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.
