I think I’m not the only one who is feeling like a little lunch.

Yay, the new MacBook Pro arrived today. I’ll partake in a short unboxing and then get back to the day job.

We finished our short drive along the coast today. iPhone 12 Pro Max handled low light scenery very well. One image, however, looked converted to a daylight scene.

The view from the car. We headed out for a drive to enjoy the winter sunshine. When lockdown starts, the sea might be out of reach if the government sets a distance from home limit.

Images from today’s walk. We enjoyed the best of the sunshine, but the roads were very slippery.

Last Tuesday the reMarkable 2 arrived. An e-ink tablet that I hope will allow me to compose posts while reducing my time on OLED screens. 📝

First impressions?

Fantastic technology
High quality hardware
Fun to use
Excellent handwriting recognition

We enjoyed a cold and sunny new year’s day walk near home. The roads were icy, so the walk took longer than usual. 📷

I got the DHL confirmation this morning for the reMarkable 2. Now I feel like a kid again at Christmas. ETA 30th December.

Tomorrow will be the first Christmas without family around the table. My wife and I will dine in the new kitchen while the dining room will remain empty. But I’m grateful for the memories and being with a wonderful wife.

Northern Ireland has over 800 single wind turbines. While this is good for the environment, it is better for investors who make money from electricity customers.

It seems money makes the turbine go round, not just the wind. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ire

A change of scene as we enjoy an overnight stay at Tankardstown House. Afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. A short escape before the forthcoming six-week lockdown.

I ran to the nearby Lough today. There was nobody around except one person who had stopped to enjoy the view.

The swans were out in numbers and meandering along the shore. 🏃‍♀️🏃📷

Sometimes I worry over nothing. I expected our new cat scratchers to arrive in plastic wrap, with a few delivery dents. But Amazon packaged my £100 worth of cardboard in a lot of free protective cardboard.

Jasper and Jules will be pleased. 😻

Out for a 6-mile run and I got a bit closer to a local bird of prey. I come across this one quite often. Every time it sees me, it moves to a tree further away. Buzzard or Red Kite, I’m not sure. 🏃‍♀️🏃📷
@danielmackillican on Mastodon and I are on a photo challenge.

So close and yet so far. The buzzards flew close to the rooftop today. I could see their markings.

But as usual, by the time I got the iPhone ready, they had moved away. They had a tussle with the local crows.

The freezing fog kept me indoors today. But it’s starting to feel a lot more like Christmas.

Sometimes it’s not possible to think of something insightful or interesting to say. Sunday involved a late start, I put up the Christmas tree, meditated and ran 5k.

But I am grateful for everything, including a fantastic sunset and Christmas dinner take-away. 🏃🏃‍♀️ 📷

It’s -1° so a good night for the fire and an opportunity to try out Spectre, a slow shutter app from the makers of Halide.

I’ll keep an eye out for a waterfall of course.
