Country Life: the Self-Isolation

I was going to make this a picture-heavy post, for a change, but it started raining and then it turned to snow, so I gave up my plans to go do some (almost essential) shopping and stayed at home. I mean, mud is annoying enough but freezing mud and sleet is beyond annoying. Continue reading Country Life: the Self-Isolation

A Profound Look Back at the Week: Mar 16-20

It’s damn hard to try and round up a week during which everyone has been talking about one thing and nothing else but I’m taking this challenge because I’ve had enough of this as have, I dare suggest, most people who have not yet become one with their newsfeeds.

A Profound Look Back at the Week: January 21-24

I have now lost all hope for January snow — one thing I could rely on until last year. What’s particularly infuriating is that it’s snowless but cold so we’re not even saving on energy for heating. Besides the feeling of betrayal by nature — with the help of humans, scientists say, though I doubt climate change works with such lightning speed — here’s what I did this week.
