RDP Tuesday: Dreamy


Perhance to dream?
No Hamlet, there is too much noise
The heavens have opened
the thunder enjoys
No chance of a sleep
To relax and wander
To trouble your mind
with thoughts to squander
Enjoy noise of rain
It’s tumbling down
Squelching of tyres
Going to town
And now another clap
Perhaps ready to go
The sun might arrive
And form a rainbow
The dreams have dispersed
In droplets of rain
Just close your eyes
And try it again

RDP Tuesday: Dreamy

Good Morning


And what a lovely morning it is with blue skies in between after a rain shower in the early morning which really was good for the garden and the plants: and what a great view from my porch, even if there is a building there. As I sit here I have the smell of lunch cooking in the kitchen.

I am a bit stranded at the moment as the battery in my wheelchair is no longer so dependable, but the good news is that I will be getting my new battery for the wheelchair tomorrow, meaning I will again be mobile. On the other hand I am still toying with the idea of a scooter as Mr. Swiss has. I have discovered that the scooter also has an attachment for my walker to take with me, and also a very good firm protective cover against rain. My mind is almost made up and I will be practicing with Mr. Swiss scooter this week. I could go shopping with the scooter, park it outside the store and otherwise be more mobile with my walker in the store. 


I was missing some photos on my last excursion to the local farm. Luckily they were still in my camera, although nothing special. Just a few chickens enjoying the fresh air,.


Even the rooster was keeping an eye on everything.


On my way to the local store I always pass this church on the road and on the left of it there is a senior home. It is all quite near where I live. Even one of my ex neighbours lives in the home.


We even have a stonemason on the road home. I think he has supplied all of the gravestones in the local cemetery.

At the moment my cleaning lady is here doing the necessary. I feel almost a little guilty cooking after she has finished in the kitchen. My No. 1 son now has three weeks holiday, so he is also at home. Usually he would now be on his annual two week holiday in Italy, but this year corona has taken over everything, and Italy is not exactly the best place to be at the moment. However, he is quite happy to hug the bed a little longer in the morning and spend the afternoons taking a trip into town. He no longer goes anywhere in the evening and I am glad. You have to be so careful with this virus floating around.

Otherwise life seems to slowly be getting back to normal in our little country, although keeping a good distance is still the No 1 criteria and being masked on public transport.  You see masked people now and again in public, but not so many


I managed to take a photo of a butterfly yesterday in the garden. It is nothing special, but it was nice of her/him to keep still for the moment.


And I am now on my way to finish the daily meal. Keep safe and well, see you around.

Landscape Aare path 02.07.2020

Our local landscapes have paths everywhere. Just keep the cars away and everyone is happy. They have a road going through the village if they need something. Our villagers are a walking people so we like to keep the paths neat and tidy. Now and again you have to move on one side to let the bicycles pass bye, or perhaps for me, in a wheelchair.
