Good Morning

Misty Morning

The snow is still here, but it stopped snowing yesterday and this morning our temperatures are even up to 0°C which means it can only get warmer. They actually predicted 6° and more next week, so it looks like the spook is leaving us. We are now left with a grey misty morning and might even get some sun later in the day.

Somehow the weather fits my mood, lazy and grey. I have absolutely no go to do anyhing at the moment. The only action I have is writing on the computer and even then I have to give myself a push. I could read, but my book at the moment is a non-kindle and so I can only fit that one in during the day. Reading non-kindle in the evening means switching on the light for illuminated scenery and I prefer soft lighting in the evening.

I discovered that the only occupation I enjoy at the moment are Jigsaw puzzles online. I have a complete range of them and the nice thing about the ones I am doing is that you do not know what the picture is until you are finished. I start with the edges and then take a look to see the main coloured pieces. At the moment I have one with lots of dark blue, so I sort those pieces and soon put them together and the sky is completed.  Now I have discovered white and bluish streaks, which seems to be an iced lake, so I am getting there. 288 pieces are my limit and yesterday evening I pieced half a jigsaw together. Yes I know it is pathetic, but little things please little minds.

I am also sleeping better but have a bit of a mix up with my pain killing tablets. I never know which ones I should take and when, but I am surviving. They  have names like Dafalgan, Paracetemol, and Novalgine, so how I am supposed to know which one to take and when. I do not like taking tablets in any case and I am now down to one in the morning and one in the evening.


This morning the kitchen already smelt from freshly baked bread. Mr. Swiss had baked our Platted bread which we always buy, half baked, for Sunday. I do not have a big cooking session today. Just a large piece of ham, some beans and potatoes, good and filling but no big sacrifice in the kitchen.

And now to move on and get my leg in action. It was not a happy leg this morning when taking the first steps, but it can only get better, I hope,

Have fun, take it easy, it is Sunday, so not exactly an action packed day.

  1. Are you ready for this?
    Why are there no aspirins in the jungle? Because the paracetemol.
    (you might have to say it out loud) One of my favorite jokes, though it doesn’t work in the US because the same pill is called Tylenol.
    Best wishes for a continued recovery,and don’t feel embarrassed about doing jigsaw puzzles. And if you can get it, read Margaret Drabble’s The Pattern In The Carpet. Jigsaws have a part in it.


    • I only realized today, thanks to Mr. Swiss, that I should have been taking the novalgine where I was taking the Dafalgan which is actually Paracetemol, but with so many names, how should I know. I take Dafalgan if I get fever similar symptoms when injecting my MS medicine and now I have discovered that cannabis is also used for MS treatment. Must have a word with my specialist. I think we are all guinea pigs. And thanks for the tip about the book. Sounds like something up my street.


      • I put letters on my jars of pill so I can spot which ones are which. I use a big black marking pen. I also keep the pills in a clear plastic bag with a zipper, so I can see what’s in there. For me, the hard part is remember whether or not I took them at all. Was that yesterday or did I take them today? Often, I really don’t remember. The days are so much alike, it can be difficult to tell.

  2. Sure looks like Challah to me. I used to back it myself, back when i baked bread. Sometimes, I put raisins in it and a bit of extra sugar, then a light coating of egg yolk before baking to make it shiny. I used to love baking. I think I like the smell of fresh bread better than anything else ever 🙂
