Apart from reading books
– (The Cockroach by Ian McEwan, How the Dead Speak by Val McDermid, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins, The Near Witch by V. E. Schwab, Hear the Wind Sing by Haruki Murakami and If it bleeds by Stephen King) –
and eating cookies (sorry, no pics, I was too busy eating them), I didn’t get much done this month except visiting the zoo twice (due to my panda bear addiction) and getting myself a new fridge.
I’ve felt sleepy a lot of the time. Which could be because I read so many books, or because that dreaded second wave of the Corona virus threatens to be soon upon us here in Germany thanks to all those idiots not wearing masks etc.
It’s difficult not to despair because of things, and even though I know that being creative helps battling an upcoming depression (no worries, it didn’t get as bad as that), I simply couldn’t muster the energy.
But I guess that’s true for a lot of folks at the moment, so I’ll stop complaining now.
Here’s a pic of me and my old fridge (and when I say old, I mean old – this guy was in his 30s! Ehm, which incidentally I am as well – does that make me old too?! 😂)
And here’s the new one – at first I couldn’t get used to the fact that it was way taller than me! But I’m already planning to bake three-storeys high cakes one day in the future and now I finally have enough space to chill the thing. 😉
But now to my zoo pics!
And staying on the continent of Africa just a little longer, I was fascinated watching these Black Headed Weavers doing their magic and building nests:
Probably not perfect to build nests with but aren’t these ferns just beautiful?
But don’t let me keep you in an agony of suspense, I know you’ve been waiting for these. 😉
Unfortunately the panda babies were fast asleep each time I visited so I didn’t make a video. But photos of napping bears should be enough compensation.
Maybe not as much of a crowd-puller as the pandas but in my eyes just as cute is this new born Siberian ibex:
And this was it! Hope you enjoyed this post, and I look forward to reading yours!
