I am almost ashamed to show our morning sky. Day for day it begins with grey and it is a lottery whether it stays or might disperse during the morning. I decided on a sky from yesterday afternoon as I left our estate on wheels for a short excursion. These excursions are now almost becoming a regular thing except for Monday Afternoon and Wednesday, when I have housewife hobbies to attend to.
I am now more out and about than I used to be. Going for walks with my stick was becoming exhausting and there was always the danger that I might fall. Now I feel safe and secure, although crossing roads is always a bump when you go down and up the curbs. Most are sloped for wheels, but not all. I used to register the various benches in the area. Now I register the best places to cross the road.
Before I leave Mr. Swiss wants to know my route, sometimes I do not even know which way I am gloing myself. Yesterday I headed for the cemetery: a nice flat path until you get inside. Then I meet the lumps and bumps caused by the stones and grit on the paths,
I am becoming a regular cemetery visitor, but it lays on my path to other places. I often see the same people walking through. Actually my mother-in-law is in this part of the cemetery. When I leave the cemetery I enter a path known as stony alley, although it is not stony at all, but ideal for travel with wheels. This is the part where I meet the horses.
There was only one of them outside with a pony who was busy munching pine needles. The other horses were probably taking 5 somewhere. It is also the part where I change my lens to zoom. It reduces the effect of the fencing in between and I get a better portrait of the chickens opposite.
They now have a house on wheels which can be moved around to enable them a change of scenery. Of course when the chickens saw me they all rushed to be featured in photo of the day.
Afterwards I rolled on to the home stretch: again across the bumpy kerbs on the main road. I usually am a cause for the traffic to stop rolling when they see me coming. When I arrive at the entrance to my appartment I call Mr. Swiss on my mobile telephone to open the door. I could do it myself but is is complicated as I would have to stand and open the door myself and roll in on my wheels after propping the door open. This time I forgot to take my gloves with me an my hands were two blocks of ice, especially the fingers. I noticed a call from Mr. Swiss on my mobile when I arrived to tell me I had forgotten my gloves, but did not hear it as I had my telephone on mute. I should remember to demute when I leave home.
And now to move on. I have something I want to start for dinner that can cook during the morning. Keep safe everyone and wrap up warm if you are North of the equator. Take the sun creme with you if you are South of the Equator. If you are on the equator, then you might need am umbrella – rain forests and all that. I leave you with a view of our local castle Waldegg that I saw on my way to the chicken run.
