I made it. It is cleaning lady day today and the gardener also decided to do his early Spring care to my garden today. The gardener is now finished but the cleaning lady is singing as she works in my bathroom. There were some nice clouds this morning and it looks like it will be a good day.
The Jura mountains from my yard were also showing themselves with their best sunny look, so what could be better.
And my first daffodil is flowering. I had a pot full last year and when they finished I planted them around my buddleia and now one after the other the buds are appearing.
Otherwise it looks like it will be a good day today and I might venture out into the wilds of town this afternoon to see if there is any photographic material around.
Yesterday was quite an eventful afternoon for me, I tanked my car up, although I still had some spare gas for a few days, but I had more time on Monday afternoon. Of course nothing new, I often tanked when I was a daily driver many years ago with my own car, but then Mr. Swiss retired and we only had the one car so he usually tanked. Over the years you now tank with your various credit cards and not money, which was my problem. This was a new experience for me working out how to do it at the tanking station. Of course the instructions are well written on the machine, but if only the sun was not directly shining and I was blinded and could not read it properly. Eventually another customer appeared at the petrol pump opposite mine and at last I could ask him to help me. Now I have a full tank again, and it will probably be another three months until I need to fill it again.
In the meanwhile I discovered that our store have a special card for tanking. I would get my points and the cost would be dealt with by direct debit. I wrote out my application for such a card yesterday online. I am slowly getting back into the old car driving routine and the financial transactions that go with it.
Otherwise back to the kitchen to put the finishing touches to lunch, It is a short morning this morning due to my visitors, and I will leave you with my surviving hyacinth in the garden, I am quite proud of it as I grew it all by myself from one of those little bulbs that form on the big one, After about five years it now produces flowers. At first it was only leaaves.
Have a good day everyone, see you around later and have fun.
