Good Morning

Clouds 28.07 (2)

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.

Road to Langendorf 28.07 (15)

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.

    • Believe it or not, but I am amongst the tweeters. Perhaps I should be more adventurous with my tweets, but I only retweet my blogs from WordPress. You never know who might read them and get inspiration from them. Wouldn’t we love to know where Donald goes shopping for his hair dye.

  1. Re: the wax issue you spoke about. When I was only 16 years old, one ear plugged up and I was greatly mystified. The ear doctor took out a wax plug about 1-2 inches long. I was totally shocked. At 16. How could my body do this?

    • One of natures ways of telling us that we also produce wax. My son has to have it done at least once a year. It was entirely my own fault digging around in my ears with those cotton wool buds. The last time I had to have it done was at least 25 years ago.


  2. I live in dread of our dogs decided to go hiking. There are far too many very fast drivers and a small dog is an easy target. We live a couple of hundred feet from the road and the dogs could head down into the woods where there’s nothing to harm them but other animals, but they ALWAYS head up the driveway to the road. Why IS that?

    • We are lucky that our cats never had interest in the main road and stayed in their ur area. I don’t know if dogs have a homing sense like cats. Our blind cat would take all sorts of risk. I was sure ha had some sort of guardian cat that watched over him.
