Good Morning

Sparrows 13.01 (20)

The snow came and went, and returned which is the story of our life in the last three days. It even rained on the snow for a night and half a day, and we saw green grass again.


I took this photo five minutes ago outside with my mobile phone  camera and it is snowing again. I have already said I have no problems now with snow as I used to., when I had to go out. Yesterday was my last trip and the snow was OK. Today I am glad I do not have to go anywhere, but Mr. Swiss does. We decided on a cheese fondue for the evening meal, and that only tastes good with fresh bread. We like to have one of those white french breads with it. The long bread that you see every second person in Paris walking around with. I think they only buy them to be the perfect example of a Parisien, together with the beret on their head.

Anyhow Mr. Swiss will now take it upon him to battle his way through the snow to buy our bread. He already had problems this morning going out in the garden to fill up the bird feeders. He has been missing his special Yeti snow boots for some time and found that my garden clogs were not ideal for fighting his way through snow drifts. He took to extreme measures and I saw him with a ladder at our garden cupboard. Eureka, he said, when he found the snow boots, although they were not at the top of the cupboard, but hidden behind something else. He was then Scott of the Swiss Antarctic as he risked life and limb to feed the birds – what a man! He returned safely and made the decision that he would not go to the supermarket with the car this morning, far too risky on the roads, even if it is Switzerland where everything is perfect. He will go to town, with the local train – safer and less risky. The search than began for our train tickets as he was sure we had some spare. He found one ticket, but it was no longer valid, yes it was. Success – today was its last day of being valid. Our problems are solved and the cheese fondue is rescued.

I seem to be getting in the mood again for organising. I have my camer(s) on the top shelf in a cupboard which is OK. I have my various lens in a large box next to the cameras. I have decided to get rid of the box to make more room and arrange my various accessories also on the shelf. I also have my handbag on this shelf and so there will be more room for everything. Yes I am an expert in logistic. I have now also sorted my various files for my photos. It seems golden oldies have nothing better to do than sort stuff.

I also have a tray with pendent invoices to pay and other official stuff which I must say I had neglected lately. I checked through and found no open bills,  but I did find the letter from the motor department of our Kanton reminding me that as I am now 70 years old, I should make an appointment with my doctor for the driving health test. I have a couple of weeks time still. This will be fun. I will have to walk backwards in a straight line – I cannot even walk forwards in a straight line. I no longer drive in any case, and leave it to Mr. Swiss, although he finds it a shame when I cannot drive, so I will probably have to go through this test. Our neighbour still drives and she is now 90. Her husband no longer drives, but he is a couple of years older than she is. I suppose if she can pass the test, so can I. My doctor told me I should have no problem.

And now to walk around the appartment. My vaccum cleaner does not need a test, it does not mind if I cannot walk as straight as I should, it does the work in any case.

May your day be filled with sunshine, snowless roads, and fun. My day began with the noise from the snow plough outside.

    • I will go for the test, and see what happens. I don’t drive now, so it would make no difference. On the other hand, you never know when it would be important to drive the car – I am a bit in between with this test thing.
