A normal morning photo after the bread has been deposited for the birds in the morning. The magpies arrive as soon as possible to have a good choice before the crows take over. Magpies do not have such large beaks as the crows, so only manage up to 2 pieces of bread at once. The crows are experts, they can carry at least 3-4 pieces. Afterwards they fly off. I do no know what they do with the bread, but probably had a special nest for food reserves.
Week-end shopping day today and Mr. Swiss did mention that I could drive both ways today. Perhaps he might have fogotten in the meanwhile, I hope. I have at last got an appointment with my hairdresser this afternoon and this time they are letting me out on my own with the car. Somehow I find this is getting a little too much with driving the car everywhere, but the popular idea is for me to get back into the routine. It was so nice to sit next to my chauffeur and take photos as he was driving. Now I do not even take the camera with me, although this afternoon I am in town and will see if I find something interesting and take the camera.
I have now begun to ignore some of the daily prompt subjects on WordPress. You get one word, and often I get no inspiration. How much of one’s private life can you divulge? Eventually you also run out of facts and I do not want to bring “fake news” which seems to be fashionable in some parts of the world today or write about something that has nothing to do with the prompt, which does not really bother me, but perhaps others. I decided to do my own thing, which may not be always interesting, but more interesting than writing 5-600 words about “squat” which was yesterday’s word. Golden Oldies do not squat, as in all probabilitiy they have to remain squatting until someone helps to put them back on their feet. Of course you can be a squatter taking over an empty house, but that is no longer fashion and aso I decided that squat was not an inspiring subject to write about. It now depends on the word. In any case I noticed that the pingback of this prompt was out of order for a few hours, so I did not miss anything.
And now I am moving to the daily chores. I have an appartment to organise from the day before, and I have to measure my sugar just before leaving for the shopping tour. The Swiss goverment now demands it from me, as I have reached the age of 70, have diabetes and must carry my sugar status with me when driving. I know it is silly, but it is the law and we all want to abide by the law. Those measuring plastics are not cheap, although my insurance does pay for 90% of the costs.
Time to go, enjoy the day.
