This month did not happened a lot, though I did not write about it before and I don’t write about all the entire days of the month, but make three groups instead (see below).
1st to 10th Sept 2020
This first third of the month I got a new girlfriend. I met her by a new group on facebook. The founder asked for new friends and people to meet in Katrineholm. I was faster, than my new friend to apply, but at the meeting of some of us newbies with the local newspaper, I met her. I had been for a walk with two women of the group earlier, just to take me outside again and not only leaving my apartment for buying food. Unfortunately one of these women did use a walker and the other one had a little dog with her. Though, that was a very slow walk. In addition to that, we were three and when I tried to be close to them, but the recommended distance, I was walking on a green side strip and an insect was crawling into the leg of my trousers. Before I was able to kill the insect, it had stinged me six or eight times. The stings were not gone after a week.
Irma, which I met at the special day with the newspaper, writing about our new group, was born the same year as I am and she also is interested in to have company, when she is walking – not on asphalt and in a good speed. We have been walking a lot of times since we met and were talking about a lot of things. Our walks are for around seven kilometers each time and we need around 1 hour and 15 minutes for it. I have got and get sweat every time ;-). I really enjoy her company.
The founder of the facebook group for new friends did set a rule, that all members need a personal photo in their profile. With that she meant a portrait. I think the photo of that ceramic sun from Mexico shows, whom I am and if I would have a personal photo of myself, I would put a photo of me as a baby on my account. I don’t really like facebook, unfortunately it is the best way to get in touch with groups of people. That way I also found the “Reko group” of farmers. I only have the most necessary information in my account. In the “new friends group” i had a text about me as well. By having met the founder and some more members in person, I thought, I have shown, that I am not a troll and real. The founder did not accept that and blocked me. By the way, there was another woman, who wrote, that she is a member of many groups and does not have a photo of herself in her account and not willing to change it. She was blocked as well.
Fall was coming already. I was so surprised, when I have seen the first frostbiten leaves on the trees.
When I was shopping at supermarkets, it happened, that other customers did not wait for their turn and went in between me and the customer in front of me. That was happening, because I kept the distance, but they did not.
One day I was falling over with my bike, when I entered it and the handlebars became crooked, though I was going by it to a bike repairshop. It was corrected very quickly and for free.
As usual I have Skype chats with my son Marcus, get emails of friends etc and all the things I usually do, but I also started in a line dance class. We are only 6 participiants and have a big hall to dance in. We really are keeping the distance. Most of us are in my age, so is the leader. She had been dancing line dance for more than 30 years.
11th to 20th Sept 2020
I skipped the “FridaysForFuture” climate strejk, because I was very tired. I had not slept a lot during the night. Luckily Irene was there anyway. I also bought a second hand TV-bench, even I use it for my laptops and my printer. It looks like new. Actually I had been looking for a shelf or something like that, but I neither did find any with the measurement I needed nor in the colour. The TV-bench fits perfect and for around 5 EUR extra I did get it brought home by car of the seller. If I had ordered a new one, it would always have been the same price for the transport, but three times the price for the bench.
The other special event was the leaflet of the National company for statistics. I filled it at one time only, but it took hours. Even these days I chatted with my son Marcus by Skype, was to the supermarket, picked up the vegetables at the farmers meeting point, were going to my line dancing class etc.
21st to 30th Sept
I was a little more active under these days, though I baked some biscuits and made some vegan cheese. Among them a “Ricottacheese” out of Macadamia nuts. I did not like it so much, but I used a part of it in a pasta dish, where I also had added different vegetables. It was tasting well, even it was not tasting cheese. When I put the biscuits in my special cake boxes, I found in one of them left over biscuits from last Christmas ;-). I also published a sales notice for my environmental friendly face masks.
The weather in September has not been good. Mostly it was grey, some days it was raining – a little less and a little more. Anyway it was possible to take our walks and to hold the climate strikes. On 25th were a new global climate strike again and this time we were seven people in front of the town hall. There was a special motto this time: MAPA (Most Affected People and Areas = global South).
In the afternoon I was with another climate strike, but even they had a big banner with a text including the word together, time after time they did tell the people, listening to us, that it was the strike for the special association (which I also am a member of, but anyway I thought, that was so unimportant. The really important message was to stand up for the environment, climat and the people in the global South). We also participated in the monthly Saturday Shoe Strike, which has gone global as well.
Further more I bought, by an online auction, a few special, small cake molds as well as I booked a table for four for 12th October in a restaurant called Lotus Garden. They have lots of space and the table I booked is not fit to the part of the restaurant, where all the customers are walking. This restaurant opened only weeks before the actual pandemi started and was closed, when the pandemi was at its worse. I also signed up for another class in bugg (the Swedish Rock ‘n’ Roll version). There was a male member of the dancing club looking for a partner. We only can attend together with a partner during these complicated times and there are not even so many pairs as usual in the dance class. It is only for three evenings, but for two hours an evening and I told my partner, that I will wear a face mask (I hope it will work!).
