ugh. It's something I need to be more organised on. There are so many outdated things. I got a little discouraged and will finish tomorrow. I used to have a rotation for household chores - daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly. I think I need to do something like that again so that tasks like the kitchen cupboards doesn't get left until so many things are expired. Food is just too expensive for me to be so wasteful!
Tomorrow will be a morning walk and back at Jane's in the afternoon. Things are winding down but there is still work to be done!
A couple of (trivial) things annoyed me today. Husband stopped by the place where we used to get our tv and home phone from as they hadn't adjusted the bill from when we cancelled. He was told that they no longer pro-rated the month. If you cancelled mid-month or even a day after new billing, you forfeited the whole month. I was not happy. I paid it but even if we decide to get tv stations again it won't be through them. I did write and posted on their Facebook page how disgusted I was and warning others. When husband returned the equipment, they could have said something to him. The second thing that annoyed me was Instagram. I posted this photo
And ended up with this notice put across my photo when people went to look at it! They didn't email or contact me and, apparently, there isn't an easy way to dispute this as it's not considered a violation.
Husband said it had been removed, but I could never see it from my own account. On my page there was no notice at all. Sigh.
On to things that made me smile
Yesterday's walk. A fluffy kind of cloud day. The field is looking quite green and is very overgrown!
I stopped at the farm shop on my way home from my walk today and got some lovely fresh strawberries. They were delicious!
Those strawberries do look delicious. I don't understand why Instagram decided to post a warning on your photo! Yes, it depicts a blue heron catching a fish! That's what herons do! They don't just wade in the water to cool off their long legs! Honestly!ReplyDelete
The strawberries were lovely. I'm not sure why Instagram did what it did. I posted a photo a couple of months back of a heron fishing and not a word lol. My daughter seems to think someone reported it as offensive.Delete
Lovely strawberries. How will you use them?ReplyDelete
Very annoying about that photo. It's nature, it's hardly nasty, it's what happens naturally and I think it's a brilliant photo. Maybe some are too sensitive for their own good and, I agree, you should have been informed.
Have a good clear out! xx
We had them cut up with Angel Food Cake (an American thing) and ice cream. LovelyDelete
I couldn't believe that either when I saw it. A bird in it's habitat, eating what it eats...crazy, crazy. Think about the strawberries instead...ahaha It's strawberry time here as well!ReplyDelete
I always mean to go strawberry picking and miss it. Lol. I missed planting any of my own too.Delete
I'm not sure what craziness Instagram was feeling when they did that. It's apparently sorted now.
I saw the warning on the heron photo and couldn't understand why it was necessary. Instagram does strange things sometimes. Brilliant photo though.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I just was concerned people would think I was posting something rude!Delete
My late mother had sixty thousand postcards when she died. Yes, 60,000. She had so much pleasure from them. My poor brother has gone through and scanned the family ones, but we were overwhelmed. I believe he talked about some museums taking some postcards, and bundles are sold on eBay.ReplyDelete
I absolutely do not understand why the pic was censored. I know that they say that Nature is red in tooth and claw, but that pic was possibly mildly pink. How frustrating! (I haven't been on insta for sometime)
