More constrast in today’s morning sky. Yesterday it was another grey morning/day and nothing was happening in the sky. Today looks like more action and it is very cold. Tomorrow it will probably rain so our painter only has today to finish the last wall before he eventually waves goodbye. The workers are now going one by one. I noticed one of the neighbours has had to have its complete garden re-done due to the destruction from builders’ boots. Yesterday they moved in with a power shovel and removed all the earth. Today it goes further. We are still waiting for our tiles to be replaced. We are having the same tiles as before and decided not to invest in special super sized tiles as a replacement. I am too old for something completely different and prefer to spend my money or something more rewarding.
Our birdhouse is becoming quite popular amongst the bird population and since it is in front of my window I can get much better photos. The birds sit in the branches of the trees opposite in my garden and fly over to collect a seed. They afterwards return to their perch in the tree and enjoy the food. There is a coming and going all day. I was surprised as I thought it might be too near the window, but food is always a good excuse to take a risk. I think the birds with the yellow feathers are tits. You never see them during the summer but as soon as the colder weather arrives they settle in our garden for food. And I just saw the first robin of the Winter. He hopped into my garden at the edge. Robins do not mix so much with the other birds and like to keep themselves to themselves. I was not quick enough for a photo unfortunately.
The sparrows like to pick around on the ground, they are the garbage birds probably, eating the remains.
I am getting nearer to my dream iPhone X. Mr. Swiss enquired in the local shop and they said 1-2 weeks will be the delivery time, although I will probably wait a little longer until the big rush is over.
Today is week-end shopping day again, time goes quickly when you are a golden oldie. No. 1 son has decided to go on an excursion to Geneva tomorrow, a 2 hour train ride from where we live. He does not speak French, the Geneva language, but in Geneva you can get through easily with english, which he can speak. I visited Geneva some years ago around Chrstmas wanting to visit the United Nations building, but only saw it at the end of the entrance path. It was closed for holidays, the english speaking guard told me at the gate.
This means the golden oldie couple will be alone for Saturday lunch, an opportunity to eat brussel sprouts. We both like them, but No. 1 son will not eat them.
I must now move on to complete my Friday morning duties. I will be on my way later to the supermarket, armed with my online cloud shopping list, connected to Mr. Swiss phone. If you see a golden oldie couple wandering around a supermarket with phones in their hand stopping now and again to delete items, you know why.
Enjoy your Friday, the last day before the week-end.
