Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?

FridgeThis photo is from 2014, but nothing very much has changed since.Perhaps there is now only one pack of milk in the fridge door as I now avoid milk where I can. I used to take cereal with milk in the morning for breakfast and drink coffee, but discovered that there is a lactose allergy hovering around and it is better for me to avoid it. Otherwise my fridge is usually quite tidy. Week-ends there is more, but no problem. I have a separate freezer, beneath my normal fridge and also a second fridge now in the cellar. A fridge is no longer such a luxury to have, and I need a place to keep my MS injection supplies as I have to order once a month. The second fridge is in my laundry room/wine cellar where I really have enough room to keep it. The tidy organisation of the fridge is thanks to Mr. Swiss. Now and again he has a few mad moments and  cleans the fridge. I am glad.

Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?

On the grounds of being sensible, does it really matter? I mean when we eat it, the food all arrives in the same place due to the digestive system of the body. On the other hand I suppose we also eat with the eye and having salad mixed up with boiled potatoes and fried fish would not be so appetising. I am responsible for serving the food, and I do tend to put the various items separately on the plate. What the others do with it when they are eating is no longer my problem. I am basically a separated eater, taking one thing at a time on the fork. However, if it is boiled ham with veg (like cabbage or beans) I tend to mix it on the fork. Sauce or gravy relies on being mixed, as far as I am concerned. The sauce hollandaise would be disappointed if it did not meet the asparagus on the plate.

Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?

If you can upload it on a Kindle, read it. No coffee table books. I like to get into a fictional story, preferably with a touch of mystery, a little bit of ghost now and again, murders, and drama. I do not mind non fiction if the subject interests. Magazines are OK, but not just any magazine. Cooking magazines, photography, computer – although most of them I read online. If the person is intersting than a biography is OK. I read about 3 biographies about Giuseppe Garibaldi (an Italian freedom fighter), Fidel Castro (another rebel) and was General Patton killed or was it an accident? Anything like that can be fascinating. Oh, I read it all, I do not read, I devour books.

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?

No thankyou, my body tells me things that I prefer not to know since I am a golden oldie.

“Hey, it’s your nervous system speaking, our top layer is disintegrating – do something about it” (an injection every second day for MS).

Your digestive system sending a message, “do not eat Sauerkraut”. I agreed and no longer eat sauerkraut. I quite like it but my digestive system does not.

“It’s your brain calling, time for a sleep.” “OK will do. Anyone else with a problem?”

“Nose here” – “oh shuttup, I had enough of your sneezy antics last week, let’s forget them for a while.”

Your see I have everything under control – or?

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I think I will have to pass. I did not win in the lottery last week, and this week I should get around to doing things that I should do for some time. There is a dentist appointment to make – nothing serious, just a tooth inspection to see that they are still doing what they should. My hair tells me to have a hair cut, and tomorrow I have a doc visit to make. Oh the life of a golden oldie is never boring.

  1. I only listen to whatever hurts the most at the moment. I try to ignore the rest. Right now, it’s that bum shoulder that wants me to do NOTHING at all with my right arm. I’m still typing. I should quit typing.

    • I do not have problems with pain as such, more aches. I had a talk with my neurologist this morning, and asked when the miracle cure will be arriving for MS. He did not exactly laugh,but confimed there is nothing on the horizon at the moment.


    • I can take tablets for my diabetes, but my son had to inject insulin for a few months. Now no longer. He gave me a few tips before I began to inject, but I have to mix my injections before injecting. It is not a “pen” but a genuine syringe.
