Warmer weather would be very welcome. In the last post, I shared some images of frost in Canberra. When I woke up this morning I was feeling quite upbeat. It felt warmer, life was good, so I went for a walk. I needed to go out early. I needed to clean the flat today for a rental inspection this week. For a one bedroom place, it doesn’t take much to get it messy! I need to be more diligent. I tend to focus on other things. I need to regiment myself to be more disciplined.
It was indeed warmer with the temperature an almost ‘balmy’ 5 °C. I didn’t carry my camera with me, I went out in a hoodie and armed with my iPhone.
There were really only a couple of photographs worth editing and sharing.
The lack of clouds and the mild wind made crisp reflections with a moody sky difficult so I was content with some colours on the lake.
I like the colours of these bollards on the lake.
I’m really getting quite sick of winter. I know there is a debate about seasonal affective disorder (SAD), I’m inclined to believe the weather really does influence my mood.
On the way home I had a few friends on Instagram tell me about a chocolate sale at Coles. Would you believe, I’m yet to crack one of these open. It’s hard to believe I know.
And that was when the shine went off the day. I’m not going to go into details, but I ended up in bed just trying to work out some things in my head. I have things to learn in life even at the age of 52. I can still be an idiot.
In addition, I fear this week’s podcast will be a little flat. I made an error with the lighting and made the decision to still record video and audio, but the YouTube show will be a still image with some scrolling text in parts. If you’re interested, this link will be live Monday night 24 July 2017 at 7 pm Canberra time https://youtu.be/rEFD5QP-tNs
I made pineapple pork and rice for dinner. I just didn’t have the desire for anything complex like a slow cooker meal today. packet rice, pork and some pineapple. That’s it.
The highlight today has been a FaceTime session with my two youngest daughters.
