Daily Prompt: Simplify

Mistletoe 21.01.2p18

Mistletoe simplifies its life. The seeds just arrive on a tree by wind and grow, No Problem, they do not have to search for food or care, the host tree does it all.

I also try to simplify everything I do, why complicated when it can be easier. I am now challenged to simplify normal life procedures, having one less leg availble since I broke it. However, it can only get better.

This afternoon was the big outing to the doc to have the stitches removed. I managed quite well with my new walking machine and Mr. Swiss accompanied me. The doc was waiting for me and there were no complicated manoevres with lying on a couch. I could remain seated and the doc did it all from the side. There were two groups of stitches, it was the last stitch in the row which wanted to attach itself to my body and refused to go. However eventually there was a tug and success and now I am stitch free and plaster free. I am so glad, life is gradually getting back to how it should be.

And now I am going to simplify my life this afternoon and call it a day. This convalesecence life can get very exhausting and I need to relax.

Daily Prompt: Simplify

Good Morning


Being limited in my movement at the moment, my new photos are only from my observation platform in the appartment. In the morning it is the breakfast table in the kitchen. Suddenly there was movement outside and the crows and magpies came for their daily treat that we throw out on the lawn.  I grabbed my mobile phone camera and shot a few photos from a distance, hoping for capture. One of the photos showed two crows departing, so it was a lucky shot. Not exactly worth a Pulitzer, but something different.

Many say you should not feed birds with bread, but I still do. My bread if freshly cut and within a few minutes usually tranported to the bird kingdom to be eaten.

So what are we doing today? Not very much actually. I try to keep up my routine as much as possible. Mr. Swiss wanted to get my breafast ready, but I told him I would do it. He is very helpful, but I am still trying to maintin as much of my active life as possible.  Today he will be attacking the week-end shopping on his own. A list has been composed . I so wish I could go with him. I am slowly getting cabin fever cooped up at home with a broken leg.

This afternoon I am off to the docs to have the stitches removed. I am still trying to work that one out. Mr. Swiss will drop me off and whilst he is parking the car I will make my way to the surgery. There will be a few steps to overcome with my walker, although there might be a ramp somewhere. It’s funny how the world seems to be out to get you when your abilities are no longer what they should be.


In the meanwhile one of the crows returned to see if there was anything left of the morning feast.

We had some snow yesterday but it has now disappeared again. It has been a strange Winter this year, a Winter that just did not want to be. I was looking through my photos and discovered on a few of our snowy landscape taken a week before Christmas.

Since we have had nothing worth mentioning.

And now to move on, although I am not sure where to. Enjoy your day, see you around.
