RDP Monday: Jet

My Plane to Switzerland from London Citiy

I used to jet around once a year
Zürich to London and had no fear
I would pass over villages look down on a town
I knew where I was, I recognised the ground
We flew over the Jura, I saw my home
In front of the Weissenstein, our mountain known
But soon we were further crossing over France
A very long stretch, turbulence made the plane dance


We had entertainment on board demonstrating a seat belt
And what to do if the plane decided to pelt
Suddenly a voice said we are now in descent
I saw the River Thames and I was then content
I had arrived at my destination, London again
Now more Swiss sun, just English rain
I did this journey for 20 years, but was not sad
Because when I arrived in London I saw again my dad

Good Morning

Morning Clouds

We have clouds again, although not threatening, just an interesting morning sky. Blue skies are fine but a little monotonous. Give me a cloud any time, as long as not so threatening, It is like a book withe page turners, and you never really know what is going to happen next.

Unlike myself I do know what will happen next. I am sitting at the table in the kitchen with a view of the porch.


And the weather is now warm enough to allow me to sit outside in the afternoon, although around fivish it begans to chill a little. Note the two chairs opposing each other. They are very useful in that style, You can sit on one and rest your feet on the other, although I am usually outside with my Mac computer blogging away. I have even been busy removing the weeds from the garden lately. they are the first small ones that cover the earth. Now most of them are gone I can actually see what my gardener planted and what is now growing. As I am not so good at bending and weeding. I do a little every day and am now almost finished.

Lenten and Christroses

At least I have a better view of my lent and chrisroses. I have cleared the right side, but on the left there is still some annoying weedy undergrowth.

At last I have a relaxed Monday morning. I usually have to go to the store on Monday morning to fill up the food plan, and also do some cleaning of the apartment. Now I have a different system and get Monday lunchtime food on Friday which means no urgent shopping until the afternoon when I have more time. I now at last have a stress free Monday morning. I know as a golden oldie I can please myself what I do, but only if I am organised which I now am.

I can now hear the church bells from the village church so perhaps there is something going on today, or perhaps it is just because it is Monday morning.

Feldbrunnen Church 12.12.2018

It is a nice church, roman catholic, the main religion in our part of Switzerland, perched on a hill in the village and overlooking everything which seems to be normal for such buildings in Switzerland.

Mr. Swiss has now stopped hugging the bed and has joined me in the kitchen for his first, no second, coffee of the day. He makes the first one whilst I am still hugging the bed and then returns. Ever our daily routine is the same.

I have a shopping list to create just to make sure I forget nothing. I rely absolutely on my online list. Yesterday was a normal Sunday with nothing special happening. I was going for a wheelie in my  chair, but decided to take it easy at home and so I baked one of those Swiss apple tarts which everyone seemed to be happy about. Mr. Swiss says he worries when I am on my way in my chair alone and I say I am worried if anything might happen when I am away from home, but we cannot stay glued to each other forever.

And now to attack the apartment with a vacuum cleaner whilst Mr. Swiss attacks our beds to make them.

See you around, enjoy the week ahead. And here are the first shoots of my apple tree unfolding the leaves, what a wonderful sight on a Monday morning.
