Good Morning

Clouds

My good mornings seem to get later and later. This morning it was pure laziness, hugging the bed and not wanting to leave. iPads are such comfortable instruments. You can hold them in your hand, lay in bed, and deal with your internet duties, without having to go to the computer. Now I am up in the real world and my first check is to see what the world looks like. This morning there are icy temperatures but I spotted a patch of blue sky and decided to take a photo before it disappeared for the rest of the day. No big deal probably and I am have a feeling that the remains of the day will not be so friendly.

Rosemary

I noticed that my rosemary in the garden is still flowering. Since last year in summer it has shown its little violet flowers and in the meanwhile survived the Autumn and Winter. It has been subject to sun, afterwards rain, then came the snow and frost. When the snow melted I noticed that the flowers were still there, and at the moment in March it is producing new flowers everywhere. It is still full of buds, so it must be happy in my garden. I regularly pick a twig for spicing my food, not too many, but they multiply and divide afterwards. Now I will have to replace my sage. That went to the happy hunting grounds at the beginning of Winter and it is time for a fresh plant.

I had a visit from my therapy lady yesterday. She was on holiday for a week. We have now found a good possibility for walking training with just my stick in the kitchen. I can hold the stick in one hand and hold onto the cooking top with the other giving me enough distance to train without my stupid walker. As I have two sticks, we have now begun to walk independently just using both sticks. This week she will bring a pair of crutches to see how that works. It is a slow task, but every little bit more helps. The next target on the horizon is to get to the supermarket, with my walker of course, and to do the shopping with Mr. Swiss. She finds it is now possible. I would be glad to be able to do it at least by the end of this week.

We now have a cleaning lady. After many attempts we are successful. The last one never turned up and was never available on the phone. This one is perfect. She once had her own small cleaning company and knows the trade very well. She arrived yesterday for the first time and I am really pleased. She did a perfect job. She is also a very nice person, and someone who sings when she works is always good to have around.

And now I must really move on. Due to my late start, I am still catching up on comments and have a little bit of cleaning routing to do. Let us look forward to a good day full of excitement on the computer. See you around.

  1. I too enjoy my tablet in bed, usually at night, listening to music or playing the odd game before bed. It’s a pleasure to use and easy so I can’t say a word, cause I’m right there with you, lol

  2. Glad you finally got a cleaning person! A good one is definitely worth keeping. Also, glad you have flowers. Today I looked and I saw maybe a dozen collapsed crocuses. I think they got flattened by the snow and sadly, we’ve got another foot coming tomorrow. Not going to be a great year for spring flowers.

  3. Seeing your pictures …. reminds me …. that this year I have to pay special attention at the garden shop to be sure to buy a rosemary plant that will bloom in our climate … I have never had a rosemary plant that has bloomed before.
