Good Morning


It is a sunrise without a sun, so who knows what will happen. I have already made a mess on the kitchen table, but my fault really. I had to replenish the supply of jam for breakfast last week and decided on raspberry flavour. Unfortunately I made a wrong grip on the supermarket shelf and now have raspberry jelly instead of jam. It tastes OK, and it will be eaten, but it really flops everywhere. Jelly does not stick so well to the breakfast slice, but I will persevere until eaten.


Yesterday I again ventured into the outside world in the afternoon. I had been housebound all week except for my shopping safaris and I made the choice to go for a wheelie in my chair, although I really had to push my lazy self. I decided a visit to the surroundings where the fox and hedgehogs say goodnight to each other. The first part of the journey, on the other side of the local railway lines is a field where horses often graze.

This time I was lucky, the farmer had in that moment let them all out for the afternoon, and they were stretching their legs. Generally I only see them grazing, but this time I caught them in action.


Afterwards, when they had calmed down I managed to get a group picture. It was a beautiful afternoon: a little on the cold side, but I was wrapped up warm enough. I moved on through the cemetery although not a very lively place.


I followed the stream that runs though it and noticed how the catkins had now developed. The stream was carrying quite a lot of water. It was probably a combination of the rain we had lately and the melting snow from the heights. Although we had very little snow this year, it only snowed twice, it is always snowing in the higher Jura mountain slopes. Our town cemetery has a bit of everything, even a stream runs through it.


I wheeled on and noticed that the stables on the other side of the cemetery had also let the horses out to graze. This is the one and only pony they have which also can be hired for the kids to ride.

I set myself a time limit for my wheelie as when I begin to take photos of this and that I tend to forget myself. I arrived home in the middle of the afternoon and decided to upload my 100 photos  first of all. One of the problems with digital photography is that you click constantly, thinking the next photo will be better than the last, adding to the amount to be uploaded. However, Sunday is a good day for it as I do not make an evening meal. It is everyone for their self and the fridge has enough supplies. I usually sit at the dining table in the living room with one eye on the TV and the other on the computer with food on the side.

And now to move on. This morning nothing special is planned, but I like to get my housework done. I also have a shopping list to compile for this afternoon’s escapades. Have a good start to the week, may it be a good one. My smart phone has just told me that I had 7% less screen time last week. I really do not know where it gets this information as I work on two different computers and an iPad in between. Is it just my apple computer or my Microsoft computer.

I leave you with a view of the Alps from yesterday’s journey taken from the top of the hill where the local castle is. They were especially looking  good with the cloud covers.

    • The mountains were particularly beautiful yesterday and so were the clouds. And today it only rained once, it began in the morning and it is still raining


  1. It’s funny how these grey mornings have bits of blue sky, but somehow the sun never seems to make it through the cloud cover. We’ve got a crazy busy week with primary elections tomorrow and then Garry’s doctor and the next day my doctor. I’m insanely tired and if I don’t get a night’s sleep one of these days, I’m just going to fall down. Maybe after Wednesday when they are “inspecting” my pacemaker and supposedly teaching me how to get checked by telephone. I can’t tell you how nervous that makes me. Oh well.

    Did you hear that Trump told us that coronavirus will automatically disappear in April? I can hardly wait.

    • Our weather has not been so friendly lately. I have a stupid appointment with my autistic son at theclinic on Thirsday at quarter to one midday. And I should cook lunch for all? It will be amasterpiece of Organisation.i am making spaghetti so Mr, Swiss can eat and my son and I will warm it when we get home again about three in the afternoon. It is all about funding when we golden oldies are no longer and my younger son can cope.
      Trumpis an idiot.


  2. The filbert catkins are delightful. I just (Wednesday) wrote about the destruction of three camellias and a nice filbert that I had groomed and pruned into a neatly tailored specimen. (It is not a pleasant post.) The filberts there are more closely related to those that are grown for nuts. The native filbert here only makes a few very small nuts.
