Good Morning


Basically I suppose when you are a golden oldie, time no longer matters. There is nothing waiting for you, you can please yourself, eat, sleep and live how you want to, although it just does not always work like that. I like to rise in the morning with time on my hands, enjoy the sun rise, potter around, organise the daily rituals like breakfast, computer and afterwards putting everything in order. Unfortunately it does not always work like that. Perhaps there is a residue of Sunday morning lay-ins left, but this morning I was having an adventure dream, something to do with chauffeuring a character from the East Enders soap series (Max Branning of all people) and suddenly the alarm rang. Yes I still have one, why I do not know. Anyhow I slept for a further half an hour decided to find out what happened with my car journey which was actually in the village of Bellach, were I used to work. The dream really did continue but then Mr. Swiss decided to stop hugging the bed and I eventually joined him. At least I had a little adventure in my dreams at the beginning of the day.

As you can see I managed to capture my morning sunrise although a little later, it had already risen, but a good start to the day. So after boring you all with my dreams and moving sleep life it is now back to reality.


I dragged myself into town yesterday afternoon on a wheelie in my chair. It is strange how the sunlight in late Winter seems to illuminate the same scenes in a different way. This was the beginning of my voyage along the side path to the local railway tracks with the main road on the right. Sometimes a train might pass bye, but this time it was a quiet afternoon.


There were some horses grazing on the field over the fence next to the railway tracks. It seems there is a landowner that probably hires out his stables to various horse owners, although perhaps he breeds them as now and again he has foals on the field.


This time there were just a few horses grazing on the field.


I decided to take the long way round to town this time going through the area with various religious buildings, but always the Jura mountains in the background.


This is one of the chapels in the middle of the green fields. In spring the fields are used as agricultural planting space, but always with a different crop. Last year it was wheat, but the year before it was sunflowers, hundreds of them as far as the eye could see. I am hoping for something colourful this year, but currently the grass is growing and leaving a peaceful scenery for a quiet meander through the area.


If you continue you eventually enter the town through the back door, and the first large building you see is the reform church. Both my two sons were christened there. The other building on the right is the Kantons Bank, I mean we are in Switzerland and banks are everywhere: also a form of religion for the wealthy.

And so I continued on my wheelie enjoyed the sights and fresh air and eventually wheeled on home. I had a chicken to cook for the evening meal and a few thoughts to register on my computer.

And now I should really get on with my morning, the world is not only computers  and blogs, but there are things happening all around me. Two crows are having a discussion in front of my window about who gets the first choice of peanuts and walnuts and in between I am capturing the moment with my camera.

Have a good Sunday everyone, may it be a good one without stress.


I leave you with a photo of two interesting bushes I saw on my way home yesterday, capturing the shadows of a lamppost caused by the brilliant sunshine.

  1. I am coming up on my last week of working. My last day is Valentine’s Day, and then I retire. One of my first things to do will be to turn off my alarm clock. I cannot wait!!

    • I can imagine how you are looking forward to it. It’s a big step to something unknown, but I am sure you will have fun. Even the alarm clock has a new meaning. you can ignore it.

  2. Good morning the skies are clear and it looks like a sunning day. I continue to marvel at how different our lives were and yet they similar now. Farm animal they were so common I don’t of them at all. I see so many farm animals and while we did not live on a farm I saw them often. I do understand why you like them. H a good week.

    • Growing up in London the only animals we saw were cats and dogs and sparrows and pigeons. Now I am surrounded by farms with horses, pigs and cows and am loving it. The wind is picking up here and it seems that we will be getting a gale from Scotland this evening. Warnings have been given.

  3. Great photos … it is true time does not matter as much when you are older … but beware … my mother (who is currently 101 …) got into a thing where her naps extended such that she was sleeping all day and then up all night .. and feeling sorry for herself because my sister and everybody else … who worked for a living … were sleeping. So from personal experience I have learned to beware of that. I also take naps now that I am retired, I am up at 5 to see my wife out to her work, then around 11 I doze for about an hour, and again at 3, but after that I keep busy so that I am tired by 9 or 10 when it is time to go to bed. Take care and have a great day … SLP …

    • I am usually up around 7.30-45 in the morning, but this morning I was sleeping too well. I have noticed with my MS that I usually sleep well and there is no danger that I would be awake during the night and sleep all day. I just have to have my 1-2 hours after lunch and then everything is fine. I can stay awake until my bed time with no problem.
