Cold ...

I will be busy today as I have spent the last three days more or less in bed with a cold, and now I have to get the last Christmas things done before my family will start arriving. Yay!

Have a great weekend.

Corner view: Traditions

Meet my yule nisse. He comes out every year around Christmas time and if I don't treat him well he can be vary naughty hiding or breaking things, make food taste strange, not bring any presents, etc.

Corner view: Improvising

Including today, I have 24 days left of my 365 project (one photo a day). Once in a while it has been necessary to improvise as the other day when I went to Málaga with the purpose of taking some photographs a.o., and realized that I had left the memory card in my pc at home. It was siesta time and no open shops around ... so no photo of the day from Málaga as planned.

The above shots are the result of that day's (evening's) improvisation - pictures taken in my kitchen and the photo of the day, one of the ones of the magazine rack.

In my previous post Orange Monday I wrote that there was orange alert. In Spain they use these weather warning definitions:

Missing, insufficient, outdated or suspicious data.

No particular awareness of the weather is required.

The weather is potentially dangerous. The weather phenomena that have been forecast are not unusual, but be attentive if you intend to practice activities exposed to meteorological risks. Keep informed about the expected meteorological conditions and do not take any avoidable risk.

The weather is dangerous. Unusual meteorological phenomena have been forecast. Damage and casualties are likely to happen. Be very vigilant and keep regularly informed about the detailed expected meteorological conditions. Be aware of the risks that might be unavoidable. Follow any advice given by your authorities.

The weather is very dangerous. Exceptionally intense meteorological phenomena have been forecast. Major damage and accidents are likely, in many cases with threat to life and limb, over a wide area. Keep frequently informed about detailed expected meteorological conditions and risks. Follow orders and any advice given by your authorities under all circumstances, be prepared for extraordinary measures.
