At least I think it is.

She always began with the pollen on the side of the flower. Her back legs were then not so heavy. When she got to the top of the flower she really needed all her strength to fly off with the filled pouches and the weight was not pulling her down so much.
I was on my way in my wheelchair with Mr. Swiss behind me on his scooter. We were just taking it easy cruising along and I was armed with my camera snapping a few shots. I then saw this guy on his motor bike construction. He seemed to be enjoying the almost empty Sunday roads.
I like to have my little routine during the day. If no-one interferes and lets me to get on with it it’s fine. Today was just like Easy on Sunday Morning.
Looking for pairs I stumbled across this photo in my archives. Actually it brings back many memories. It belongs to a supermarket I often visited and this is the original style. As it is today, many stores renew their appearance and this is the original form. This particular perspective of the escalator no longer exists, the store having been renovated and re-organised since, but I remember travelling on it often.
It is certainly a sunny one this morning and it looks like we are having a week of sunshine with high temperatures according to the weather prophets. I do not mind. I prefer something constant from daily changes when you really do not know whether to go out and take the rain jacket with you.
Yesterday I only made a short excursion to the local store. It is the smallest branch we have, but I am discovering that their choice is just as good as the store in town. It was only opened last year in November, so quite modern in interior design with plenty of space for wheeling around in my chair, light and air. Their choices of groceries are also very good and always fresh. Even their meat is quite good, although only pre-packed. I suppose employing qualified butcher would weigh down on their budget. However I was on the quest for veal slices yesterday to chop for my vol-au-vent cases and found just what I needed. My collectors also pick up the goods and bring them home to me within an hour, so I am quite satisfied.
There is not such a great choice of photos on the way, although I stopped to take a photo of this side road on my way home. It is perhaps nothing special, although a good view of the Jura in the backround, but we lived in this road for about 5 years before moving to where we are now. We were on the fouth floor and I had a good view from the kitchen window in the morning of the planes arriving and departing from Zürich airport in the distance as we seemed to be near the flight paths. It was also quite near to town for shopping. I suppose we leave our traces everywhere eventually.
Unless one day forced to enter a senior home, the place where I now live I am hoping will be my final residence.
Even the neighbour’s cat arrives regularly at the same time in the evening to perhaps have a sleep on the porch, or otherwise check on the territory. He used to lay on one side of the garden and my cat Tabby on the other. Tabby left us for the eternal corn chambers in his tenth life at the age of 18 about a month ago, but Roschti still visits. I am not superstitious, but sometimes I can still see Tabby laying in her favourite positions today.
I noticed on my way home from the store yesterday that preparations are already being made for our national day on 1st August which I have just noticed will be on a Saturday, meaning the stores will be closed and I will have to make preparations for meals over the week-end in advance. The flags are already hanging on the main road: the Swiss cross on the national flag and the one next to it is the flag of our village in green with a fountain on it. The name of the village is Feldbrunnen, meaning field fountain, although no-one really knows where the fountain was, although we do have a trough on the main square.
Admittedly it is nothing special, but the dogs quite appreciate it for a drink in between.
Being a Sunday I am taking it easy, although still have a few odd jobs to do. Enjoy the day, relax, and make the most of it.

Enjoying life and the empty nest while easing into retirement,
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
