47/365 : Another day in paradise

Today was Victor’s first day back at (physical) school since before Christmas, and of course it had to coincide with a 20cm dump of snow overnight which turned a normally 20-minute drive into a 30-minute drive (excluding the 10 minutes it took to clear the snow off the car!). Fortunately, we’re used to this kind of weather around here, so the roads were generally pretty good and the trip was uneventful.

33/365 : We gotta get out of this place

33/365 : We gotta get out of this place

In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refuse to shine
People tell me there ain’t no use in trying
Now my girl you’re so young and pretty

And one thing I know is true
You’ll be dead before your time is due
I know

Watch my daddy in bed and tired
Watch his hair been turning gray
He’s been working and slaving his life away
Oh yes, I know it

He’s been working so hard
I’ve been working too babe
Every night and day
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
We gotta get out of this place
If its the last thing we ever do

We gotta get out of this place
‘Cause girl, there’s a better life
For me and you
Now my girl you’re so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true, yeah
You’ll be dead before your time is due

I know it
Watch my daddy in bed and tired
Watch his hair been turning gray
He’s been working and slaving his life away
I know

He’s been working so hard
I’ve been working too babe
Every day baby
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
We gotta get out of this place
If its the last thing we ever do

We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there’s a better life
For me and you

We gotta get out of this place
If its the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there’s a better life for me and you
Believe me baby
I know it baby
You know it too

32/365 : Good morning

A warm sunrise on a cold day. Sometimes the first thing you see in the morning is all you need for the 365.

31/365 : A birthday, muted

Today is my father’s birthday, and for the first time we won’t be able to celebrate it together as a family (anyone care hazard a guess as to why?).

In lieu of a celebratory dinner en famille, I baked some mini chocolate whisky cakes and delivered them to my dad’s this afternoon, ready to be en-candled and enjoyed for dessert.

We live in trying times; one has to try to adapt.

January Roundup

Well, that was fast. It’s hard to believe that we’re almost one-twelfth (8.2%!!) of the way through 2021. Here’s a somewhat random roundup of what I saw and captured this month… mostly around the house, of course.

Pandémie oblige.
