Lets begin the day with a view of the Bernese Alps and some clouds above that I saw on a wheelie up to the local castle. The Summer days are now arriving and with it the wonderful views over the flat Bernese Plane down to the Alps: something I really treasure about living where I am. 52 years ago when I arrived in Switzerland I was stationed in Zürich. They also have their mountains, more in the East of Switzerland, but you never got views like this from the town. You had to drive further to see anything like it.
So after dealing with lunch yesterday and having a golden oldie midday sleep, I made my way in my wheelchair to see something completely different.
The first sight were the horses grazing behind the side path of the local railway. I always make a stop in my chair and take a few photos. They are usually grazing on the field.
I then wheeled on further and eventually arrived at the stables on the other side of the road where this horse was waiting to have his photo taken. On the way I drove through the cemetery.
although there was not very much action there. The graves have now been planted with fresh flower arrangements.
I had a stop over at the farm, but there was not very much action there either.
There was only one chicken available for a photo, although I heard the rooster somewhere in the background. At the moment there is not very much happening. They shifted the movable chicken coop to the bottom of the farm which is difficult for me to reach in my chair and that is where the chicken action is, with laying eggs etc.
However the cows were out making the most of the weather.
I eventually arrived home and discovered I had quite a bit of stress in front of me. I had photos to deal with, a bite to prepare to eat and a garden to water. In the hot weather with no rain there is a negative side to it all. I also had a few items to iron, but eventually I was finished and could relax in a chair for the rest of the evening, although I had a shopping list to create for today’s supermarket safari. It is going to be one of those stressy weeks again as next Monday the country closes down for one of those stupid holidays, Whit Monday, and I will have to plan for the shopping. I do not mind. I have a car and the store is not at the end of the world, but I do miss the days when Mr. Swiss was active and would come with me. They are just things that change for the future and you really did not calculate, at least I did not.
As long as I have my computer and remain mobile I am OK. And now to move on. Keep safe and well and those that are not so well, get well soon. I am now off to an appointment with the shower and making the beds (something Mr. Swiss always did, but has now become my chore). There will also be a little bit of house cleaning involved of course.
And our Jura mountains are still there in the background.
