Good Morning

Same old sun rising in the morning and same old blue skies with the promise of a good day. A bit of a lazy Sunday morning, but I am finally here. Actually I had a dizzy spell when I stopped hugging the bed. I get them now and again, the last one was a few months ago. I have to be careful sometimes when lifting my head in the morning – always look ahead. Anyhow I have tablets, so no problem. My neurologist tells me it has nothing to do with my MS, but the balance from the ear, good old Meniere is back again. However I have my tablets and with luck it will disappear in a week, perhaps a little more. Another golden oldie problem to be conquered.

Yesterday was really a day of rest. I was thinking about going into town, but realised it was not necessary. I have enough supplies to last for a month, so I just took it easy. My scooter was getting low on the battery, although I could probably have easily done a trip somewhere, and the wheelchair can be a bit complicated sometimes, although that also has its advantages.

So allI have to show are the current events at home. My orchids are still flowering. They have been doing so since at least three months for the second time in their lives and do not seem to think about giving up.

New buds, one after the other are regularly appearing.

I have two orchids which are still laying dormant and then I saw this appear on one of the stalks. I think it will become a flower stalk eventually, perhaps two stalks. Another success I hope. I have had orchids for at least 10 years but never had success with new flowers. This year I am even getting cramped for space on my table outside.

So what shall I do today. Perhaps I might pay a visit to the cows, they are my neighbours. I might even persuade Mr. Swiss to come with me. What a romantic journey side by side in our respective scooters. We could have a race, but as they are the same models, more than 10-11 kilometers per hour as not possible.

Or perhaps we could visit the chickens. I am sure they are missing us. I should really get out and about to enjoy the good early Autumn weather we now have.

First of all I have a few things to do at home. I made a mess in the oven yesterday due to a new tray I bought which makes everything more crispy. The crispy bit works, but it is adjustable to the size of the oven and that does not work so well. Mr. Swiss is now developing a system to fix it in the right place in the oven.

Otherwise nothing really exciting at the moment. Have a good Sunday and make the most of it. See you around.

  1. Good morning. The photos of the orchids are incredible, So much light on the petals of the blooms. Have a great day. Tomorrow is Monday .. the beginning of the new week. We have the big football game tonight with Tom Brady returning as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer … I don’t usually watch football on TV but he is older now so I will tune in just to see if he still has the spark. I have learned that with Motrin … all things are possible … That will be our Sunday afternoon. My wife thinks I am crazy because I never watch football. So we will see how good a game it is. Take care. SLP …

    • I would love to watch a football game again, soccer of course. No chance at the moment, although the season is beginning in a few weeks in England, so let’s see.. My orchids are really developing well.


    • My orchids are really doing so well. They were chicken photos from last week. The farmer had moved his mobile chicken house next to the hedge bordering the cemetery and they somehow got out. They were having a love time, settling between the graves in the grass and it was coincidence that I happened to be on a walk with my camera. The next day the mobile chicken house was no longer there, but in a place further away. I think the farmer had to collect his chickens one by one and put them where they belonged. Not a good a idea to have chickens living in the cemetery.

  2. Good afternoon. Your orchids are lovely my still are green and no signs of a flower. It is really smokey out and no relief until next week. I run the air filter during the day. I do follow baseball and our football. Good luck with your new oven tray. Have a good evening.

    • I have really been lucky with my orchids this year and I think I now have the idea of how to get them to flower again: fresh air and fertiliser. I heard you might be getting some rain, which I hope for you to clear the air. Just got back from a tour around the village, lovely weather, clear skies and very hot.

  3. Good afternoon.
    Those orchids have really been impressive. I was just looking at my cymbidiums yesterday. Someone at work gave me a white one, which I intend to take very good care of. My primary orchid has been with me for many years, and gotten divided and shared with many neighbors. However, the few white orchids that I got from Brent’s clients (after they finish blooming on their porches) have not done well for me.
