Good Morning

Clouds 26.12 (9)

This morning’s early sky? No, definitely not, we are still submitted to a cloudless sky with its more than 50 shades of grey.  This photo is from yesterday afternoon, so I shot a few photos before the clouds and sun disappeared for another month. I was surprised and happy when I stopped hugging my bed after yesterday’s after lunch sleep and discovered the sun again. I thought it had left us almost forever, but strange things are happening in the weather sky.

Today it will be dry and bright, am not yet sure about the sun, but we can hope. Tomorrow evening it will begin to snow throughout the night and on Friday: just in time for the New Year shopping marathon, but we will survive. The big surprise is the week-end when temperatures of 10°C are expected meaning 50° Fahrenheit for those that have another system. Yes, Spring returns at the week-end and perhaps the daffoldils will begin to flower. On the other hand next week may bring snow.

We now have the happy holidays behind us and I am happy, very happy because I found the lost day. I was convinced that the shops would still be closed today, but I forgot Wednesday that appears between Tuesday and Thursday. Of course they will let me out again today for a trip to the supermarket. Most people dislike shopping, even Mr. Swiss, but for me it is a chance to go places and see things and perhaps take some photos on the way.


I was really convinced yesterday that I only had one day to plan the New Year Food, but I am already half way into the cloud shopping list shared with Mr. Swiss. Now and again he adds something and I add something. I even illustrate my part of the list with little pictures of food supplied by my iPhone text which Mr. Swiss finds amusing but perhaps a little juvenile: little things please little minds.

Today I could even read the local newspaper again online. It disappeared over the holidays, but I also discovered that not very much spectacular in our area has happened. Even the national newspapers have nothing special to report.

Breakfast Table

I have now finished my breakfast feast (bread and jam) and am drinking the remains of my cup of tea. I will now depart for a journey into the unknown with a vacuum cleaner and mop. Look after yourselves and enjoy a non-stress day. I will be back with new tales from the depths of Switzerland.

  2. Your sky looks pretty with the white clouds and the dark blue sky. It’s awfully cold here. I have nothing planned for New Year’s at all. I suppose I should think about that. We’ve got hospital for Garry tomorrow, so maybe I’ll pick something up at the grocery on the way home. But what? Hmm.

    • The pretty sky was Tuesday afternoon for a couple of hours. Since then the blue has disappeaed and we are back to grey. New Year means nothing really to me. My No. 1 son will probably go into town but it will be just mr and Mr. Swiss. We don’t even bother with a glass of champagne at midnight. A bit of grocery done yesterday and the rest tomorrow, but no big deal. We have already planned the meals, now just have to buy them.
