Has spring sprung? Looks like it in the middle of our meadow outside. The birds are disappearing, the birdhouse is empty and there are only one or two pecking on the remains of the seed containers hanging on the bushes. Now they can begin to search for this years partner and build nests.
We have one of those grey mornings, so hoping for something better.
Today there is nothing special going on. Mr. Swiss got the provisions yesterday accompanied by two phone calls from the supermarket. It seems they were out of tinned tomatoes and he only found the smallest tins. He was also looking for sage leaves, but only found the powdered sage. It is times like that when I so wish I could go shopping again. He does a good job, really, I am not complaining, but after 50 years of shopping for the family you develop an eye for what you need and want. I realise now that what is instinct for me is a mystery for him.
I am really a bit down at the moment. We both do what we can, but it is just not the same when I cannot yet stand alone and independently. I am just not sure enough yet and my therapist also says it is too early. I just want to take a vacuum cleaner in my hands or a mop and walk around the place. It is not a big job, just the normal surface cleaning, but I have to hold onto stuff and balance the mop on my walker to do it all. I could say forget it. I did for the first week I was out of hospital, but nothing was the same. Everyone says how well I am doing but I do not notice very much.
It looks like we Swiss will be voting again. For some time the powers that be have been talking about buying some new jets The first attempt failed because they decided to buy something Swedish that was still on the drawing board and we all said no. Now we can say yes or no to buying, and later it will be decided what we will buy Swiss to vote (again) on buying new jet fighters. I am still wondering why we need them. I suppose our pilots have to do something to keep them busy.
In the meanwhile, in between, I did my cleaning practice and now I can just lead a life of luxury until I begin to cook.
Enjoy the day, see you around.
