Good Morning

img_2114

A mixture of good clouds and the sun rising over the local trees, what could be better to welcome my day. The beginning of a new week, and I hope it will be a good one. At the moment I am a little restricted in my movements, waiting for a new battery for my wheelchair. The one I have is functioning OK as long as I stay on my usual flat stretches, but I do not trust it completely when it has to climb a little higher. Yesterday I chanced a trip to the local castle and it worked OK, but I noticed a little decline in power as I reached the castle and it was only a gradual climb. As I returned towards home it was downhill and everything back to normal. Changing the battery is a matter of half an hour and the guy will do it for me at home, but last week it seems they had no suitable batteries, and so I have be told this week. I hope it will be soon. Just visiting the local supermarket for shopping is OK, but I do like to go to town now and again.

So it is just local views from the top of the hill towards the villages South of ours. You can see the chicken pen at the front of the picture and our village church at the left of it. Otherwise it was really a lazy Sunday with no great excitement. Mr. Swiss accompanied me on my wheelie in his scooter which is really good. At last he can get out a little more.

I also took a short cut through the cemetery, but there was not very much action there.

The only movement was a flock of birds that decided to give a fly past.

Otherwise my evening entertainment was one of those adventure films, Raiders of the Lost tomb, based on one of those Lara Croft computer games, but with real humans playing the roles. I must admit I quite enjoyed watching it, although it was not exactly the height of intelligence: lots of treacherous paths in the tomb and eventually the discovering of a dead queen coffin. Lara Croft escaped at the last moment and I found she would have been a good candidate for the Olympic Games in sprint the way she raced through the tomb at the end being followed by one catastrophe after the other. The only injury she seemed to have was on her arm that was constantly in a small bandage, but I have no idea what it was. I ask myself why I bother with such films.

And now for some action of the day whilst my other half sits in a chair and studies his iPad. I also study my iPhone, but only to add to my shopping list which reminds me I still have to write one. The excitement of daily life is planning what to buy and eat.

I now should move on. For some strange reason I decided that I should clean my oven today. I keep meaning to do it, but somehow forget. I do like to see through the glass door what is cooking without avoiding the trial of  marks of previous cooked dishes.

Have a good day everyone and hope you have a good week ahead.

    • It happened two weeks ago, yes. I was on red, and then the horn went and dead. Luckily a couple saw me and I was just approaching my block. They offered help, we could release the lock on the chair and they pushed me home. that will never happen again to me and now I just don’t trust it so much as the battery(ies – there are two) are 2-1/2 years old and ready to be replaced. I am not going anywhere this week until the guy comes with the new batteries.

  2. Today is a vet visit for Piper, my middle child. Luckily, last year she was given a 3-year rabies vaccine, so no jabs this year. I remember how much Tabby disliked those jabs. I picture her smiling at Piper and saying, ‘You’re a lucky one this year, Piper.” Have a good day, Pat.

    • I don’t think any cat likes a jab. I can’t remember Tabby having a rabies jab, but they had so many different names. I still have her book and also the other two cats with all their information.

  3. Good afternoon it is going to be another hot day, however, there is a cool breeze. Windows are close before heat of the day. I hope your new battery arrives very soon so you can on your way again. Cherry tomatoes are turning red. I am enjoying my new Chromebook very much, it will save my fingers though I am grateful that they are twisted with a lot of calcium. Stay safe!

  4. Life is too weird. It’s VERY hot here. Meanwhile, we are (I hope) getting a mortgage from a BIG company which went back into lockdown today and I hope we pass appraisal. It really is too strange. Our area is doing well, but for how long? New England is one of the few places in the country that isn’t going into worse COVID numbers … and they just closed my favorite clothing store. I think I’m in denial. I’ve been buying from them for 20 years.

    So weird. Oh, and it’s also very humid. And the air is bad because the humidity has no breeze. I’m trying to deal with life, but i’m not sure what life IS anymoe.

    • Temperatures are hot here, but nothing out of the ordinary for this time of the year. The mornings is very pleasant outside. Hope your mortgage turns out OK. Corvid was going up again in Switzerland a little but yesterday again went down with about 70 new cases – no bad for a eight million population I suppose. They closed my favourite clothing store about a year ago, but I have discovered that I only need something OK when I go out to town which is 3-4 times a week.
      Everything is a bit annoying at the moment with a few problems to overcome.
