Good Morning

Snow in back garden

It’s here. Almost like a Spielberg film, but it is reality. During the night it snowed enough and it is cold, meaning that it is here to stay today. I hope the road cleaners are already organised and on their way to remove this curse until tomorrow morning, because I really do not want to drive in this stuff. I have enough problems at the moment with dealing with shopping and cleaning and cooking, not to mention other little chores that were once shared with Mr. Swiss. I can no longer rely on any help.

My me time has almost disappeared, but I will cling to the last blog that I write, no, I will not give blogging up. It is the only alternative I now have. My photo safaris in my wheelchair are also now finished temporarily due to the snow, so life is becoming fairly boring.

I did manage to get some bird shots yesterday. I think they realised that the snow was on its way and decided to make the most of what was on offer.

And as if there was enough in the bird feeder, they deciided to have a peck around on the ground below.

Car Park for handicapped

Otherwise I was off shopping yesterday afternoon for an hour in the supermarket. These are the parking places I discovered last week for the handicapped. At last I do not have to queue and hope to find a free spot. They are directly opposite the entrance to the food department and are even free. Usually you have to pay something for a parking place at the supermarket. and my car is the one on the right with the wheelchair symbol.

I had to get more bird food. I usually buy a 5 Kilo  bag, but I only had my walker with me and decided on two smaller 2 Kg bags which fitted better and were easier to handle. Yesterday evening I spent some time on organising my shopping list for Christmas. I realised that this week will be the last chance. On Friday I will have to get food for the next week-end and the following Monday will be Christmas Eve, the beginning of our Christmas. Luckily we are only three people to feed, but want to be sure of something reasonable to eat. I now have a menu list from Friday to the following Wednesday (boxing day) and have a separate list of stuff I can already buy. I am becoming a logician, a planner, but it is now all resting on my shoulders. Luckily the store will be open next Sunday when I can get my Cbristmas meat. I will order it tomorrow.

Today looks like a stay at home day, encircled by snow which I dearly hope will melt until Monday, at least a little bit.

Snow in Garden

And now to move on and do something more worthwhile, like cleaning and preparing dinner.

Hope you are not snowed in and that your day is a restful Sunday.

  1. Because of you, I turned my mattress and did other bed related labor yesterday. It was definitely annoying and the mattress part was heavy but, in the end, I was glad I did. I actually thought, “Hmm, Mrs. Anglo-Swiss does this. Probably a good idea.” The thing of life is it’s not always interesting or fun. I remember when I learned that as a kid. I denied it for a long time but you know, sometimes you have to turn your mattress…

  2. Winter is always bunked up in the house time. I get out very rarely in the winter. If it weren’t for birds and he occasional sunrise … and books … life would be dull. But fortunately, it isn’t. Not yet, anyway.

    • I don’t have a big choice now as I have circumstances that I am the only one managing with the daily chores. I am just hoping that the snow stays away


  3. Our Sunday was a very hard rain day …. you could go nowhere without getting wet. We did some advanced food shopping for the holiday so that next weekend we will not have so much to carry. Monday was very nice, almost 60 degrees fahrenheit. Today is a little cooler but still sunny. Thursday night it will start raining hard again and rain until Saturday. yuk.
