A morning greeting from the Jura mountains in my back yard from yesterday afternoon when I set off on a wheelie. It is the view from the street next to our estate. This morning we have plain blue skies and plenty of sunshine, but it’s a cold morning and needs time to warm up.
I decided to wheel into town in my chair and noticed that the farm next door had all the horses grazing on the meadow. This meadow is actually behind the fence separating the local railway tracks as I wheel long, but there are some spaces in the fencing where I manage to get a photo of horse life. Behind the trees it slopes down to the river Aar and when I wheel back I see the meadow from the other side with more horses.
I eventually arrived into town. I now like to wheel along the outside path in the museum garden. I am keeping an eye on the magnolia trees and at last they are showing the shape of things to come, the buds are slowly opening.
Next week I am sure they will be showing themselves from their best side.
Town is a little boring at the moment as there is nothing happening. The circus visit has come and gone, but now a new tent is being erected. I saw a poster announcing the Fledermaus Symphony Concert by the Munich Symphony Orchestra so the tent is probably for the concert. I would love to go, but it is difficult in the evening for me. I would have to park the car somewhere and would have difficulty getting seated.
There were some kids feeding the pigeons in town and the pigeons were really making the most of the feast. Generally they fly off when I approach, but not when there is free grub to be had.
The crows have taken over the trees along the banks of the river in town and are full of their nests. There will soon be the sound of squeaky caws and the patter of tiny crows feet. Our town is slowly awakening to the spring atmosphere and I am glad. I do not mind the Winter, but everything is now so fresh and green.
This afternoon there will be an excursion to the store and Mr. Swiss mentioned he will come with me. Our computer printer needs a new supply of ink cartridges which is apparently a too difficult task for me to buy, so he wants to deal with it himself. I only really need black ink for my lists of passwords. He is continuously printing stuff. He also had a problem with our TV. The guy we had closed his shop and now Mr. Swiss has found a new place. I do not bother with the TV, do not understand the intricate details of DVD and otherwise: just let me watch “Eastenders” on the BBC and I am happy. Mr. Swiss likes to watch his films. The guy arrived and sorted the various problems which were actually none. He confirmed that our TV was working perfectly. Sometimes golden oldies get a bit muddled especially when you have your own complicated system to understand. Now everyone is happy and we have a good company that will deal with any future problems.
Otherwise life goes on as usual. I have a bit of tidying up to do, not very much. It will be a nice quiet normal day and I have a shopping list to complete.
Have a good day everyone, be kind to your computers and remember they do not like bread crumbs on the keyboard which often happens to me when I eat breakfast in the morning. Of course I had a look in town for any new arrivals in the flower beds and was not disappointed. It is all so fresh and green and growing at the moment: the best time of the year.
