Good Morning

Morning Sky

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.

  1. We are having a proper winter’s day today but not too cold, about 17 C – the cold will set in after the rain when the wind changes and then we might get snow on our local mountains.

  2. So I guess you got the “message” from WordPress. Didn’t we go through this before?

    It was beautiful here today. Garry’s good to go for his cochlear implant … and my computer was hacked. Seriously hacks. Good i have another computer, but all my photographs and processing stuff is on the PC …

    More tomorrow. This was quite the day.


    • I saw the message from WordPress. Reminded me of when Multiply went into marketing and closed down a month later. WordPress say thanks. The moor has done its job and now you can go.
      Hacking is something that happens to the others for me, but it can happen to all of us. That is a real sh*t and I feel with you. Hope all goes well with Gary


  3. Hey, that last picture looks like an elderberry! I just wrote (about pictures) of two elderberries, our native blue elderberry and a ‘Black Lace’ black elderberry. I still can not determine if the ‘Black Lace’ is from Eastern North American or Europe. Both black elderberries are of the same specie – on two different continents?!
