Good Morning

img_1276

I found a sunrise this morning and some fluffy little clouds to accompany it. What a way to rise and shine, although I am not shining so much. Today is again day of the fresh bed linen, meaning a later start. With my usual sense of activity, my duvet and cushion are already covered. I think Mr. Swiss has also done his as well. Now for a pause with breakfast and a blog and afterwards to finish the job. It has all become routine throughout the years, although it still takes time as I have become a little slower.

Look what I found in my garden this morning. The first rose of Summer, although technically speaking it is not quite summer yet, but the roses could not wait and neither could I. There are many buds on this climbing rose, and there are a some others also showing signs of pink, but this one made it. Perhaps not quite entirely open, but it is doing its best.

Otherwise I was again on a shopping journey yesterday for this and that. I am managing quite well with the wheelchair in the store, just a matter of routine. Mr. Swiss always worried when I was on my way by car and it does not change very much with a wheelchair, although up to now I do not need a driving licence and after 4 years practice it is nothing new for me. I have a straight run to the store from my home of five minutes and now know where everything is. When I am finished with everything and have packed the bags I give them to the desk. My collectors subscription is now active, so all I have to do is give a form to the supermarket, they call the collectors and I do not have to do anything else except for roll on home. Half an hour later the guy rings the bell and gives me my two bags of shopping.

I also went a step further yesterday evening. My supermarket chain also deliver online, but since the corona began to float around everyone was ordering online. As the corona is now at a basic minimum of about 5-10 new cases per day and our hospitals only have 2 or 3 cases to care for, the service has improved, although I got a delivery date for a week, which is no problem. I only order online non perishables and standard items which are bulky and difficult to carry (mineral water packs, Toilet rolls, heavy litter bags for my cat’s tray etc.) They used to be able to deliver the next day, but that is now a thing of the past and you automatically get the next free slot available, but with very detailed times and a date.

I seem to be on a new learning curve. This afternoon I want to take a wheelie into town. I have only a few things to get, and the store there also has a butchers for fresh meat to buy. I also have a couple of items in another store. I do not mind and am always glad to do something different. Luckily the weather has held for the past week and no rain in sight. That would mean I would take the local road train to the store with my walker, which is also no great problem.

Although the store I now use is smaller than the one I had before, the selection is good and there is plenty of space to wheel around. It is also very rarely crowded.

As I leave the store I also manage to get a few camera shots of the near surroundings. Looking down the road I have a glimpse of our cathedral tower with the public platform.

And now to continue with recovering the beds with fresh linen, lifting the frame to get the dust out from below (although there is almost none) and otherwise deal with a few small household tasks. A woman’s work is never done, but we would be bored if it was I suppose.

Keep well everyone, Trust to see you around a little later.

    • The local store is too small for flowers etc. but today I was in our town shopping and that store is bigger and they have plenty of plants to sell. I had fun today shopping and visited a couple of other stores in town, and they all have garden departments, so no lack of photos of plants.

  1. Bed change day for me too. I find the effort of putting of a king-size duvet into its cover is getting too much, even with two of us and clips to hold everything in place. I’m considering unpicking the side seams and sewing poppers (press studs) down each side. Then I’ll only have to lay the open cover on the bed, add the duvet, fold the top cover over and click everything in place. One day maybe . . .

    • We have two Swiss size single beds side by side as is the common custom here, meaning two duvet to cover and cushions. I have to do it all myself as Mr. Swiss can no longer manage so well, but he can do his own duvet cover. Probably it is easier as it is a single duvet, although still quite large. We have a zip at each end. I just take the inverted duvet cover, grip the two corners of the duviet with it and shake it over the duvet and it is done. They just do the zip up. My biggest problem is putting the fitted undersheets on the mattress.

      • We bought a new mattress a few years ago, deeper than the old one, and I had to replace all my fitted sheets. I’m definitely going to try poppers along each side – I’ve just ordered 100 and they’ll be here in two weeks :-/

  2. It must be evening there now as it is afternoon here and it is 81 degrees F. and expected to reach 89 F. Yor cat posts had me smiling and laughing as I read them. I have been struggling most of the morning with a post on my blog. I did get the FOTD done. We find out today whether we can start phase 3. Have a good evening.

  3. Call me crazy, but I think your photography has moved up a big notch. the landscape with the rayed sun is glorious!

    Garry and I were hoping to get to the river this week, but somehow, the week got weirdly busy. I bought more flour and yeast and decided I need to back more. I probably should have done this in colder weather. I hope you two are doing okay. We re in the middle of heavy oak pollen season. All three of us are really allergic, so going out is great, until you breathe.

    Maybe next wee?

    • Intake most of my photos with my new iPhone. They have Made a great improvement on the lens. Since being careless I often take photos on the way to the local store. I am out almost every day and am glad the weather is keeping good..
