I have my laptop in a very small easy to heat room. I love this small space on a cold winter morning. It feels so snugly warm. Still I have diverse layers of clothes on. I am out to keep as warm as possible. I do not want to catch a cold. With temperatures like we have right now I cannot be too careful! The forecast for today is: Cloudy, windy, max. temperature 16 C. ย This means no sun! Doesn’t sound very good, not good at all. If it gets very windy, I better stay indoors. I do not like cold wind!

Peter is watching a football game in the living room: England versus Italy. I took my coffee to this computer room to occupy myself with taking pictures rather than watching another football game so soon after yesterday’s game: Chile versus Australia. I liked the way the Australians played, but really I am not that much into football that I want to watch every available FIFA World Cup game. But it is great to see that so many people get a lot of enjoyment out of it. In many cities all over the world the games are being watched on big outside screens. Our twin grandsons watch the before mentioned game in a pub in London right now!

All the above photos I took this morning. I glanced some very colourful clouds when I looked outside. My pictures are just some trial pictures. I saw the cloud much more colourful. It did not turn out that good in the photo.

There are several pictures on the wall in front of my laptop. One picture is titled “Family Name History”. The picture was given to us on our 50th Wedding Anniversary by our children. It says a lot about our family name. The print is rather small. This is why it did not come out well in the photo. Maybe some other time I can try to take a better picture of it.

  1. 16ยฐC? Here in Englnad it’s summer and around 19ยฐC – and we think that’s warm!! Though I have to admit, if I were home in Switzerland, I’d be complaining! Your room looks very cosy – i like your yellow beetle.

  2. Great experiments, Aunty Uta! I like the lamp photo better with it lit. It seems to have more depth. I also like the cup of coffee with the yellow beetle under it. Amusing.

    1. Hi, Mary-Ann! This makes my day that you like the picture of the cup of coffee with the yellow beetle under it. Yea, you never know how a certain picture might turn out. I did not design it or anything like that. I just took the picture while I was about to sit down at the computer desk to have my coffee. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Yesterday Elizabeth mentioned that it was sunny and warm in Tasmania. I would have loved to fly over there on the spot! Well, it was different today: We woke up to a clear blue sky! And there was plenty of sunshine all through the day. A truly remarkable change!

    Yesterday we had no sunshine, none at all; some rain, yes, and lots of drizzle. The dark clouds hung around all day, and the wind did get stronger and stronger. Peter did not like his run yesterday, because the wind did blow right through him. I did not dare to go outside at all. Inside, our electric heaters were working overtime.

    Today, on my morning walk, I met lots of people. Every one was very happy that the sun had come out. How things can change so quickly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks for the comment, Ian. The little VW belongs actually to Peter. It was given to him as a birthday gift, if I remember right. Now it has found some kind of a niche under my computer table!
      Yea, it is a very popular little car, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    On that winter morning in June 2014 I wrote that the sun did not come out at all.
    Now in January 2020 in the midst of the Australian summer I am reminded that we have recently had hardly any sun. Always a hazy sky, sometimes a little bit of rain, sometimes smoke from some bushfires that are surrounding us from a long distance away. Yes, blue sky with a bit of sunshine is very rare these days!
