Just a thread were you can tell us all the things that you done any given day of the week. We all suffer from anxiety, depression and other forms of Lord knows what else. So leaving that aside in this thread, maybe share one of two things you done during your day.

At the moment I am building a model of Wembley Stadium. That can take a few hours of my day up. But also picked up another model of another football stadium for when I finish the current one. Weather is not great in Ireland at the minute. Is getting colder and who knows when the rain will show up. But I always like to try and get a walk in. Just to stretch the legs. Not the most exciting day in the World. But I am sure other days will hold other things.

So what about your day?

Thank you for asking about my day. I am reading a mystery novel. I also went to the mall with my daughter to buy her a Halloween costume. She is going to be a bat and looks so adorable. I look forward to taking her trick or treating and see her in the school parade. Along the way, there are alot of trees. The changing colors are beautiful. I also cooked dinner for my family...sausage and pasta.

Today I went to an auto parts store to replace a taillight on my car that stopped working.

Then this afternoon I watched a college football game on TV between the Maine Black Bears and William and Mary, which Maine won.

Clocks went back an hour in Ireland last night. Darker evenings setting in. Nice long walk in the afternoon. Then it was back home for a bit of reading. Relax after the walk. Closing in on 5pm and it is starting to get dark already. Might get the telescope out later. Depends if it stays clear or not. Only bad thing about living where I do is the light pollution. Blocks out most of the night sky.

Now I'm not doing much. Just waiting for the Patriots game on TV later on.

The weather here is miserable and very rainy today so far. But we sort of need the rain.

Good old windy day here today. Cold as well. But still got a walk in. Then had to put a new doorbell up. Other one stopped working a few months back. Then it was book time. Probably listen to some music now for a while before watching Travellers on the laptop. The Netflix series.

I did a bit of cleaning today. I am currently reading a romance novel.. its pretty good. A romance novel with a bit of suspense.. so far so good. In a few hours will be cooking Garlic Parmesan chicken in a few hours.

Hope everyone is having a good day today!!!

Light pollution is were there are far too many city lights that they actually block out the night sky. You can hardly see any stars on a clear night.

The rain continues to fall here. The story of the last few weeks. Just finished another model. Another football stadium. One thing building them. Another thing finding somewhere to pit them. Good bit of reading done yesterday. Then I listen to music. Relax for a while. Below is a picture of the two football stadiums I have done over the past 2 weeks. Now I will move onto something else. On the left is Wembley Stadium and on the right is White Heart Lane. Fun to build is you like a challenge. Other than that they would probably wreck your head.

Nice @Cuchculan ! Those look cool. I've never had the patience for that sort of thing. Nice work.

Thanks @bin_tenn My latest model arrived today. Got it half price. Bloody size of it. This should be fun. A crane. Only it is about hip height. Like you would see on a construction site. Over 800 parts in the box and a motor. I look forward to the challenge of building it.

Actually managed to get out today. Rain held off for a while. We have a boil water notice in place in Dublin. Not that anybody would actually drink tap water in this country. Bought a few extra large bottles. Home for some reading and then some music.

Got out for a good while today. Forecast is for lots of rain. Happy to have just gotten out and about. Bought four books when out. Can never have enough books. Then I opened the latest model I bought. I like to arrange the various colours into different ziplock bags. Happens with some models. You might have four main colours. First day I split them all up. Then second day when I begin to build the pieces are easier to find. Want a black piece, go the bag with all the black pieces. When they arrive, it is over 800 pieces of all colours in one big bag. Nightmare to find some pieces if you don't split them up into the colours. Model tip for anybody. Saves time once you start to build the model.

@sheilacj1 thank you very much. That is how I like to relax. With the rain we are having here today I can see myself sitting down and model building later in the day. Crazy weather out there. But that is Ireland for you. The land of rain and even more rain on top of the other rain.

It was a rainy day here in Arkansas! :) I cleaned and prepared my home for Thanksgiving guests! Cleaning helps distract me.

Sitting at my office, boss not there, relaxing . It's 3.45 here at Mumbai, it rained in the morning so cool weather.
I am doing my MA in Pol Science, so when I leave my office at around 6, I'll have to read as the exams are next month.

I volunteered at an agricultural farm today like I do most Fridays.

Fortunately, I worked in the cellar of the farmhouse. Working outside would have been a challenge, as it's cold and windy here in Maine today.

Today was my last day in Indianapolis for work. Riding home now. Still about three and a half hours to go, about a 5hr drive total.
