Yes, also when Marion is not around (she had a congress from her work in Germany this weekend) I take good care of myself. For tonight I made myself a delicious schnitzel (“zelf gepaneerd”, no idea how to say that in English). Some baked potatoes and fine carrots/garden peas to it. A little mayonnaise and curry sauce…. and there we have a very nice dinner. Not every dinner has be complicated or expensive.
Mostly when I am alone at home, I eat my dinner on the couch while watching TV, like now I am watching the series of Xena, the Warrior Princess. I watch every day one or two episodes. When I am done with Xena (I am now watching season 5 and there were 6 seasons), I am going to watch the X-Files (I am already collecting the first seasons of the X-Files).
I have been doing some stuff in and around the house this weekend. Some things I had already planned for some time.
So I finally managed to align the two back speakers of my surround sound-system. One of them was standing on 2 meters height on a bookcase, while the other was on the small table on 80 centimetres height. Not really good. The solution is simple, bring both on the same height… preferably something much lower then the one on the bookcase. I also didn’t want to drill holes in my walls. So options were a bit limited.
For some time already I have been looking for table or something alike to place that speaker on so it would on the same height as the speaker that is already standing on that 80 centimetre high table. But all what I saw had the wrong colour, the design was awful or it was too big.
Till last Friday I saw a column that was almost perfect. Yes, almost… because it was white (and I wanted it to be black). But I realized that it could be long before I found something as that column in black. So I bought it with the idea to paint it black myself on a later moment. For now I would place some fabric around it… and to honest, I like it this way. So it may stay this way….
I know… I know… one should not place plants or things on speakers. But I never turn my speakers onto very high volume and I am careful. I may remove the silver statue though. It is just too much for that small area.
On the two bookcases in my bedroom there was a long line of boxes with old computer games. It looked very nice, but I started to run out of space to store the DvD’s & BluRays that I buy. So removed all the boxes with games and placed there instead the bigger DvD/BluRay-boxes that I have, making so a lot of space for new DvD’s & BluRays :).
And those old computer-games? No, I did not throw them away as some lady suggested :P. Even when I don’t play them anymore (many are too old to play on a modern computer), I don’t want to throw them away. So I stored them for now in another closet, but I have to find a better solution for that.
And so there were many more or less small things I did this weekend. But mostly useful things of which I am now happy that they are done. Apart from these things I did of course the normal house cleaning, groceries and laundry. It all belongs to it….
So yes, if you ask me it was a good weekend. Specially because last Friday I felt a bit sick and that is luckily all gone.
1 thought on “A schnitzel and the rest of the weekend…”
I am happy you had nevertheless a good and useful weekend.
Marissa and Sanne asked me to say hello to you :)
