Hello out there in the vastness of isolationsphere. How are you doing? I hope you are finding lots of ideas to fight cabin fever and that you and yours are well. And if not know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would ask which hot beverage you wanted and offer you a cookie or two. We would sit down in the garden because in the more protected places it is warm enough to enjoy the outside.
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would tell you this ending week started well for me: I was courageous enough to have my hair washed for the first time in ages and felt like a human being again. We probably could have done it earlier, but I am a little paranoid when it comes to my scars. I don't want them to get inflamed and give me trouble.
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, you might or might not agree with me. But I would tell you that it doesn't matter now because I know its possible without problems.
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would ask you if there is a place you wanted to visit after this pandemic is over. I would listen to your travel goals and then let you know I could imagine going to Mongolia. In fact, I did travel there virtually with my "Come Away With Me" post on Monday: "We Can Do It but What Day Is It Anyway? Come Away With Me & Beating Cancer Edition (6.4.2020). However, I do not fly any more because of the climate crisis so Mongolia will stay a virtual travel goal :-)
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, we would talk a little about the latest news. Do you think news channels are too negative? I sometimes think they are and I was amazed when I heard about an Australian channel which does good news also:"We Can Do It… but What Day Is It Anyway? Good News Edition (7.4.2020)"

If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would steer the conversation to photography. I told you about a photo project I did many years ago: I took my favourite tea mug everywhere and took a picture of it. On Wednesday I shared some the photo's here: "West Runton With A Mug".
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would ask if you'd like a refill and more cookies. You might agree, and we would sip a little without a word. Then I would ask which post you liked the most this week. I would let you know I enjoyed sharing free learning possibilities this week. Some of them on Thursday: "We Can Do It...but What Day Is It Anyway? (9.4.2020)"
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would wonder if you'd realise it's Easter this weekend. I didn't and wrote a little about it here: We Can Do It...but What Day Is It Anyway (10.4.2020) and a day afterwards I reminded you that there is another crisis we need to deal with: "And Now To Something Different...#ClimateJusticeSaturday ~ 205 Ideas About What You Can Do To Avoid The Climate Crisis."

If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would let you know that besides blogging I have been binge-watching TV programs this week. Mainly "Escape To the Country" and "Wanted Down Under ... Where Are They Now". I like these programs because they teach me about the countries and counties hey are about, and I love to see houses. "Strange" you might think and then let me know what you were watching.
If we were having our favourite hot beverage together, I would yawn. No, no not because you are boring but because I am still somewhat exhausted from healing from my operation. So we would part and wish each other a good new week and that we stay healthy. Happy Easter Sunday to you all despite everything.
Hello dear readers, how are you doing? I hope you can enjoy a calm Sunday and rest well. And if you have to work, I wish you a quiet shift.
I like to invite you to have a hot beverage with me. Maybe we could chat a little about how our week has been? Mine has been sort of quiet. For the first time in weeks, I did not have to go to the hospital or a check-up or GP. Work was a little stressful as we were inspected, but at least that's over now.

So I used the time to do some blogging. My blogging project for the next three years is "Come Away With Me Musial Challenge" on "The Bee Writes...". On Mondays I'll lead you to a country in the world and we'll discover a musician from that country. This week we went to Sweden one of my favourite countries on this planet. I introduced you to the metal band "Meshuggah" and their song "Violent Sleep of Reason" and I also told you a little about my cancer journey.
Are you sitting comfortably? More hot beverage of your choice? Here you go! And with it I offer you some good news. I love languages and learning languages. Admittedly I wasn't aware that the humans on this planet have 7000 languages of which 500 are endangered. How sad is that? But fear not because Daniel Bögre Udell created Wikitongue to upload them for all to remember. You can find out more about the whole endeavour here in my Good News post.
If we were having a hot beverage I would tell you that I have enough of wind and rain. As much as I welcomed the rain by the end of last year (we nearly had a drought here in North Norfolk) we had more then enough in February. In fact, it was the wettest February on record in the UK. Unbelievable. Well, it was a little better for one day so I escaped to our front garden and replanted some new plants. The wind was back the next day but that did not stop me from taking a little a video which I shared for my not so Wordless Wednesday post.
If we were having a hot beverage I would ask you who your favourite author is. Hopefully you can tell me one or two I could discover later in the year. One of my favourite author's passed away five years ago and I told you a little about him here at "So much life, so little time". And then we would move on to our favourite artists. Do you have one? I do. It's Pablo Picasso as it happens and you can find an interesting documentary about him here on my Friday post.
If we were having a hot beverage, I would look outside and ponder life for a little while. But not so long for you to get uncomfortable. I'd look at you and ask: "What do you do about climate change?" and if you'd said: "Nothing!" I would invite you to read my "ClimateJusticeSaturday" post about Luisa Neubauer and be inspired to change that.
We would keep sipping our favourite hot beverages and chat about this and that and then it would be time for you to leave. I would thank you for stopping by and give you my blessings. May you have a wonderful new week!
