Good Morning


I actually got a little bit of blue sky this morning, although not long, the grey clouds are back, but they are at least clouds and not a heavey lid. I was thinking that today would be a better one as yesterday. I was all prepared to go for a wheelie yesterday afternoon, but the wind picked up and storm Otto arrived in the afternoon with the accompanying rain. It was not safe to go out, especially in a wheelchair as I would probably have become the first lady in a flying chair.

There were reports this morning of the damage done yesterday in various places. Many planes were grounded in Zürich airport and there were also many that could not land. They either had to hover over the airport waiting for the winds to recede or when they landed they had to start through again. One of the daily newspapers on my internet say that the Winter is returning again. There was a very thin layer of white on the lawn this morning, but it was hard to tell if it was frost or a layer of snow, although I tip on frost. The newspaper I have online is not one of the good ones and is more for sensationalism and local Swiss stuff,  but it serves its purpose.

October Monthly Market 10.09 (2)

Today would be the monthly market in the local town of Solothurn and I was thinking of taking a wheel through to see something different, but it will greatly depend on the weather. I just go along to have a look and take a few photos, although I noticed that there is not anything really new.

This morning is another shopping morning at the local store for food. I must say since I now do it all on my own I have a better overall view on what I need and what I have. Of course it all depends that I note everything on my list. At my golden oldie age I tend to forget stuff now and again. so thank goodness for smart phones for the list. It seems that Mr. Swiss needs something from the drug store which is on the lower level of the mall, and I also have to get a bottle of white wine (for cooking purposes, I don’t drink) which is also in a separate store on the ground floor. Our supermarket, Migros, does not sell alcohol or cigarettes, The guy that founded it many years ago happened to be a teetotaller from everything and carried the idea into his store. He began with small trucks that carried the goods to various outlying villages, expanded to towns and eventually had stores everywhere. It is the biggest chain of supermarkets in Switzerland together with our Co-op. They have their own products, but the co-Op sell all the well-know brands.

And now to go further afield, the shower and apartment are waiting for my attention before I depart into the wilds of Switzerland. Have a good day, who knows what the week will bring.

  1. You do such a lovely write up every morning. I can akmose see your surroundings and everything. I hope yo get your wheelie today.

    I am wondering whether to start doung a Good Morning pist myself each day, but I am boring lol. But the dog might not be boring. She is a little monkey, though beautiful with it. I don’t think our weather is as exciting as yours. Just a little bit of sun right now, but that could change. Have a good day.

    • Go ahead with your good morning theme. I believe you are in GB so you will always be an hour behind the rest of Europe. I am sure it will not be boring and even boring is interesting especially if a dog is involved. We now have snow showers, so I am confined to home today

      • Actually, storms are sometimes something to be celebrated. The first of the season is the best. The one that is here right now is a whopper, which means a lot of sloppy and wet work for us, but it is fun anyway. Sometimes, we crave an excuse to stay inside by a fire. Fireplaces and stoves are increasingly rare here, for a variety of reasons.
