|2021-01-02 - New year and
There are now 30 days
until we take over the new summerhouse. Tina has already
spend all of our money ten times on furniture and stuff. I
am more realistic and have only spend our money two times.
There is not much to do at this time other than just wait.
As we always do - we
keep to ourselves new years eve and watch movies. This year
we had a shrimp cocktail as starter. Then we had lamb chop
with potatoes and tzatziki. As dessert Tina made lemon
It was super - Tina really knows her shit.
Afterward we first watch
the movie Tenet and then
midnight sky on NetFix. I think both movies were wired
in each in their own way. Tenet was kind of confusion and
the story was just a little to fantastic for my taste. The
midnight sky was okay - but way to slow at times.
On monday it was time
for the annual cleaning behind our shower cubicle. Last year
I left this metal cookie jar behind the shower, because it
was leaking just a little bit. That turned our to be a huge
mistake from my side. It was completely rusted and the
bottom just gave away when I pressed just a little. It had
also left a huge mark on the floor - what a bummer.
After a lot of polishing
with ceramic cleaner I almost got the mark reduced to almost
nothing. The main purpose of the cleaning was to check the
stop valves and to exercise them a little so they don't get
On tuesday I took a 25
km long bike ride along my usual walking path. That was a
lot faster than walk but kind of busted my knee because my
saddle is adjusted wrong. At times I just fell so old'ish.
I have revived
my previous computer after a 2 year exile on the
attic. This machine is incredible. If think I build
it in 2010 or around that time. The motherboard is a
P6X58D Premium from Asus. It has a Core I7 in
LGA 1366 socket, 24 gb ram and a SSD drive. And it
still fells like it is way faster them my current
work laptop from work.
The only reason I had to discard it was because
stopped supporting than socket. That is not a
problem as I only have installed Windows on it. The
plan is to bring the computer down to our coming
summerhouse. I the beginning we won't bring any
expensive stuff down there.
Tomorrow sunday I plan
on doing yet another super long walk. I am not sure if my
legs will love that - but that's what they will get. The
weather forecast for sunday is around 3 degrees, little wind
and some sum now and then.
On monday it's back to
work - or back to work from home again. I really need to don
more workout and move around. I have aleast gained 4 kilos
this december. I cannot afford to buy new cloths one site
larger at this point and I really don't want to become fat.
My plan is to use Tina's
exercise bike way more until I can begin coming back to work
and enjoy my bike ride.

I have changed the top
picture to yet another picture from my trip to Norway last
summer. I think the location is around
chinese Corona news
This might sound stupid
- but that is exactly what I am experiencing. Many years ago
(>10) I had the flu and a sinusitis - I remembered it as a
tough one. Since then I have had problems with runny nose.
Especially in the morning. Sometime it can ruin a hole day.
But after I had Corona I have not had any problems with
runny nose. I am not concluding that Corona fixed my nose
but - just saying it is different. It could of cause also be
because there is less pollution in the air - but still, the
Corona was a turning point.
