At last I did it. I have always admired the photos I see here of birds in flight, because I have never managed it, but with a camera that functions as it should I did it. It is more luck than judgement as the crows do not tell you when they are planning to fly, they just do it. This one had finished his morning breakfast, thanks to me and the bread remainders, and was flying home with a few bread trophies in its beak for later. I pressed the shutter at the right time and caught him in take off. I know it does not exactly set the world on fire, but it set my little world on fire.
Otherwise life goes on as usual, and another sunny day ahead. Even photos of the sun arriving in the morning are now getting boring. I am on the look out for flaming colours, but everything is blue at the moment.
Yesterday morning the plumber fitted up my new shower arrangement, Shower, and I am now a happy bunny. He worked well and was finished in two hours. I then had a free afternoon, althought was on a shopping trip as I no longer go so often in the morning – too much stress. The supermarket was almost empty so it was quite comfortable. I had to load up a 6 bottle pack of Pepsi again but there were two young men from the store room that readily helped with some kind words a well. It is always a pleasure to hear friendly helpful words.
I had a bit of a problem with my cat’s medicine yesterday. I mix it with his evening meal. The bottle is a little difficult to handle as it is organised that I can fill a supplied plastic tube with the right amount and it broke apart. I managed to give it to Tabby yesterday, but most of it was spilt. At a cost of 47.50 Swiss francs for a replacement, I was not so happy. I also do not like going to the vets as it is not east to climb the steps with a walker or to find a parking spot. My No.1 son to the rescue. I phoned the vet this morning to organise the replacement for my son to pick up. In the meanwhile the vet called me to say she had contacted the supplying company and to bring the old bottle because this should not happen. there is a chance that I will get a replacement free of charge. In the meanwhile Son No. 1 fetches a new bottle.
We also have another morning of fresh bed linen, which also needs time, but I have no urgent appointments today. Am perhaps on my way again this afternoon, trying out the new camera.
And now to move on with bed making cleaning and of course, I cannot wait to try out my new shower. This afternoon, time permitting, I was thinking of a cemetery re-visit and castle wheelie where there is a farm. I hope to get some photos of some chickens, ducks and geese, as well as a quick visit to the horses. Perhaps the cows are out on the fields again, although it is a little early.
Have a good day or sleep well and enjoy the reflection of our cathedral in the local River Aare.
