A Winter Walk, and a Virus!
Olga and I went to the Heath yesterday, where although it's not particularly cold, things are looking quite wintry. She's pausing above in the same spot where I shot this photo (top), for example -- quite a seasonal difference!
We found a brightly colored log that looks like someone's art project. Olga was loving the dried leaves piled around it.
I'm not sure it's technically permitted to paint a log in Hampstead Heath, but maybe it is. I do like the dreamy, colorful abstract approach!
Otherwise, yesterday was all about reading, relaxing and doing housework. I wish I had another day like yesterday -- I feel like I lost half my weekend with all my activities on Saturday. And now, off to another work week!
On a side note, I woke this morning to find that apparently I've been infected with a virus! Not the biological kind, but the technological kind. My e-mail was sending out spam links of its own accord and I even had a spam link posted to my blog! THAT did not make me happy. So I changed my passwords and hopefully I've curtailed that activity.
I wonder how on earth I got it? I never click on mysterious links, open peculiar e-mails or download unknown programs. But this illustrates another problem with my 4 1/2-year-old computer -- now that Apple no longer supports my operating system, I can't do security updates. Clearly some worm has found a weak spot. (I always heard Apples weren't vulnerable to viruses, too, so that's an interesting situation...)
