Just another morning in the backwoods of Switzerland. A breeze is blowing which I do not mind. although some say it is a cold annoying wind – no names mentioned. The builders opposite are now celebrating their week-end, having finished the construction of the scaffolding. After going through the process on my own block last year, I know exactly their logistics. First of all the scaffolding specialists arrive and fit their steel poles and platforms together. The next part will be the actual bulders with their automatic chisels and scrapers and noise. I became the expert last year.
Now we have peace and quiet for the week-end. We had a slight bread problem for breakfast this morning. There were only hard remainders, dry and unappetising, but a fresh bread half baked from the supermarket, actually for Sunday.
The idea was to show this wonderful bread baking in the over, but there were too many light effects from the outside background and the photographer was in the wrong place. On the other hand we have one of those special Pulitzer prize suspicious photos. I was impatient so chopped a few slices off and put them in the toaster. It was wonderfully fresh with butter and lemon curd.
The only escape I managed yesterday was a visit to the supermarket and so it was the only opportunity I had for a few photos. We were late going as I was apparently sitting at the computer too long with my breakfast, although I did not think so. One of those slight misunderstandings. We seem to be surrounded by cranes and building sites. This site is just near the supermarket. A year ago the old appartment blocks were still standing and I even took photos of their destruction. Mr. Swiss lived there with his mum many years ago. Now there are new appartment blocks which will be finished some time this year. Everything changes so fast.
I am thinking of a wheelie this afternoon, according to how I feel, how long my midday sleep will be and what the weather is doing. I have chilli con carne to cook this evening, no big deal, but it does not prepare and cook itself unfortunately.
In the meanwhile I will move on otherwise I might be spending too much time on the computer, although today is a straight run through of the usual. My appartment is now up to Mrs. Angloswiss standards, having completed my last task yesterday since breaking a leg four months ago, of cleaning the back windows. I now feel happy. I even tidied my bathroom cabinet this week and discovered lipsticks and nail varnish which were fit objects for a museum exhibition. I threw it all: the lipsticks seemed to be melting and the nail varnish was nail fungus suspicious if used.
I will leave you with another photo from yesterday’s excursion to the supermarket, a glimpse of the Jura mountains which form the backdrop to the supermarket. Those lampposts always interrupt the perfect photo.
Have fun everyone, enjoy the week-end and do not forget your computers, they also need you and miss you when you are not there.
