Blue sky and cumulus clouds, at least I think they are: looks promising, but who knows. It rained yesterday evening and now and again through the night, so temperatures are a little on the cool side. Today is one of those days, I hope, when there is nothing that we have to do, but just what we want to
Yesterday I decided to get those little jobs done that were mounting up. It was time for the windows on the front side of the apartment, but why bother? I do. When I was a working woman with job and pay packet, I had to fit these things in between but now having nothing to do as a golden oldie, I have the time. Unfortunately the body often disagrees, but yesterday afternoon Mr. Swiss had a supermarket mission to complete and so I decided it was time to do the work as I was on my own. The job was completed within half an hour and I collapsed into a chair on the porch satisfied. I am so proud of myself. When I think over the last five months on my broken leg recovery, every little milestone of doing something I used to do with no problem, is an achievement.
Due to my stay-at-home day, I did not go places and see things. My last photo excursion was to the supermarket yesterday morning. Here is our local railway station. No big deal I know, but the little pavement than runs along the side of the bushes is one of my favourite wheelchair stretches. It leads to the estate where I live and just at the side of the station building there is a gap in the hedge to a farm where they have horses.
I often make a stop on a wheelie in the chair to see if there are any horses grazing in the field, and am rarely disappointed.
After cleaning the windows yesterday I moved on to watering my two indoor plants. The rest are now outside enjoying the warmer weather.
I have two kalanchoe plants indoors. I love these plants. They are easy to care for: just once a week I give them a bath for a few minutes in their pots, empty the water away and forget them for a week. Not exactly forget, I have a look now and again and of course talk to them. I am sure that is the secret of good care. They are also one of the most reasonable plants to buy, just a couple of Swiss franks. I have killed a couple of them with kindness, by repotting them and giving them a spray. They prefer to be left alone and do their own thing. I have been told that they grow to new plants if you plant a leaf in a pot.
Today will be a day of relaxation and perhaps a journey into the unknown this afternoon if the weather stays with me.
Now I must move on to take a walk with my mops and vacuum cleaner, all free legged. I have got my normal life back at last, after 5 months of supporting myself with a walker. I hope you all find a silver lining somewhere in your day, even if you have to search. Enjoy the day or night, wherever you are.
