As you can see it is raining again and we are actually glad. After a couple of weeks of watering the garden ourselves, the weather is now doing it for us. No more fighting to keep our lawn alive. It has also got colder, but that does not bother me so much. I prefer cooler temperatures, it is more comfortable.
Today is cleaning lady day so I am a little later on my computer. I have done my daily cleaning up session and can now take it easy.
On our way to the supermarket yesterday I had a glimpse of our house mountain, Weissenstein and now there is a crane perched at the top. They are renovating the restaurant and adding a new building. Apparently transporting the crane 1,395 meters to the top was not so easy, but now it is working. The split the crane into sections and reconstructed it again at the top.
Yesterday afternoon I had another session of physical therapy and things are going good. I have a new exercise, this time to be done in bed, which suits me. The idea is to strengthen my left leg joints. I am really making progress now and even manage free style, although the therapist said I should not do it too much as I would tire quickly. She also advised me to ask my neurologist about doing occupational therapy for my hands. I can still move them, but no longer as good as I could and they no longer have such a good feeling.
When driving the car I have to use both hands to turn the key as I no longer have so much strength in them. Otherwise for the actual driving I have no problem. I also want to talk to my neurologist about the new drug for MS and I also want to know the exact definition of my MS type. So many questions, but the more I learn about this illness the better. I know that MS destroys the top layer of the nerve, but did not realise how much can be done to improve the mobility by physical therapy which strengthens the muscle power.
The lilac opposite my garden is now flowering and is making a wonderful show. I ventured out to it with my camera, but it was so windy yesterday it was difficult to get a clear and sharp photo.
Today is a holiday in many European countries for May Day, day of the workers etc. When I was a working woman I had half a day holiday, in the afternoon. My son had to work this morning, but will be at home in the afternoon. There is no big party here, but usually in the afternoon there is a politician that has a speech somewhere, and there might be a small procession of socialists somewhere. No big deal, the main thing was that I then had an afternoon free.
It used to be the big Russian day, but I think no longer. The processions of tanks and weapons is a thing of the past and everyone likes to keep them as a secret. I saw on the TV yesterday that somewhere in the far east there is a exhibition for weapons, submarines, tanks, planes and anything you can use for a war. There were many visitors, mainly from Asia, and there were stands with various different rifles and guns you could examine and make your choice. A sort of weapon supermarket. One Asian guest said he already had a submarine and was now looking to buy two more. What a world we live in.
I am now off to prepare dinner, Mr. Swiss has gone
fishing shopping and I hope you all have a good day.
