The mornings are always good when you notice that there is the possibility of a blue sky today. I think it is the first morning there are no remains of the rain to be seen, because we had a dry night. Not that I have anything against rain. We golden oldies with a garden now enjoy the rain as it means we do not have to spend valuable time watering the garden. because it waters itself. It seems the summer will be returning next week with nice heat wave temperatures: another reason to complain about the weather, too hot and uncomfortable and close the windows to keep the heat out.
In the meanwhile we are now builder free until Wednesday for an extended week-end. Tuesday is 1st August which is the Swiss national day and so no working. It only happens once a year, and so all good Swiss families will be celebrating by perhaps having a grill party in the garden and letting off fireworks. We will not be celebrating, we celebrate daily all sorts of things, like being retired and every day is 1st August for us. All good Swiss cats and dogs will be hiding somewhere to escape the flash bangs of the event.
Talking of cats, Mr. Swiss and I were driving home from our shopping excursion yesterday and in the distance saw this brave feline crossing the road, so I took an action photo. He got to the other side safely. Cats lead dangerous lives as they appear from nowhere, but always have a aim to go somewhere. Perhaps that is why they have 9 lives. I am glad our Tabby keeps to the familiar paths where we live, although she is now an elderly lady and prefers to observe instead of participating.
I have been leading a secluded life this week, but did not really have the energy to go places and see things. After having my ears syringed by the doc on Tuesday due to a waxworks that cut off my hearing facilities, I decided that was enough adventure for the week. What a boring life I lead.
Mr. Swiss will be on a quest this morning in the supermarket and I will stay at home like the dutiful housewife I am, cleaning, ironing and cooking. Enjoy the week-end, and make the most of the two free days you might have. If you are bored then look in on Twitter. I am sure someone somewhere will make a tweet about something important to the world.
