Good Morning

Morning Sky

We got a sky this morning and this is what I call a sky. A little cloud action is always good, especially with a blue background. The clouds are just there for some decoration. I should really get my ceiling painted at home with this pattern.

Yesterday was also quite a good day, with a nice fresh breeze and some sun. It got me out in the afternoon for a wheelie in my chair. I did not have big ambitions, so it was a roll through the cemetery on the way past the castle and to the animals. This was the first time I had seen a funeral at the cemetery. They usually hold them in the morning, but it was about three in the afternoon when I wheeled past. It must have been someone well known, as there was quite a crowd. There are many paths in the cemetery so I decided to take the side paths as I did not want to get in the way. However, when I left the burial ground the mourners were leaving as well, so I had to be careful to avoid the many cars. I know the cemetery is basically there for a burial, but I am not used to seeing so many people there.

I noticed the crops are now nearing the harvesting stage so the threshers and harvesting machines will soon be arriving. There were a lot of crows around, I chose this photo  because I at last managed to capture one in flight. Actually I waited a while next to the field hoping for a sudden noise of traffic or something to get them all at once into the air for a photo of the day, but nothing happened. They all stayed on the ground doing what crows do in fields.

The cows still seem to be doing the night shift on the fields due to the heat of the day, although I did see one lonely cow yesterday.

Actually there were two cows, one was hiding  behind the other one.

So I moved on to the chicken run.

One of them was holding a lecture about laying more eggs, otherwise their days might be numbered in the laying shed. Only good hens lay enough eggs to prevent them from arriving in the soup, she said. And all the others clucked in agreement. The rooster was listening, but decided hen is hen and as long as they do their job, he can do his.

I wheeled on home eventually. I discovered I had 150 photos on my camera, but it seems I did not clear the memory the last time, so it was eventually just 70 new photos. I keep many in the archives for perhaps a challenge session on WordPress.

Neighbour's cat 10.07 (1)

As I turned into the home run, I saw that Bubu was laying outside his apartment building. He lives on the first floor, but the human that he owns always has a cushion outside for him. Today he decided to rough it a bit and lay on the tiles, even those cats on hot tin roofs have to cool down now and again. Sometimes he might take a walk through our Tabby’s territory, but she just watches with suspicion. This cat is to be avoided at all times when possible, he is quite the boss.

Today is again a shopping day, although at the moment we seem to be living on air  and love (we say “Luft und Liebi” in Swiss German which sounds better). My No. 1 son is away and we have far too much bread and leftovers from the meals. I will have to reduce the amounts we buy. We eat, but golden oldies eat less. I am fed up with eating semi stale bread for breakfast.

Look after your computers, remember to empty the bread crumbs between the keys now and again (one of my problems after eating breakfast) and enjoy the day. I must now move on, my vacuum cleaner is impatiently waiting with a mop. I will leave you with a view across the fields to the Jura mountains with some angry clouds gathering, from yesterday’s wheelie, although the clouds were just mumbling to themselves and stayed where they were.

  1. I love your two cows as one cow and the clouds over your Alps. I always enjoy this post. It reminds me that I too had a day. Yours was shopping. Ours was cleaning — a BIG cleaning (for us). With moving heavy furniture kind of cleaning. The kind of cleaning that leaves you urgently needing a shower because you’re covered in sweat!

    It’s not so hot here right now. Down to about 70 degrees which is about as comfortable as our weather ever gets. Tomorrow, we get our new mattress and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the dogs while they haul the mattress in and the old one out. I think we have it worked out. Two Scotties in the kitchen because they can’t jump the gate, with Duke in the bathroom because I’m pretty sure he can’t work the doorknob.

    • My morning blog seems to be here to stay. It is an accomplishment to breakfast. Since recovering from my broken leg and having the cleaning lady I am back in my cleaning routine. I even sorted the chocolate in the fridge yesterday. We have it all in a box, but it was more bits and pieces of foil snd broken bits of chocolate. I seem to have become a real Swiss housewife over the years, perhaps we are lucky that our apartment was only built 20 years ago and the quality is good. We lived in an old apartment once built in the thirties for 20 years and that was a war to clean, especially as it was on the corner of two main roads in town.
