Whilst half the wold seem to be sinking in snow, Switzerland is snow free in the lowlands, even the sun is shining. It was time to shake off my Winter hibernation and do things completely different. I was sinking into a routine. I was getting lazy. It is easy to sit at a computer and do the same thing at the same time every day, but I had no big choice. Outside it was cold and roads and paths were for me impassable. However, yesterday morning the sun was shining, there was no snow and I do not feel the cold so much in any case. I do not even own a pullover, a t-shirt does it nicely and my coat is warm.
Yesterday morning I decided was the day to break out, see something else than a computer and so I did it in the afternoon. Mr. Swiss decided to come with me. The first thing I saw on the path was the good old bench. It has been there since I can remember, although I think they renew it now and again. I have taken photos of this bench where you can hardly see it for the sea of long grass covering it, but at the moment the grass is only thinking about growing.
It was really good to breathe the fresh air and see something else. After an hour we returned, so I spent the next hour uploading photos – the results of my walk. Mr. Swiss was busy catching up on the results of the voting day in Switzerland on the TV.
I even saw a Eurasien blue tit hanging onto its food ball in front of the kitchen window. They are a common visitor here, but this year I have not seen so many.
Today is Monday, so off to the supermarket. Mr. Swiss has decided I will drive home and I am still thinking about it. Actually it is all part of my new Spring action plan, to go for more walks, drive more and get around to going to the hairdresser which is really necessary. It is overdue for some time. It is a case of taking the phone in hand and making an appointment. I can now even take the car and go on my own. There is also a letter from the dentist waiting to see me. My last visit was many months ago, when I lost a small piece of tooth from a filling. It was so small the job was done in half an hour and I did not even need an injection. At the moment my teeth feel fine and are behaving nicely, but I should have my annual scraping session with the dentist. It is not pleasant, especially when the drill is in the vicinity of a nerve, but afterwards you feel like you have a new teeth construction and seem to have more room in your mouth – all in the mind of course. I will get round to that as well in the next couple of weeks and then I have done it all. This all means taking the car for the action, but the doc gave me the go ahead last week, so what could possibly go wrong.
I am even a little earlier this morning. Mr. Swiss could not find our Tabby the cat and was worried she had taken a walk and not returned. I promptly found her when I shook her cushion at the top of the wardrobe and she showed he head, being rudely awoken, with a look as if to say “What’s the fuss”.
Monday is the beginning to a new week, although as a golden oldie I have to check on the calendar to see if it is really Monday.
See you around.
