Look what is happening in my little part of the world. Yes, it began to snow about an hour ago. The ground is cold so now it will probably remain with us today. How glad I am that I do not have to go anywhere in particular. We are stocked up with enough food until tomorrow, so we will not starve. Even my birds have enough to eat. We dragged another 5 Kg bag of food home for them yesterday. Am I glad that I no longer have to go to a workplace.
My rosemary is now completely covered in the white stuff.
Yesterday I eventually did it. I ordered my new iPhone X. The delivery date is about 2 weeks, although the guy at the store said they no longer have such long waiting times. Why does a golden oldie do such weird stuff? Little things please little minds and I love learning all this modern stuff. Now I just have to look at my new phone to switch it on it seems. Mr. Swiss muttered something about an iTunes backup to prepare for the installation of my new phone, so I will gladly let him do the necessary. He left me on my own with the guy in the store and took a walkabout around the mall and I began to get confused. I was being asked all sorts of questions about our phone supplier, whether we have this or that. I had to call Mr. Swiss to help me out. There are some things that are just a little above my head and all in Swiss German. Of course I understand the language, but sometimes it gets a little complicated.
The next big arrival on my list will be my wheelchair which means a lot to me. I can walk, although need support with my cane. Since my two falls outside I have become very uncertain. My left leg decides to separate itself from my body without telling me about it first and suddenly you are down without a possibility of standing up again independently. Mr. Swiss is nervous about letting me into the garden, and to be quite honest so am I. I am now suffering from cabin fever. At home there are no large spaces to get lost in, but outside it is a different problem. Going to the supermarket gets me out of the house and I have a trolley to hang onto, but taking walks with my camera no longer comes into the question. A zimmer frame could also be a solution, but not for me. I want my independence and I do not want to have to rely on others. Taking photos with a zimmer frame for support is not ideal for me, so I go the whole hog. I can now change lens in comfort without searching for a bench and I can also take my extra lens with me.
It seems Mr. Trump (President – no I do not think so, you have to deserve that title) has put his big foot in it again with a Tweet, and is now telling GB to solve its problems. There is a pending invitation for this idiot to visit Britain, but nothing has been arranged up to now.
And now to my little world. I will be pottering around, might clean a few windows for the lack of something more intelligent to do. I leave you with a photo taken by me from the car, of our local mountain Weissenstein, this time in the snow.
