It does not get more misty than it was today. When I raised the blinds I saw only the outlines of the trees, so it can only get better I hope. It actually looks like the sun might even be peeping through later, although there are chilly temperatures out there. Needless to say I did not go anywhere yesterday except for my shopping trip and that was the usual. My life seems to be a slow motion thing at the moment. I can move OK, but am worried about making a false step somewhere. My supermarket trolley is now my anchor, but it works.
The advantage of walking around the store on my own is that I can do my own thing. Much of the bread is made on the premises in a show baking area where you can see them doing the work, so I shot a photo. It is all very well done and afterwards the finished loaves are baked in the oven and come fresh into the shop.
As I look out of the kitchen window I see that the sparrows are already waiting in the trees. I cut up my bread remainders this morning and they are now arriving to see if thre are any pickings. At the moment I only see sparrows. The crows have not yet arrived.
On my last walk a couple of days ago in the village I noticed the horses were all there wrapped in their warm covers.
I was not really planning on a trip anywhere today, but a journey into town will break the monotony. There are now very few shoppers around. The town used to be teeming with people shopping, but it seems that shopping is no longer what it used to be. I noticed our town is now full of service shops like hairdressers and restaurants. There are two large supermarkets, but the smaller food shops no longer exist. We have one butchers shop in the whole town and there used to be four or five of them. It seems to be full of souvenir shops and a few jewellers. Even Christmas shopping is no longer, everything being bought online. I do not mind and avoid crowds where I can. I have never entered a shop with my wheelchair up to now.
Mr. Swiss has decided not to go into town this morning. I have all the food I need for today at home and need nothing more.
I noticed that the days really repeat themselves, but we golden oldies are no longer as adventurous as we were. I remember the time when we would decide to make a trip to perhaps Bern, our capital city, even Zürich, but they are now gone.
We have no longing to walk the streets and go shopping. I think it must be at least 10 years since I visited another town in Switzerland. I think I am becoming a sort of golden oldie hermit. What would I do without a computer, it keeps me in touch.
And now to move on, for the usual routine.
