The heading is of course, as you know, is a quotation from the “Bohemian Rhapsody” by “Queen.”
It has been quite a week so far. First, my laptop decided to do some crazy things which I have still not fixed up. I had to reboot my old laptop, which I am using at the moment. Fortunately there were just a few updates that had to be done and now it is going like a Boeing!
One Monday we, here in the Highveld, had quite a rainstorm with all the trimmings, like lightning and lots of booming thunder. Lightning struck a power cable just outside my house. The whole street has not had power since Monday. Thank goodness for the generator. The electricity department give a different excuse every time I call, which makes no sense at all. Fortunately I have a solar panel on the Geyser, because the generator is not strong enough to keep the geyser going too. Only problem is that today the sun isn’t shining that much so I don’t know how much it is going to heat the solar panel up. I might have to take a special extra trip to the gym tonight to use the shower.
It is at times like these though, that cause one to think about gratitude. When I have electricity and everything is running smoothly, I tend to forget that those things are a blessing, and I take that for granted. There is so much to be grateful for. I think I am going to start a little notebook, and take 5 minutes everyday to just jot down what I am grateful for…
