Good Morning

I am hoping for a bit of sun today. Yesterday was such a dreary day, and not very warm. I can hear you knocking at the door Autumn and I am sure you will soon be here. The tree opposite already has some red edges on the leaves.

Otherwise I was in action this morning. We have a window that is being renewed in the kitchen. It had a cat flap built into it and through the tension caused by it in the glass, a crack occurred in the window. We repaired it with sellotape, thinking one day there will be no cat flap and we will then get a new window. Now the time has come. Tabby, our last feline, left us a couple of months ago for her 10th life and our village tradesman is organising the new window. This morning he came along to get the right measurements for ordering the new window which will be delivered in a couple of weeks. He is a super guy and is very reliable. He was only here for about a quarter of an hour.

Now life is back to normal and the week begins again. Yesterday I did not go so far, but went for a wheelie in my chair around our part of the village.

I wheeled past one of the next door neighbour’s villas. It looks like something from a Hollywood film with its large size and the garden with the tree avenue. It used to belong to the founder of a company, but he passed away some time ago, and it was bought. I never see anyone actually that lives there, but now and again there are gardeners at work.

I met these two rabbits sitting in a garden on my way. They were not very active, just sitting and watching. They looked quite well fed.

There was a third rabbit, but kept himself to himself and did not mix with the other two.

There are always good views to be had in our village with the backdrop of the Jura mountains. When you leave our estate, it is mostly open farmland and farmhouses.

I had a look to see if there were any cows around, but the field was empty except for the hay trough, which was also empty. It seems the cows are now restricted to their various barns and are doing the night shift on the fields.

I was only away for about an hour yesterday and when I returned home I decided to bake some small cakes. I had a fresh lemon and made some lemon cakes which everyone was happy about.

No. 2 son was on the telephone. It was his eldest son’s birthday yesterday, 3 years old. Time really flies quickly, and now No. 2 granddaughter will be a year old in November. It is lovely to see them even if only on the messenger.

Today I will be on a shopping trip this afternoon. Otherwise I will just be pottering around at home playing housewife. Have a good beginning to the week.

    • I am trying to work out where to put my orchids. They all flowered together this summer and still have their flowers. Indoors they would have enough light and everything, but Mr. Swiss tends to close the blinds in the living room when the sun shines on the window which would not be so good. I will have to put them in another room.

  2. Good afternoon, Your pictures are downloading. It will be a lot cooler today with possibly a wind storm. Nice for the Labor Day plans. For oldies it is just another day. A lot of sales started and the schools will begin. Have a relaxing evening.

    • It was quite cool here, although when the sun arrived it got warmer. We do not have Labour Day, but 1st May is the day of the workers, although no big deal. Every day is the same for golden oldies. Our schools have already started and a few classes in Switzerland are already in isolation because of the virus.

  3. We’ve been having beautiful weather — except without rain. Today, though, it darkened up and I think we may get some rain tomorrow. Everything is very dry. Without some rain, we won’t get much of an autumn. The leaves will just turn brown and fall off.

    We have a wounded squirrel. When he first crawled onto the feeder, I didn’t think he’d survive. His tail was almost naked — probably as the result of a fight and one of his rear legs is just hanging. He clearly can’t use it. Yet somehow, every day, he climbs up onto the deck and gets a few hours of seeds. His tail is beginning to fill out some and I leave water for him to drink, but that rear leg is useless. I’m pretty sure if he didn’t come here to eat, he’d have died.

    I don’t know fi I’m doing him a favor or not. That bad leg doesn’t look like it will get better. I’d catch him if I thought I could and keep him caged because I’m afraid winter will kill him, but he disappears when I come on the deck. Nature is not always kind.

    • Our trees are beginning to change their colour, very slowly, but nothing if you did not expect it. Animals have a way of carrying on when injured. I remember our Fluffy who became blind but still going his way somehow. However if such animals did not have help they would stand no chance of survival. I notice that the weather iis no longer so warm and there are more clouds
