    Ate a traditional meal prepared in a traditional way in a small restaurant.

    Had a small, pre birthday celebration at my sister's house. (My birthday clashes with her moving day tomorrow.) I ate some Thai chicken stir fry with cashew nuts, watched the WoW episode of South Park, received a Mad Max Fury Road Funko Pop, and won a bit of cash on a lottery scratch card.

    Recently I mentioned some health issues for my grandma. She's now passed away, but the funeral was an absolutely wonderful celebration for a dynamic woman who lived out more than 100 years of love, humility and strength. A rare gem indeed! I'm grateful for having had her in my life.

    Sorry about your grandma. I'm glad she had a nice long life.

    Got together with a few old friends. I almost dislocated my jaw laughing when we retold anecdotes from our past.

    Upgraded from a cane (or 2) to a Rollater, which is a fancy walker. Stupid knee is still messed up and I was too unsteady on the cane. Insurance picked up the whole cost, which is the something good.

    A stressful thing that I have been dreading for some time has now passed. That huge over hanging anxiety is gone for now, but it’s left a huge tangible hole. I think I’ll fill it with KFC and booze.

    I ate an apple and it stayed down =)
    LOL yes, sounds trivial but I've been sick ever since Friday evening. Seems I caught a few EHEC bacteria.
    Bonus: I lost 6 lbs. YAY! (But since I have a business meeting in Nuremberg tomorrow and there's this terrible chocolate factory outlet midway, directly next to the Autobahn, I expect those 6 to be back by next week and to bring reinforcements..)

    My lantana is finally blooming after a horribly hot summer.

    what colour is it? I rescued one from the compost heap a few weeks ago and it turned out to be a very intense textmarker-red that changes into a deep velvety raspberry-red. I was rather surprised since I had previousely known only the traditional variety that changes from yellow to pink and a yellow/white variety.
    Nights here are getting cold (4-6°C) so I brought mine indoors on Monday.

    The flowers are yellow and white. I thought I was buying an all-yellow one, because I could only see a few yellow ones. In full bloom, the white flowers are in the middle and the yellow ones are on the outer part of the circle. I would have preferred all yellow, but it's still nice. I've had this plant for years; I'm surprised I've managed to keep it alive this long.
