When it comes to the Internet, I hate Sundays. Almost no one has written anything new on their blogs, many sites that I like to go to put up links to things I’ve already read about during the week, and not many people make it to my blog. I guess everyone is having a full, fun weekend and have better things to do than post something on their sites. Since Maurice and I are retired, Sunday is just about like any other day except there is nothing good on the TV, all stores are closed and, as I said, the Internet seems pretty much dead. My high point today will be going to a local market and buying fruit which, really, is pretty great and I have nothing to complain about. I guess I use my computer as my link to the world, especially things going on in the States. I read the New York Times on line, and, as I said, blogs connect me with Internet friends. I’m always visiting Amazon and trying to find inexpensive books to upload on my new Kindle. I’m reading a lot more since I don’t have to go to a store to buy new books or wait for a delivery from Amazon and as a result, spending more money. I have found there are books you can download for free. Of course, they aren’t the new mysteries that I want but I’m starting to read classics or reread old favorites.
Anyway, here is a photo I posted on Facebook and Twitter a few weeks ago that I like. It was taken at a friend’s house on a warm summer evening.
I entitled it: How You Know Your Brie Is Ready To Eat. Cheese is so much better if it sits out for a while instead of being eaten right out of the refrigerator. In fact, Maurice tells me that people used to put their brie in a drawer somewhere and didn’t eat it until it “moved” as in it had worms. I guess you just scraped those babies out and then ate it. A little too ripe for me. I like blue cheeses the best.
Okay. So that’s it for me on this Sunday morning. Time to get dressed and head out for that market. Photos from there next week.
