Daily down under Lockdown Diary
Woke at my usual time 5.30am.........Over my morning coffee I wrote a list of things to do today. Aint going to tell you what was on the list...........cos I didnt do any of them.
Instead, I breadcrumbed a fresh fillet of snapper and pan fried it for breakfast.
It was so quiet outside due to no cars driving past I decided to go sit on the front verandah with my second and third cup of coffee. You could have heard a firing pin drop, it was so quiet.
At 7,30 there were the sounds of the neighbourhood coming to life. Doors slamming, kids squealing, usual suburbia sounds which, normally you dont hear due to traffic noise.
By 8.30, I had positive proof that the lady that lives across the road and I had a lot in common........We both think her husband is a lazy SOB !!! Reason I know she thinks this is that she proceeded to yell at him to get out of bed and mow the lawns.....He told her to shut up and the argument started....Didnt hear their lawn mower at all today so I guess he won.....Round 2 will probably start at the same time tomorrow so must diary a reminder to be out there tomorrow for it.
9.30........Seems like people are taking the govts advice to walk for exercise...Had a steady procession of all shapes sizes and genders walking/jogging/running past the property .
Every time someone with a dog walked past on the other side of the road. the dog that lives next door to the previous mentioned people ran out of its kennel and barked non stop till the walker was out of sight. I spent 20minutes observing their fence to see if the gaps were big enough for a .284 120gr projectile from the 7mm08.....I think its doable......( Just kidding....but the range finder indicated 62m to a large enough gap in the fence) I know, I know, its not the dogs fault, its an owners fault.
Talking of jogging/running......I never realized how many good looking athletic young women lived in the neighbourhood - had a steady stream of them running/jogging past the house, and due to the mild temps, most of them were wearing halter tops, with the motion of jogging and gravity combining to make it very compulsive viewing...........Will be watching the video I took with great interest later...........
Decided I had better do something worthwhile so I started to clean out the kitchen cupboards, some of which hadnt been looked at for a number of years.
Can anyone tell me if cans of baked beans with an expiry date of 1999 would be still okay to eat? Asking for a friend..........
I managed to consolidate my coffee stash in one place finally. Did a quick calculation and, working on my usual 15-20 mugs a day, I am set till july 2023..........might have to get some more when I do a grocery run.........You can never have too much coffee.
Cleaned out 8 cupboards and re arranged everything to my satisfaction. Found a can of Hodgdons CFE 223 and a container of Varget hidden behind the coffee btw.....
Lunch was more fresh fish and fresh tomatoes.Decided to relax after lunch and watched a doco on Hitlers stormtroopers.
Knitepoet phoned and we talked for a while, we solved most of the worlds problems before hanging up.
Gotta go now as its early evening and being so mild I am picking the joggers will be out in force.............its better viewing than whats on tv.
Will update you on round 2 with the neighbours across the road tomorrow.
Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
