What is your favorite comfort snack food?
At the moment the banana, if the fly does not get there first. Sorry about him, but I was just trying out my new macro lens and he arrived at the right moment. I can be glad to be able to eat anything that does not remind me I have eaten it half an hour afterwards at the moment. I have learnt to avoid certain things that have a negative influence on my digestive organs. All milk products, with the exception of hard cheese, my beloved cranberry juice of which I drank a third of a glass every evening and any sort of salted nuts or similar. I am actually on a discovery journey to find what it is that I should not eat. When I am finished I will be the skeleton sitting in the corner wondering if there is anything I can eat without having a problem. My doc gave me so many mixures of stuff to try and none of it worked. I am now almost 2 weeks free of my body trying to devour me, so I must be on the right way somewhere. There is no such thing as comfort food, just food what the body accepts and leaves you with no bad memories.
Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?
This is the only paper money in my possession at the moment and I only have it in my purse to pay any debts I might have. This is a 100 Swiss Franc note and do not ask me about the guy, Alberto Giacometti, on the note, although I think he was some sort of artist. For example if Mr. Swiss tanks up the car, I give him half. If he goes shopping and forgets to take my post office card, I give him cash afterwards. We have our own financial system as most households. Otherwise I do not deal in paper money, I live on plastic. I have a selection of cards, but use mainly the post office card, now and again the bank card, and very seldom the credit card.
I have become a plastic housewife over the years and I am loving it. I do not even pay my debts in money over the counter, that is all done on the computer. I never sort my notes, if I have them, they are usually creased up in a corner of my purse and I have to take them out and examine them to see what they actually are. The Swiss seem to be producing new notes with different designs regularly. When I entered Switzerland they had lovely notes with mountain flowers, a thing of the past.
If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
If you were a mouse in my house in the evening, you would probably not see anything as this would be your likely fate. Our house cat does not like rivals, and if you can eat them, all the more to make sure their existence is terminated. I think I took this photo a few years ago. Otherwise if a mouse would be where I am, she will hear the tapping of the keyboard on the computer and see the lights of the screen. If she decided to roam into the realm of Mr. Swiss, she would be watching the news on the TV, or pehaps a german criminal programme.
Would you rather not be able to read or not be able to speak?
That depends on who is answering the question. Mr. Swiss finds not being able to speak would be a good answer for me, and I find that speaking is one of my favourite pasttimes. On the other hand we both like reading a book. I think this question meets a dead end and would be a source of negative discussions in the family, so let’s leave it out.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I was grateful that I more or less stayed healthy without any negative allergies to food and that my macro lens arrived.
This week has nothing to look forward to and I really do not need any excitement or unknown events happening at the moment. I like it quiet and peaceful. I forgot, I would like to see a group of butterflies sitting on my flowers in the garden, waiting for their photos to be taken with my new macro lens. I would also like a few spiders, bugs and whatever for the same reason. I like variety in my garden. I would also like to see a bat. A friend has one that lives under the overhang of her roof and she can observe him and what he does. Now that would be an interesting subject for my camera.
I do not think I have left anything out, when you are a golden oldie you tend to forget things.
