Sunday photos – Lava

May 23, 2021

Ufff! That’s the translation and all associated paperwork completed, which is quite a relief. Wouldn’t you know it, my phone died, right in the middle of recovering a password which didn’t help at all. Luckily we have a not-very-smart phone which we keep for emergencies. After charging it and moving the SIM card and memory card over I had a phone again. Of course that left me with apps to…


Sunday Photos: Los Tilos

May 16, 2021

It’s been mad busy. I’ve been translating as fast as I could go and it’s nearly done. The Festivalito film group is going less well. My third attempt at a script was well received, but I had to miss most of the meeting to firm it up. And the next thing I knew was that the group had broken up for reasons I don’t understand. It was a tight, and…

I’ve begun sorting out the balcony for summer. It’s a great spot to sit, or at least it will be again with a bit of work. I have a nice patio table and chairs, lots of plant in plant pots, and there’s an amazing view. The trouble is that the junk does collect over the winter. This year I bought some shelves so that I can store all the empty…


Sunday Photos: More bugs

February 21, 2021

Another week zipped by. I googed off for two days, so inevitably I got less done than usual, but I think it did me good. My writing chums have been busy, and I’ve done quite a bit of crtiquing. I keep making notes for the next novel. I still don’t feel I did much. These photos are from a hike up Barranco de la Madera on Thursday. I also went…

It’s mostly been a “more of the same” type week. I’ve read more of “Murder by Starlight” aloud, and now I’m up to chapter 78, so 10 more chapters done. I’ve carried on practising touch typing, and I’m slowly getting there. I’m still doing 10 ideas a day, not always plot ideas for the next novel and it’s getting easier. I also spent quite a bit of time working on…


Sunday photos: Puntagorda

January 24, 2021

I had a double dose of walks this week, one to the old church at Puntagorda and one around La Salemera. I’m not getting noticeably fitter, but I had fun and took lots of photos. I’m reading through “Murder by Starlight” aloud. The friend who recommended this is quite right; you catch a lot of little things that you missed all the other times through. The trouble is, it’s very…
