A beautiful Morning again

I love the early mornings, when the sun is just coming up again. I have a SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE in the oven. This is one of my favorite meals! 🙂

This meal is meant to be for one person, but it lasts me for two meals because I have a few extra things on the side.

After breakfast I’ll be going for a stroll in the beautiful and usually extremely deserted park at the back of my house. I have frequent breaks, especially when I’ve been walking a bit too fast for, I get easily out of breath.

When I have a break, I can sit on one of the park benches, or I just sit on my rollator seat for a while in the middle of one soccer field or close to some trees. There are dozens and dozens of great trees spread out all over the park! 🙂

I am so lucky that I have such a wonderful environment in these awful lockdown times. Can’t see my children or grandchildren or great-grandchildren. One daughter can usually give me some essential help about once a week. However, I insist on social distancing. So sad!

Whether she is now allowed to continue seeing me for essential help is doubtful for she lives about ten kilometers away! Maybe she needs some special permission from now on. We don’t know yet.

So, now I’ll go and enjoy my all heated up SPAGHETTI BOLOGNAISE! 🙂

  1. Yes, Uta…these mornings are very nice..I have to rise early to attend to the horses feeds so I see the sun rise…

    Y’ know..
    I go outside in the mornin’
    Pause..take in th’ weather..;yawnin’,
    Mark how the dawnin’ sun
    Gives the silver’d branches of the Mallee
    A dun coloured sheen…nice ‘n clean.
    Matching the wing of a galah
    Tight-cling’d there…..on a spar.
    An’ I’m thinking..
    In this quiet, morning haste
    That one oughta’ feel some poetry
    Whilst in such a place..
    But then…ah..it’d just be a waste…

      1. ” You cannot partake in a clash of civilisations if you loathe your own civilisation. …”
        This statement is disingenuous in that it presumes that the only reason “The West” cannot support its own colonisation is because there are those that despise the morals and ethics of the accepted “Western” principles of superiority in philosophy and creativity..
        The perpetrators and self-proclaimed “owners” of “Western ideals” have no intention of altruistic spreading of the best of those ideals, rather, they mostly are the moguls, meglomaniacs and ultra conservative wealthy who use a nation’s military to illegally invade and subjugate via puppet regiems so as to strip the wealth of that nation..they are brutal, lying deceitful propagandists..
        It is the upper middle-class that commits all these brutal acts of invasion / subjugation because THAT is the core philosophy of middle-class economics..to aspire to wealth, materialism, consumerism…Since the industrial revolution, they have destroyed those cottage industries, the trade skills and the village cultural communities…driven millions into cities and made them dependent on the middle-class brand of economics, food consumption and envious materialism…I could go on, but I think you get my drift…That article and the website are bullshit sites created by the middle-class to promote themselves and their agendas.
        “They create a wasteland and they call it peace” ..Tacitus ; The speech of Calgacus. https://www.thelatinlibrary.com/imperialism/readings/agricola.html

      2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_O%27Neill_(columnist)
        Brendan O’Neil is the author of the above article. Oh yes, he may be promoting this kind of middle class that you were referring to.

        Thanks, Joe, for this link to:
        Tacitus: Calgacus’ Speech to his Troops (A.D. 85).

        The more I look at this speech, the more interesting I find it. I think you’re right in studying history, Joe, This may make us better equipped to understand what is going on in our time!

        Tacitus says about Calgacus, “a man of outstanding valor and nobility”
        And Calgacus says about the Romans: “Do you suppose that the Romans will be as brave in war as they are licentious in peace? . . .”

        Calgacus also says in that speech: “. . . those who have ceased to fear will begin to hate. . .”

  2. Sounds beautiful, indeed. I love that you can sit with trees at the park and commune with them. 🙂 I love trees!
    Yes, ’tis sad we can’t see family as we would like to see them. 😦
    But, we are grateful for all the good in our lives amongst all the struggles with lockdowns, etc. We are counting the blessings each morning. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) ❤

    1. Oh yes, Carolyn, for as long as we can still enjoy beautiful mornings like these, we have reason to count our blessings. 🙂

      Thank you very much for commenting, dear Carolyn! 🙂

      HUGS from me too! 🙂

    1. Linda, strangely enough, right now I quite enjoy having time to myself. It beats having to go in and out of Medical Centres! Some of the news do give me the creeps. One Australian interviewer said yesterday, she was having two meltdowns in the one day. But she picked herself up and was alright for her Afternoon Briefing TV Program. I had such a meltdown day too yesterday, but was able to pick myself up within hours! 🙂

      1. Thanks for being so understanding, dear Linda.
        I am very sorry, that a lot of people find it so difficult to cope with this pandemic.
        And I feel so sorry for people that do have no suitable living quarters to cope with the DELTA variant of the virus. There are actually millions of people that have nowhere to stay right now. And I think it will get worse! I have such a lovely newly renovated home and nobody to share it with! Somehow, this does not make a lot of sense, does it?
        I hope, that once I am gone, the house is going to be filled with new life. Or is again just one single person going to live in it? Well, whatever will be, will be.
        But the meltdown occurred for once because I can’t stand the thought that mothers are not allowed to see their children that are with covid in an isolation ward.
        And also, it is very, very sad, that right now there is practically no communication with my children. I feel so guilty about it, and still I cannot change it. I love my children, and I know they do love me. Despite all this there is an immense lack in communication. I feel guilty and also kind of selfish about this.
