Not that I am beginning to live healthy, but Mr. Swiss decided to buy some grapes yesterday in the supermarket. I am not a big fruit eater really, although lately I always eat a banana every day. My doc said they are healthy and probably good for my internal problems, forgetting that I am also diabetic. I always avoided bananas because of their sugar content, but I am now slowly giving up on eating what you are supposed to eat. What difference does a banana make, apes thrive on them and I have never seen a diabetic chimpanzee, although I suppose they do exist.
The doc also said that grapes were healthy. Another problem, as I always thought that grape sugar shot straight into the blood. If your sugar levels drop grape juice or eating a grape is always a good remedy. My neurologist even told me that I should not read too much in Internet about illnesses, because anyone can print what they want to and you even might begin to believe everything. Who me? Not really, but it often makes interesting reading.
One good thing about grapes, especially the ones no-one wants to eat when beginning to turn brown and soft, is that they are an excellent wasp deterrent. It is now approaching wasp season and they can really make your life a misery when eating outside on the porch, which we do almost every day at the moment. Last year I put a dish on one side on the ground with some grape remainders. The wasps were happy as they had there own special banquet and we were happy because they left us in peace to eat our own meal. Everyone survived. I remember we were once eating some cold meat outside, and a wasp paid a visit to the ham. He was very busy and as I watched I saw him cut a corner of the meat away with his teeth, or whatever he has, and fly away with it holding it in his little feet. Probably they have nesting instincts like birds, and he found a meal for the kids.
Wasps are not such good neighbours to have, especially if you notice they are busy building a comb. You then know that there will be action and they are planning to stay and might even be building a city with a skyscraper silhouette.
Today is a day of rest almost. Nothing special to deal with, just for I, me and myself. I do not plan on going anywhere, and will send Mr. Swiss if I need something from town. I am on a macro camera lens shooting quest. At the moment nothing is safe from my camera. Just had a look at the calendar and it seems that tonight is full moon, so I might just have a go at it. I want craters and not just a yellow blur, although they did predict rain today. I suppose you cannot have everything.
I had a pleansant suprise in the garden yesterday. I was looking for a photo for National Geographic, who have not yet contacted me with a contract and I discovered these two small roses poking up their heads on the border. I tend to buy potted roses during the summer, and when they have served their purpose, I plant them somewhere in the garden. This is a survivor from last year. I know they are not the spectacular wonderful splashes of perfect rose colour, but not everyone grows perfectly, speaking of my own experience, but they all have a right to a photo on my blog.
Have a good day/night, be good or sleep well. See you around in between housework, cooking, ironing, taking photos and other such little hobbies I have to keep my busy and out of mischief.
