This is not this morning’s clouds as at the moment there are no clouds. The day again begins in grey. I decided to take a drive (wheelchair) down to the river yesterday afternoon and this was the sky as I approached.
It was a first time for me on wheels to the river and probably not so often. The ride was bumpy, over stock and stone, but I did it, which was the main thing. I was reminded again that I should not visit the river on Sunday afternoon’s. It develops into a people’s march and I was overtaken by bikers and wannabe athletes. There were also the family excursions with their children who seemed to regard me as an oddity on wheels and had a good stare before moving on. Of course there were dogs, although the dogs do their own thing.
This canine was trotting behind its owner with a wooden remant of a tree in its mouth. The guy that the dog was leading was toally enthralled when he saw me taking the photo and the dog was as well I am sure.
There were many tree remains lying around left from the path of our storm Burglind/Eleanor. It seemed to be the biggest problem in Switzerland at the moment and in our Kanton alone 100,000 cubic meters of felled wood were laying in the forests
Of course there were a few ducks and even one swan floating on the river.
My usual hour journey develped into two hours this time unintentionally. I got a little carried away about how far I could go and realised that I had taken a path of no good return and wheelchairs are not the fastest carriages on the paths. I eventually arrived home and was greeted by the remark whether I had planned to go to Zürich. Of course not, at the best of times my range is 40 kilometers and that would only bring me to Bern.
Today is a normal Monday again, something that has become quite rare since the season’s holidays. I can go shopping without storing food for the days when the shops are closed for holidays and we can eat normally. No luxury food, but plain normal home cooking: probably a plate of pasta with a sausage or slice of meat. Vegetable is a matter of choice, but having No. 1 son at the table it is restricted to non-green vegetables. He is allergic to green veg meaning that my beloved brussel sprouts are a no go. Today there will be no excursions with my new toy, as now and again I have housewife hobbies to attend to at home.
I wish everyone a good day, full of good things. If they are bad you can always tune into the computer. Facebook is good place to visit, because you realise that no longer how negative life is, there are far more negative things to cope with. Facebook is slowly becoming a list of negative influences in life.
At the moment we are being attacked by the Sahara. Mr. Swiss just told me to look outside where everything is bathed in a yellow light. I grabbed my mobile phone camera and took a picture. It seems it is Sahara sand that is infiltrating our pure Swiss air, how dare they. On the other hand it makes a good photo. Everything is glowing with a yellow shine.
