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.
