Good Morning

Road to Langendorf 15.01 (9)

No actual photos today, but a view of one of the local monasteries, behind the brick wall. You realise how much you depend on the modern technics whan they do not work. I can tell you we have heavy grey clouds in the sky and nothing new on the Swiss front. We have been bombarded by wind storms over the past week. Trees fell and railway lines were blocked. Three storms, one after the other, visited Europe causing even the railway systems of Holland and Germany to completely close down.

Now it seems “normal” weather will prevail, whatver that is. It does tend to weigh on your mood. Since Monday morning I have not left my home. Wednesday would have been the morning where they let me out to go shopping, but a tooth intervened: not mine but that of Mr. Swiss and he had to pay an unplanned visit to the dentist to have it removed, combining it with the shopping. The patient survived, the tooth is now history and things are more or less back to normal. Teeth always play surprises. One day you can munch meat, nuts and all sorts of solid food and then some time a tooth somewhere in your biting mechanism, says leave me alone. Toothache is a persistant thing, arriving when you least expect it and the pain is monotonous and never ending. You are sure it will go away and it might for a few minutes but it returns with a vengence. At least that has been my experience in the past. Luckily our dentist is not far away and they can always fit these emergency sessions in somewhere.

Today they will let me out to go shopping. The week-end shopping list has been completed so now it is action time. I seem to be wasting my time at the moment. Yesterday evening I really intended to read further in my newest book, “Mr. Mercedes” by Stepen King, but first of all I completed my online jigsaw puzzle which took longer than I thought. In the meanwhile my favourite and only soap on TV, Eastenders began so I continued with my jigsaw puzzle and multiple tasked with the TV. In the meanwhile my washing was finished. Mr. Swiss collected it from the laundry room in the cellar and I hung it up. Afterwards I was ready to read, but I got some messages via cyberspace, answered them on my iPad and realised there was now only half an hour left for a reading session and it would be my bedtime.

I am not a very happy bunny at the moment. My photo programme is not working and time is disappearing, so II must move on. I just hope that today brings just a little bit of exciement and perhaps even better weather. Keep safe, see you around.

    • My garden had no problems, but the area around our village, especially in the forests, were full of broken branches. Our local workers were quickly at work, but there was a lot of damage,

  1. I have gotten out very rarely since winter started, but to be fair, that’s not unusual here. I don’t do well on slippery ground, so until it melts and the ground is dry, I’m very wary of going out. But the weather is warming up, or so we are told, so hopefully by the weekend, it’s going to be walkable.

    • We still have winter, despite the snowless days, but you are lucky if you can get out in Winter. It can rain and be very unfriendly. At the moment I am making the most of what I can. I was out today, but the weather prophets tell me that the week-end is a no go. Walking so far does not come into the question for me. I am luckily not to be dependent on a wheel chair, but I no longer have the staying power for longer than 10 minutes, and I am very slow.
