Good Morning


Actually that bright spot behind the trees near the middle is the sun which decided to flood my bedroom with light when I opened the blinds. I quickly closed them again and he who will not be mentioned decided to return to hugging the bed after a coffee. I braved the new day and did the usual chores like clearing away the linen from the wash stand and generally making light in the apartment. I also opened a few windows to let some fresh air in.


I just love seeing the view from the kitchen window in the morning as I am sitting at the breakfast table with my computer. It is really an inspiration and invitation for daily action. Daily action today means yet another shopping trip to the store., which reminds me to add a couple of items on my shopping list.

This evening it will be yet another romantic candlelight supper with Mr. Swiss and I, although without the candles as it now stays light until about 8-9 pm. No. 1 son will be picked up by car with a couple of others to see Roger Hodgson, the ex lead singer of Supertramp that are no longer. I quite liked Supertramp myself in their day. We will be alone this evening, although at the ages of 80 and 73, we like to take it easy.


Yesterday afternoon was exhausting enough as Mr. Swiss had to see the eye specialist. It was not so far away, just in town on the other side of the railway station, but I had to squeeze my little car into a space in the parking lot, and I do not like parking at the best of times, especially when there is no choice and only one space available. I told Mr. Swiss to go ahead to the doc and I would put the money in the machine for the parking space. Somehow he got lost and I had to search for him, but after being together for 50 years, you have a built-in tracking device for your partner.

At least I had time to take a photo of our railway station from the window of the waiting room. The eye examination confirmed that Mr. Swiss has advancing glaucomas and they will both be operated in July, two operations in two weeks. It is now a fairly routine op, takes about half an hour, and can be done with local anaesthetic. We are both glad that it can be done locally and that he will not have to go to another hospital further away.


After my daily garden inspection this morning I discovered yet another new arrival and this one I am certain that the gardener did not plant. According to check (and I really did not recognise this one), it could be the product of a rape seed. They resemble a yellow cloud when the grow in a field, and are for oil production. This seed might have found its way in my garden: perhaps it is not rape, but looks very much like it.

And now time to go, although no stress today. I had enough yesterday. It is still quite cool outside and the sun has now disappeared, although the weather experts tell us that summer is arriving with temperatures up to 30°C at the week-end, but I will believe that when it happens.

Make the most of the day perhaps it is a perfect day, just a good day, or not so good. See you later. Have a sniff at my photo with the blue flowering thyme on the right (the other plant is my sedum).

  1. Your sky looks similar to ours. We have had thunderstorms for a week and more are forecast for the rest of the week. Last night the storm was building up there was a rainbow in the middle of the cloud.

  2. Good Morning . . . too early in the morning for you to get this message right away. I am not really late. I just did not want to stay up late enough to reply last night.
    Anyway, that flower looks like rape. I would say it is mustard, but only because that is what used to grow so abundantly in the Santa Clara Valley. Yours is more likely rape, just because that is what is in the neighborhood. They are related, with similar flowers.
