The times of the interesting sunsets are now upon us. I saw this one yesterday evening. We are having almost summer weather and tempertures during the day are up to 25°C, which means out with a t-shirt. I am now even debating wearing my bermudas, the shorter trousers. At home I have been walking around in shorts for the past month.
I am making the most of the weather and time allowing, which it does at the moment, due to being a golden oldie with nothing better to do, I am out and about for an hour or a a little more in the afternoon.
Yesterday I decided to take a trip along the bank of the River Aare, which is just along the path to where I live. It was a bit of a bumpy ride in my chair, as paths along river banks are stony and uneven, but I continue undaunted. We have quite a duck life on the river, mainly swans and mallards, but yesterday I met a few newcomers. At least they were newcomers to me as I had never seen them before. I have no idea what this is, looks like a mini pelican.
I continued on my way and saw this duck. I have absolutely no idea what it is, but there seemed to be a duck meeting happening yesterday. It must be the time of the year, and they are probably searching for a mate.
Swans are everywhere and I noticed there are many last year arrivals which have not yet got their white feathers.
I wheeled on and reached the town, but no further. The weather was wonderful and there were many dog walkers along the path. I often saw some soggy wet dogs that had decided to have a refreshing bath in the river.
I have a bit of a silly week this week. The mowey man will be coming to find the interrupted cable somewhere embedded in our lawn, but there is no definite appointment. Mr. Swiss has a class reunion on Friday and will be away lunchtime and part of the afternoon. and I have now arranged for the cleaning lady to come on Friday afternoon as well. I had never had a cleaner before, but since breaking a leg and having MS as well, there are just some jobs I can no longer manage, and Mr. Swiss has his back problems. We are far from being rich, but I have decided in life there are some things that you can have to ease the way, so why not.
I should visit my hairdresser, as what is growing on my head is more a longer version of a punk style, but it will have to wait until next week, as this week I do not have the time. Due to the class reunion we are doing the week-end shopping on Thursday. In my better days I would take the car and do it myself on Friday, but I am not yet driving. Just another obstacle I will eventually conquer, I hope. Life seems to be full of obstacles at the moment, but I notice that when you overcome them the first time, afterwards they are no problem.
Here is a view from the river path with the Jura mountains in the background and showing the buildings belonging to the estate where I live. Our appartment block cannot be seen on this photo, it is more towards the mountains.
And now to go, I have my daily therapy exercises to execute, combined with housework. I wish you all a good day with lots of fun, or pehaps not, but make the most of it. Every vacuum cleaner has a silver lining, and a bag full of dust somewhere waiting to be emptied.
