Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Words with double letters
This year’s eggplant in the top righthand corner, the new slim variety. I like this sort very much: easier to slice and quicker to cook, especially as an accompanying veg, but I am the only person that likes eggplant.
The last of the physalis in October. Will they return? Watch this space later this year in August and September.
It is the time of restarts and I don’t like restarts very much Yesterday I was sitting at my computer, the microsoft one, the Acer and suddenly my mouse died. Mr. Swiss to the rescue as he knows where the secret supply of mouse batteries are kept. As my hands are not functioning well at the moment, he inserted the battery and everything was alive again.
This was yesterday. Today I took my Apple computer as a beginning to the afternoon. Apple is a little more delicate when they deal with mice. At least mine is, as I have one of those magic mice (mice is the plural of mouse?) which I am quite happy with. I just checked on Apple and discovered that my magic mouse Mark 1 no longer exists and has now been replaced with magic mouse 2. But as these things always happen in pairs, my magic mouse could not find the connection today. Guess what? Yes, it needed new batteries. So Mr. Swiss again to the rescue and he produced two new batteries and after the restart everything was functioning again normally.
And now I am wondering if my amaryllis in the photo is worth a restart. The last restart was successful. I fed it with fertiliser throughout the summer after its flower died last year, I repotted it in Autumn removing the dead roots and it flowered again in Winter. Shall I risk this restart again? I think so.
And now the daily excitement is over. All this restarting is making me tired.
Today it was our turn for the big snow. This week we had ice age termpeatures, but otherwise no snow. I was reading this morning in our online fake news newspaper that all the trains in Zürich were delayed because of snowfalls and was being confronted with photos of delayed trains stuck somewhere on a railway line. The footsteps in the snow are where Mr. Swiss brought the birds their daily ration of bread. With temperatures of -5.8°C the snow will be a long time going again.
I turned over in bed and thought “too bad for the Zürich work force”. Mr. Swiss was already pottering around in the apartment as he is an early riser, at least earlier than me. He entered the bedroom to tell me that the snow had now fallen and enough. I was glad that today I was not going places in a big way. However Mr. Swiss forgot to get some cold cuts for today’s evening meal, so it looks like he will have to put on his snow shoes and battle his way through the blizzard.
Being Swiss and well organised the snow clearing team were already on the job outside. They seem to start training the youngsters today to make sure that everything is well organised. There was also a man doing the job, but he had already moved on leaving the work in the capable shovel of his 5 year old apprentice.
Yesterday we had a new arrival in the kitchen. After 20 years with the same chairs we now have new chairs, genuine leather with a steel frame. I let Mr. Swiss get on with it and they were delivered yesterday: big deal but we discovered they were too high to go under the table. A quick trip to the do-it-yourself and cutting suitable wooden blocks solved the problem, which we put under the table legs.
And now to move on with my various housewife chores, broken leg permitting.
Have a good day, and may you overcome all your computer/Facebook and other little problems that could arise. I will spend my time counting the snow flakes.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain!

Enjoying life and the empty nest while easing into retirement,
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
