And it is another glorious Spring Day in my little part of Switzerland, actually all over Switzerland. There are a few fluffy cumulus clouds in the background so I decided to take a photo before they disappear for the day. Afterwards it will just be blue skies. I should really go somewhere today, not far, but enjoy the good warm weather. I will eventually get a wheelchair sun burn,
Yesterday I did it. I cleaned my three windows at the east side of the appartment. I had been thinking about it for sometime. Since my spectacular leg breaking accident end of January they have not been touched and probably due to the fact that I have a window cleaning habit, they did not look so bad. However, now the spring is here and the trees are flowering. I was sitting outside with my Macbook and suddenly noticed a layer of yellow dots on the screen. It was the same on my iPad. The trees are pollinating all over the place. Many suffer with hay fever and I do not. However, my windows and computers are beginning to sneeze and the time is ripe. Can I do it was my thought: balance on my legs free handed with the window cleaning instruments in my hands.
I decided to tackle the three rooms on the east side as they are not so many windows. I prepared my instruments of cleaning and began, being careful not to alarm Mr. Swiss. He gets worried in case I might fall. I suppose he is right, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. However, he caught me in action as I was finishing the first window and found it great. I suppose there was not much else he could say. I continued undaunted and in half an hour I had finished all three windows and their frames. There is no point in having clean windows and dirty frames. I did the work after the evening meal, as he is then occupied with watching the daily news on the TV.
I now have the windows on the other side of the apartment, but will save them for next week. I now have a confirmation that life is getting back to normal. I have my morning routine again and part of the weekly routine. Mr. Swiss was always telling me, on my normal unbroken leg days, that I really do not have to clean every day as everything is clean. I just have a tick and like to do it to keep things in order. When I was a working lady I never really had the time for everything, but since being retired my half hour in the morning for clearing up is something I need. Little extra jobs I can easily fit in and I now have a cleaning lady for the big exhausting stuff like bathrooms, showers and kitchens. It is a privilege I now feel comfortable with and a proof that I am on the road to recovery.
This morning I will go hunting at the supermarket. I noticed Mr. Swiss has already begun our joint shopping list on the iPhone cloud. This afternoon I have a visit to the hairdresser on the programme, to renew my beauty, so it looks like it will be a busy day.
Keep safe, and I will be back this afternoon.
