Good Morning


Not a this morning photo, but yesterday afternoon. Today is cloudless and drab, no snow but unfriendly. It is also a stupid morning for me. I love my quiet routine mornings with no interruptions. Today we were expecting another candidate for a cleaning lady and Mr. Swiss wanted to deal with the shopping before she arrived. This mean stop hugging the bed and eat breadfast and no playing with the computer. I did not have the time as I had to have my shower before Mr. Swiss departs for a risk free session. I was showered when the cleaning lady phoned to say she had a problem. There is a serious illness in the family and sorry she could not come. I could have saved my stress, although sorry for her problem.

Now Mr. Swiss has departed, I am clean and ready for action at my computer. We had another drama when my computer mouse disappeared. As I had not touched my computer it was not my fault. After a search Mr. Swiss found it on the floor beneath the shelves where I keep my mice and computers. It was one drama after the other this morning. At least I could read further in my book at breakfast. At the moment I am going on a hiking trip in the San Diego area of the States by book, and am totally captivated by everything. My hikes in Switzerland are quite tame in comparison.  I should finish the book today.

We are having problems with our shopping list. I make a list, Mr. Swiss adds to it and that should be fine until we noticed yesterday evening that all that was remaining in the fridge was some remainders of cheese (cheddar and something soft and french) and a cervela (Swiss sausage) to feed three people. Basically Sunday evening is not such a spectacular eating spree for me, I just take what is there. However, if the others are not cheese inclined (my No. 1 son will not eat cheese, unless fondue and Mr. Swiss eats it because it is there) you have a problem. It seems I should make more suggestions for Sunday evening, but cheese is OK with me. I am of the opinion the salami and ham eaters should do some research in that direction. I did find a tomato in the fridge and it was eatable.

We had voting in Switzerland at the week-end about “No Billag”. You don’t know what it is? Neither did I really, although there were weeks of discussions on the TV before the voting. It means no more advertising on the TV, meaning that where are we going to get the money from, or something like that and we would probably be overtaken by freak TV stations shovelling their advertising down our throats. Anyhow it was turned down, everyone is happy and we can continue to pay our TV licences as always. If it had been accepted there would be not more licence fees. At least something like that. It was all very technical and, OK, I did not really understand the fuss. Voting in a direct democracy is a way of life here.

This afternoon I have a visit to the local vampire doc with Mr. Swiss. We both have to donate blood for an examination.

And now to move on see you later. If I do not appear, it means that the vampire got me and I now belong to the undead.

Have a good day everyone.

    • This one would have been a good one as someone recommended her, but now she has some bad luck and her family live in a different country. I think my Swiss family are one of the exceptions to the Swiss cheese lover rule.

        • At the end of the book there are two maps. One is the Mission Trails regional park and the other Laguna Mountain Recreation Area. Everest is Cowle’s Mountain 1259 feet the highest mountain within the San Diego city limits. You probably know the area.

          • I am not familiar with San Diego County, but I have heard of the San Carlos neighborhood near Cowle’s Mountain. I know that San Diego is a very pretty city, especially compared to San Jose. The San Carlos neighborhood has excellent views of the area. Laguna Mountain is closer to here, in San Benito County. It is some very scenic and remarkably remote area. It is amazing that so many millions of people live here, but some of the most uninhabited places in America are here too.

  1. San Diego would be my ideal place to live if I had an actual choice. Great weather, too. I loved Martha’s book and so did Garry. It made him wish he had taken the job offer there when he got it. I wish he had, too.

    Garry is OK with cheese, but he is more or less “take it or leave it.” I’m the one who really loves it.

    • San Diego would be my place as well although I am now too unfit to travel the trails So much wildlife.
      Mr. Swiss is not so typical Swiss concerning cheese. He even prefers cheddar to Emmentaler. He is more a salami person.
