Good Morning

img_2335

And tomorrow is 1st June, time flies. The summer is now arriving, slowly but surely. After a rainy begin, the weeks is developing into a parade example of good weather, sun and warmth. It was only last year when we began to eat our meals outside on the porch in May, but those days have now dwindled.  I like to be outside as much as possible in the warmer seasons, I have my own built-in heating system. However Mr. Swiss now has problems and needs warmer weather than I do. As a concession we are still eating inside, although I am outside most of the time otherwise.

I did break out yesterday afternoon for a wheelie in the surroundings, but there was nothing special to report. The horses were grazing at the neighbouring farm by the roadside. I decided to wheel on into town. Yesterday was a religious holiday for Ascension Day and it seemed to be more religious than most as town was quite empty and only a few restaurants were open.

My first glimpse of the town entry showed desolation. and there were definitely no entertainments happening, such a street musicians. As if to compensate one of the appartments in town had open windows filling the street with music from their radio.

I wheeled onto our Amthausplatz on the edge of town with a few official local government buildings.

At last something completely different. They are renovating Amthaus No. 1 (which must be at least 80 years old) and it is encased in a Christy similar artistic packing. The building has local government offices and I believe also law courts, although we have a Amthaus No. 2 where most of the court matters are conducted.

After an hour of wheeling around and not finding anything more interesting for a photo, I decided to wheel my way home along the river bank. Even the river seemed to be deserted. the ducks were also taking a day off.

However some children had decided to feed the swan. There was only one swan, so she was probably glad to have the food all to herself, or for the cygnets in the nest.

I arrived back home and uploaded the few photos from my camera. Since my photo hoster, Flickr, had downtime last week and problems getting started again, I returned to Google photos and discovered they have an arrangement with WordPress and it is much easier and quicker now to include my photos, so I now have two photo hosting systems.

This morning I was doing my usual rounds on WordPress. I have my own system and like to visit other contributions on the sites where I also participate and WordPress have again changed their system. It got very annoying as I had to go round four corners until I arrived where I wanted to. I did the necessary and decided to return to bed hugging for half an hour and then “Bingo”, I had a brainwave (in bed) and realised how to adapt to the suit the new WordPress system. I included a new app on my iPad and was ready to go. I know, our web sites are always adapting in the name of improvement, but this was a real stupid development and a step back.

Today is week-end shopping time: the list is made and I am ready to go this afternoon. At the moment I am still enjoying the morning in the kitchen with my computer, in front of an open window with the remains of my cup of tea and my iPhone by my side in case something new happens. It should be quite easy shopping (it always is in the afternoon actually) with even less people as they are now away enjoying their long holiday week-end, despite the kilometer traffic jams they had yesterday.

Ii am now off for some hoovering and mopping exercises. Have a good day and enjoy it. I will be back (a promise, not a threat).

  1. I am at the head-banging stage with WordPress. Everything they do seems to take a simple one-click process and make it multiple screens and clicks and saves. I try really hard to hang on to my temper because it’s useless. They do what they do and they simply don’t care about us at all.
