Good Morning

I got here eventually. Tuesday is always a little later due to the cleaning lady seeing to my kitchen, bathroom and shower and me polishing up the windows. I just do not like dirty windows. Now everything is almost bright and shiny and dinner is cooking, so what could be better.

Yesterday afternoon I was in town for some shopping and it was really a wonderful afternoon. The sun was shining and we had 22° C. Some people were wearing short sleeves and even short trousers, although when you ride a scooter it can get quite breezy so I decided to stay with the jacket and wrap up warm. I also noticed that two flies appeared. I thought we were now fly free until next year, but it seems the warm weather has encouraged them to have a premature birth.

The restaurants still have seating outside, but you see less people. I had to make an extra excursion to the chemist for Mr. Swiss, picked up his medicine, and then to another store where they sell what he needs for a smoke. This afternoon I will also be in town, but with no great shopping to do. I finished my bottle of white cooking wine this morning so will have to replenish it, also in another store, although I have a reserve large bottle in my store in the cellar. I like to use wine for meat dishes to enrich the taste.

I had to send No. 1 son to the post office to return a parcel. I ordered a vegetable chopping machine which also does a few other things from my online cookery site and discovered it did not work: had no electric connection. The company said I could exchange it in the store that supplies them, but our particular store is in another village and without a car I cannot get there. I was then sent labels to return it (free of postage) and I got the replacement. However, this one had the same problem, so the carousel of returning it started again. I told them I do not want another new one and have returned it. I have now ordered one from another manufacturer who I know are a reliable company and hope this time I will be lucky.

I suppose I cannot go without a comment about the voting in the States. I could say may the best man win, but honestly speaking there is no great choice. Trump is a clear case of the wrong man in the wrong place. I have also heard a few negative remarks about Biden. The world is changing and not in a good way.

I am now off, my family will otherwise go hungry. May you have a good day, keep safe.

The weather really did supply a great light yesterday over our local mountain range.

  1. Good morning … another beautiful day in sunny Switzerland !!! The photo of the building with the blue shutters is really nice. Pretty color blue, a lot of texture in the composition. Have a great day .. and offer a little prayer for peace … SLP …

    • Today was not such a beautiful day, it was raining and very dull. We have all varieties of colours on our wooden shutters. As we live in a newer building we just have the normal grey metal shutters to lower. A bit of a boring day today, but I managed to get a few things done that have been hovering around for some time, my online shopping list.


  2. Good afternoon, I am praying for the right choice and the losing side takes the message correctly without rioting and violence. Our caregiver situation is a mess. It is hazy and cold out and another fire is burning in the mountains. Stay safe and pray for PEACE.

    • From my side of the world it is not sure who will win or lose in your electiions. All I know is that it used to be a safer world, but now everything is so uncertain. Rain today after a wondereful sunny day yesterday and rain tomorrow it seems.


  3. Someday someone will come and clean for me. But until that day, it gets done when I can do it … and when things don’t hurt too much. Today is an all day doctor thing, so gotta go. Wanted to say hello before we leave!

    • I only eventually gave in to have a cleaning lady when I realised that I was no longer fit enough to do certain things, especially clean my water rooms such as bath and shower. Mr. Swiss said I should have a cleaning lady and I must admit he was right. I was lucky to find such a wonderful person and she does the work so well and efficiently. My neighbour was also looking for someone, so now my cleaning lady is doing her place as well.


  4. GADS! The election was such a game show! You would think that with all the millions of people in America, and all those involved with the Democratic Party, that we could find someone ANYONE who is more qualified than what we end up with. I know that Mr. Biden is a nice and likeable guy, but really, there are so many more who lack all the baggage.

      • That seems to be the consensus outside of America. It is even more prominent of a sentiment in countries that have historically exploited America, such as Mexico. However, President Trump is not as unpopular as outsiders think, and Biden is not as popular as would seem. Although I really find President Trump to be (very) objectionable, I am also aware that he did several good things for America, and could have done more if the Covid 19 did not destroy the economy. President Obama was very likeable and very popular, even among those of us who were none too keen on him. However, he did very little for America, other than be a nice guy. I do not expect much more from President Biden. Even though he is a nice guy and very likeable, I am not so keen on him as President.
