A Walk Up to Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven

MEADOWS UP THE HILL...

Our calories from the lunch was soon burnt when we walked up the hill leading to the Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven.  Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress build in the 15th and 16th centuries, located upon a rocky headland on the northeastern coast of Scotland, 3 kilometers from Stonehaven.

This time round, we used another way to walk up the hill, it was around 3pm then and very chilly.  Days are shorter now, it could grow dark anytime around 4pm onwards.  So we have an hour to make our way up and down the hill, walking on the grass pathway up, leading us to mesmerizing scenery of the cliffs and the sea below....
The meadow walkers... 

This is the way we went up the hilly... 
The stairs leading to the Dunnottar Castle... 
It was a long way.. the long and winding stairway...
No, we did not go there... 
We just passed it by.... 
And came to this part of the cliff instead.... 
Nice... breathtaking... 
We stood up here and let the wind blew into our faces... 
*Yeah, have to be careful that I don't get blown away too!*
We could hear the waves splashing about below...
Our shadows making our presence here... 
And then we made our way back to our car....
The sun is setting down at around 4pm... 
Getting the feel of the cold... 
Yes, this is a Good Walk!
Would love to come back again soon!!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
