My CD collection give me a real trip down memory lane. Now I am listening to Fields of the Nephilim.
The Heart of Saturday Night by Tom Waits is a great album. Another one I am rediscovering as I transfer my CDs to disk.
I never warmed to the characters of Mr. Bean and Johnny English, so I was very pleasantly surprised by Rowan Atkinson as Inspector Maigret.
Lisbon tiles. Literally.
The other day I made Teriyaki sauce, and today I did Teriyaki-glazed ribs for lunch. The boys loved them.
My machine is coming back to life; project re-install and configure is proceeding according to plan.
I have now picked up what I hope will be the permanent replacement for my MacBook, so today is “install all the software and configure”-day. Thankfully past me has prepared scripts that automates a lot of it.
Pleasant side effect of ripping my old CD collection: re-discovering a LOT of great music.
50 Shades of Pink
The little joys of finding things you didn’t realize you missed. This weekend I went shopping at Aldi, and found paprika flavoured crisps, and smoked trout.
Yesterday I made Teriyaki sauce from this recipe, and then teriyaki chicken. It was really nice, if I may say so myself.
I have company under the desk today.
I’m not sure if reply editing is a recent feature on micro.blog, but I just found it, and it’s a godsend. Small screen, fat fingers and aging eyes make for quite a few embarrassing typos, and now I can fix them!
I have been trying out Castro as a podcast client over the last few weeks, and I am very happy with it. Today I purchased a subscription. Not only for the features it unlocks, but also to support the creators.
I am thinking of getting a Tech Pouch to store chargers, cables, powerbanks, dongles and other digital doohickeys.
The weekly shopping is done. I must have been hungry/peckish, because I came home with considerable more snacks and treats than usual.
Operation “Transfer my CD collection into lossless digital files” starts today.
Today I’m at the beach. I shot some pictures with the camera, transferred them wirelessly to the iPad mini. Then I edited them, wrote a little piece in iA Writer, and published it to micro.blog via the phone. All while sitting on the pier, listening to the waves. Magic.
The beach is different in autumn. A lot less people, and the fishermen are more prevalent.
The tractors are pulling the boats to and from the sea.
A typical fishing vessel
You can even buy the fresh catch, right on the beach.
A little crab dancing on the beach.
Shells and feathers washed ashore.
Autumn leaves on artificial turf. From my morning walk.
Lovely lunch today. Ramen from Ajitama.
I have taken to bringing the camera when I walk the dog in the morning.
This flower is part of a mural on the wall of the municipal assembly hall.
I love the strong yellow of this building.
I like how the washing is hung between the windows. People live their daily lives here.
This is also Brownie, and she’s cuddly too. @ohBananaJoe
On the record player now, a nod to my Swedish friends.
