Still walking... Tried to put "other things" aside again today, and went for a walk to get the most out of another beautiful autumn day. One never quite knows if it will be the last!

There were quite a few other people out walking in the park and along the river on this lovely day (even if I managed to keep my distance and even to keep most of them out of my photos). Actually, I think there were even more people visiting graveyards today, though - as is the tradition here for Halloween/All Saints. (So today I chose not to walk across the old cemetery where I walk often enough anyway - including yesterday.)
Besides the fine weather, another reason for all the people out walking today may be that the region of Sweden where I live (Västra Götaland) is back on a tighter leash again, when it comes to corona restrictions. (Together with -so far- four other densely populated regions, which in total means about half the population of the whole country.) So... Once again, there is not really all that much left to do except to go for walks (which is encouraged, as long as we keep distance). As for shopping, it's okay to visit grocery shops and pharmacies, but we're strongly advised to stay away from big shopping malls etc, and also from museums and other such places that tend gather a lot of people. On the whole we're supposed to limit the number of people we spend time with (esp indoors) as much as possible - preferably to "the people we live with".
Well, "me, myself & I" have pretty much been doing that for nine months already... Without blogging and some other online contacts, it would probably drive me nuts. (Possibly it already has, without me really noticing until I fell down the rabbit hole to the health care labyrinth lately.)
While certain aspects of the internet sometimes annoy me too, I was reminded again the other day to feel very grateful for it, when I had a phone call from a friend who has neither a computer nor a smartphone...
