One of the things I miss during this pandemic year is not having a regular supply of mushrooms. I only do the shopping every 2 weeks, which means I only get to buy things like mushrooms and avocados every 2 weeks. Most of the other fruits and vegetables will last long enough but I can’t stock up on mushrooms.
On the other hand, I’m really enjoying having that free day every other week.
As is, we indulge in lots of mushrooms for a few days – and maybe a few avocados, too.
Then we go back to eating winter squashes……

I haven’t been on a walk in 2 weeks. It’s been raining. When I had a walking buddy we would set off with rain forecast, and often walk in the rain. Somehow, I feel rather silly walking in the rain during a pandemic lockdown all by myself.
Besides, my paperwork allowing me to be out of the house could get wet.
Actually, now that I think about it, I shouldn’t feel at all strange. It makes perfect sense to walk in a cold winter rain in 2020.
I have hopes for tomorrow. It’s supposed to be sunny and we can leave the house during the day without the usual paperwork.
I took this photo when I was still confined to a 1 km radius from our house:
I usually am much further away. Our house is the part on the right. The left is the barn – yes, we have an attached barn. The dark bit across the front is the pool.
Now that the sun sets so much earlier (5:30) I tend to pay more attention.
I’m usually out with Guapa for the last walk of the day. This time of year we get to enjoy both a sunrise and a sunset every day on our walks.
