It is all set and ready to go, but I am not sure if I am. I dragged myself out of bed and did the morning preliminaries. First of all let there be light and I open the curtains. Then I had some washing to put away, no big deal, and most important prepare my breakfast, or was it fire up the computer. I also cut up the remaining bread from yesterday for the big birds outside, although it is mainly the sparrows that have appeared up to now each one flying away with a piece of bread in its beak. I am now ready to go after a quick reminder that today is Saturday. Not that it really matters, as when you are a golden oldie days tend to repeat themselves unless you have a doctor’s appointment or have to go hunting for food.
It was then that I noticed a movement in the sink as I was filling the machine with water. I had a visitor so I made more light to see what it exactly was. It looks like Mr. or Mrs. Spider was paying a visit. I could have washed him down the drain, but decided to let him do his thing as long as he does not want to share my breakfast.
It is a misty morning today, although this photo is one of yesterday’s as we were on our way to the supermarket. Yesterday it stayed dull all day, but today it looks like it will brighten up a bit which I hope as I have planned a little visit to town this afternoon. Saturday afternoons in town are usually interesting with a few new street musicians and otherwise actions.
The Christmas tree at our supermarket now seems to be complete, although no big deal. It probably has lights in the evening, which I will never see because I only go shopping when there is natural light. Apart from the big red glass ornaments there is nothing else to see. It is all too early for me, December is still a couple of weeks away.
And now to go into action with the Saturday programme which is almost the same as every other day. Mr. Swiss has now joined me in my daily work and has already made the bed and is examining the kitchen for his breakfast. He will be paying a visit to the supermarket this morning for some bits and pieces but I am also sending him on a mission to buy an Ice Queen amaryllis, the white one. I had one last year, it was so beautiful, but lost its balance and fell before it finished flowering. I tried to save it for this year, but gave up and now the store has them again so I am hoping he can get one. The are already potted in a nice big pot
And I will now depart for some escapades in the home. Have a good Saturday everyone, and make the most of it. I will be busy going places, like this chicken.
