This morning I decided to treat myself to a piece of my favourite cake in the supermarket. I have now eaten it and seeing the photo realise I should really clean up my computer now and again. I usually use my Apple computer in the afternoon, but had a photo upload to do on Facebook, and my photos are all my Acer computer.
However, I am now sated. I was also sated yesterday, despite the fact that in Switzerland we were thankful for nothing in particular, it was a day like any other day.
I realise today that being a golden oldie, my body no longer can absorb as much food as it used to. Enough is enough and a plate does me nicely at lunch. In the evening I just eat for the sake of eating, but no longer spend the hours after the evening meal looking for something more. My days of eating potato chips and peanuts throughout the evening have disappeared. I no longer feel that there is something missing in my diet.
As much as I hope everyone across the pond enjoyed their turkeys, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies, I am not sad that I was sitting in Switzerland wondering what to eat in the evening. No. 1 son was not at home and it was only Mr. Swiss and I. Mr. Swiss announced that he would do a help-yourself meal from the fridge in the evening, which developed into an egg fried “sunny-side-up” as one says in the colonies, and I decided something fried would be too much. I found some ham and wedged it between two slices of bread, with some butter on the sides.
In my earlier housewife days I fed 4 children (later only two) and myself and Mr. Swiss every day. I composed meals like a musician, but without the overtures, although sometimes a desert on Sunday. Today I do not know how I did it. I even made cakes in between. Sometimes we even invited other people, and it was not an exception to have 8-10 people at the table. I now have problems cooking the Chrismas evening meal, although it is only Mr. Swiss, me and No. 1 son. Today I saw a few turkeys in the supermarket, but at 50 Swiss francs for one turkey I decided that would not be a good idea. There are few farms that have turkeys in Switzerland, not very many, and I am sure that every Swiss turkey had even a name, how sad.
And now to starve until the evening, or shall I eat a banana. Every ape loves bananas and they are healthy.
